Hosting Reseller Definition

The Internet has become an integral staple in everyone's everyday life. Everybody wants to have their own site, whether for amusement, for socialisation or business purposes. The website hosting industry is blossoming. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the vendors distribute Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller scheme that companies offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP user interface offers three access levels - root (meant for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in most circumstances you are restricted by the web server disk drive storage space and monthly bandwidth limits of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS web hosting or dedicated server hosting accounts

The greater part of the web hosting firms offering VPS web hosting and dedicated web hosting do not really object if you utilize the private virtual server or the dedicated hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you elect to resell web hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting web server, you will have complete authority over the entire physical server, the ability to perform any config changes you deem appropriate and the possibility to keep an eye on all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The Virtual Private Servers offer similar features, but in most instances you cannot make any kernel adjustments or changes, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting CP tool that permits you to sell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting server or VPS hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel software tool fulfills your desires better.

What do you require to be a reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and kick off your reseller web hosting business, you demand a website, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your customers' details are defended when they pay via your web site when ordering a web hosting product. Well-known billing platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a cost-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, an invoicing platform and even support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is unique on the market, since they bill and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to sell our web hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything in advance yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to resell all their hosting services - shared web hosting services, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients using a turn-key web design template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing strategist and tempt clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always order a virtual hosting server or a dedicated server and partition it into web hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bonuses coming with their cPanel hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, an array of site skins and even a free eNom reseller account. We have datacenters in four countries - Australia, the States and England. It is a great chance for you to spread your web hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you desire?
