Web Hosting Reseller Unmasked

The World Wide Web is a crucial factor in everybody's everyday routine. Everyone wants to own their own personal web page, whether for amusement, for socialization or business purposes. The hosting industry niche is blossoming. Why not take a part of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most corporations provide Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is very applicable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller platform that providers offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel CP user interface allows 3 access levels - root (meant for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are restricted by the server hard disk space and traffic restrictions of your web 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.

Sell VPS packages or dedicated server accounts

The majority of the hosting distributors providing VPS packages and dedicated package do not really mind if you use the private virtual hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell hosting accounts. If you opt to sell hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting web server, you will have full authority over the entire physical server, the opportunity to carry out any config adjustments you want and the ability to keep track of all the hosting account owners hosted on it. The private virtual web hosting servers offer comparable options, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or modifications, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting CP graphical user interface that allows you to resell website hosting accounts using your dedicated web server or private virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP software lives up to your needs better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and start your reseller web hosting business, you need a web site, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make certain that your customers' details are secure when they make payments using your web site when purchasing a service. Well-known billing software systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing system and even technical support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, as they bill and support your customers for you, and permit you to resell our hosting services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. What is more, they allow you to resell all their hosting products - shared hosting plans, 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 make is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you set yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing tactician and find customers. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still distribute shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always acquire a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated hosting web server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The presents offered by their cPanel web hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a set of themes and even a free-of-cost eNom reseller account.
