What Exactly is Reseller Hosting?

ResellersPanel offers 2 separate reseller hosting programs - the Free Web Hosting Reseller Program and the more advanced cPanel Web Hosting Reseller Program, so you can elect which is the most suitable reseller hosting program for you.

Basic skills v. practical expertise

The Free Reseller Hosting Program is great if you have just basic computer literacy. It is based on an in-house built reseller hosting platform. You won't be able to encounter it anywhere else on the Internet. The cPanel Reseller Hosting Program, on the other hand, is for expert hosting resellers.

No reseller hosting charges vs monthly charges

With ResellersPanel.com, you do not pay any startup fees as a free hosting reseller. You won't be charged a single cent in order to sell ResellersPanel's web hosting packages. You won't be charged a dime in case you do not close any deals either. As a cPanel reseller, you will be asked to pay a monthly fee. Even so, you only pay for the web hosting packages that you will be reselling.

A one-stop reseller hosting solution v. different management user interfaces

The free reseller does not need to possess programming and web site administration expertise. Using ResellersPanel's intuitive point & click Reseller Control Panel, you can quickly create your e-store. Using the charge-free turn-key reseller web hosting store templates, you can easily design your reseller web hosting store. You can create the plans that you want to resell to your clients and set prices on them with a few mouse clicks. You can resell shared web hosting, VPS and dedicated servers.

The cPanel Reseller Web Hosting Program offers cPanel-based packages with different characteristics and resource allowances. The web hosting packages and the end clients' web sites are managed via different tools.

White-label reseller hosting program tools vs custom branding possibilities

The free web hosting resellers are given a set of white-label options, which will enhance their anonymity. You can create your very own brand name, which will be exhibited on your reseller hosting store, inside your clients' web hosting Control Panel tools and on all documents connected with your web shop. You can also register unique domain names for your online shop at a very inexpensive price, if you are more serious about reselling and want to boost your profits. Picking one of the Private DNS Cluster packages can strengthen your brand popularity among your existing and potential customers.

The cPanel hosting resellers will have to handle these features themselves, but that allows them to more accurately target their potential markets and customers.

Guaranteed client support versus self-support opportunities

With the Free Reseller Hosting Program, ResellersPanel takes care of the client support provision. The seasoned cPanel web hosting resellers will have to take care of the client support provision themselves. The free web hosting resellers will have full command over their online reseller hosting stores and greater freedom in creating and promoting their packages.

The cPanel hosting resellers can widen their reseller hosting business base by upgrading to a more powerful cPanel hosting reseller package, giving them a greater amount of resources.

Resell pre-configured hosting plans or divide the resources as you see fit

The free web hosting reseller resells the company's wholesale-priced plans or their own custom hosting plans, while ResellersPanel carries out all payment processing and transaction authentication duties and offers 24-7-365 technical support to the web hosting resellers and to their customers. The resellers receive the difference between their retail price and the company's wholesale price.

The cPanel web hosting reseller buys the company's pre-configured packages in advance and then exercises complete authority over the way in which the resources are divided and over the prices of the web hosting plans. So, the cPanel hosting reseller enjoys a greater income potential.

A free web hosting reseller or a cPanel web hosting reseller?

So, if you have basic PC skills, the Free Reseller Hosting Program gives you everything you require to launch your reseller web hosting business without any monetary risk. The Free Reseller Web Hosting Program also offers options for trained hosting resellers. If you prefer the traditional modes of reselling web hosting services and have the necessary technical and marketing experience - then the cPanel Hosting Reseller Program is more appropriate for you.
