What Precisely is Reseller Hosting?

The World Wide Web is a crucial staple in our daily life. Everyone desires to create their own web page, whether for amusement, for socialisation or business ends. The web hosting business is blossoming. Why don't you get a part of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most vendors distribute Linux-driven web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is very suitable for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting platform that corporations offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting Control Panel software allows 3 access levels - root (intended for the host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are bound by the web server hard disk storage space and bandwidth restrictions of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS web hosting or dedicated server web hosting solutions

Most of the web hosting firms providing VPS web hosting and dedicated web hosting do not actually object if you utilize the VPS web server or the dedicated web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you choose to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have full authority over the entire server, the ability to implement any config adjustments you wish and the ability to keep track of all the customers hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer similar specs, but in most instances you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The best Control Panel software that enables you to sell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated server or virtual private web server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP GUI suits your needs better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and launch your reseller web hosting business, you require a web site, a billing platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your customers' information is defended when they pay using your web site when ordering a web hosting service. Popular invoicing systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing platform and even support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. Furthermore, they permit you to resell all their products - shared web hosting services, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your customers using a turn-key template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you set yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and allure clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still supply shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as most reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always get a virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting server and partition it into hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel reseller hosting plans will make your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, an array of web skins and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account.
