Hosting Reseller Explanation

The World Wide Web has become an essential component of everybody's daily agenda. Everybody would like to set up their own personal website, whether for pleasure, for socialisation or business purposes. The shared hosting business niche is blooming. Why don't you get a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the corporations supply Linux-based hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely apt for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller platform that firms provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel Control Panel interface offers 3 levels of access - root (meant for the hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the hosting server storage space and monthly traffic limits of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS hosting or dedicated hosting server solutions

Most of the web hosting providers providing VPS hosting and dedicated hosting do not really object if you use the virtual private hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell web hosting accounts. If you choose to resell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will have complete authority over the entire machine, the ability to make any configuration modifications you see fit and the ability to keep track of all the customers hosted on it. The private virtual hosting servers offer similar options, but in most instances you cannot implement any kernel changes or changes, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The best CP tool that permits you to sell website hosting accounts using your dedicated server or virtual web hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which user interface measures up to your requirements better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and kick off your web hosting business, you need a website, a billing system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' details are guarded when they pay via your website when buying a service. Well-known billing software systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing platform and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they bill and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell our hosting services without the need to purchase anything in advance yourself. Besides, they allow you to sell all their products - shared hosting plans, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages. You can sell all of these to your clients via a ready-to-use design template. The profit you make is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing tactician and gain clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still furnish shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as most companies do, and you can always get a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server and slice it into hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel hosting reseller plans will make your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a bunch of design skins and even a free eNom reseller account.
