How Does Hosting Reseller Function?

The Internet is an integral part of everyone's daily life. Everyone would like to possess their own personal web portal, whether for amusement, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared web hosting industry niche is blossoming. Why don't you get a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the companies furnish Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very suitable for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller platform that firms offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting CP user interface includes 3 levels of access - root (reserved for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the web server hard drive space and web traffic limits of your 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.

Offer VPS web hosting or dedicated server packages

The greater part of the web hosting corporations providing VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not actually object if you use the virtual private web server or the dedicated hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to resell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will have complete control over the whole physical machine, the possibility to make any config modifications you wish and the ability to keep track of all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual private hosting servers offer similar specs, but in the majority of the cases you cannot make any kernel changes or changes, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best hosting Control Panel interface that allows you to resell web hosting accounts using your dedicated server or virtual server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which GUI fulfills your taste better.

What do you require to become a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and establish your web hosting business, you need a website, a billing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to ensure that your customers' data is guarded when they pay using your website when ordering a web hosting service. Famous invoicing software platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a charge-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, an invoicing software platform and even technical support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, since they charge and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our web hosting services without the need to purchase anything beforehand yourself. What is more, they allow you to resell all their hosting services - shared website hosting packages, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting packages. You can sell all of these to your clients using a turn-key web site template. The profit you earn is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and attract customers. If that is a little too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always order a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself.
