Hosting Reseller Explanation

The Internet has become an essential factor in our daily agenda. Everybody wishes to have their own web portal, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or business purposes. The hosting business niche is blooming. Why not get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the firms supply Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller scheme that firms provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting CP software tool offers 3 levels of access - root (reserved for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are restricted by the web server disk space and bandwidth limitations of your hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS services or dedicated web server solutions

Most of the web hosts offering VPS services and dedicated server do not actually disapprove if you utilize the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you choose to sell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting web server, you will have total authority over the whole physical server, the ability to implement any configuration adjustments you want and the ability to keep track of all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The virtual servers offer similar specifications, but in most instances you cannot make any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The finest hosting Control Panel tool that permits you to resell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated or virtual web server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which CP tool suits your anticipations better.

What do you require to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a reseller and commence your business, you need a website, a billing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to ensure that your customers' data is shielded when they pay via your web site when ordering a web hosting product. Famous billing platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing platform and even support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they bill and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell our hosting solutions without the need to buy anything in advance yourself. In addition, they allow you to resell all their services - shared hosting packages, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your clients using a turn-key design template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and obtain clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still offer shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always acquire a virtual private web server or a dedicated hosting server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bounties coming with their cPanel hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a variety of site skins and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account.
