Reseller Hosting Description

There are a lot of means of gaining money online and one of them is to sell the shared hosting solutions furnished by a certain hosting packages provider. This provides endless opportunities for everyone who wishes to make more profit. There are different sorts of reseller hosting solutions, based on the web hosting reseller's level of involvement and, of course, on the web hosting vendor that offers the hosting service. Before looking into that, let's first analyze

What is a reseller hosting service?

A reseller hosting solution is a sort of web hosting user account, which enables the user to create separate subaccounts that can be sold to different customers. This is generally accomplished by bestowing the user with access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can set up separate web hosting accounts availing of the hosting server disk space provided by the reseller hosting package, for which he pays a certain fee. This is a lot like the shared hosting solution and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, a lot of hosting reseller accounts share one and the same web server and do not get complete root-level access to the server configuration files. Such reseller programs are normally not that costly. However, they do impede the resellers from distributing other forms of web hosting solutions aside from shared plans.

Different forms of reseller hosting solutions

Apart from the already mentioned way of reseller hosting packages, there are also several different schemes that work just as fine. Still, they contrast in terms of the levels of participation and the amount of funds that each one of them demands. As already stated, the most common mode of selling web hosting solutions offers you limited options and you risk losing your capital if things go wrong. This is the reason why, larger hosting service providers like provide different ways of reselling hosting accounts without the need to buy anything beforehand, or to even take care of the provision of technical and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the reseller registers for free and selects his own personal retail prices for the web hosting packages, which are being sold directly from his web storefront. Because billing transactions are handled by's staff, the client does not have to pay for the web hosting service beforehand. He's merely going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the chance to resell hosing services such as VPS hosting, semi-dedicated hosting and dedicated hosting. More or less, his role comes down to promoting the service and providing support to the end clients and with hosting vendors that do not require upfront installments and deal with the invoicing and technical support provision, the sole task left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his private brand's web store. Another possibility will be to create separate user accounts on a VPS web server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of web hosting service providers, you may obtain those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to create various shared hosting accounts and exert complete authority over both the clients and the hosting server itself. Also, on a dedicated hosting server, you may set up various private virtual web hosting server accounts and offer them to your clients. One dedicated web hosting server may accommodate 1000's of VPS hosting accounts, depending on the server's capacity. This will enable you to offer a bigger array of hosting services to your customers, which will present you with more alternatives when advertising your online store. By all means, using a private virtual web server or a dedicated hosting server for reseller hosting objectives is much more costly than having a regular reseller hosting user account. Because of this, this opportunity should be considered only on condition that the hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and training demanded to manage a server, otherwise it's recommendable to either register for an ordinary reseller hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by, which requires less involvement from the web hosting reseller.
