How Web Hosting Reseller Works

The Internet has become a vital staple in everybody's everyday agenda. Everybody wants to set up their very own site, whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or commercial purposes. The shared web hosting industry niche is thriving. Why don't you get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

The majority of the firms provide Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely apposite for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface includes three access levels - root (retained for the host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the web hosting server disk storage space and monthly bandwidth quota restrictions of your web hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS web hosting or dedicated server accounts

The majority of the web hosting providers providing VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not really mind if you use the virtual private web server or the dedicated hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you elect to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have full authority over the whole physical server, the ability to implement any config adjustments you deem relevant and the ability to keep an eye on all the customers hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer similar specifications, but in most cases you cannot make any kernel modifications or changes, which require kernel module rearrangement. The best CP software that enables you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting server or VPS web hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP GUI measures up to your requirements better.

What do you require to become a hosting reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and commence your web hosting business, you demand a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your customers' data is shielded when they pay using your website when ordering a web hosting product. Famous billing systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing software system and even support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers for you, and permit you to sell our web hosting services without the need to purchase anything beforehand yourself. What is more, they permit you to sell all their web hosting products - shared website hosting solutions, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can sell all of these to your clients via a turn-key website template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and entice customers. If that is a little too bold for you, they still deliver shared cPanel web hosting reseller plans, as most companies do, and you can always obtain a private virtual web server or a dedicated hosting web server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bounties offered by their cPanel web hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, an array of web themes and even a free eNom reseller account. We have data centers in four countries - Australia, the States and England. It is an excellent chance for you to expand your web hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you desire?
