Reseller Hosting Unveiled

The World Wide Web has become an essential element in everyone's daily routine. Everybody would like to possess their own personal web site, whether for fun, for socialization or business ends. The web hosting business is blooming. Why don't you take a part of the pie yourself?

How did it all commence?

This is how my aspiration to become a hosting reseller evolved. Maybe it was the same thought that also encouraged the first pioneering reseller hosting vendors to deliver such kind of web hosting solutions - to enlarge their customer base and to offer other people an opportunity to gain some money.

What can you resell?

Most vendors distribute Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very applicable for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel Control Panel graphical user interface offers three access levels - root (intended for the host itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most cases you are restricted by the hard drive storage space and web traffic quota limitations of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell virtual server hosting plans or dedicated server web hosting plans

The majority of the web hosting service providers offering VPS plans and dedicated server web hosting accounts do not really mind if you use the VPS hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell web site hosting accounts. If you choose to resell web hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have total control over the whole physical machine, the opportunity to carry out any configuration modifications you prefer and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the users hosted on it. The virtual private hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or modifications, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The finest CP user interface that permits you to resell hosting accounts using your dedicated web server or private virtual server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel tool fits your preferences better.

What do you require to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and start your reseller hosting business, you need a web site, a billing software 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 sure that your clients' info is defended when they pay via your web site when buying a web hosting product. Popular invoicing software systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, though, one reseller hosting solutions provider I've discovered that gives you a cost-free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing system and even technical support for your customers. The reseller web hosting services provider is ResellersPanel and their hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell their web hosting services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. In addition, they permit you to resell all their web hosting services - shared website hosting services, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services. You can sell all of these to your clients using a ready-to-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 decent marketing strategist and seduce clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still furnish shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The presents included in their cPanel reseller hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they provide you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a compilation of website themes and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account. I have been working with them for a while now and I am quite happy, especially since they introduced data centers in 4 countries for their shared web site hosting plans - Australia, the US, Sweden and England. It was a terrific opportunity to expand my hosting business further, on three continents. What more could I desire?
