Reseller Hosting Defined

The Internet has become an essential fragment of everyone's daily routine. Everyone would like to set up their very own personal website, whether for entertainment, for socialization or business ends. The shared web hosting business is blossoming. Why don't you get a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most providers furnish Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is very apt for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting platform that providers offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP user interface allows three levels of access - root (reserved for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in most instances you are bound by the hosting server disk drive space and traffic limitations of your reseller hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS web hosting or dedicated web server packages

The greater part of the hosting service providers providing VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not actually disapprove if you utilize the virtual private hosting server or the dedicated web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you elect to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated web hosting server, you will have total authority over the whole physical machine, the possibility to make any configuration adjustments you think fit and the ability to monitor all the hosting account owners hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable specs, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel changes or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting CP user interface that enables you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated or VPS web server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel suits your needs better.

What do you need to be a hosting reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and establish your business, you demand a website, a billing system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make certain that your customers' data is secure when they make payments using your web site when ordering a service. Well-known invoicing software systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing software system and even technical support for your clients. Their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the market, since they bill and support your clients for you, and allow you to resell our services without having to buy anything beforehand yourself. Besides, they allow you to resell all their services - shared hosting packages, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting packages. You can offer all of these to your clients via a ready-to-use design template. The profit you earn is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you assign yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and gain customers. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still supply shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as most reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a VPS web server or a dedicated hosting web server and split it into web hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The extras coming with their cPanel reseller hosting plans will render your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a bouquet of web design skins and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. We have datacenters in 4 countries - Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom. It is an excellent chance for you to spread your hosting business on three continents.
