What Exactly is Web Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web has become an essential element in everyone's everyday routine. Everybody would like to have their own web page, whether for entertainment, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared hosting business is blossoming. Why don't you take a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the companies offer Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is very suited for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller platform that firms offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel web hosting CP user interface offers 3 levels of access - root (designated for the web host itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in most situations you are bound by the server hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth restrictions of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer virtual private servers or dedicated web server hosting solutions

The majority of the hosting providers providing virtual private servers and dedicated server do not actually object if you utilize the VPS hosting server or the dedicated hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to sell hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have complete authority over the entire physical machine, the possibility to perform any config modifications you think fit and the ability to keep track of all the users hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable specifications, but in most cases you cannot implement any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best Control Panel interface that allows you to resell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated or VPS is, again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP user interface lives up to your demands better.

What do you require to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a reseller and begin your web hosting business, you require a website, a billing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your customers' data is defended when they pay using your web site when ordering a web hosting product. Famous billing software platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a charge-free 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 clients. Their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they charge and support your clients for you, and permit you to sell our hosting services without having to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Moreover, they permit you to sell all their web hosting products - shared hosting services, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-for-use design template. The profit you gain is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing tactician and allure clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still offer shared cPanel web hosting reseller plans, as most companies do, and you can always order a VPS or a dedicated web hosting server and slice it into web hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a bouquet of design templates and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
