Web Hosting Reseller Disclosed

There are a lot of ways of generating revenue on the Internet and one of them is to resell the hosting services provided by a given web hosting corporation. This presents limitless possibilities for everyone who desires to make additional revenue. There are several kinds of web hosting reseller services, based on the reseller's degree of commitment and, of course, on the hosting distributor that provides the hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let us first analyze

What is a web hosting reseller solution?

A web hosting reseller solution is a sort of hosting user account, which allows the reseller to create various subaccounts that can be offered to various customers. This is typically achieved by giving the reseller access to a master web hosting reseller account, through which he can set up different web hosting accounts with the hard drive storage space included in the web hosting reseller package, for which he pays a given price. This is much similar to the shared web hosting solution and just like it, with the majority of web hosting reseller programs, a lot of reseller web hosting accounts share one single hosting server and are not bestowed with full root-level access to the web server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are generally not that costly. Still, they do deter the hosting resellers from furnishing other kinds of web hosting services apart from shared hosting packages.

Different varieties of web hosting reseller services

Beside the already mentioned way of web hosting reseller packages, there are also several different ways that work just as good. Still, they contrast with respect to the degrees of involvement and the amount of resources that each one of them requires. As already stated, the most popular mode of selling web hosting solutions offers you restricted alternatives and you risk losing your funds if things go wrong. That is why, larger service providers like provide alternative methods of selling hosting plans without having to purchase anything beforehand, or to even become involved in the provision of technical and billing support. With their hosting reseller program, the reseller signs up for free and selects his very own retail prices for the hosting solutions, which are being offered straight from his online storefront. Because invoicing transactions are handled by's staff, the reseller does not have to purchase the hosting service upfront. He's just going to receive the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price as a commission. The hosting reseller also has the opportunity to deliver web hosting solutions such as VPS packages, semi-dedicated packages and dedicated package. More or less, his job involves promoting the hosting service and offering support to the end customers and with hosts that do not demand preliminary payments and take care of the billing and client support provision, the sole duty left for the web hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another option will be to create separate accounts on a Virtual Private Server, or on a dedicated server. With the majority of web hosting vendors, you may get those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or another web hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will permit you to set up different shared web hosting accounts and have absolute control over both the customers and the server itself. Additionally, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create various virtual private web server accounts and resell them to your customers. One single dedicated web hosting server may shelter 1000's of VPS web server accounts, based on the server's configuration. This will permit you to offer a more extensive array of web hosting services to your clients, which will furnish you with more possibilities when popularizing your online storefront. Certainly, using a virtual private web server or a dedicated web server for web hosting reseller aims is much more costly than utilizing a standard web hosting reseller user account. Because of this, this opportunity should be considered only if the reseller has sufficient ability and practice needed to administer a server, otherwise it's recommended to either opt for a regular web hosting reseller program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program offered by, which requests less commitment from the web hosting reseller.
