How Does Web Hosting Reseller Work?

The World Wide Web has become a key component of everybody's everyday routine. Everyone wants to have their very own web portal, whether for entertainment, for socialisation or commercial ends. The web hosting industry is thriving. Why don't you take a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most vendors furnish Linux-based hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is very applicable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting Control Panel GUI offers 3 access levels - root (meant for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in most cases you are restricted by the disk drive storage space and monthly bandwidth quota limits of your web hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS hosting plans or dedicated web hosting packages

The bigger part of the hosting corporations offering VPS hosting plans and dedicated hosting do not really disapprove if you use the virtual hosting server or the dedicated server to sell website hosting accounts. If you opt to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have full authority over the entire machine, the possibility to make any config adjustments you prefer and the ability to keep track of all the hosting account holders hosted on it. The virtual web servers offer similar options, but in most cases you cannot implement any kernel changes or adjustments, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest web hosting Control Panel software that enables you to sell website hosting accounts using your dedicated or private virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel GUI suits your demands better.

What do you require to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and establish your hosting business, you demand a website, an invoicing system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to ensure that your clients' data is guarded when they pay via your web site when buying a product. Famous invoicing platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing platform and even support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the market, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our web hosting services without having to purchase anything in advance yourself. What is more, they allow you to sell all their hosting products - shared website hosting plans, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can offer all of these to your customers via a turn-key web site template. The profit you earn is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix 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 web hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always order a virtual web hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bounties offered by their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they supply you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, an array of site themes and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account. We have data center facilities in four countries - Australia, the States and the United Kingdom. It is a fantastic chance for you to spread your hosting business on three continents.
