Web Hosting Reseller Definition

The Internet is an essential component of everyone's everyday life. Everybody wishes to own their very own personal website, whether for pleasure, for socialization or commercial purposes. The hosting business niche is blossoming. Why don't you take a share of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most providers provide Linux-based web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is extremely apt for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller scheme that vendors provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting CP GUI includes 3 levels of access - root (meant for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the server hard disk space and traffic limits of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS packages or dedicated server packages

The bigger part of the hosting vendors offering VPS packages and dedicated package do not really object if you utilize the virtual web server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell web hosting accounts. If you elect to sell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting web server, you will have complete authority over the entire server, the possibility to carry out any configuration adjustments you deem relevant and the possibility to monitor all the customers hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable specifications, but in most instances you cannot perform any kernel modifications or modifications, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best CP GUI that enables you to sell website hosting accounts using your dedicated server or private virtual server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel tool satisfies your anticipations better.

What do you require to be a hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and begin your reseller hosting business, you need a web site, a billing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make sure that your customers' details are guarded when they pay via your web site when ordering a product. Famous invoicing software systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a charge-free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, an invoicing platform and even technical support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to sell our services without the need to buy anything in advance yourself. Besides, they permit you to sell all their products - shared web hosting plans, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages. You can sell all of these to your clients using a turn-key web page template. The profit you earn is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you determine yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and earn clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still furnish shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The gifts included in their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a variety of web design skins and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account.
