What Does Reseller Web Hosting Represent?

The Internet is a vital staple in everybody's daily agenda. Everyone wants to own their very own personal web site, whether for amusement, for socialisation or commercial ends. The shared hosting business is thriving. Why not get a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most corporations provide Linux-based hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very apt for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller web hosting platform that firms provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting Control Panel tool allows 3 levels of access - root (intended for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the instances you are restricted by the hard disk space and monthly traffic limits of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell virtual private servers plans or dedicated web hosting server solutions

The majority of the hosting suppliers offering virtual private servers plans and dedicated server do not really mind if you utilize the virtual hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to resell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web server, you will have complete control over the whole machine, the opportunity to make any configuration modifications you choose and the opportunity to monitor all the account owners hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer similar options, but in most instances you cannot perform any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting Control Panel tool that enables you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web server or private virtual web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel interface lives up to your demands better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and launch your reseller web hosting business, you require a website, a billing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to ensure that your customers' information is defended when they pay using your website when purchasing a service. Well-known billing software platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a charge-free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, an invoicing system and even technical support for your clients. Their reseller web hosting program is unique on the market, since they bill and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell our web hosting services without having to buy anything upfront yourself. In addition, they permit you to sell all their web hosting services - shared website hosting plans, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can offer all of these to your customers using a turn-key template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and lure clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still deliver shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as most reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always order a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web server and slice it into hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The gifts offered by their cPanel reseller web hosting plans will make your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a compilation of web site layouts and even a free eNom reseller account. We have data centers in 4 countries - Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom. It is a great opportunity for you to spread your web hosting business on 3 continents.
