How does reseller site hosting work?
What is the customer base of the reseller web space hosting service firms?
It consists of web designers or web design enterprises providing chiefly web site design solutions. Small Internet Service Providers, big-time Search Engine Optimization web developers and various online entrepreneurs are also involved with the hosting reseller arena.
Widespread reseller web page hosting trends
At present, the most popular business model is the cPanel reseller web hositng solution, where the reseller pre-pays for a preferred reseller web site hosting package (with certain quotas of space, traffic, hosted domains, and so on on a monthly basis (at wholesale rates). Then the reseller package is sliced down into mini shared webspace hosting packages, which are later sold to the customers at retail prices set by the reseller. The reseller's profit is formed by the difference between the wholesale and the retail hosting prices.
cPanel's 3rd party billing software system
The cPanel-based reseller hosting must take care of the invoicing platform provision (a merchant account connected with a 3rd party billing transaction management system is compulsory) and the 24/7 customer and sales support system provision. The reseller also plays the role of a link between the customers and the top-level domain name registrar where the domain names are actually being registered, migrated or renewed on clients' behalf (a domain reseller account functioning with the billing platform is obligatory as well).
No domain, billing transaction and customer support administration tools in cPanel?!?
While on the subject, cPanel does not offer any domain registration, billing and client support management tools. The latter belong to the third party invoicing transaction management software system. Remarkably exciting. And modish. An advanced 21st century solution: 2 user login locations (the cPanel web space hosting CP itself and the billing/customer support/domain management tool). And that's simply for starters...
Rare, yet better reseller website hosting options
In extremely rare circumstances you might be lucky to stumble upon other remarkably lucrative cloud hosting reseller systems, such as the one provided by ResellersPanel. There aren't any monthly reseller charges or installments. It's as simple as that: if a deal is accomplished, there is a charge, in all other cases - there is not. Seems like with ResellersPanel there are no commercial risks for the resellers. Our opinion is that ResellersPanel's operating model is probably way better than the now very widespread cPanel hosting reseller setup. Read further to see why.
ResellersPanel - the hazard-free reseller website hosting program
To begin with, unlike the cPanel reseller site hosting vendors, ResellersPanel will not charge the reseller a single cent. Not unless the reseller generates any new sales or renewals. Which is quite logical, actually. This decreases the monetary risks to ground-zero degrees. With ResellersPanel's hosting reseller mode of operation, the reseller is not mixed up with monthly or annual down payments, contributions, reseller taxes or installments whatsoever. Whereas the popular cPanel-based reseller site hosting model relies only on monthly or annual down payments and subscriptions, which signifies... much bigger economic hazards. Unlike ResellersPanel's reseller web space hosting scheme, the cPanel reseller hosting scheme is not interested in whether the reseller has accomplished any transactions or not - the monthly or annual reseller subscriptions have to be paid up without delay, i.e. must be paid beforehand. Full stop.
American, European and Australian clustered hosting plans
ResellersPanel is not simply a jeopardy-free reseller web page hosting system. ResellersPanel offers REAL CLOUD WEBSITE HOSTING plans for reselling. Everywhere else, there is some partial evidence for the availability of a cloud hosting platform. The cloud hosting accounts the resellers can custom build and market under their website hosting brand names are available at 4 datacenter facility locations: in the United States, in the United Kingdom, in Sweden and in Australia! How many cPanel reseller site hosting corporations deliver multi-continent server farm facility location choices? How many cPanel web hosting companies provide cloud hosting services to the resellers and to their customers?
VPS server web hosting, semi-dedicated web server hosting and dedicated hosting reseller services
How many reseller web hosting retailers, apart from ResellersPanel, permit their resellers to promote VPS hosting, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated hosting at very competitive rates? Hepsia, the industry's best web hosting CP, is also added there, by default, at no extra or further fee. Unmetered hosted domains, SSH and full server root access are also added in the feature-rich web server plans. Moreover, the resellers can also offer over 50 generic and country code top-level domain names and digital certificates to their clients.
