How Reseller Web Hosting Functions

The World Wide Web has become a crucial fragment of everyone's daily life. Everybody wishes to own their own personal website, whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or commercial ends. The hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not get a part of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most vendors distribute Linux-driven web hosting services. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is very apt for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel CP software tool offers 3 access levels - root (intended for the hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in most situations you are bound by the hosting server disk storage space and monthly traffic quota restrictions of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS services or dedicated web server solutions

The bigger part of the web hosts offering VPS services and dedicated server do not actually object if you utilize the virtual private hosting server or the dedicated hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you elect to sell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web hosting server, you will have full control over the entire physical machine, the opportunity to make any config changes you wish and the opportunity to keep track of all the account holders hosted on it. The VPS hosting servers offer similar features, but in most instances you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or modifications, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest CP graphical user interface that enables you to sell website hosting accounts using your dedicated or VPS server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP tool corresponds to your taste better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and establish your reseller web hosting business, you require a web site, a billing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your clients' details are safe when they pay via your web site when ordering a web hosting product. Well-known billing systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-cost reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing software system and even support for your customers. Their reseller web hosting program is without an analogue on the market, as they charge and support your customers for you, and permit you to sell our web hosting solutions without the need to buy anything beforehand yourself. In addition, they permit you to resell all their hosting solutions - shared hosting services, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your customers via a ready-to-use web site template. The profit you earn is basically 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 attract clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always acquire a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated web server and split it into web hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself.
