Reseller Hosting Clarified
The World Wide Web is an essential component of our daily routine. Everyone desires to establish their own web page, whether for amusement, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared web hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not take a share of the pie yourself?
What can you offer?
Most vendors supply Linux-powered web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is very adequate for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that firms provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel CP interface offers 3 access levels - root (meant for the web host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most circumstances you are bound by the web server disk drive space and bandwidth quota restrictions of your reseller hosting 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 web hosting or dedicated hosting web server packages
The bigger part of the web hosting service providers offering VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not actually object if you use the virtual private web hosting server or the dedicated web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you opt to sell website hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have complete control over the whole physical server, the possibility to implement any configuration adjustments you like and the possibility to keep an eye on all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer similar specifications, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel changes or modifications, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting CP software tool that allows you to sell website hosting accounts using your dedicated hosting web server or VPS hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP software suits your expectations better.
What do you need to become a reseller?
In order to be a hosting reseller and start your reseller hosting business, you require a web site, a billing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make certain that your clients' info is guarded when they pay using your web site when buying a web hosting product. Popular invoicing software systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, an invoicing platform and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and permit you to sell our hosting solutions without the need to buy anything upfront yourself. In addition, they permit you to sell all their web hosting solutions - shared hosting solutions, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can sell all of these to your clients using a ready-to-use template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you determine yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and obtain clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always obtain a virtual private web server or a dedicated server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel reseller hosting plans will make your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a set of site themes and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account. We have data center facilities in four countries - Australia, the States and Britain. It is an immense chance for you to expand your web hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you wish for?
