Web Hosting Reseller Definition

The World Wide Web has become a key element in everybody's daily agenda. Everyone would like to own their own personal online portal, whether for amusement, for socialisation or business purposes. The web hosting industry is flourishing. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the companies provide Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is very adequate for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller platform that corporations provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting Control Panel user interface offers 3 access levels - root (retained for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are bound by the web hosting server storage space and traffic quota restrictions of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS hosting packages or dedicated server solutions

Most of the hosting corporations providing VPS hosting packages and dedicated hosting do not actually mind if you use the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you decide to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have full control over the whole server, the ability to carry out any configuration changes you wish and the opportunity to monitor all the account owners hosted on it. The virtual web hosting servers offer comparable specs, but in the majority of the instances you cannot make any kernel changes or changes, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best hosting Control Panel software that permits you to sell hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting web server or VPS is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which user interface suits your requirements better.

What do you need to become a reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and start your business, you demand a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make certain that your clients' info is secure when they make payments via your web site when ordering a hosting product. Popular billing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a charge-free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing software system and even technical support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to resell our web hosting services without having to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to sell all their hosting services - shared hosting solutions, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can sell all of these to your customers via a ready-to-use design template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you settle yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and gain clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel web hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always get a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated hosting server and split it into web hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The bonuses included in their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will make your reseller life easier as well - they supply you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a variety of design skins and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account.
