What Exactly is Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web is an integral part of our everyday life. Everybody would like to own their own web site, whether for pleasure, for or commercial purposes. The web hosting business is thriving. Why don't you a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the providers provide Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very applicable for both and shared web hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller platform that companies provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel Control Panel software includes levels of access - root (meant for the hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the web storage space and bandwidth restrictions of your hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS hosting plans or dedicated web hosting server accounts

The greater part of the hosts providing VPS hosting plans and dedicated hosting do not actually disapprove if you utilize the VPS web server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will have full authority over the whole server, the opportunity to implement any config modifications you like and the ability to monitor all the hosting account holders hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer similar specifications, but in most cases you cannot make any kernel modifications or changes, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest hosting Control Panel software that permits you to resell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated server or private virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which CP user interface corresponds to your expectations better.

What do you require to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and kick off your hosting business, you require a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to ensure that your customers' data is guarded when they pay using your web site when purchasing a service. Popular invoicing software systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, an invoicing software platform and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they bill and support your clients on your behalf, and permit you to resell our hosting solutions without having to purchase anything in advance yourself. Moreover, they permit you to sell all their hosting services - shared web hosting solutions, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can sell all of these to your customers using a ready-to-use web template. The profit you make is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing tactician and acquire customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still supply shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always acquire a private virtual web server or a dedicated web server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The bonuses included in their cPanel hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier as well - they provide you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a selection of web page layouts and even a free eNom reseller account.
