What In Fact is Reseller Hosting?

The World Wide Web has become an integral component of everyone's everyday routine. Everybody desires to establish their very own personal site, whether for fun, for socialisation or business ends. The shared hosting industry niche is blossoming. Why don't you take a share of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

The majority of the corporations supply Linux-based hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is very adequate for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that corporations provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP GUI includes 3 access levels - root (designated for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in most circumstances you are bound by the hard drive storage space and web traffic limits of your reseller hosting plan. 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 accounts

The greater part of the web hosting service providers offering virtual private servers and dedicated server do not actually object if you use the VPS or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you elect to resell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting server, you will have complete authority over the whole machine, the possibility to implement any config modifications you prefer and the ability to keep track of all the account holders hosted on it. The virtual hosting servers offer comparable options, but in the majority of the instances you cannot carry out any kernel changes or changes, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest web hosting CP software that enables you to resell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or virtual web server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP software measures up to your anticipations better.

What do you require to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and kick off your business, you require a web site, a billing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your customers' data is guarded when they pay using your website when ordering a product. Popular billing platforms that you can use 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-for-use web site, an invoicing software platform and even support for your clients. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to resell our services without the need to purchase anything in advance yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to sell all their hosting products - shared website hosting packages, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting solutions. You can sell all of these to your clients using a turn-key web page template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing tactician and get customers. 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 providers do, and you can always acquire a virtual private web hosting server or a dedicated web server and partition it into hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The extras coming with their cPanel reseller hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a collection of web site themes and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. We have datacenters in four countries - Australia, the United States of America and Great Britain. It is a unique opportunity for you to expand your web hosting business on 3 continents.
