Reseller Hosting Unmasked

There are a lot of ways of generating revenue on the web and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions supplied by a given hosting firm. This provides immense options for everyone who wants to make extra profit. There are different varieties of reseller hosting solutions, based on the reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the provider that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first analyze

What is a reseller hosting service?

A reseller hosting solution is a sort of web hosting user account, which allows the user to create separate subaccounts that can be sold to different clients. This is chiefly accomplished by giving the reseller access to a main reseller hosting account, through which he can create various web hosting accounts with the web space offered by the reseller hosting plan, for which he pays a given price. This is much like the shared hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of reseller hosting programs, multiple reseller hosting accounts share the very same web hosting server and are not provided with full server root access to the web server config files. Such web hosting reseller programs are generally not that costly. However, they do hamper the hosting resellers from providing other types of web hosting services apart from shared hosting plans.

Various sorts of reseller hosting services

Aside from the abovementioned mode of reseller hosting plans, there are also a few different schemes that work just as fine. However, they contrast with respect to the degrees of involvement and the amount of money that each one of them presupposes. As mentioned, the most common way of reselling hosting services gives you restricted opportunities and you risk losing your funds if things don't go well. For that reason, bigger web hosting corporations such as provide different methods of reselling hosting plans without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even be involved in the provision of client and invoicing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the hosting reseller signs up free of charge and determines his very own retail prices for the web hosting plans, which are being offered directly from his web store. Since invoicing transactions are taken care of by's team, the user does not need to buy the web hosting service in advance. He's only going to get the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the option to supply web hosting services such as VPS packages, semi-dedicated packages and dedicated package. More or less, his duty entails promoting the service and offering support to the end clients and with web hosting service providers that do not require preliminary payments and tackle the invoicing and customer support provision, the sole assignment left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his private brand's online storefront. Another option will be to set up different accounts on a VPS, or on a dedicated hosting web server. With the majority of hosting corporations, you may obtain those 2 hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to create various shared web hosting accounts and exercise total authority over both the users and the server itself. What is more, on a dedicated server, you may set up separate VPS accounts and offer them to your customers. One dedicated hosting server may accommodate 1000's of private virtual server web hosting accounts, depending on the web server's capacity. This will permit you to sell a bigger array of web hosting services to your clients, which will give you more possibilities when advertising your online store. Sure enough, using a VPS web server or a dedicated hosting server for reseller hosting purposes is much more costly than using a regular reseller hosting user account. Because of this reason, this possibility should be examined only in case the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and experience needed to manage a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either opt for a standard reseller hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program courtesy of, which demands less involvement from the web hosting reseller.
