What is Web Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web is a key fragment of everybody's daily routine. Everybody would like to set up their very own personal web portal, whether for fun, for socialisation or business purposes. The shared hosting business niche is blooming. Why not take a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

The majority of the companies furnish Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely suited for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller platform that corporations provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting CP software offers 3 levels of access - root (designated for the hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are restricted by the web server space and web traffic 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.

Promote VPS hosting or dedicated web hosting servers

Most of the web hosting vendors providing VPS hosting and dedicated hosting do not really object if you use the private virtual web server or the dedicated web server to sell web hosting accounts. If you choose to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting server, you will have complete control over the entire machine, the possibility to implement any configuration changes you want and the opportunity to monitor all the account owners hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer similar features, but in the majority of the instances you cannot perform any kernel modifications or changes, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest web hosting CP interface that permits you to resell website hosting accounts using your dedicated or VPS web hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel GUI satisfies your preferences better.

What do you require to be a hosting reseller?

In order to be a reseller and start your business, you require a web site, an invoicing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' information is shielded when they make payments using your website when ordering a service. Popular invoicing software platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a cost-free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing software platform and even support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, since they bill and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to resell our web hosting services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. What is more, they permit you to sell all their web hosting services - shared web hosting plans, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can sell all of these to your customers via a ready-for-use site template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you set yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and entice clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always get a private virtual server or a dedicated server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The gifts included in their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will make your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a variety of web themes and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. We have data center facilities in 4 countries - Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom. It is an enormous opportunity for you to expand your hosting business on three continents.
