How does reseller hosting function?
What is the customer base of the reseller webspace hosting service suppliers?
It includes designers or web design companies dealing mainly with design solutions. Small-sized Internet Service Providers, enterprising Search Engine Optimization webmasters and various online entrepreneurs are also involved with the hosting reseller scene.
Widely spread reseller website hosting models
At the moment, the most well-known business model is the cPanel reseller web hositng service, where the reseller pays in advance for a preferred reseller web site hosting plan (with fixed amounts of disk space, web traffic, hosted top-level domain names, and so on on a monthly basis (at wholesale rates). Then the reseller plan is split into miniature shared web hosting plans, which are subsequently sold to the customers at retail prices 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 invoicing transaction management software system
The cPanel-based reseller hosting must take care of the invoice transaction management system provision (a merchant account connected with a 3rd party invoicing platform is compulsory) and the round-the-clock client and sales support platform provision. The reseller also plays the role of a bridge between the customers and the Top-Level Domain registrar where the Top-Level Domains are actually being registered, migrated or renewed on clients' behalf (a domain reseller account working with the invoice transaction management system is mandatory too).
No domain name, invoice transaction and client support administration user interfaces in cPanel?!?
By the way, cPanel does not supply any domain registration, billing transaction and customer support administration sections. The latter are included in the 3rd party billing software. Extremely exciting. And modern. An innovative twenty-first century invention: two customer login places (the cPanel web hosting Control Panel itself and the billing transaction/ticket support/domain name management software platform). And this is simply the beginning...
Rare to find, yet better reseller webspace hosting options
On very sparse occasions you might be fortunate to come across other quite rewarding cloud reseller hosting systems, like the one contrived by ResellersPanel. There are no monthly reseller fees or down payments. It's as plain as that: if a sale is made, there is a fee, in all other cases - there isn't. Sounds like with ResellersPanel there aren't any financial perils for the resellers. Our opinion is that ResellersPanel's system is probably way better than the presently very popular cPanel hosting reseller model. Read on to see why.
ResellersPanel - the risk-free reseller website hosting system
In the first place, unlike the cPanel reseller web site hosting suppliers, ResellersPanel will not charge the reseller one single dime. Not until the reseller accomplishes any new sales or renewals. Which is quite reasonable, as a matter of fact. This reduces the financial risks to ground-zero degrees. With ResellersPanel's reseller hosting system, the reseller is not involved with monthly or annual down payments, donations, reseller charges or deposits in any way. While the well-known cPanel-based reseller hosting setup is based mostly on monthly or annual down payments and subscriptions, which suggests... much bigger financial risks. Unlike ResellersPanel's reseller web space hosting mode of operating, the cPanel reseller web hosting model is not interested in whether the reseller has made any bargains or not - the monthly or annual reseller charges have to be paid punctually, in other words must be paid in advance. Period.
US, European and Australian cloud web space hosting accounts
ResellersPanel is not simply a peril-free reseller website hosting solution. ResellersPanel offers GENUINE CLOUD WEB PAGE HOSTING packages for reselling. Elsewhere, there is some limited evidence for the existence of a cloud hosting platform. The cloud hosting packages the resellers can custom create and offer on behalf of their site hosting trademarks 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 web hosting merchants supply multi-continent data center location alternatives? How many cPanel web hosting companies offer cloud hosting services to the resellers and to their clientele?
Virtual Private Server, semi-dedicated server web hosting and dedicated server hosting reseller accounts
How many reseller hosting merchants, besides ResellersPanel, permit their resellers to offer VPS, semi-dedicated hosting and dedicated servers at quite competitive rates? Hepsia, the industry-leading web hosting Control Panel, is also added there, by default, at no extra or further expense. Unlimited hosted domains, Secure Shell and full root-level access are also incorporated in the functionality-rich web server packages. What is more, the resellers can also provide more than 50 generic and country code top-level domains and SSL certificates to their clients.
