Definition of Reseller Hosting

The Internet is an essential staple in our everyday life. Everyone would like to build their own web page, whether for amusement, for socialisation or business purposes. The website hosting business niche is blooming. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the firms supply Linux-powered web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is very apt for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that providers provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting Control Panel GUI offers three levels of access - root (designated for the web hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the hosting server hard drive space and monthly traffic restrictions 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 VPS web hosting or dedicated hosting accounts

The greater part of the hosting providers providing VPS web hosting and dedicated web hosting do not really disapprove if you use the VPS web hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell web hosting accounts. If you decide to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated web hosting server, you will have total control over the entire machine, the possibility to perform any config modifications you choose and the ability to keep track of all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual web hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in most instances you cannot perform any kernel changes or changes, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting Control Panel interface that permits you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting web server or private virtual server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP software tool suits your needs better.

What do you require to be a reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and kick off your reseller hosting business, you require a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make sure that your customers' information is safe when they make payments using your web site when purchasing a hosting product. Well-known billing systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing system and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the market, since they bill and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to sell our hosting solutions without having to purchase anything in advance yourself. Besides, they permit you to sell all their hosting products - shared website hosting plans, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can sell all of these to your customers using a turn-key web site template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you determine yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and earn clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still supply shared cPanel reseller hosting packages, as the majority of the reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always order a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and split it into hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The gifts offered by their cPanel reseller hosting packages will render your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a selection of site layouts and even a cost-free eNom reseller account.
