Hosting Reseller Explanation

The Internet has become an integral component of everyone's daily life. Everyone would like to launch their own personal web page, whether for entertainment, for socialization or business purposes. The shared web hosting industry niche is thriving. Why not get a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

The majority of the firms supply Linux-based hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely apposite for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller scheme that providers provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting Control Panel user interface allows three access levels - root (reserved for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in most cases you are restricted by the web server disk storage space and bandwidth limitations of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS web hosting or dedicated server web hosting packages

The bigger part of the web hosting providers providing VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not actually mind if you use the VPS web server or the dedicated web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you elect to resell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting web server, you will have full control over the whole physical server, the possibility to perform any configuration modifications you see fit and the possibility to keep an eye on all the users hosted on it. The virtual web hosting servers offer comparable options, but in most instances you cannot implement any kernel changes or changes, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting CP software that permits you to sell hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated or virtual private hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel software fulfills your desires better.

What do you require to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and kick off your business, you require a website, a billing platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your clients' info is shielded when they make payments using your website when purchasing a web hosting service. Popular billing platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a charge-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing platform and even support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, as they bill and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to sell our hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything upfront yourself. Furthermore, they permit you to resell all their hosting services - shared web hosting packages, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your customers via a ready-for-use website template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and earn customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the reseller hosting companies do, and you can always order a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated server and split it into web hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bonuses offered by their cPanel hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, an array of themes and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account. We have data center facilities in four countries - Australia, the USA and England. It is an exceptional chance for you to spread your web hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you ask for?
