How Hosting Reseller Operates

There are many means of gaining cash online and one of them is to sell the shared hosting solutions supplied by a certain provider. This offers unlimited options for everybody who desires to earn supplementary cash. There are different varieties of hosting reseller solutions, depending on the hosting reseller's degree of participation and, of course, on the web hosting distributor that offers the hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first check out

What is a hosting reseller solution?

A hosting reseller solution is a sort of hosting user account, which permits the reseller to set up various subaccounts that can be resold to various clients. This is normally accomplished by furnishing the reseller with access to a master hosting reseller account, via which he can create different web hosting accounts with the hard drive storage space included in the hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given tax. This is much like the shared web hosting solution and precisely like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, lots of hosting reseller accounts share one and the same web hosting server and are not furnished with full root-level access to the web server configuration files. Such reseller web hosting programs are generally not that high-priced. Yet, they do impede the web hosting resellers from furnishing other kinds of web hosting services except shared hosting packages.

Various sorts of hosting reseller solutions

Aside from the aforementioned method of hosting reseller plans, there are also a few different ways that work just as fine. Still, they contrast with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of cash that each one of them involves. As mentioned, the most popular mode of reselling web hosting services gives you restricted options and you risk forfeiting your cash if things go wrong. For that reason, bigger hosts like offer different ways of selling hosting packages without having to pay for anything in advance, or to even become involved in the provision of technical and billing support. With their reseller hosting program, the hosting reseller subscribes free of cost and puts his own retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being offered directly from his web store. Because billing transactions are taken care of by's team, the user does not have to purchase the hosting service beforehand. He's simply going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the possibility to sell hosing services like virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his role entails advertising the hosting service and offering support to the end users and with web hosts that do not request upfront payments and are responsible for the invoicing and customer support provision, the only task left for the hosting reseller will be to promote his personal brand's web storefront. Another option will be to create separate user accounts on a virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated web server. With the majority of hosts, you may get those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to create different shared hosting plans and have full authority over both the customers and the web server itself. What is more, on a dedicated server, you may create various Virtual Private Server accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated web server may accommodate thousands of Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts, based on the web server's specs. This will allow you to provide a more extensive array of web hosting services to your customers, which will give you more options when promoting your online store. Sure enough, using a virtual private web server or a dedicated hosting web server for hosting reseller aims is much more expensive than utilizing a normal hosting reseller account. So, this option should be considered only in case the reseller has enough ability and experience demanded to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for an average hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by, which demands less involvement from the hosting reseller.
