What is Web Hosting Reseller?

The Internet has become an indispensable part of everybody's everyday life. Everybody wishes to own their very own web page, whether for pleasure, for socialization or commercial ends. The hosting industry is blossoming. Why don't you get a part of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most vendors offer Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is very suited for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller platform that firms provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP graphical user interface offers three levels of access - root (intended for the web hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the cases you are bound by the server storage space and traffic quota restrictions of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS or dedicated hosting server accounts

The greater part of the web hosting service providers offering VPS and dedicated server do not really object if you utilize the virtual private web server or the dedicated hosting server to resell web hosting accounts. If you opt to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated web server, you will have total control over the entire machine, the possibility to carry out any configuration adjustments you want and the opportunity to keep track of all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel modifications or modifications, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting CP interface that allows you to sell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or VPS web server is, again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel corresponds to your demands better.

What do you require to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and launch your reseller web hosting business, you need a web site, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make certain that your customers' details are safe when they make payments via your website when purchasing a web hosting product. Famous billing software systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-cost web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing software system and even support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the market, since they bill and support your clients for you, and allow you to resell our hosting services without having to purchase anything in advance yourself. Moreover, they permit you to sell all their web hosting products - shared web hosting services, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages. You can offer all of these to your clients via a ready-to-use site template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing strategist and earn clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still supply shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as most reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always acquire a VPS server or a dedicated hosting server and partition it into hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a bunch of web site layouts and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account.
