How does reseller web hosting function?
What is the customer base of the reseller web space hosting service distributors?
It is comprised of website designers or web design enterprises providing mainly design services. Small-sized Internet Service Providers, very influential Search Engine Optimization webmasters and different online go-getters are also part of the hosting reseller scene.
Widespread reseller web page hosting patterns
At the moment, the most well-known marketing type is the cPanel reseller web hositng service, where the reseller pays in advance for a chosen reseller hosting plan (with certain quotas of storage space, traffic, hosted Top-Level Domains, and so on on a monthly basis (at wholesale prices). Then the reseller account is chopped into tiny shared hosting plans, which are later sold to the customers at retail prices selected by the reseller. The reseller's revenue is calculated by subtracting the wholesale hosting price from the retail hosting price.
cPanel's 3rd party invoicing transaction management software platform
The cPanel-based reseller hosting has to assume responsibility for the invoicing platform supply (a merchant account connected with a third party invoice transaction management platform is wanted) and the round-the-clock client and sales support provision. The reseller also plays the role of a connection between the customers and the domain registrar where the TLDs are in fact being registered, transferred or renewed on clients' behalf (a domain reseller account working with the invoicing system is mandatory as well).
No domain name, billing transaction and trouble ticket management user interfaces in cPanel?!?
While on the subject, cPanel does not include any domain registration, invoicing and customer support administration GUIs. These belong to the third party billing software platform. Extremely exciting. And contemporary. A leading-edge twenty-first century solution: two user login places (the cPanel web site hosting CP itself and the invoice/trouble ticket/domain management software platform). And that's just for starters...
Rare, yet better reseller site hosting options
In very rare cases you might be fortunate to come across other highly successful cloud hosting reseller setups, like the one invented by ResellersPanel. There aren't any monthly reseller fees or deposits. It's as simple as that: if a transaction is made, there is a fee, in all other cases - there is not. Seems like with ResellersPanel there are no monetary dangers for the resellers. Our opinion is that ResellersPanel's program is probably way better than the currently very widespread cPanel hosting reseller scheme. Read further to find out why.
ResellersPanel - the danger-free reseller site hosting model
First and foremost, unlike the cPanel-based reseller hosting suppliers, ResellersPanel will not charge the reseller a single dime. Not unless the reseller generates any new deals or renewals. Which is quite reasonable, in fact. This lowers the monetary risk to ground-zero levels. With ResellersPanel's hosting reseller program, the reseller is not involved with monthly or annual down payments, subscriptions, reseller taxes or deposits whatsoever. While the well-known cPanel-based reseller webspace hosting model relies mainly on monthly or annual down payments and taxes, which suggests... much bigger financial risks. In contrast with ResellersPanel's reseller webspace hosting mode of operation, the cPanel reseller web hosting model is not interested in whether the reseller has accomplished any transactions or not - the monthly or annual reseller fees must be paid up on time, in other words must be prepaid. Period.
American, European and Aussie cloud web space hosting packages
ResellersPanel is not only a hazard-free reseller web space hosting system. ResellersPanel distributes REAL CLUSTERED WEBSPACE HOSTING plans for reselling. Elsewhere, there is some limited evidence for the availability of a cloud web hosting system. The cloud hosting accounts the resellers can custom create and sell on behalf of their web hosting trademarks are available at four datacenter locations: in the United States, in the United Kingdom, in Sweden and in Australia! How many cPanel-based reseller website hosting providers provide multi-continent server farm location choices? How many cPanel web hosting companies offer cloud hosting services to the resellers and to their clients?
VPS server hosting, semi-dedicated web hosting server and dedicated hosting server reseller plans
How many reseller site hosting companies, apart from ResellersPanel, enable their resellers to promote Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated hosting at very competitive rates? Hepsia, the industry's best hosting CP, is also included there, by default, at no supplementary or additional charge. Unmetered hosted domain names, Secure Shell and full server root access are also included in the functionality-rich server web hosting packages. Furthermore, the resellers can also sell more than 50 generic and country code top-level domains and SSL certificates to their clients.
