What Precisely is Reseller Web Hosting?

The Internet has become a key factor in everyone's daily agenda. Everyone wants to build their very own personal web portal, whether for entertainment, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared hosting industry niche is flourishing. Why don't you get a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most companies furnish Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is very suited for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller web hosting scheme that firms provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting Control Panel interface includes three access levels - root (meant for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are bound by the web hosting server disk drive space and monthly traffic restrictions of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS hosting or dedicated web server hosting packages

The majority of the web hosting suppliers offering VPS hosting and dedicated server do not really mind if you use the virtual private web server or the dedicated hosting web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you decide to sell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web hosting server, you will have complete authority over the entire server, the possibility to carry out any config changes you deem necessary and the ability to keep an eye on all the account owners hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot perform any kernel changes or adjustments, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting Control Panel interface that enables you to sell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated server or VPS web hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel fits your demands better.

What do you need to be a hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and begin your reseller web hosting business, you require a web site, a billing software system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your customers' details are protected when they make payments using your website when buying a product. Popular invoicing software platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a charge-free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing system and even support for your clients. Their reseller web hosting program is unique on the market, since they bill and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to sell our web hosting solutions without having to buy anything beforehand yourself. In addition, they permit you to resell all their hosting products - shared website hosting solutions, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use web site template. The profit you earn is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and entice customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as the majority of the companies do, and you can always acquire a virtual server or a dedicated web server and slice it into web hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel reseller web hosting plans will make your reseller life easier too - they supply you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, an array of design skins and even a free eNom reseller account.
