What is Web Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web is a vital part of everyone's daily agenda. Everybody would like to build their own web portal, whether for entertainment, for socialisation or business ends. The hosting business is thriving. Why not get a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the providers deliver Linux-powered web hosting services. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is extremely apposite for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller scheme that corporations offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP GUI allows 3 access levels - root (retained for the hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in most situations you are bound by the server disk 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.

Sell VPS plans or dedicated hosting servers

The majority of the hosts providing VPS plans and dedicated server do not really disapprove if you utilize the virtual private web server or the dedicated hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you elect to sell web hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web hosting server, you will have total authority over the whole server, the opportunity to carry out any config changes you like and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual hosting servers offer similar features, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest web hosting CP user interface that permits you to sell web hosting accounts using your dedicated hosting server or virtual server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which user interface measures up to your demands better.

What do you require to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and establish your web hosting business, you demand a web site, a billing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to ensure that your clients' details are protected when they make payments using your website when purchasing a hosting product. Well-known billing software platforms that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing platform and even technical support for your clients. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, since they charge and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to sell our hosting solutions without having to buy anything beforehand yourself. Furthermore, they permit you to resell all their hosting solutions - shared hosting packages, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated 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 allure customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still supply shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as most reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always order a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated server and divide it into web hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bounties offered by their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will make your reseller life easier too - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a set of skins and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account. We have data centers in four countries - Australia, the States and Britain. It is a fantastic chance for you to spread your hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you ask for?
