What is Web Hosting Reseller?

The Internet has become a key element in everyone's everyday life. Everyone wants to build their own personal web page, whether for entertainment, for socialization or business ends. The shared hosting business niche is thriving. Why not get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most companies deliver Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting CP tool includes 3 levels of access - root (meant for the hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in most instances you are restricted by the web hosting server disk drive space and monthly traffic limits of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer virtual private servers packages or dedicated hosting server packages

Most of the web hosting suppliers offering virtual private servers packages and dedicated server do not actually mind if you utilize the virtual web hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you elect to sell hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated server, you will have total control over the entire physical server, the opportunity to make any configuration adjustments you deem relevant and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer comparable options, but in the majority of the instances you cannot make any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting Control Panel software tool that permits you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or virtual server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP tool lives up to your demands better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and establish your business, you need a web site, a billing software system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your clients' details are guarded when they pay via your website when ordering a web hosting service. Well-known invoicing systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-cost web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing software platform and even technical support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and permit you to resell our services without having to buy anything in advance yourself. What is more, they permit you to resell all their products - shared hosting plans, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can offer all of these to your clients via a ready-to-use website template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and gain clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always acquire a VPS web server or a dedicated server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel web hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a bunch of web themes and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
