What Actually is Hosting Reseller?
The Internet is an integral part of our daily routine. Everyone would like to have their own personal website, whether for pleasure, for socialisation or commercial purposes. The hosting industry is blooming. Why not take a slice of the pie yourself?
What can you offer?
Most companies distribute Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely suited for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller scheme that corporations offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting CP graphical user interface allows three levels of access - root (retained for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in most cases you are restricted by the disk space and bandwidth quota limitations of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.
Resell VPS or dedicated web server packages
The majority of the web hosting firms offering VPS and dedicated server do not actually mind if you utilize the private virtual web server or the dedicated web server to resell hosting accounts. If you elect to sell hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting web server, you will have complete authority over the entire machine, the ability to perform any config modifications you deem appropriate and the opportunity to monitor all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The VPSs offer similar specifications, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or modifications, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best web hosting Control Panel interface that permits you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated or virtual private web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP user interface meets your preferences better.
What do you need to be a reseller?
In order to become a web hosting reseller and start your reseller hosting business, you demand a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make sure that your customers' information is guarded when they make payments via your web site when ordering a web hosting service. Popular invoicing software systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, an invoicing software system and even support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to sell our hosting services without having to buy anything beforehand yourself. In addition, they allow you to sell all their hosting services - shared web hosting solutions, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages. You can offer all of these to your customers using a ready-to-use web template. The profit you make is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and entice clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still offer shared cPanel hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the companies do, and you can always order a virtual private web server or a dedicated web hosting server and split it into web hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bonuses included in their cPanel hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a bouquet of web design skins and even a cost-free eNom reseller account.
