How Does Reseller Hosting Operate?

The Internet is an indispensable fragment of everybody's everyday agenda. Everybody desires to have their very own site, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or commercial purposes. The web hosting industry niche is blooming. Why don't you get a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most companies supply Linux-based web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely adequate for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel Control Panel software tool offers three access levels - root (reserved for the hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the disk space and monthly bandwidth quota restrictions of your reseller hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS hosting plans or dedicated plans

The greater part of the web hosting vendors offering VPS hosting plans and dedicated hosting do not actually mind if you utilize the private virtual hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have full control over the whole server, the ability to make any configuration modifications you prefer and the possibility to keep an eye on all the customers hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer similar specifications, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or changes, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best Control Panel graphical user interface that allows you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated web hosting server or VPS is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel software tool fits your anticipations better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and establish your reseller hosting business, you need a website, an invoicing system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' information is safe when they make payments using your website when buying a web hosting service. Popular invoicing software platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing platform and even support for your clients. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to resell our web hosting solutions without having to buy anything beforehand yourself. What is more, they permit you to sell all their products - shared web hosting services, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use web design template. The profit you gain is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you assign yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and obtain customers. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always get a VPS web server or a dedicated web hosting server and partition it into hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bounties included in their cPanel reseller hosting packages will render your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a bouquet of design themes and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account.
