Different varieties of web hosting reseller services

Apart from the abovementioned manner of web hosting reseller accounts, there are also several other ways that work just as good. Yet, they vary with respect to the degrees of participation and the amount of cash that each one of them entails. As mentioned, the most popular method of reselling hosting services gives you restricted possibilities and you risk forfeiting your capital if things go wrong. For this reason, larger web hosting corporations such as ResellersPanel.com provide different ways of selling hosting plans without the need to pay for anything beforehand, or to even be responsible for the provision of customer and invoicing support. With their reseller hosting program, the hosting reseller signs up free of charge and puts his own personal retail prices for the solutions, which are being offered directly from his online storefront. Since invoicing transactions are handled by ResellersPanel.com's staff, the user does not need to pay for the hosting service in advance. He's just going to obtain the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the chance to resell web hosting services like VPS hosting plans, semi-dedicated hosting plans and dedicated hosting. More or less, his role entails promoting the service and providing support to the end users and with web hosting firms that do not request upfront deposits and take care of the billing and customer support provision, the sole responsibility left for the reseller will be to promote his private brand's web storefront. Another option will be to create separate user accounts on a VPS web server, or on a dedicated web server. With most hosting vendors, you may receive those 2 web hosting services with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other web hosting CP, already installed on them. That will allow you to create various shared web hosting accounts and exert complete authority over both the clients and the web hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create different Virtual Private Server web hosting accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated hosting web server may store thousands of VPS server accounts, based on the web server's specifications. This will allow you to provide a more extensive array of hosting services to your clients, which will present you with more opportunities when advertising your online storefront. Sure enough, utilizing a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated server for web hosting reseller purposes is much more expensive than utilizing a normal web hosting reseller account. Thus, this alternative should be contemplated only if the hosting reseller has enough knowledge and practice needed to administer a server, otherwise it's recommended to either register for an average web hosting reseller program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by ResellersPanel.com, which requests less participation from the reseller.
