How Does Reseller Hosting Operate?

The Internet has become an integral part of everyone's daily routine. Everyone would like to have their own web page, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or commercial ends. The shared web hosting business is blossoming. Why not get a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most companies deliver Linux-based hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely apt for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel web hosting CP tool includes three levels of access - root (reserved 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 bound by the hosting server storage space and traffic restrictions of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS web hosting or dedicated servers

The majority of the web hosting service providers providing VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not actually disapprove if you utilize the private virtual web server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to resell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will have complete control over the entire physical machine, the opportunity to carry out any config adjustments you deem fit and the possibility to keep an eye on all the account holders hosted on it. The private virtual servers offer similar options, but in the majority of the instances you cannot make any kernel modifications or adjustments, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The best Control Panel software that enables you to resell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting web server or private virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP meets your desires better.

What do you need to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and begin your reseller hosting business, you demand a web site, an invoicing platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make sure that your clients' information is protected when they make payments using your web site when buying a hosting product. Well-known invoicing platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, an invoicing software platform and even technical support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the market, since they charge and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our hosting services without having to purchase anything in advance yourself. Moreover, they permit you to sell all their hosting products - shared hosting services, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your clients via a ready-for-use web page template. The profit you make is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you settle yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing tactician and entice clients.
