Reseller Hosting Description

The World Wide Web has become an indispensable fragment of everyone's daily life. Everyone would like to set up their own web page, whether for pleasure, for socialisation or commercial ends. The shared hosting business niche is blooming. Why not take a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most providers offer Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is very apt for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that corporations offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP GUI includes 3 levels of access - root (intended for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in most circumstances you are bound by the disk drive space and traffic restrictions of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell virtual private servers or dedicated web server solutions

Most of the hosting vendors providing virtual private servers and dedicated server do not really object if you utilize the virtual private hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell web hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web hosting server, you will have full authority over the whole physical server, the ability to carry out any configuration modifications you deem fit and the opportunity to monitor all the account holders hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable features, but in the majority of the cases you cannot implement any kernel changes or modifications, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting CP user interface that allows you to resell website hosting accounts using your dedicated or virtual private web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP graphical user interface befits your taste better.

What do you need to become a hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and begin your reseller web hosting business, you need a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your clients' details are protected when they make payments using your web site when purchasing a web hosting service. Famous invoicing software platforms that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-cost reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, an invoicing system and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the market, as they charge and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our web hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything upfront yourself. Moreover, they allow you to resell all their hosting products - shared web hosting solutions, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can offer all of these to your customers via a turn-key website template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and seduce customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still provide shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always get a virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The presents offered by their cPanel reseller hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a compilation of web page skins and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
