How Hosting Reseller Operates

There are plenty of ways of earning profit on the web and one of them is to sell the website hosting solutions offered by a specific web hosting firm. This offers immense opportunities for everybody who wants to make extra revenue. There are several varieties of hosting reseller solutions, based on the reseller's level of participation and, of course, on the service provider that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first examine

What is a hosting reseller solution?

A hosting reseller service is a kind of hosting account, which allows the user to create different subaccounts that can be resold to different clients. This is commonly accomplished by bestowing the reseller with access to a master hosting reseller account, via which he can set up various web hosting accounts utilizing the hard disk storage space offered by the hosting reseller plan, for which he pays a certain tax. This is much like the shared web hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of hosting reseller programs, numerous reseller hosting accounts share one web server and are not provided with complete root access to the server config files. Such reseller hosting programs are generally not that high-priced. Still, they do bar the hosting resellers from selling other types of hosting solutions except shared web hosting plans.

Different types of hosting reseller solutions

Beside the abovementioned way of hosting reseller accounts, there are also a few different schemes that work just as good. However, they differ in terms of the degrees of commitment and the amount of cash that each one of them demands. As already mentioned, the most popular method of reselling web hosting solutions offers you limited options and you risk forfeiting your cash if things go wrong. For this reason, bigger companies such as provide different ways of reselling hosting packages without having to buy anything beforehand, or to even take care of the provision of customer and billing support. With their program, the reseller subscribes free of cost and defines his very own personal retail prices for the web hosting accounts, which are being sold straight from his web storefront. Since billing transactions are handled by's personnel, the customer does not have to buy the service in advance. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The reseller also has the chance to deliver hosing solutions such as VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated web hosting and dedicated web hosting. More or less, his job involves promoting the service and offering support to the end customers and with web hosting vendors that do not demand preliminary charges and take care of the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole responsibility left for the reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online store. Another possibility will be to set up separate accounts on a virtual web hosting server, or on a dedicated hosting server. With the majority of web hosting corporations, you may obtain those two hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different web hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to set up various shared web hosting packages and exercise complete control over both the users and the web hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated hosting server, you may create different VPS server accounts and offer them to your customers. One dedicated web hosting server may keep thousands of private virtual web server hosting accounts, based on the web server's specifications. This will enable you to offer a larger assortment of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will furnish you with more alternatives when promoting your web store. Certainly, using a private virtual web server or a dedicated web hosting server for hosting reseller objectives is much more costly than using a standard hosting reseller user account. That is the reason why, this option should be considered only in case the hosting reseller has sufficient knowledge and training necessary to manage a hosting server, otherwise it's recommended to either opt for a normal hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by, which demands less dedication from the hosting reseller.
