How does reseller hosting function?
What is the customer base of the reseller web site hosting solution retailers?
It comprises web page designers or design firms providing mainly web page design services. Small-sized Internet Service Providers, big-time SEO webmasters and different online opportunists are also part of the hosting reseller scene.
Popular reseller web hosting patterns
Now, the most widespread business type is the cPanel reseller web hositng service, where the reseller pre-pays for a chosen reseller hosting plan (with specific quotas of web space, traffic, hosted top-level domain names, etc. on a monthly basis (at wholesale prices). Then the reseller account is cut into mini shared web site hosting packages, which are subsequently sold to the customers at retail prices fixed by the reseller. The reseller's revenue is formed by the difference between the wholesale and the retail hosting prices.
cPanel's 3rd party billing transaction management software setup
The cPanel-based reseller hosting has to take care of the invoice transaction management platform provision (a merchant account integrated into a third party billing system is demanded) and the 24x7x365 customer and sales support provision. The reseller also plays the role of a connection between the customers and the domain name registrar where the domains are actually being registered, moved or renewed on behalf of the clients (a domain names reseller account working with the invoicing transaction management platform is demanded too).
No domain name, invoice transaction and trouble ticket management sections in cPanel?!?
While on the subject, cPanel does not have any domain registration, invoice transaction and trouble ticket management sections. These belong to the 3rd party invoice transaction management software system. Truly impressive. And trendy. A leading-edge twenty-first century invention: two customer login places (the cPanel web site hosting CP itself and the invoicing transaction/trouble ticket/domain administration software system). And that's merely the beginning...
Rare to find, yet better reseller webspace hosting options
On very sporadic occasions you might be fortunate to come across other quite successful cloud hosting reseller programs, such as the one devised by ResellersPanel. There aren't any monthly reseller charges or deposits. It's as simple as that: if a sale is accomplished, there is a fee, in all other cases - there is not. Looks like with ResellersPanel there aren't any economic dangers for the resellers. We believe that ResellersPanel's program is possibly way better than the presently quite widespread cPanel hosting reseller setup. Read on to see why.
ResellersPanel - the peril-free reseller web site hosting model
Above all, unlike the cPanel-based reseller website hosting retailers, ResellersPanel will not charge the reseller a single dime. Not till the reseller generates any new transactions or renewals. Which is very reasonable, in fact. This lowers the monetary risks to ground-zero degrees. With ResellersPanel's hosting reseller program, the reseller is not mixed up with monthly or annual down payments, donations, reseller charges or part payments whatsoever. While the popular cPanel reseller website hosting setup depends mainly on monthly or annual down payments and subscriptions, which suggests... much bigger financial risks. Unlike ResellersPanel's reseller web page hosting operating model, the cPanel reseller web hosting model is not interested in whether the reseller has generated any sales or not - the monthly or annual reseller taxes have to be paid out in a punctual manner, in other words have to be prepaid. Full stop.
North American, European and Aussie cloud hosting accounts
ResellersPanel is not simply a hazard-free reseller webspace hosting platform. ResellersPanel distributes ACTUAL CLOUD WEB PAGE HOSTING plans for reselling. Elsewhere, there is some partial evidence for the presence of a cloud web hosting environment. The cloud hosting accounts the resellers can custom create and market on behalf of their web hosting brands are available at 4 data center locations: in the United States, in the United Kingdom, in Sweden and in Australia! How many cPanel-based reseller webspace hosting vendors deliver multi-continent data center site possibilities? How many cPanel web hosting companies offer cloud hosting services to the resellers and to their clients?
Virtual web hosting server, semi-dedicated hosting server and dedicated server web hosting reseller solutions
How many reseller web hosting providers, other than ResellersPanel, enable their resellers to market VPS, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated servers at very attractive rates? Hepsia, the industry's best hosting Control Panel, is also added there, by default, at no supplementary or additional expense. Unmetered hosted domain names, Secure Shell and complete server root access are also added in the feature-rich server web hosting accounts. Plus, the resellers can also sell over 50 generic and country code top-level domain names and SSL certificates to their clientele.
