What Actually is Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web is an indispensable fragment of our everyday agenda. Everyone wishes to have their very own personal web page, whether for fun, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared hosting industry is flourishing. Why not take a part of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the providers supply Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is extremely suited for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller platform that providers offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting CP interface includes 3 levels of access - root (retained for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the cases you are restricted by the server hard drive space and monthly bandwidth restrictions 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.

Resell VPS hosting or dedicated web server hosting accounts

The greater part of the hosting service providers providing VPS hosting and dedicated hosting do not actually object if you use the VPS or the dedicated hosting web server to resell hosting accounts. If you elect to resell web hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting web server, you will have complete authority over the entire physical server, the possibility to make any config modifications you prefer and the opportunity to monitor all the customers hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable options, but in the majority of the cases you cannot make any kernel adjustments or modifications, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best hosting CP software tool that enables you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or virtual private web hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP matches your taste better.

What do you require to be a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and launch your reseller hosting business, you demand a website, a billing platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your clients' data is protected when they pay via your website when purchasing a web hosting product. Popular invoicing platforms that you can avail 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-for-use website, an invoicing system and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, as they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to resell our services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. Besides, they allow you to resell all their hosting services - shared website hosting plans, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages. You can sell all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use web site template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing strategist and attract customers. If that is a little too bold for you, they still provide shared cPanel hosting reseller packages, as most companies do, and you can always obtain a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated web server and divide it into hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The presents coming with their cPanel hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a collection of design themes and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account. We have datacenters in 4 countries - Australia, the US and Britain. It is an exceptional chance for you to spread your hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you ask for?
