What Does Web Hosting Reseller Signify?

The World Wide Web is a crucial fragment of our daily life. Everybody wishes to own their very own personal web site, whether for fun, for socialization or business ends. The web hosting industry is blooming. Why don't you take a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most corporations supply Linux-driven web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very adequate for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting CP software allows 3 access levels - root (intended for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the situations you are restricted by the hosting server disk space and monthly bandwidth quota 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.

Resell VPS hosting plans or dedicated hosting solutions

Most of the web hosting corporations providing VPS hosting plans and dedicated hosting do not really mind if you utilize the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated hosting server to resell hosting accounts. If you elect to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have full control over the whole physical machine, the ability to implement any configuration modifications you think fit and the opportunity to monitor all the account holders hosted on it. The virtual web hosting servers offer comparable specs, but in the majority of the cases you cannot implement any kernel changes or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best Control Panel software tool that permits you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated server or virtual private web server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP user interface suits your demands better.

What do you require to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and commence your reseller web hosting business, you need a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your customers' data is shielded when they make payments via your web site when ordering a product. Popular billing systems that you can avail of 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 web site, a billing platform and even support for your clients. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, as they charge and support your clients for you, and allow you to resell our web hosting services without the need to purchase anything upfront yourself. What is more, they permit you to resell all their web hosting products - shared website hosting services, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can sell all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use design template. The profit you make is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you determine yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and seduce clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still provide shared cPanel web hosting reseller plans, as most reseller hosting companies do, and you can always obtain a VPS hosting server or a dedicated hosting server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a variety of web design layouts and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account.
