How does reseller web site hosting function?
What is the customer base of the reseller webspace hosting solution providers?
It comprises web page designers or website design companies dealing mostly with website design solutions. Small-sized Internet Service Providers, outstanding SEO webmasters and various web entrepreneurs are also part of the hosting reseller niche.
Popular reseller webspace hosting models
As of now, the most widely spread business model is the cPanel reseller web hositng service, where the reseller pays in advance for a preferred reseller web hosting plan (with certain quotas of data storage, bandwidth, hosted domain names, etc. on a monthly basis (at wholesale rates). Then the reseller account is chopped into miniature shared hosting packages, which are subsequently sold to the customers at retail rates specified by the reseller. The reseller's profit is formed by the difference between the wholesale and the retail hosting prices.
cPanel's third party billing software system
The cPanel-based reseller hosting has to assume responsibility for the billing transaction management platform supply (a merchant account integrated into a third party billing platform is mandatory) and the 24/7 customer and sales support system supply. The reseller also plays the role of a bond between the customers and the Top-Level Domain registrar where the TLDs are actually being registered, moved or renewed on behalf of the clients (a domain names reseller account functioning with the invoice transaction management system is wanted too).
No domain name, billing transaction and client support management user interfaces in cPanel?!?
By the way, cPanel does not offer any domain name registration, billing transaction and client support administration interfaces. These are part of the third party invoicing software system. Quite exciting. And modern. A leading-edge 21st century invention: 2 client login places (the cPanel web site hosting Control Panel itself and the billing/customer support/domain administration software platform). And this is merely for starters...
Rare, yet better reseller web site hosting alternatives
In extremely rare cases you might be lucky to come across other remarkably successful cloud hosting reseller platforms, such as the one forged by ResellersPanel. There aren't any monthly reseller charges or deposits. It's as plain as that: if a transaction is made, there is a fee, in all other occasions - there is not. Seems like with ResellersPanel there are no financial hazards for the resellers. Our opinion is that ResellersPanel's scheme is perhaps way better than the now quite well-known cPanel hosting reseller model. Read further to discover why.
ResellersPanel - the jeopardy-free reseller web page hosting program
In the first place, as opposed to the cPanel-based reseller web site hosting merchandisers, ResellersPanel will not tax the reseller a single cent. Not unless the reseller makes any new transactions or renewals. Which is quite reasonable, as a matter of fact. This curtails the monetary risks to ground-zero levels. With ResellersPanel's hosting reseller program, the reseller is not mixed up with monthly or annual down payments, contributions, reseller fees or deposits whatsoever. While the well-known cPanel-based reseller web hosting scheme depends exclusively on monthly or annual prepayments and deposits, which signifies... much bigger fiscal risks. Unlike ResellersPanel's reseller hosting modus operandi, the cPanel reseller web hosting scheme is not interested in whether the reseller has generated any deals or not - the monthly or annual reseller taxes have to be paid on time, i.e. must be paid up front. Period.
American, European and Aussie cloud web hosting plans
ResellersPanel is not solely a risk-free reseller web page hosting solution. ResellersPanel provides REAL CLUSTERED WEB HOSTING solutions for reselling. Elsewhere, there is some partial evidence for the existence of a cloud hosting platform. The cloud hosting accounts the resellers can custom create and sell under their site hosting brands are available at 4 datacenter locations: in the United States, in the United Kingdom, in Sweden and in Australia! How many cPanel reseller web hosting retailers provide multi-continent data center location opportunities? How many cPanel web hosting companies provide cloud hosting services to the resellers and to their clients?
Virtual web server, semi-dedicated web server hosting and dedicated hosting reseller services
How many reseller hosting providers, apart from ResellersPanel, permit their resellers to promote Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated servers at quite attractive prices? Hepsia, the industry-leading web hosting CP, is added there as well, by default, at no supplementary or added cost. Unmetered hosted domains, SSH and full server root privileges are also included in the function-rich server web hosting packages. What is more, the resellers can also sell over fifty generic and country code top-level domains and SSL certificates to their clients.
