What is Reseller Web Hosting?

The World Wide Web is an essential part of everybody's daily agenda. Everybody wants to set up their own website, whether for fun, for socialisation or business purposes. The shared hosting business niche is blossoming. Why don't you get a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most vendors supply Linux-based web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting scheme that corporations offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting Control Panel software tool allows three access levels - root (meant for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the hard drive storage space and bandwidth quota restrictions of your reseller web hosting plan. 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 or dedicated server plans

The greater part of the hosting service providers offering VPS hosting and dedicated hosting do not actually object if you utilize the VPS server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell hosting accounts. If you choose to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated server, you will have full control over the whole server, the ability to carry out any config changes you see fit and the ability to monitor all the hosting account owners hosted on it. The private virtual web servers offer comparable options, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel changes or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best hosting Control Panel interface that allows you to resell web hosting accounts using your dedicated web server or virtual web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP user interface fulfills your taste better.

What do you need to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and start your reseller web hosting business, you demand a web site, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your customers' details are defended when they make payments via your website when buying a web hosting product. Well-known invoicing software systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, an invoicing software platform and even support for your customers. Their reseller web hosting program is unique on the marketplace, as they bill and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell our services without the need to buy anything beforehand yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to sell all their web hosting services - shared hosting services, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use web design template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing tactician and acquire clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still furnish shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always acquire a private virtual server or a dedicated web server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bonuses included in their cPanel reseller web hosting plans will render your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a compilation of design themes and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account. We have datacenter facilities in four countries - Australia, the US and the UK. It is a big opportunity for you to spread your hosting business on three continents. What more could you want?
