Description of Reseller Hosting

The World Wide Web has become a crucial fragment of our daily routine. Everybody would like to launch their very own website, whether for fun, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared hosting business niche is thriving. Why not get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the companies supply Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very applicable for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that corporations provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting Control Panel user interface includes three access levels - root (designated for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the cases you are bound by the server disk drive storage space and monthly bandwidth quota limitations of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS hosting or dedicated web hosting servers

The bigger part of the hosting corporations providing VPS hosting and dedicated server do not actually mind if you utilize the private virtual hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to sell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting web server, you will have total control over the whole machine, the possibility to implement any configuration modifications you wish and the possibility to keep track of all the account owners hosted on it. The private virtual web servers offer similar specs, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel modifications or modifications, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best hosting Control Panel software that allows you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting web server or private virtual web server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which CP user interface lives up to your desires better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and start your web hosting business, you need a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to ensure that your customers' details are safe when they pay via your web site when buying a service. Famous invoicing software systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, an invoicing software platform and even support for your clients. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the market, as they bill and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to sell our hosting solutions without the need to buy anything in advance yourself. Moreover, they allow you to resell all their products - shared web hosting plans, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can sell all of these to your clients using a ready-for-use web design template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and win customers. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still provide shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting companies do, and you can always obtain a virtual server or a dedicated hosting web server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel reseller hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a set of design themes and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
