What Does Reseller Hosting Represent?

The Internet is a vital component of everyone's everyday life. Everybody would like to set up their very own online portal, whether for pleasure, for socialisation or commercial ends. The hosting industry niche is blooming. Why not get a slice of the pie yourself?

How did it all begin?

This is how my aspiration to be a web hosting reseller evolved. Perhaps it was the same thought that also stimulated the earliest pioneering reseller web hosting companies to offer such type of web hosting services - to multiply their customer base and to give other people an opportunity to make some profit.

What can you sell?

The majority of the corporations provide Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very apposite for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that companies provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting CP software allows 3 access levels - root (meant for the web hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in most cases you are bound by the web hosting server hard drive space and web traffic quota limitations of your web 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.

Offer private virtual web server hosting plans or dedicated web hosting plans

The majority of the web hosting distributors providing virtual private web server solutions and dedicated hosting web server plans do not really mind if you use the VPS web hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell hosting accounts. If you decide to resell web site hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting server, you will exert complete authority over the whole machine, the ability to make any config modifications you wish and the possibility to keep track of all the customers hosted on it. The Virtual Private Servers offer similar features, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The finest CP software that allows you to sell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web server or VPS web server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel user interface satisfies your desires better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and commence your reseller web hosting business, you require a website, a billing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your customers' details are safe when they pay via your web site when ordering a web hosting service. Well-known billing platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, though, one reseller hosting provider I've chanced on that offers you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, an invoicing software system and even technical support for your customers. The reseller hosting company is ResellersPanel.com and their reseller hosting program is unique on the marketplace, as they bill and support your customers for you, and permit you to resell their web hosting solutions without having to buy anything in advance yourself. In addition, they allow you to resell all their hosting services - shared hosting services, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your customers using a ready-to-use web page template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you settle yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and gain clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still deliver shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the companies do, and you can always order a VPS hosting server or a dedicated server and divide it into web hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a selection of web site templates and even a free eNom reseller account. I have been with them for a while now and I am pretty happy, even more so since they introduced datacenter facilities in four countries for their shared plans - Australia, America, Sweden and the United Kingdom. It was a fantastic chance to expand my hosting business further, on three continents. What more could I want?
