How does reseller hosting operate?
What is the customer base of the reseller web site hosting solution merchandisers?
It is comprised of site designers or website design corporations dealing chiefly with website design solutions. Small ISPs, enterprising Search Engine Optimization web architects and various Internet opportunists are also involved with the hosting reseller scene.
Popular reseller site hosting patterns
Today, the most popular business model is the cPanel reseller web hositng solution, where the reseller pays in advance for a given reseller hosting account (with fixed quotas of disk storage, web traffic, hosted Top-Level Domains, etc. on a monthly basis (at wholesale rates). Then the reseller account is chopped into tiny shared site hosting plans, which are subsequently sold to the customers at retail rates set by the reseller. The reseller's revenue is formed by the difference between the wholesale and the retail hosting prices.
cPanel's third party billing software setup
The cPanel-based reseller hosting has to take care of the invoicing transaction management platform provision (a merchant account integrated into a third party billing transaction management platform is necessary) and the 24x7 technical and sales support provision. The reseller also plays the role of a link between the customers and the domain registrar where the Top-Level Domains are actually being registered, transferred or renewed on clients' behalf (a domain names reseller account functioning with the billing transaction management system is necessary as well).
No domain, invoice transaction and client support administration user interfaces in cPanel?!?
While on the subject, cPanel does not supply any domain name registration, invoice transaction and client support management interfaces. These are part of the 3rd party billing software. Quite impressive. And trendy. An avant-garde 21st century invention: 2 user login places (the cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel itself and the billing/ticket support/domain name management software system). And this is merely for starters...
Rare to find, yet better reseller site hosting alternatives
In extremely rare circumstances you might be lucky to come across other truly rewarding cloud reseller hosting schemes, such as the one developed by ResellersPanel. There are no monthly reseller prepayments or deposits. It's as simple as that: if a purchase is made, there is a fee, in all other cases - there isn't. Sounds like with ResellersPanel there aren't any economic perils for the resellers. We think that ResellersPanel's mode of operation is probably way better than the currently quite well-known cPanel hosting reseller setup. Read further to understand why.
ResellersPanel - the risk-free reseller website hosting solution
First of all, unlike the cPanel-based reseller web site hosting distributors, ResellersPanel will not charge the reseller one single cent. Not unless the reseller makes any new deals or renewals. Which is quite logical, in fact. This lowers the financial risks to ground-zero degrees. With ResellersPanel's hosting reseller modus operandi, the reseller is not mixed up with monthly or annual down payments, subscriptions, reseller charges or deposits in any way. Whereas the popular cPanel-based reseller hosting model depends only on monthly or annual down payments and subscriptions, which signifies... much higher monetary risks. In contrast with ResellersPanel's reseller website hosting mode of operating, the cPanel reseller hosting setup is not interested in whether the reseller has accomplished any bargains or not - the monthly or annual reseller taxes have to be paid without delay, in other words have to be prepaid. Period.
American, European and Aussie clustered web space hosting solutions
ResellersPanel is not solely a jeopardy-free reseller site hosting program. ResellersPanel supplies ACTUAL CLUSTERED WEBSITE HOSTING packages for reselling. Everywhere else, there is some limited evidence for the presence of a cloud hosting environment. The cloud hosting accounts the resellers can custom create and trade on behalf of their web space hosting brands are available at four server farm sites: in the United States, in the United Kingdom, in Sweden and in Australia! How many cPanel-based reseller site hosting providers present multi-continent datacenter site options? How many cPanel web hosting companies provide cloud hosting services to the resellers and to their clientele?
Virtual Private Server, semi-dedicated web hosting and dedicated hosting reseller accounts
How many reseller website hosting merchants, apart from ResellersPanel, allow their resellers to offer virtual servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated servers at quite competitive rates? Hepsia, the industry's best hosting Control Panel, is added there as well, by default, at no extra or added price. Unlimited hosted domains, Secure Shell and full root access are also part of the function-rich hosting server packages. In addition, the resellers can also sell over 50 generic and country code top-level domain names and SSL certificates to their customers.
