How Does Reseller Web Hosting Work?

There are many means of generating cash on the Internet and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions furnished by a particular web hosting services provider. This presents immense possibilities for everybody who desires to gain extra profit. There are different sorts of reseller web hosting services, depending on the hosting reseller's level of responsibility and, of course, on the web hosting supplier that offers the web hosting service. Prior to looking into that, let's first examine

What is a reseller web hosting solution?

A reseller web hosting solution is a sort of hosting account, which allows the user to set up different sub-accounts that can be resold to different clients. This is usually carried out by giving the user access to a master reseller web hosting account, through which he can set up various web hosting accounts using the web hosting server disk drive storage space included in the reseller web hosting plan, for which he pays a certain price. This is a lot like the shared hosting service and exactly like it, with most reseller web hosting programs, lots of web hosting reseller accounts share a single server and are not provided with complete root-level access to the web server config files. Such reseller web hosting programs are normally not that expensive. However, they do impede the hosting resellers from promoting other types of hosting solutions beside shared web hosting packages.

Different varieties of reseller web hosting solutions

Aside from the abovementioned mode of reseller web hosting accounts, there are also a few different setups that work just as fine. However, they contrast with respect to the degrees of participation and the budget amount that each one of them necessitates. As already stated, the most popular method of selling hosting services offers you limited options and you risk forfeiting your money if things don't go well. Because of this, larger web hosting corporations such as offer alternative ways of reselling hosting plans without having to pay for anything beforehand, or to even deal with the provision of technical and billing support. With their hosting reseller program, the web hosting reseller subscribes free of cost and names his own retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being offered straight from his web store. Because invoicing transactions are handled by's team, the reseller does not need to buy the web hosting service upfront. He's just going to receive the difference between the retail and the wholesale price in the form of a commission. The hosting reseller also has the possibility to provide hosing solutions such as VPS services, semi-dedicated services and dedicated server. More or less, his job entails popularizing the web hosting service and providing support to the end clients and with web hosting suppliers that do not demand upfront taxes and take care of the billing and client support provision, the only responsibility left for the hosting reseller will be to popularize his personal brand's web store. Another option will be to set up separate user accounts on a VPS web server, or on a dedicated server. With most hosting providers, you may obtain those 2 web hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some different hosting Control Panel, pre-installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared hosting packages and have absolute control over both the clients and the hosting server itself. What is more, on a dedicated hosting web server, you may set up various VPS server web hosting accounts and resell them to your clients. A single dedicated server may host 1000's of private virtual server accounts, based on the server's specs. This will allow you to offer a bigger variety of hosting solutions to your clients, which will furnish you with more opportunities when popularizing your online store. Sure enough, using a VPS server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller web hosting goals is much more expensive than having a standard reseller web hosting user account. So, this alternative should be contemplated only if the web hosting reseller has sufficient understanding and practice required to manage a server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a standard reseller web hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by, which requests less commitment from the hosting reseller.
