What Indeed is Reseller Web Hosting?

A reseller web hosting service is a possibility for the average user to earn money on the Internet by selling the hosting server disk drive storage space furnished by a certain web hosting vendor. Most frequently, the hosting suppliers offer white label reseller web hosting services, meaning that the users resell the web hosting packages under their own brand. How it is all rendered realizable and what the separate kinds of reseller web hosting plans are, you will discover in this story.

How does reseller web hosting function and what are the separate reseller web hosting types?

The manner in which reseller web hosting works is determined by the approach of the web hosting vendor, which offers the service. The most widespread kind of reseller hosting account is the cPanel/WHM one. With it, you deal out the web server disk space, which your reseller account offers, among your clients using the Web Host Manager Control Panel. With it, you may set up separate hosting packages and cPanel web hosting user accounts for your customers. With such a setup, the reseller needs to take care of the invoicing and technical support provision. Still, this too is determined by the policy of the provider. A separate type of reseller web hosting program is the Free Reseller Program offered by With it, you define your own personal retail prices for the offered web hosting packages, and for every deal that you generate, the folks from will provide you with a commission, which is actually the difference between the retail and the wholesale prices. With this reseller web hosting program, provides customer support to the end customers, which may be quite convenient if you do not wish to be fully engrossed in the reseller web hosting business.

What sorts of web hosting services can be sold via a reseller web hosting account?

The normal reseller web hosting service only permits the resellers to offer shared accounts. That's simply because the majority of reseller accounts are essentially shared accounts, which offer more features. Just like with a shared hosting web server, the majority of web hosting service providers offering a cPanel/WHM reseller web hosting solution have lots of reseller web hosting accounts sharing the very same web hosting server. Because of that, the resellers are not furnished with root access to the server configuration files, which denotes that the sole web hosting service that they may provide are shared hosting accounts. This, however, relates solely to the cPanel/WHM-driven reseller web hosting solutions and once again, it is dependent on the approach that the web hosting service provider has adopted towards these services. If the reseller has a bigger allowance, he can offer diverse services such as VPS web hosting or dedicated web hosting on behalf of his very own private brand name and get more persons interested in the services that he has to offer. Certainly, it will mean that the reseller will need to cope with the client support provision, since no web hosting firm will wish to offer technical support to the end users of such a web hosting solution. Another way to provide more than just average shared web hosting packages is to sign up with the aforementioned Free Reseller Program, which has created. With it, the users are able to offer VPS web hosting, semi-dedicated web hosting and dedicated web hosting, along with shared packages, without having to purchase any of the web hosting solutions upfront. That's the simplest and safest way to sell web hosting plans online, because it requires no preliminary payments and you don't need to be technically skilled, since you won't become involved in providing technical and invoicing support. Depending on the web host's strategy, there might be other supplementary web hosting solutions, which the hosting reseller may provide, such as domain registrations, SSL certificates, domain privacy protection services, etc. For this reason, prior to signing up for anything, one should first check what exactly the reseller web hosting account of the given hosting supplier is offering.

"Which web hosting solutions provider should I pick?"

There is quite an easy answer to that question. When selecting a website hosting package, it's invariably preferable to opt for an experienced web hosting firm, which has been in business for a few years, and which distributes web hosting accounts around the world. Such web hosting companies can be easily spotted by the way in which they are distributing their web hosting plans. An experienced hosting plans provider will not merely offer well-balanced hosting and reseller web hosting services, but it will also provide features that are uniquely theirs and that separate them from all the other hosting firms. For example, has not only invented a unique reseller program where you don't need to pay in order to sell their solutions, but has also created its very own web hosting CP. The quality of the personnel that works for a given web hosting solutions provider is quite vital and has an enormous impact on the quality of the web hosting solutions that are being offered, while custom-built functionalities demonstrate that the hosting company has competent, experienced developers. The quality of the web hosting service matters when you're signing up for a reseller web hosting account. It's much easier to relocate one website than to transfer a few client accounts, if you ever consider it necessary to change the reseller web hosting service provider. That is the reason why, one should choose carefully prior to placing their confidence in a specific web hosting corporation.
