Reseller Web Hosting Definition

The World Wide Web has become an indispensable fragment of our daily agenda. Everyone wishes to have their own personal web page, whether for fun, for socialization or business purposes. The web hosting business niche is blooming. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the corporations provide Linux-powered web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very applicable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting scheme that corporations provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting Control Panel software tool allows 3 access levels - root (meant for the web host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the cases you are bound by the web server hard disk storage space and bandwidth quota restrictions of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS hosting packages or dedicated solutions

Most of the hosting suppliers providing VPS hosting packages and dedicated hosting do not actually object if you use the private virtual web server or the dedicated web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you opt to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated web server, you will have total authority over the entire server, the opportunity to carry out any configuration adjustments you like and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the customers hosted on it. The virtual web servers offer similar specs, but in most instances you cannot carry out any kernel changes or changes, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best CP interface that permits you to resell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or private virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel software tool befits your needs better.

What do you require to be a reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and launch your hosting business, you need a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with an online 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 safe when they make payments using your web site when ordering a service. Famous invoicing platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing platform and even support for your clients. Their reseller web hosting program is unique on the marketplace, since they bill and support your clients for you, and permit you to sell our hosting services without having to purchase anything beforehand yourself. What is more, they permit you to sell all their hosting products - shared web hosting services, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your customers via a ready-for-use site template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and win clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as the majority of the companies do, and you can always acquire a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated web hosting server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The extras included in their cPanel reseller web hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they supply you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a variety of design skins and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. We have datacenters in 4 countries - Australia, the USA and the United Kingdom. It is a big opportunity for you to spread your hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you desire?
