What Indeed is Hosting Reseller?

The Internet is a key component of everyone's daily agenda. Everyone wants to own their very own web portal, whether for pleasure, for socialisation or commercial purposes. The hosting business is thriving. Why don't you get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most providers offer Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very apposite for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller scheme that corporations provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel Control Panel tool offers 3 access levels - root (designated for the hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the instances you are restricted by the web server hard drive storage space and monthly traffic limitations 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 packages or dedicated web server accounts

The bigger part of the web hosting providers providing VPS packages and dedicated package do not really disapprove if you use the private virtual web server or the dedicated hosting server to resell web hosting accounts. If you opt to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated web hosting server, you will have full control over the whole physical machine, the ability to implement any configuration modifications you deem necessary and the opportunity to keep track of all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer comparable features, but in most instances you cannot perform any kernel modifications or changes, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best hosting CP GUI that permits you to sell web hosting accounts using your dedicated hosting server or VPS is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which CP user interface matches your preferences better.

What do you require to be a hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and kick off your hosting business, you need a web site, a billing system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make certain that your customers' details are defended when they make payments using your web site when purchasing a hosting product. Popular invoicing platforms that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing software platform and even support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, as they bill and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to resell our hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Besides, they permit you to sell all their hosting services - shared hosting services, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your customers using a ready-for-use web template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you assign yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing tactician and earn clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always get a virtual server or a dedicated hosting server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a variety of layouts and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account.
