How Does Web Hosting Reseller Work?

The World Wide Web is a vital staple in our everyday routine. Everybody wants to create their own personal web site, whether for fun, for socialization or business purposes. The shared hosting business is flourishing. Why don't you take a share of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most corporations provide Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is extremely suited for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel web hosting CP software tool offers 3 levels of access - root (designated for the web hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the instances you are restricted by the server disk drive storage space and monthly traffic limits of your web hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS hosting or dedicated web server solutions

The majority of the web hosting service providers providing VPS hosting and dedicated server do not actually disapprove if you use the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated server to resell website hosting accounts. If you choose to sell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web hosting server, you will have total control over the whole physical machine, the ability to carry out any configuration changes you desire and the ability to keep an eye on all the account owners hosted on it. The virtual hosting servers offer comparable specs, but in the majority of the cases you cannot implement any kernel adjustments or changes, which require kernel module rearrangement. The best hosting Control Panel user interface that enables you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or virtual private web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which user interface satisfies your taste better.

What do you require to be a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and establish your reseller hosting business, you require a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make sure that your customers' information is protected when they make payments using your website when buying a product. Popular billing software systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing software platform and even support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, since they bill and support your clients on your behalf, and permit you to sell our hosting solutions without the need to buy anything upfront yourself. What is more, they permit you to resell all their hosting products - shared website hosting packages, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting packages. You can offer all of these to your clients via a ready-for-use design template. The profit you gain is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and attract 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 order a virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bonuses offered by their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will make your reseller life easier as well - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a selection of website layouts and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. We have data centers in 4 countries - Australia, the USA and the United Kingdom. It is an enormous chance for you to expand your hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you desire?
