How Web Hosting Reseller Operates
The Internet has become a vital component of everybody's everyday routine. Everybody wants to own their very own personal website, whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or business purposes. The shared hosting industry niche is blossoming. Why don't you take a chunk of the pie yourself?
What can you resell?
The majority of the corporations supply Linux-driven web hosting services. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is extremely suited for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller scheme that vendors provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting Control Panel interface includes 3 levels of access - root (designated for the hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are restricted by the hard disk storage space and web traffic quota limitations of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.
Sell VPS hosting or dedicated web servers
Most of the hosting providers providing VPS hosting and dedicated server do not really object if you use the private virtual hosting server or the dedicated server to sell web hosting accounts. If you choose to sell hosting accounts using a dedicated web server, you will have full authority over the entire physical server, the opportunity to implement any configuration adjustments you want and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the customers hosted on it. The VPS hosting servers offer similar specs, but in most cases you cannot make any kernel modifications or adjustments, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest web hosting CP software tool that allows you to resell hosting accounts using your dedicated hosting web server or virtual private hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which CP user interface corresponds to your requirements better.
What do you need to be a web hosting reseller?
In order to be a hosting reseller and kick off your reseller hosting business, you require a website, a billing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make certain that your customers' details are protected when they pay using your web site when ordering a product. Well-known billing systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing software system and even technical support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the market, since they bill and support your clients for you, and allow you to resell our hosting services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. Moreover, they permit you to sell all their hosting products - shared website hosting plans, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your customers via a ready-to-use website template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and lure clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still provide shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as most companies do, and you can always acquire a virtual web server or a dedicated web server and partition it into hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The gifts included in their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, an assortment of site layouts and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
