A reseller buys a hosting package from a hosting company and then tries to sell it independently. As a reseller you create your own hosting plans you are free to resell each plan under your own brand name and charge your customers whatever you want.


For example you can purchase a reseller package for $100 per year, and then sell 20 individual hosting plans for $15 per year. When picking a solid reseller hosting program look at how many clients you can add per account before you sign-up. Some reseller hosts limit the number of accounts you can create. But,you can always upgrade your reseller hosting package, if you have more clients and need more space or bandwidth.


You will have full control over all of your customers' hosting packages via a central reseller control panel. You can add, remove and modify any of your customers domains within your reseller hosting plan directly from this central control panel, called web host manager.


As a reseller you can decide what kinds of services you will sell. You can provide shared hosting, dedicated hosting or co-location web hosting. Start small if you are very new to the concept of host reselling, and then you can expand as you get more and more customers. In that case offering domain registration is an excellent way to make money.


Running your own web hosting reseller company has never been easier. There are tens of thousands of people earning extra money or full time salaries as hosting resellers. To become a reseller, you don't need to have a lot of technical knowledge, but some sales and internet marketing knowledge is required. Also, you do not require a lot of upfront investment. All you need is a decent computer for your customer accounts management, and a good Internet connection.
