What Exactly is Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web has become a crucial staple in our daily life. Everyone wants to create their own personal web portal, whether for entertainment, for socialization or commercial ends. The web hosting industry niche is flourishing. Why not get a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most providers furnish Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is extremely adequate for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller scheme that companies provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting CP tool includes three access levels - root (intended for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the web hosting server disk drive storage space and monthly traffic quota limitations of your hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS hosting plans or dedicated hosting web server accounts

The majority of the hosting providers providing VPS hosting plans and dedicated hosting do not really object if you use the virtual private web server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell web hosting accounts. If you decide to resell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting web server, you will have complete control over the entire physical machine, the possibility to carry out any configuration adjustments you prefer and the opportunity to keep track of all the customers hosted on it. The private virtual hosting servers offer similar options, but in the majority of the instances you cannot make any kernel changes or modifications, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best hosting Control Panel tool that permits you to sell hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated server or virtual private web server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel graphical user interface satisfies your anticipations better.

What do you need to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and launch your reseller hosting business, you demand a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your customers' info is guarded when they pay via your web site when purchasing a hosting service. Well-known invoicing platforms that you can make use of 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-to-use website, an invoicing software platform and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they charge and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell our web hosting services without the need to buy anything beforehand yourself. Besides, they allow you to sell all their services - shared web hosting solutions, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting packages. You can sell all of these to your clients via a turn-key website template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you settle yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and gain customers. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still provide shared cPanel hosting reseller packages, as most reseller hosting companies do, and you can always get a VPS or a dedicated hosting server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The bonuses offered by their cPanel hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a set of design templates and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
