What Precisely is Web Hosting Reseller?

The Internet has become a key component of our daily routine. Everyone wants to set up their own personal web portal, whether for fun, for socialisation or commercial ends. The hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not get a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the providers supply Linux-driven web hosting services. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very apposite for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller scheme that corporations offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel Control Panel graphical user interface allows three access levels - root (meant for the hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the web hosting server disk drive space and monthly traffic quota restrictions of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS services or dedicated web hosting server solutions

The majority of the web hosting distributors offering VPS services and dedicated server do not actually object if you use the VPS hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you decide to sell hosting accounts using a dedicated web server, you will have complete control over the entire physical machine, the opportunity to carry out any configuration modifications you think fit and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The private virtual web hosting servers offer similar specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot perform any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting Control Panel software that allows you to sell hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated web hosting server or private virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel interface meets your preferences better.

What do you require to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and begin your web hosting business, you demand a web site, a billing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your customers' data is secure when they make payments via your web site when purchasing a service. Well-known invoicing systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing software system and even support for your clients. Their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, as they charge and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to resell our web hosting solutions without having to buy anything upfront yourself. Furthermore, they permit you to sell all their products - shared hosting plans, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients via a turn-key website template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing strategist and lure customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel web hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always order a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The gifts included in their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will make your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a set of web site skins and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account. We have data center facilities in four countries - Australia, the US and Britain. It is a huge chance for you to spread your web hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you wish for?
