What Does Hosting Reseller Signify?

The World Wide Web is a crucial part of our daily life. Everybody wants to build their very own online portal, whether for entertainment, for socialisation or commercial purposes. The web hosting industry is flourishing. Why don't you get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most vendors distribute Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely apposite for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller scheme that providers offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface offers three levels of access - root (reserved for the host itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are restricted by the web server storage space and web traffic limits of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS hosting plans or dedicated web hosting solutions

The majority of the web hosting suppliers offering VPS hosting plans and dedicated hosting do not actually mind if you utilize the private virtual web hosting server or the dedicated web server to sell hosting accounts. If you decide to resell hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will have complete control over the entire server, the ability to carry out any config adjustments you deem necessary and the opportunity to keep track of all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The private virtual hosting servers offer similar features, but in most instances you cannot make any kernel changes or changes, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest Control Panel software that enables you to resell web hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting server or virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel tool fits your expectations better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and begin your business, you require a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your customers' information is protected when they pay using your web site when buying a hosting service. Well-known billing systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a charge-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing platform and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our web hosting solutions without having to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to sell all their products - shared website hosting solutions, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages. You can offer all of these to your customers via a turn-key web 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 tactician and earn clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still furnish shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as most companies do, and you can always obtain a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and partition it into hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The extras included in their cPanel hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier as well - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a bouquet of themes and even a cost-free eNom reseller account.
