How Does Hosting Reseller Work?

The Internet is a key fragment of everyone's daily agenda. Everyone wishes to build their own personal website, whether for fun, for socialization or business purposes. The web hosting industry niche is flourishing. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most companies offer Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very apposite for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller platform that providers offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting CP tool offers three levels of access - root (meant for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the web server disk drive space and monthly traffic limitations of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS hosting packages or dedicated web servers

The majority of the web hosting distributors providing VPS hosting packages and dedicated hosting do not actually disapprove if you use the virtual private web server or the dedicated hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you opt to sell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will have full control over the entire physical server, the opportunity to make any config changes you wish and the ability to keep track of all the account owners hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable features, but in the majority of the cases you cannot perform any kernel modifications or modifications, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting Control Panel user interface that allows you to sell website hosting accounts using your dedicated web hosting server or private virtual web hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel user interface fulfills your desires better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and commence your reseller web hosting business, you need a web site, a billing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make sure that your customers' details are safe when they make payments using your web site when buying a web hosting product. Famous invoicing software systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a charge-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, an invoicing software system and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to sell our web hosting solutions without having to buy anything in advance yourself. Additionally, they allow you to sell all their services - shared web hosting services, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can sell all of these to your clients via a turn-key website template. The profit you earn is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and gain clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always get a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bounties offered by their cPanel hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they supply you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a bunch of design themes and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account. We have data centers in four countries - Australia, the USA and Britain. It is a unique opportunity for you to expand your web hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you desire?
