Definition of Hosting Reseller

The World Wide Web is an indispensable component of everybody's everyday life. Everyone desires to create their own personal site, whether for amusement, for socialization or commercial purposes. The website hosting industry is thriving. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the providers distribute Linux-based web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller platform that companies provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP user interface allows 3 access levels - root (designated for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the instances you are restricted by the disk storage space and traffic quota restrictions of your hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS web hosting or dedicated server web hosting solutions

The greater part of the web hosting corporations offering VPS web hosting and dedicated web hosting do not actually object if you utilize the private virtual server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you opt to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated server, you will have total authority over the whole physical server, the ability to perform any config modifications you think fit and the possibility to keep an eye on all the account holders hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer comparable specs, but in most cases you cannot implement any kernel adjustments or changes, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that permits you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting web server or virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel software befits your demands better.

What do you require to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and launch your web hosting business, you require a web site, an invoicing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your clients' details are protected when they pay using your website when purchasing a web hosting service. Popular billing systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing system and even support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to resell our services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. Moreover, they allow you to sell all their web hosting services - shared hosting plans, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can offer all of these to your clients using a turn-key design template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you set yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and acquire customers. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel hosting reseller packages, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a virtual server or a dedicated web server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The gifts offered by their cPanel hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, an assortment of website skins and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
