What is Reseller Web Hosting?
What is the customer base of the reseller web page hosting service suppliers?
It comprises web designers or web page design establishments dealing mostly with website design services. Small-sized Internet Service Providers, big-time SEO webmasters and different Internet entrepreneurs are also part of the web hosting reseller niche.
Famous reseller web hosting models
As of this moment, the most well-known business model is the cPanel web hosting reseller solution, where the reseller pays in advance for a preferred reseller web space hosting plan (with certain quotas of data storage, web traffic, hosted top-level domain names, etc. on a monthly basis (at wholesale rates). Then the reseller package is split into mini shared web space hosting packages, which are subsequently sold to the clients at retail prices specified 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 transaction management software setup
The cPanel-based hosting reseller has to assume responsibility for the invoicing transaction management platform provision (a merchant account integrated into a third party billing transaction management system is demanded) and the 24/7/365 client and sales support provision. The reseller also plays the role of a connection between the customers and the top-level domain name registrar where the Top-Level Domains are actually being registered, transferred or renewed on clients' behalf (a domain names reseller account functioning with the invoice transaction management platform is wanted too).
No domain name, invoice transaction and customer support administration interfaces in cPanel?!?
While on the subject, cPanel does not include any domain name registration, billing and trouble ticket management interfaces. Those are part of the 3rd party billing management software platform. Quite inspiring. And ingenious. An avant-garde 21st century solution: 2 customer login places (the cPanel webspace hosting Control Panel itself and the invoicing/technical support/domain administration software). And this is merely for starters...
Rare to find, yet better reseller hosting options
On very sparse occasions you might be fortunate to find other extremely rewarding cloud hosting reseller programs, such as the one offered by Resellers Panel. There are no monthly reseller fees or deposits. It's as simple as that: if a deal is made, there is a charge, in all other cases - there is not. Looks like with Resellers Panel there are no monetary risks for the resellers. Our opinion is that Resellers Panel's mode of operating is possibly way better than the now quite widespread cPanel hosting reseller system. Read further to see why.
Resellers Panel - the hazard-free reseller web space hosting program
In the first place, unlike the cPanel reseller web space hosting corporations, Resellers Panel will not charge the reseller one single cent. Not until the reseller makes any new bargains or renewals. Which is quite reasonable, actually. This reduces the fiscal risk to ground-zero degrees. With Resellers Panel's reseller web hosting setup, the reseller is not involved with monthly or annual down payments, donations, reseller charges or part payments in any way. While the famous cPanel reseller web page hosting model is based largely on monthly or annual down payments and fees, which means... much bigger commercial hazards. In contrast with Resellers Panel's reseller website hosting model, the cPanel reseller 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 up in a timely manner, i.e. must be prepaid. Full stop.
