How Does Reseller Web Hosting Work?

The Internet has become an indispensable component of our daily agenda. Everybody wants to set up their very own personal web portal, whether for entertainment, for socialization or business ends. The web hosting industry niche is blooming. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the providers supply Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely suited for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller web hosting platform that vendors offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting Control Panel interface offers three levels of access - root (designated for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the web server disk drive storage space and monthly traffic quota restrictions of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS hosting packages or dedicated server web hosting accounts

The bigger part of the hosting distributors offering VPS hosting packages and dedicated hosting do not really disapprove if you use the private virtual hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell hosting accounts. If you decide to sell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting web server, you will have total authority over the entire machine, the possibility to make any configuration changes you choose and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the clients hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer similar features, but in most instances you cannot make any kernel changes or changes, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting CP software tool that allows you to resell website hosting accounts using your dedicated or VPS hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel matches your needs better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and establish your hosting business, you require a web site, a billing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your clients' info is guarded when they pay using your website when ordering a product. Famous invoicing systems that you can use 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 software system and even support for your clients. Their reseller web hosting program is unique on the marketplace, as they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our web hosting solutions without having to purchase anything in advance yourself. In addition, they permit you to resell all their web hosting services - shared web hosting solutions, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your customers via a ready-to-use website template. The profit you gain is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing tactician and seduce clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still deliver shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always order a virtual private web hosting server or a dedicated web server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself.
