How Reseller Hosting Operates

The Internet has become a crucial factor in everyone's everyday routine. Everyone wishes to own their own personal site, whether for fun, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared hosting business is blossoming. Why not get a part of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most corporations deliver Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely apt for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that providers provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting Control Panel interface allows 3 levels of access - root (meant for the web host itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in most cases you are bound by the web server hard drive space and monthly traffic quota restrictions of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer virtual private servers or dedicated hosting web server plans

Most of the hosting providers offering virtual private servers and dedicated server do not really object if you use the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you choose to resell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated server, you will have total authority over the entire server, the opportunity to perform any config adjustments you deem necessary and the ability to keep track of all the account owners hosted on it. The VPS hosting servers offer similar features, but in the majority of the instances you cannot perform any kernel modifications or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that allows you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or virtual private hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel interface corresponds to your demands better.

What do you require to become a reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and start your web hosting business, you require a web site, a billing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your customers' data is secure when they make payments via your website when purchasing a web hosting product. Famous billing software systems that you can make use of 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 web site, a billing software platform and even support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they charge and support your clients for you, and allow you to sell our hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything upfront yourself. Moreover, they allow you to sell all their hosting services - shared hosting solutions, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting packages. You can offer all of these to your customers via a turn-key template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you set yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and tempt clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still provide shared cPanel reseller hosting packages, as most companies do, and you can always acquire a VPS or a dedicated web server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The presents coming with their cPanel reseller hosting plans will render your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, an array of web site templates and even a cost-free eNom reseller account.
