What is Hosting Reseller?

The Internet has become a vital part of everyone's daily life. Everyone wishes to set up their very own web site, whether for entertainment, for socialization or business ends. The shared hosting business is blossoming. Why don't you take a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most providers supply Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is extremely apposite for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller platform that firms offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting Control Panel tool includes three access levels - root (intended for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the disk drive space and web traffic restrictions of your hosting reseller 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 plans or dedicated web hosting plans

The bigger part of the hosting corporations providing virtual private servers plans and dedicated server do not actually object if you utilize the VPS web server or the dedicated hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you opt to resell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting server, you will have total authority over the whole physical server, the ability to perform any configuration adjustments you prefer and the possibility to keep track of all the clients hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in most instances you cannot perform any kernel changes or modifications, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best CP software that allows you to sell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated web hosting server or VPS is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel user interface fits your needs better.

What do you need to be a hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and launch your business, you require a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your clients' information is shielded when they pay via your website when purchasing a web hosting product. Well-known invoicing software platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a cost-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing software platform and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they charge and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to resell our web hosting services without the need to buy anything upfront yourself. What is more, they allow you to resell all their hosting products - shared website hosting packages, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can sell all of these to your customers using a turn-key web site template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and get clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still offer shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always get a virtual hosting server or a dedicated server and partition it into web hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier too - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, an array of web themes and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account.
