Reseller Web Hosting Revealed

There are plenty of means of gaining cash on the Internet and one of them is to sell the hosting services supplied by a certain web hosting distributor. This offers unlimited opportunities for everyone who would like to make extra revenue. There are different varieties of reseller web hosting solutions, based on the hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the hosting company that provides the web hosting service. Before looking into that, let us first explore

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A reseller web hosting solution is a type of web hosting user account, which allows the user to create various sub-accounts that can be offered to various clients. This is typically achieved by bestowing the user with access to a master reseller web hosting account, via which he can create separate web hosting accounts availing of the server hard disk storage space included in the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a certain price. This is much similar to the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, many hosting reseller accounts share one and the very same server and do not receive full root access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller hosting programs are generally not that expensive. Yet, they do prevent the resellers from supplying other forms of web hosting services beside shared web hosting plans.

Different forms of reseller web hosting solutions

Beside the already mentioned way of reseller web hosting accounts, there are also a few other setups that work just as fine. Yet, they contrast in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of funds that each of them demands. As already stated, the most common method of reselling hosting services offers you limited possibilities and you risk losing your investment if things go wrong. That is the reason why, bigger hosting corporations such as offer alternative ways of reselling web hosting packages without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even cope with the provision of customer and billing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the reseller registers free of cost and defines his own personal retail prices for the web hosting plans, which are being offered straight from his web storefront. As invoicing transactions are handled by's personnel, the client does not need to purchase the service upfront. He's only going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to distribute hosing solutions such as VPS packages, semi-dedicated packages and dedicated package. More or less, his duty involves promoting the hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting suppliers that do not request upfront installments and tackle the invoicing and client support provision, the sole duty left for the hosting reseller will be to advertise his private brand's online store. Another alternative will be to set up different accounts on a VPS hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With most providers, you may obtain those two web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting Control Panel, already installed on them. That will permit you to set up various shared web hosting plans and exercise complete authority over both the customers and the web server itself. What is more, on a dedicated web server, you may create different VPS web server accounts and sell them to your customers. A single dedicated hosting web server may keep 1000's of virtual private web hosting server accounts, based on the server's specifications. This will permit you to deliver a more extensive array of web hosting services to your customers, which will give you more options when promoting your online storefront. Certainly, using a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server for reseller web hosting aims is much more expensive than having a normal reseller web hosting user account. Because of this, this opportunity should be examined only on condition that the reseller has enough knowledge and training demanded to handle a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either opt for a standard reseller web hosting program, or for the aforementioned Free Reseller Program offered by, which requests less commitment from the reseller.
