How Reseller Hosting Functions

There are many ways of generating money online and one of them is to resell the hosting solutions offered by a particular hosting supplier. This offers immense options for everybody who wants to generate more cash. There are several types of reseller hosting services, depending on the reseller's degree of responsibility and, of course, on the provider that offers the web hosting service. Prior to going into that, let's first check out

What is a reseller hosting service?

A reseller hosting service is a kind of web hosting account, which permits the reseller to set up different sub-accounts that can be sold to different clients. This is commonly accomplished by providing the reseller with access to a main reseller hosting account, via which he can create different hosting accounts utilizing the web hosting server hard drive storage space provided by the reseller 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 hosting programs, a lot of reseller accounts share a single hosting server and do not have full server root access to the server config files. Such hosting reseller programs are normally not that expensive. Still, they do bar the web hosting resellers from providing other sorts of hosting solutions apart from shared packages.

Different sorts of reseller hosting services

Beside the already mentioned manner of reseller hosting plans, there are also a few different schemes that work just as good. Yet, they vary in terms of the degrees of participation and the amount of cash that each of them involves. As mentioned above, the most common mode of reselling web hosting services offers you limited possibilities and you risk forfeiting your investment if things don't work out. Because of this reason, larger providers such as offer different modes of reselling web hosting accounts without having to purchase anything upfront, or to even be involved in the provision of technical and invoicing support. With their web hosting reseller program, the reseller registers free of charge and chooses his own retail prices for the hosting packages, which are being offered straight from his online store. Since invoicing transactions are tackled by's team, the customer does not need to pay for the hosting service beforehand. He's just 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 hosing solutions such as VPS plans, semi-dedicated plans and dedicated server. More or less, his role involves advertising the web hosting service and offering support to the end users and with hosting vendors that do not demand upfront deposits and cope with the invoicing and technical support provision, the only assignment left for the hosting reseller will be to advertise his personal brand's web storefront. Another possibility will be to set up separate user accounts on a VPS web server, or on a dedicated web hosting server. With most hosting suppliers, you may receive those two hosting solutions with a cPanel, DirectAdmin, or some other hosting CP, already installed on them. That will enable you to create different shared hosting accounts and exercise total authority over both the users and the hosting server itself. Additionally, on a dedicated web hosting server, you may create different VPS web hosting server accounts and resell them to your clients. One single dedicated web server may stash thousands of virtual server accounts, depending on the web server's specs. This will allow you to deliver a more extensive array of web hosting services to your clients, which will give you more alternatives when promoting your online storefront. Certainly, using a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server for reseller hosting purposes is much more costly than utilizing a normal reseller hosting account. Thus, this possibility should be contemplated only if the hosting reseller has sufficient ability and experience required to administer a web server, otherwise it's advisable to either sign up for a normal reseller hosting program, or for the abovementioned Free Reseller Program provided by, which requires less involvement from the reseller.
