What Does Reseller Web Hosting Mean?

The Internet is an essential part of everyone's everyday agenda. Everyone wishes to set up their very own personal online portal, whether for amusement, for socialization or business purposes. The website hosting industry niche is blossoming. Why don't you get a part of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the firms supply Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel Control Panel GUI offers three access levels - root (reserved for the host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the instances you are restricted by the web hosting server disk storage space and traffic quota restrictions of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS web hosting or dedicated web server hosting accounts

The greater part of the hosting service providers offering VPS web hosting and dedicated web hosting do not really object if you use the private virtual web server or the dedicated hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to resell web hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have total authority over the whole physical server, the possibility to implement any configuration modifications you deem necessary and the possibility to keep track of all the hosting account holders hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer comparable options, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel changes or changes, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best Control Panel software that permits you to resell web hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or Virtual Private Server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP graphical user interface satisfies your anticipations better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and start your reseller web hosting business, you require a website, an invoicing platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your customers' information is secure when they pay using your website when buying a web hosting service. Popular billing software platforms that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing platform 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 hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Besides, they allow you to sell all their web hosting services - shared web hosting packages, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can sell all of these to your customers using a ready-to-use design template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing tactician and win clients. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as most reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always acquire a VPS or a dedicated web server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The bounties included in their cPanel reseller web hosting packages will render your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, an array of web page themes and even a free eNom reseller account.
