Reseller Web Hosting Revealed

There are lots of ways of making cash on the Internet and one of them is to resell the shared hosting solutions offered by a specific hosting supplier. This offers endless options for everybody who desires to make more revenue. There are several varieties of reseller web hosting services, depending on the web hosting reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the host that offers the service. Prior to going into that, let's first analyze

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A reseller web hosting service is a kind of hosting user account, which enables the reseller to set up various sub-accounts that can be sold to different customers. This is normally achieved by supplying the user with access to a master reseller web hosting account, through which he can create separate web hosting accounts availing of the web hosting storage space included in the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a certain tax. This is much similar to the shared web hosting service and exactly like it, with the majority of reseller web hosting programs, lots of reseller accounts share the very same web hosting server and do not obtain full root access to the web server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are generally not that high-priced. Yet, they do prevent the web hosting resellers from supplying other types of hosting solutions beside shared web hosting plans.

Various forms of reseller web hosting solutions

Aside from the abovementioned method of reseller web hosting plans, there are also a few other setups that work just as good. Yet, they vary with respect to the levels of involvement and the amount of resources that each of them entails. As already mentioned, the most common way of reselling web hosting services gives you limited opportunities and you risk forfeiting your money if things don't work out. Due to this reason, bigger hosting corporations such as offer different methods of selling hosting packages without having to purchase anything in advance, or to even cope with the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their reseller hosting program, the reseller registers for free and determines his own personal retail prices for the solutions, which are being offered straight from his online storefront. Since invoicing transactions are handled by's staff, the customer does not need to buy the service in advance. He's only going to get the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The reseller also has the opportunity to offer web hosting solutions such as virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated server. More or less, his duty comes down to advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with hosting companies that do not require upfront charges and tackle the invoicing and technical support provision, the sole responsibility left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another alternative will be to set up different accounts on a VPS web hosting server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most hosting suppliers, you may obtain those 2 hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to set up various shared web hosting accounts and have full authority over both the users and the server itself. What is more, on a dedicated server, you may set up separate Virtual Private Server hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. A single dedicated web server may shelter thousands of VPS web server accounts, depending on the server's specs. This will permit you to offer a greater assortment of hosting services to your customers, which will furnish you with more options when popularizing your web storefront. Surely, utilizing a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller web hosting objectives is much more expensive than having an ordinary reseller web hosting user account. Due to this reason, this opportunity should be contemplated only in case the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and experience demanded to administer a hosting server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a standard reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program provided by, which requires less dedication from the reseller.
