Getting Started with Reseller Hosting
There are a lot of different ways to make money online. The popularity of the internet has created many remote jobs and freelancing opportunities. With reseller hosting plans, you can capitalize on the need for businesses to have their own websites, helping you make money without too much extra effort. Getting started as a hosting reseller is relatively easy once you know how it all works.
What is Reseller Hosting?
Reseller hosting is when someone, usually a freelancer, offers hosting services to a client and uses a third-party hosting service to provide them. There’s nothing sketchy or untoward about the process; it’s really just a way for two businesses to support each other. The reseller gets a boost to their business by offering a necessary service to their clients, and the hosting provider gets a boost by selling out more server space.
When someone purchases a reseller hosting plan, they can rebrand and repackage it to fit their business. This means that whenever a client logs into their cPanel, they’ll see the name, logo, and contact information of the reseller. Clients never have to know that the reseller is using a third-party hosting service, helping them maintain brand integrity.
Why Reseller Hosting Works
Reseller hosting has become increasingly popular, and it’s easy to see why. With reseller hosting plans, freelancers can attract new clients by offering hosting services. The ability to rebrand each sold package helps add to the professionalism of their business.
But it’s not all just about the client end. For freelancers who offer hosting as part of their web design or SEO services, having direct access to the hosting provider is crucial. When working through a client to access the cPanel or WHM, freelancers lose a lot of time and energy that could be spent elsewhere. When they resell hosting plans directly from the provider, however, they have full access and control to help speed up their other jobs.

Is Reseller Hosting Right for You?
Reseller hosting can be a great way to make some extra money and get your name out there in the professional hosting world. But it might not be the right path for everyone. Reseller hosting works best for:
Freelancers who already offer web-related services, such as website design or content writing
Contractors with clients they already host for, but that need additional help in keeping their hosting services strong
Part-time resellers who have the time to dedicate to finding more clients and running/managing their accounts for them
While reseller hosting can be quick and easy, you’ll make more money and have better client satisfaction if you can provide the time and energy needed to support each account. Reseller hosting can greatly improve your freelance business or provide extra income as a part-time investment.

Getting to Know Cloud Hosting
With quicker connection speeds, increased security, and the ability to upgrade or downgrade a plan at any time, cloud hosting has become a new favorite for many website owners. But it's not always for everyone or every business. Knowing the specifics of how cloud hosting works and the differences between it and physical hosting can help you decide if it's right for you.
