Web Hosting Reseller Explanation

The World Wide Web is an integral component of our everyday life. Everyone wishes to set up their own online portal, whether for amusement, for socialization or commercial ends. The shared hosting business is thriving. Why don't you take a share of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the providers deliver Linux-based hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller scheme that companies offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting Control Panel graphical user interface includes three access levels - root (retained for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are restricted by the web server space and web traffic limitations of your web 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 hosting or dedicated server web hosting packages

Most of the hosting distributors providing VPS hosting and dedicated server do not actually mind if you use the VPS or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have complete control over the whole physical server, the possibility to perform any config changes you deem fit and the ability to keep an eye on all the clients hosted on it. The Virtual Private Servers offer similar specs, but in most instances you cannot make any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting CP software that permits you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting server or Virtual Private Server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface matches your desires better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and launch your web hosting business, you need a web site, a billing system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your customers' info is shielded when they pay via your website when buying a hosting product. Well-known billing platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing platform and even support for your clients.

You can offer all of these to your clients via a ready-for-use website template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and lure clients.
