Reseller Hosting Explanation

The World Wide Web is an essential part of our daily routine. Everyone wants to build their very own site, whether for pleasure, for socialization or business ends. The shared hosting industry is blossoming. Why don't you take a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most firms provide Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very apt for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that providers provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting CP software tool offers three levels of access - root (intended for the host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the cases you are restricted by the hosting storage space and bandwidth 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.

Resell virtual private servers or dedicated web hosting packages

The greater part of the web hosting providers providing virtual private servers and dedicated server do not really object if you utilize the virtual web server or the dedicated hosting web server to resell web hosting accounts. If you elect to resell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated server, you will have full authority over the whole physical server, the ability to make any config adjustments you desire and the ability to keep an eye on all the account owners hosted on it. The private virtual web hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in most instances you cannot perform any kernel adjustments or modifications, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best CP tool that enables you to resell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or Virtual Private Server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which CP graphical user interface corresponds to your desires better.

What do you need to be a hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and kick off your hosting business, you require a web site, an invoicing platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your customers' info is shielded when they make payments using your web site when buying a web hosting product. Well-known invoicing systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing software platform and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they bill and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to resell our web hosting services without the need to purchase anything in advance yourself. Moreover, they allow you to sell all their hosting products - shared hosting services, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use site template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and acquire clients.
