How Does Reseller Web Hosting Function?

The World Wide Web is an integral fragment of our everyday agenda. Everyone wants to own their own web site, whether for entertainment, for socialisation or commercial purposes. The hosting industry niche is flourishing. Why not take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

The majority of the vendors deliver Linux-based hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting platform that corporations provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel web hosting CP user interface offers 3 access levels - root (designated for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in most cases you are bound by the web storage space and traffic quota limits of your reseller web hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS or dedicated server web hosting plans

The greater part of the hosts providing VPS and dedicated server do not really disapprove if you use the private virtual server or the dedicated hosting server to sell web hosting accounts. If you decide to resell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting server, you will have full authority over the whole server, the ability to carry out any configuration changes you wish and the ability to keep track of all the clients hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in the majority of the cases you cannot make any kernel adjustments or modifications, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The best hosting Control Panel software tool that permits you to sell hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated web server or virtual web server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP user interface fits your expectations better.

What do you need to become a hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and kick off your business, you need a web site, a billing software system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make sure that your customers' details are safe when they make payments using your web site when buying a hosting product. Popular invoicing systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-charge reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing platform and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller web hosting program is unique on the marketplace, as they bill and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell our services without the need to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Besides, they permit you to resell all their web hosting solutions - shared hosting solutions, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can sell all of these to your customers using a ready-for-use website template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing tactician and tempt customers. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as the majority of the reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always order a VPS web server or a dedicated hosting web server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel reseller web hosting plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a selection of website layouts and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account.
