Hosting Reseller Definition

The Internet has become an integral element in everybody's everyday agenda. Everybody wants to possess their very own web portal, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or business purposes. The shared hosting business niche is blossoming. Why don't you get a part of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most firms deliver Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is very applicable for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller scheme that providers offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting CP interface includes 3 access levels - root (intended for the web hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are restricted by the web hosting server disk storage space and web traffic quota limits of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell virtual private servers or dedicated web hosting server plans

The greater part of the web hosting distributors offering virtual private servers and dedicated server do not really object if you use the private virtual hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to resell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web server, you will have complete authority over the whole physical machine, the opportunity to perform any config modifications you see fit and the possibility to keep an eye on all the customers hosted on it. The virtual private hosting servers offer comparable options, but in the majority of the instances you cannot perform any kernel modifications or changes, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting CP user interface that allows you to sell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web server or virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel graphical user interface fits your desires better.

What do you require to become a reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and kick off your reseller web hosting business, you require a web site, an invoicing system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your clients' information is guarded when they make payments via your website when purchasing a product. Famous billing software platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a charge-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing software system and even technical support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, since they bill and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to sell our hosting services without the need to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Additionally, they permit you to resell all their web hosting services - shared website hosting solutions, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients using a turn-key web page template. The profit you earn is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing tactician and find clients. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as most companies do, and you can always obtain a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The extras included in their cPanel hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a selection of templates and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account. We have datacenters in four countries - Australia, the States and the United Kingdom. It is a great chance for you to expand your web hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you ask for?
