Definition of Reseller Web Hosting

The Internet is an indispensable staple in our daily routine. Everybody wants to have their very own personal site, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or commercial ends. The website hosting industry niche is blossoming. Why don't you take a share of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the providers deliver Linux-based hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely apposite for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting platform that firms offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting Control Panel graphical user interface allows 3 levels of access - root (reserved for the hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the web hosting server storage space and monthly bandwidth quota restrictions of your reseller web hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS web hosting or dedicated web server hosting plans

The majority of the web hosting service providers offering VPS web hosting and dedicated web hosting do not really disapprove if you use the virtual server or the dedicated server to resell web hosting accounts. If you opt to sell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will have full control over the entire machine, the ability to make any config modifications you want and the ability to keep track of all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual web hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot make any kernel modifications or modifications, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting Control Panel user interface that allows you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated server or VPS server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP befits your expectations better.

What do you require to become a hosting reseller?

In order to be a reseller and establish your reseller web hosting business, you need a web site, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your clients' details are safe when they make payments using your website when purchasing a hosting product. Famous billing software systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a cost-free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing software system and even support for your clients. Their reseller web hosting program is without an analogue on the market, since they bill and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to sell our hosting solutions without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. What is more, they permit you to sell all their hosting products - shared website hosting services, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can sell 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 need to do is be a decent marketing tactician and win clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a virtual private web server or a dedicated hosting server and divide it into web hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The gifts coming with their cPanel reseller web hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a compilation of web layouts and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
