Reseller Web Hosting Definition

The World Wide Web has become a key part of everyone's everyday life. Everyone would like to create their very own web portal, whether for fun, for socialisation or commercial purposes. The web hosting business is blooming. Why not take a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the vendors furnish Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is extremely suited for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller web hosting scheme that companies offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting CP GUI includes 3 access levels - root (reserved for the web hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most situations you are bound by the hosting server disk storage space and monthly bandwidth restrictions 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.

Resell VPS hosting services or dedicated web server packages

The majority of the web hosting vendors offering VPS hosting services and dedicated hosting do not actually disapprove if you use the virtual private web server or the dedicated web server to resell web hosting accounts. If you elect to sell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated server, you will have total control over the whole physical machine, the possibility to carry out any config changes you want and the ability to keep track of all the hosting account holders hosted on it. The VPS servers offer similar specs, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel changes or modifications, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The best web hosting Control Panel interface that enables you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated or private virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP interface corresponds to your demands better.

What do you require to be a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and kick off your reseller hosting business, you require a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your clients' information is secure when they pay using your web site when purchasing a hosting product. Well-known billing software systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing software platform and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller web hosting program is without an analogue on the marketplace, as they bill and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell our services without having to buy anything upfront yourself. What is more, they allow you to resell all their web hosting solutions - shared web hosting packages, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients via a ready-for-use design template. The profit you make is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing tactician and get clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still supply shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always acquire a virtual private web server or a dedicated web server and slice it into hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The presents coming with their cPanel reseller web hosting plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they supply you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, an assortment of design templates and even a free eNom reseller account. We have data centers in four countries - Australia, the US and England. It is an excellent chance for you to expand your hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you ask for?
