What Actually is Reseller Web Hosting?

The World Wide Web an integral everyone's daily life. Everybody would like to own their own , whether for fun, for or commercial ends. The hosting business is blossoming. Why don't you a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

companies offer web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely suited for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting platform that vendors provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting CP graphical user interface allows three levels of access - root (retained for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in most situations you are bound by the web hosting server hard drive storage space and traffic limits of your reseller web 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 plans or dedicated accounts

The bigger part of the hosts providing VPS plans and dedicated server do not actually disapprove if you utilize the private virtual web server or the dedicated server to sell website hosting accounts. If you elect to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated web server, you will have full control over the entire machine, the opportunity to make any configuration changes you see fit and the possibility to keep track of all the hosting account holders hosted on it. The Virtual Private Servers offer similar specifications, but in most instances you cannot implement any kernel changes or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest web hosting Control Panel software that permits you to resell web hosting accounts using your dedicated or virtual web hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which CP tool befits your requirements better.

What do you require to be a hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and kick off your web hosting business, you demand a website, a billing platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your clients' data is defended when they pay via your website when buying a service. Popular invoicing software systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-charge reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, an invoicing software system and even support for your clients. Their reseller web hosting program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they charge and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to sell our web hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything in advance yourself. Furthermore, they permit you to resell all their hosting solutions - shared web hosting packages, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use website template. The profit you earn is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing strategist and find clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as most reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always get a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The extras coming with their cPanel reseller web hosting packages will render your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, an array of web design templates and even a free eNom reseller account.
