Web Hosting Reseller Revealed

The World Wide Web has become an indispensable staple in everyone's daily life. Everybody wishes to possess their own site, whether for fun, for socialisation or commercial purposes. The hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not get a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most firms furnish Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very adequate for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller platform that firms offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel Control Panel interface includes 3 levels of access - root (intended for the web hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in most situations you are bound by the web server disk drive storage space and traffic quota limits of your web 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.

Promote VPS services or dedicated server web hosting plans

The bigger part of the hosting suppliers providing VPS services and dedicated server do not really mind if you utilize the virtual private hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell web hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have total authority over the whole machine, the possibility to carry out any config modifications you see fit and the opportunity to keep track of all the hosting account holders hosted on it. The virtual web servers offer similar specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot implement any kernel modifications or changes, which require kernel module rearrangement. The best web hosting Control Panel tool that enables you to resell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated server or virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel graphical user interface measures up to your demands better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and launch your reseller hosting business, you demand a website, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your customers' information is safe when they pay using your web site when purchasing a service. Popular billing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing software system and even support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, since they charge and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our hosting solutions without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to sell all their web hosting products - shared hosting services, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can sell all of these to your customers using a ready-for-use website template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you determine yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and allure customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the reseller hosting companies do, and you can always obtain a VPS hosting server or a dedicated web server and divide it into web hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The extras included in their cPanel web hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a variety of website skins and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account. We have data centers in four countries - Australia, the United States and England. It is an exceptional chance for you to spread your hosting business on three continents. What more could you want?
