What Does Hosting Reseller Signify?

The World Wide Web has become a crucial element in everyone's everyday routine. Everybody would like to establish their own personal web portal, whether for amusement, for socialization or business ends. The web hosting business is blossoming. Why not get a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most firms provide Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is extremely suited for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller scheme that companies provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP interface allows three levels of access - root (intended for the web host itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the web content storage space and bandwidth restrictions of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS hosting plans or dedicated hosting packages

Most of the web hosting distributors offering VPS hosting plans and dedicated hosting do not actually mind if you utilize the virtual server or the dedicated web server to resell hosting accounts. If you opt to resell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated server, you will have complete authority over the entire server, the ability to carry out any configuration adjustments you deem appropriate and the opportunity to keep track of all the customers hosted on it. The private virtual hosting servers offer comparable specs, but in the majority of the cases you cannot perform any kernel modifications or changes, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting CP tool that enables you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web server or virtual private hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which interface matches your anticipations better.

What do you need to become a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and kick off your web hosting business, you need a website, a billing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your clients' info is guarded when they make payments using your web site when purchasing a hosting service. Popular invoicing platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-charge hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing system and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, since they bill and support your clients on your behalf, and permit you to resell our hosting solutions without having to purchase anything in advance yourself. Additionally, they allow you to sell all their web hosting products - shared website hosting solutions, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-for-use web site template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you assign yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing tactician and acquire customers. If that is a little too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a private virtual web server or a dedicated hosting server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The gifts included in their cPanel hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a variety of site layouts and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
