What is Hosting Reseller?

The Internet is a vital factor in our everyday life. Everyone desires to have their very own web page, whether for entertainment, for socialisation or business ends. The hosting business is flourishing. Why not take a part of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most corporations furnish Linux-based hosting services. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller platform that companies provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel CP user interface offers three access levels - root (retained for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are restricted by the hosting space and bandwidth quota restrictions of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS packages or dedicated hosting servers

The bigger part of the hosting service providers providing VPS packages and dedicated package do not actually object if you use the virtual private web server or the dedicated server to resell website hosting accounts. If you choose to sell website hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting web server, you will have full authority over the entire physical machine, the ability to make any configuration modifications you see fit and the ability to monitor all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The private virtual web servers offer similar options, but in most instances you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or changes, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest hosting CP tool that permits you to resell website hosting accounts using your dedicated web server or VPS is, once again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP software befits your anticipations better.

What do you need to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and begin your hosting business, you require a web site, a billing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' data is guarded when they pay via your website when ordering a service. Well-known billing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a charge-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing system and even technical support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything in advance yourself. Besides, they permit you to sell all their services - shared website hosting plans, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can sell all of these to your clients via a ready-to-use website template. The profit you make is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing tactician and tempt clients. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always acquire a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated hosting web server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The bounties included in their cPanel hosting reseller plans will make your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a compilation of layouts and even a cost-free eNom reseller account.
