Description of Reseller Web Hosting

There are plenty of ways of earning revenue on the World Wide Web and one of them is to sell the shared hosting services furnished by a specific hosting supplier. This provides immeasurable opportunities for everybody who wants to generate extra cash. There are different sorts of reseller web hosting solutions, depending on the reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the service provider that provides the web hosting service. Before looking into that, let's first explore

What is a reseller web hosting service?

A reseller web hosting solution is a sort of hosting account, which allows the reseller to create various subaccounts that can be resold to various clients. This is chiefly carried out by supplying the user with access to a main reseller web hosting account, via which he can set up various web hosting accounts with the server disk drive storage space offered by the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a given tax. This is much like the shared web hosting service and precisely like it, with most reseller web hosting programs, numerous reseller web hosting accounts share one single hosting server and do not have root-level access to the server configuration files. Such web hosting reseller programs are usually not that expensive. However, they do deter the hosting resellers from promoting other sorts of hosting solutions beside shared hosting packages.

Various sorts of reseller web hosting solutions

Aside from the aforementioned manner of reseller web hosting plans, there are also a few other schemes that work just as good. Still, they differ in terms of the degrees of involvement and the amount of funds that each of them necessitates. As mentioned, the most popular way of reselling hosting services gives you restricted options and you risk forfeiting your cash if things don't work out. Due to this reason, bigger hosting distributors such as provide different modes of selling hosting plans without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even cope with the provision of client and billing support. With their reseller web hosting program, the reseller registers free of cost and specifies his own personal retail prices for the web hosting solutions, which are being sold straight from his online store. Because billing transactions are handled by's staff, the user does not have to buy the hosting service in advance. He's simply going to obtain the difference between the retail and the wholesale price as a commission. The web hosting reseller also has the chance to distribute web hosting solutions such as VPS hosting, semi-dedicated server hosting and dedicated server. More or less, his job involves advertising the web hosting service and providing support to the end users and with web hosting companies that do not request preliminary charges and cope with the billing and customer support provision, the only assignment left for the reseller will be to popularize his private brand's web store. Another possibility will be to set up different user accounts on a virtual private web hosting server, or on a dedicated server. With most hosting distributors, you may receive those two web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting CP, pre-installed on them. That will allow you to set up different shared web hosting packages and exert absolute control over both the users and the web hosting server itself. Moreover, on a dedicated web server, you may set up various VPS web server accounts and resell them to your customers. One dedicated server may host thousands of VPS hosting accounts, depending on the web server's architecture. This will permit you to deliver a larger array of web hosting solutions to your customers, which will provide you with more alternatives when popularizing your web store. Of course, utilizing a VPS web server or a dedicated web server for reseller web hosting goals is much more expensive than having a conventional reseller web hosting account. That is why, this possibility should be considered only on condition that the reseller has sufficient ability and practice required to manage a web hosting server, otherwise it's recommendable to either sign up for an average reseller web hosting program, or for the already mentioned Free Reseller Program offered by, which requests less dedication from the reseller.
