What Does Reseller Hosting Mean?

The World Wide Web has become a key fragment of everybody's daily routine. Everybody wishes to launch their very own web portal, whether for fun, for socialization or business purposes. The shared hosting business niche is flourishing. Why don't you get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the vendors supply Linux-based web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely apt for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP GUI allows 3 levels of access - root (designated for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the cases you are bound by the data space and monthly traffic quota restrictions of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote virtual private servers packages or dedicated hosting plans

The bigger part of the web hosting suppliers providing virtual private servers packages and dedicated server do not really mind if you use the virtual private web server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web hosting server, you will have full authority over the entire physical server, the ability to perform any config changes you deem fit and the possibility to monitor all the account owners hosted on it. The private virtual web servers offer similar specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot perform any kernel changes or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest Control Panel tool that allows you to sell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web server or VPS is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel software tool lives up to your requirements better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and establish your reseller hosting business, you require a website, a billing 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 clients' information is shielded when they make payments via your website when ordering a web hosting product. Well-known invoicing software platforms that you can make use of 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-to-use web site, an invoicing software system and even support for your clients. Their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the market, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to sell our web hosting solutions without the need to buy anything in advance yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to sell all their products - shared web hosting plans, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients via a turn-key web site template. The profit you earn is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing strategist and gain customers. If that is a little too bold for you, they still distribute shared cPanel reseller hosting packages, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always get a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and partition it into web hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bounties offered by their cPanel reseller hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a collection of web design layouts and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
