Reseller Hosting
ResellersPanel offers two separate reseller hosting programs - the Free Reseller Web Hosting Program and the more advanced cPanel Hosting Reseller Program, so you can choose which is the right reseller hosting program for you.

Basic knowledge versus technical ability

The Free Reseller Hosting Program is excellent if you possess only elementary computer skills. It is based on an in-house built reseller hosting platform. You won't be able to encounter it anywhere else on the World Wide Web. The cPanel Reseller Hosting Program, on the other hand, is for trained resellers.

No reseller hosting fees vs. recurring taxes

With ResellersPanel, you do not pay any setup taxes as a free hosting reseller. You won't be charged a penny in order to resell the company's web hosting packages. You won't be charged a penny if you do not generate any sales either. As a cPanel hosting reseller, you will be asked to pay a monthly tax. Even so, you only pay for the products that you will be reselling.

A one-stop reseller hosting solution vs. various management user interfaces

The free reseller does not need to have computer programming and web site administration experience. With ResellersPanel's easy-to-use point & click Reseller Control Panel tool, you can quickly set up your online reseller hosting store. Using the free-of-charge ready-to-use front-store templates, you can effortlessly configure your web hosting reseller store. You can set up the packages that you wish to resell to your clients and set price tags on them with a few clicks of the mouse. You can sell Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting and Dedicated Servers.
The cPanel Reseller Hosting Program offers cPanel-based plans with various characteristics and system resource quotas. The web hosting packages and the end customers' websites are managed via different interfaces.

Private-label reseller hosting program tools vs. custom branding possibilities

The free hosting resellers are offered a range of white-label options, which will enhance their reseller anonymity. You can choose your own company name, which will be shown on your web hosting store, inside your clients' web hosting Control Panel tools and on all documents related to your web hosting reseller store. You can also register unique domain names for your store at an extremely low price, if you are more serious about reselling and would like to boost your income. Picking one of the Private DNS Cluster packages can enlarge your brand awareness amongst your current and prospective clients.
The cPanel resellers will have to handle these features themselves, but that permits them to more accurately target their prospective marketplaces and customers.

Ensured customer support v. self-support opportunities

With the Free Reseller Hosting Program, ResellersPanel takes care of the client support provision. The practiced cPanel hosting resellers will have to handle the client support provision themselves. The free resellers will have complete authority over their web hosting reseller stores and bigger flexibility in setting up and marketing their web hosting packages.
The cPanel hosting resellers can widen their reseller hosting business reach by upgrading to a more advanced cPanel reseller package, giving them a larger quota of resources.

Resell stand-alone hosting packages or split the resources as you think fit

The free reseller resells the company's wholesale-priced hosting plans or their own custom-made packages, while ResellersPanel takes care of all payment processing and sales verification assignments and provides 24-7 technical support to the hosting resellers and to their clients. The hosting resellers collect the difference between their retail price and ResellersPanel's wholesale price.
The cPanel web hosting reseller purchases the company's pre-made hosting packages first and then exerts full command over the way in which the resources are divided and over the web hosting plans' prices. So, the cPanel hosting reseller enjoys a bigger earning potential.

A free web hosting reseller or a cPanel hosting reseller?

So, if you possess elementary computer literacy, the Free Reseller Hosting Program offers you all the tools you require to kickstart your hosting business without any financial risk. The Free Reseller Web Hosting Program also offers options for expert resellers. If you favor the traditional reseller web hosting methods and have the required technical and marketing know-how - then the cPanel Reseller Program is more suitable for you.
