How Does Reseller Web Hosting Function?

The Internet is an integral element in everyone's everyday agenda. Everybody would like to have their own personal web page, whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or business ends. The web hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the corporations offer Linux-powered web hosting services. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very apposite for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting scheme that companies offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP software includes 3 levels of access - root (retained for the web hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in most instances you are bound by the disk drive storage space and monthly bandwidth limitations of your reseller web hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS hosting services or dedicated server solutions

The majority of the hosting suppliers providing VPS hosting services and dedicated hosting do not actually object if you utilize the virtual private web hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell web hosting accounts. If you choose to sell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web server, you will have total control over the entire physical server, the opportunity to perform any configuration adjustments you think fit and the ability to keep an eye on all the customers hosted on it. The private virtual web servers offer similar specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot make any kernel modifications or modifications, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting Control Panel tool that allows you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or virtual private web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP interface lives up to your expectations better.

What do you need to become a reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and begin your reseller hosting business, you demand a website, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make sure that your clients' details are secure when they make payments via your web site when buying a web hosting service. Famous invoicing platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-cost reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, an invoicing software platform and even support for your clients. Their reseller web hosting program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our hosting services without having to purchase anything in advance yourself. Additionally, they permit you to sell all their hosting services - shared hosting services, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-for-use web site template. The profit you earn is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you determine yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and tempt clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still supply shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as most reseller hosting companies do, and you can always obtain a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting server and split it into web hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The extras coming with their cPanel reseller web hosting packages will render your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a variety of site layouts and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. We have datacenters in 4 countries - Australia, the United States of America and Britain. It is a fantastic chance for you to expand your web hosting business on three continents.
