How Reseller Hosting Works?

The Internet is a crucial factor in everyone's everyday routine. Everybody would like to possess their very own web site, whether for entertainment, for socialization or business purposes. The hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not take a chunk of the pie yourself?

How did it all commence?

This is how my intention to become a web hosting reseller was conceived. Perchance it was the very same idea that also impelled the earliest reseller hosting companies to deliver such kind of web hosting services - to expand their client base and to give other individuals an opportunity to gain some cash.

What can you resell?

The majority of the firms distribute Linux-based hosting services. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely adequate for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that providers provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting CP GUI allows 3 access levels - root (designated for the web hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in most instances you are restricted by the web hosting server disk drive storage space and traffic limitations of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote Virtual Private Server hosting plans or dedicated hosting packages

The greater part of the web hosting firms offering private virtual web server hosting solutions and dedicated server solutions do not really mind if you utilize the VPS web hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell web site hosting accounts. If you opt to sell web site hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting server, you will have full authority over the entire machine, the ability to implement any config changes you deem appropriate and the opportunity to monitor all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The virtual web servers offer similar specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot implement any kernel adjustments or changes, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best hosting CP tool that allows you to sell web hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or virtual private web server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which CP graphical user interface corresponds to your demands better.

What do you need to become a hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and commence your web hosting business, you require a web site, an invoicing system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make certain that your clients' info is safe when they pay using your web site when buying a service. Well-known billing systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, however, one reseller web hosting services provider I've stumbled upon that offers you a charge-free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing software system and even support for your customers. The company is ResellersPanel and their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they charge and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to sell their hosting solutions without having to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Moreover, they permit you to sell all their products - shared web hosting services, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can offer all of these to your customers using a ready-for-use design template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you settle yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and tempt clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still furnish shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always order a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated server and partition it into web hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a bunch of web site skins and even a free eNom reseller account. I have been working with them for a while now and I am very gratified, especially since they introduced datacenter facilities in 4 countries for their shared website hosting packages - Australia, the United States, Sweden and the UK. It was an exceptional opportunity to expand my web hosting business further, on 3 continents. What more could I desire?
