What Does Reseller Web Hosting Mean?

The Internet has become an integral fragment of everybody's everyday routine. Everyone wants to build their very own web page, whether for amusement, for socialization or business ends. The shared hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most providers furnish Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is very suited for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller web hosting platform that vendors offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting CP software includes 3 access levels - root (meant for the hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in most circumstances you are restricted by the web server disk storage space and bandwidth quota limits of your reseller web hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell virtual private servers plans or dedicated solutions

The greater part of the hosts providing virtual private servers plans and dedicated server do not really mind if you utilize the virtual server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell hosting accounts. If you decide to resell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated server, you will have complete authority over the whole physical machine, the possibility to carry out any configuration adjustments you deem appropriate and the opportunity to keep track of all the hosting account holders hosted on it. The virtual web hosting servers offer comparable specs, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or adjustments, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best CP GUI that enables you to resell website hosting accounts using your dedicated hosting server or VPS web hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel user interface fulfills your expectations better.

What do you require to be a hosting reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and commence your reseller hosting business, you demand a web site, a billing system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make certain that your clients' data is defended when they pay using your website when ordering a hosting product. Popular invoicing software platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing software system and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller web hosting program is unique on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to sell our hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything upfront yourself. Besides, they allow you to sell all their web hosting products - shared hosting plans, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can sell all of these to your customers using a turn-key web page template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing tactician and tempt clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always get a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself.
