Reseller Hosting Description

The World Wide Web is an indispensable staple in everybody's everyday life. Everybody desires to launch their own website, whether for entertainment, for socialisation or commercial ends. The shared hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not get a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most firms offer Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that vendors provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP software offers 3 access levels - root (meant for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the web server hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth limits of your reseller hosting 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 or dedicated server web hosting plans

Most of the web hosting providers providing VPS hosting and dedicated server do not really object if you utilize the virtual private hosting server or the dedicated server to sell web hosting accounts. If you choose to resell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated server, you will have full control over the whole physical server, the possibility to carry out any config modifications you think fit and the possibility to monitor all the account holders hosted on it. The virtual private web servers offer comparable specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot perform any kernel modifications or changes, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest CP user interface that allows you to resell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated web server or virtual web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which CP software matches your preferences better.

What do you require to become a reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and kick off your reseller hosting business, you need a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your clients' details are safe when they pay using your web site when purchasing a hosting service. Famous billing platforms that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, an invoicing system and even support for your clients. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers for you, and permit you to resell our web hosting solutions without the need to buy anything beforehand yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to resell all their products - shared website hosting packages, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients using a turn-key website template. The profit you make is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and tempt customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller hosting packages, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always acquire a VPS or a dedicated hosting server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The gifts coming with their cPanel reseller hosting plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a bunch of web page layouts and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account.
