How Reseller Web Hosting Works

The World Wide Web is an indispensable staple in everybody's everyday life. Everyone wishes to launch their own personal web page, whether for amusement, for socialization or commercial ends. The shared web hosting business is thriving. Why not take a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most firms furnish Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very suitable for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting scheme that providers offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP user interface offers 3 access levels - root (meant for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in most circumstances you are restricted by the hosting storage space and monthly traffic restrictions of your reseller web hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS web hosting or dedicated web servers

The majority of the web hosting distributors offering VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not actually disapprove if you utilize the virtual private web hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you elect to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated web server, you will have total authority over the whole physical server, the ability to make any config adjustments you prefer and the ability to monitor all the account holders hosted on it. The VPSs offer similar options, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or modifications, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The best CP graphical user interface that allows you to resell web hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or virtual server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which CP tool corresponds to your anticipations better.

What do you require to become a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and begin your reseller web hosting business, you require a website, an invoicing platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' information is guarded when they make payments using your web site when ordering a web hosting service. Popular billing software systems that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a charge-free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing system and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller web hosting program is unique on the marketplace, as they charge and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to resell our web hosting services without the need to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Additionally, they permit you to resell all their web hosting products - shared web hosting solutions, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your clients via a ready-for-use design template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and earn clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still offer shared cPanel reseller web hosting packages, as most reseller hosting companies do, and you can always get a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and divide it into web hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The extras included in their cPanel reseller web hosting packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a set of design skins and even a charge-free eNom reseller account.
