Reseller Web Hosting Explanation

The Internet has become a key fragment of everyone's everyday life. Everybody wants to set up their very own website, whether for pleasure, for socialisation or business purposes. The hosting business is thriving. Why not get a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most companies distribute Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is very apt for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller web hosting scheme that vendors offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel Control Panel tool offers three levels of access - root (retained for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most circumstances you are restricted by the web space and monthly bandwidth quota limits of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS or dedicated hosting server packages

The bigger part of the web hosting distributors offering VPS and dedicated server do not actually disapprove if you use the VPS hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have full control over the entire physical machine, the possibility to carry out any configuration adjustments you deem appropriate and the possibility to monitor all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The private virtual web hosting servers offer similar specifications, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel adjustments or modifications, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting CP tool that permits you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting server or private virtual web hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel fulfills your preferences better.

What do you require to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and kick off your reseller hosting business, you require a web site, a billing 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 customers' information is defended when they make payments using your website when ordering a web hosting product. Well-known invoicing software systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing platform and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller web hosting program is without an analogue on the market, as they bill and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to resell our web hosting solutions without the need to buy anything in advance yourself. Besides, they permit you to sell all their web hosting products - shared hosting solutions, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can sell all of these to your clients via a ready-for-use template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you settle yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing tactician and tempt customers. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still deliver shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as most reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a VPS hosting server or a dedicated server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The bounties offered by their cPanel reseller web hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a set of site themes and even a free eNom reseller account.
