How Reseller Hosting Functions

The World Wide Web is a vital component of everyone's daily agenda. Everybody would like to have their very own site, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or commercial ends. The web hosting industry niche is blossoming. Why don't you get a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most firms furnish Linux-powered hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface offers 3 access levels - root (meant for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most cases you are bound by the disk space and web traffic quota limits 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 plans or dedicated accounts

The majority of the web hosting providers offering VPS hosting plans and dedicated hosting do not actually mind if you utilize the virtual private web server or the dedicated server to sell web hosting accounts. If you elect to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web hosting server, you will have total control over the whole machine, the ability to perform any config modifications you deem relevant and the possibility to keep an eye on all the account owners hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer comparable features, but in most instances you cannot make any kernel modifications or modifications, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting Control Panel GUI that allows you to resell web hosting accounts using your dedicated web server or VPS web server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP user interface matches your anticipations better.

What do you need to become a hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and start your reseller hosting business, you demand a website, a billing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your clients' information is guarded when they make payments using your web site when purchasing a web hosting product. Popular billing software platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing system and even support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the market, since they charge and support your clients for you, and permit you to sell our hosting solutions without the need to buy anything in advance yourself. Besides, they permit you to sell all their services - shared hosting packages, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting packages. You can sell all of these to your customers via a ready-to-use website template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing strategist and obtain clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always get a virtual server or a dedicated server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel reseller hosting packages will make your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a selection of design skins and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account. We have data centers in four countries - Australia, the States and England. It is a big opportunity for you to spread your hosting business on three continents. What more could you wish for?
