Reseller Hosting Definition

The World Wide Web an integral everyone's daily life. Everybody wishes to own their own , whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or commercial ends. The web hosting business is blossoming. Why get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

vendors provide hosting services. Linux is a Operating System, which is very adequate for both and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting scheme that providers offer is the cPanel one, the cPanel hosting CP graphical user interface allows three access levels - root (meant for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in most cases you are restricted by the data storage space and monthly bandwidth quota limitations of your reseller hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS packages or dedicated server hosting solutions

Most of the web hosts offering VPS packages and dedicated hosting do not actually disapprove if you use the private virtual web hosting server or the dedicated web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web server, you will have total control over the whole server, the ability to make any configuration changes you wish and the possibility to monitor all the users hosted on it. The virtual private hosting servers offer similar specs, but in the majority of the instances you cannot make any kernel changes or adjustments, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The finest Control Panel software that allows you to sell web hosting accounts using your dedicated or VPS hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel interface fulfills your requirements better.

What do you require to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and launch your web hosting business, you need a web site, a billing 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 clients' details are defended when they pay via your website when ordering a product. Well-known invoicing software platforms that you can use 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, a billing software platform and even technical support for your clients.

Besides, they allow you to sell all their hosting products - shared web hosting packages, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can offer all of these to your customers via a ready-to-use web design template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you assign yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and entice clients.
