Web Hosting Reseller Definition

The World Wide Web has become a vital factor in everyone's daily life. Everybody would like to launch their very own personal site, whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or business purposes. The shared hosting business is flourishing. Why don't you take a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most companies offer Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller platform that firms provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel Control Panel interface offers three access levels - root (meant for the hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the web hosting server hard disk storage space and bandwidth quota limitations of your web hosting reseller package. 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 hosting web server plans

Most of the hosting distributors providing VPS hosting and dedicated hosting do not actually object if you use the VPS or the dedicated hosting server to sell web hosting accounts. If you opt to sell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated server, you will have complete control over the entire machine, the opportunity to implement any configuration changes you think fit and the ability to keep track of all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable options, but in most cases you cannot make any kernel changes or modifications, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The finest hosting CP graphical user interface that enables you to resell web hosting accounts using your dedicated web hosting server or private virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP graphical user interface fulfills your anticipations better.

What do you require to be a hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and kick off your reseller web hosting business, you require a website, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make sure that your customers' information is defended when they pay via your web site when purchasing a hosting product. Famous billing systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing system and even support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the market, as they bill and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to resell our web hosting services without having to buy anything upfront yourself. Besides, they allow you to resell all their web hosting solutions - shared hosting solutions, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can sell all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use web page template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and attract customers. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still deliver shared cPanel web hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the companies do, and you can always obtain a virtual private web server or a dedicated hosting web server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The presents coming with their cPanel web hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier too - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, an array of site themes and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
