How does reseller site hosting function?
What is the client base of the reseller web site hosting service distributors?
It is comprised of designers or web design enterprises offering mostly web design solutions. Small-scale Internet Service Providers, enterprising Search Engine Optimization web architects and various online entrepreneurs are also involved with the hosting reseller picture.
Famous reseller web space hosting models
As of this moment, the most widespread business type is the cPanel reseller web hositng solution, where the reseller pre-pays for a given reseller web site hosting package (with specific quotas of disk space, web traffic, hosted Top-Level Domains, and so on on a monthly basis (at wholesale rates). Then the reseller plan is split into tiny shared site hosting plans, which are subsequently sold to the clients at retail rates selected by the reseller. The reseller's profit is calculated by subtracting the wholesale hosting price from the retail hosting price.
cPanel's 3rd party billing software platform
The cPanel-based reseller hosting must assume responsibility for the billing transaction management system provision (a merchant account integrated into a 3rd party billing transaction management platform is required) and the 24/7/365 customer and sales support platform provision. The reseller also plays the role of a bridge between the customers and the TLD registrar where the domains are actually being registered, transferred or renewed on behalf of the clients (a domains reseller account functioning with the billing platform is wanted as well).
No domain, billing transaction and trouble ticket administration GUIs in cPanel?!?
While on the subject, cPanel does not offer any domain registration, billing and client support management tools. The latter are part of the third party invoicing software system. Highly impressive. And creative. An innovative 21st century solution: two customer login places (the cPanel web page hosting CP itself and the invoicing/client support/domain name administration software system). And that's simply for starters...
Rare, yet better reseller hosting options
In extremely rare circumstances you might be fortunate to stumble upon other quite successful cloud reseller hosting platforms, like the one offered by ResellersPanel. There aren't any monthly reseller prepayments or installments. 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 aren't any monetary perils for the resellers. We think that ResellersPanel's operating model is possibly way better than the currently very well-known cPanel hosting reseller setup. Read on to get to know why.
ResellersPanel - the risk-free reseller website hosting program
First of all, as opposed to the cPanel reseller web space hosting vendors, ResellersPanel will not tax the reseller one single cent. Not till the reseller accomplishes any new transactions or renewals. Which is quite reasonable, actually. This lowers the monetary risks to ground-zero degrees. With ResellersPanel's reseller hosting scheme, the reseller is not mixed up with monthly or annual down payments, donations, reseller taxes or installments in any way. Whereas the popular cPanel-based reseller hosting model depends chiefly on monthly or annual prepayments and taxes, which means... much larger financial hazards. Unlike ResellersPanel's reseller webspace hosting setup, the cPanel reseller hosting model is not interested in whether the reseller has made any deals or not - the monthly or annual reseller fees have to be paid out on time, in other words have to be paid up front. Full stop.
American, European and Australian clustered hosting packages
ResellersPanel is not simply a danger-free reseller web space hosting solution. ResellersPanel delivers REAL CLUSTERED HOSTING plans for reselling. Elsewhere, there is some limited evidence for the presence of a cloud web hosting platform. The cloud hosting accounts the resellers can custom create and market under their hosting brand names are available at 4 datacenter sites: in the United States, in the United Kingdom, in Sweden and in Australia!

How many cPanel web hosting companies offer cloud hosting services to the resellers and to their clientele?
Virtual Private Server web hosting, semi-dedicated server web hosting and dedicated web server reseller packages
How many reseller web space hosting retailers, besides ResellersPanel, allow their resellers to market Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated hosting at extremely attractive rates? Hepsia, the industry's best web hosting Control Panel, is added there as well, by default, at no supplementary or added cost. Unlimited hosted domain names, SSH and full server root privileges are also included in the function-rich web server accounts. What is more, the resellers can also offer over fifty generic and country code top-level domains and digital certificates to their clients.
