What Precisely is Hosting Reseller?

The Internet is an indispensable component of our everyday life. Everyone would like to own their own personal website, whether for pleasure, for or commercial purposes. The web hosting industry is flourishing. Why don't you take a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the vendors distribute Linux-based web hosting . Linux is a multitasking , which is extremely applicable for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller platform that corporations offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP graphical user interface allows three levels of access - root (reserved for the web host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the cases you are bound by the disk drive space and bandwidth quota limits of your 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.

Offer VPS web hosting or dedicated web hosting solutions

The bigger part of the web hosting providers offering VPS web hosting and dedicated web hosting do not actually object if you utilize the VPS web server or the dedicated hosting server to sell web hosting accounts. If you elect to resell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting web server, you will have full control over the whole server, the opportunity to make any config adjustments you like and the ability to keep track of all the account holders hosted on it. The virtual servers offer comparable features, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel changes or changes, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best hosting CP software that allows you to resell website hosting accounts using your dedicated server or Virtual Private Server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel software fits your requirements better.

What do you need to become a hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and commence your web hosting business, you need a web site, an invoicing system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make sure that your clients' details are shielded when they pay using your web site when buying a service. Popular billing platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a cost-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing system and even support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to resell our web hosting solutions without the need to buy anything beforehand yourself. In addition, they allow you to sell all their products - shared website hosting packages, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your customers using a ready-for-use web 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 good marketing strategist and get clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still supply shared cPanel hosting reseller packages, as most reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always order a private virtual web server or a dedicated hosting server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself.
