Hosting Reseller Explanation

The World Wide Web is a key component of everybody's daily routine. Everyone would like to have their own personal web page, whether for amusement, for socialization or business purposes. The web hosting industry is flourishing. Why not take a share of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most companies supply Linux-powered web hosting services. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller platform that vendors offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting CP user interface includes 3 levels of access - root (reserved for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the cases you are restricted by the data storage space and monthly bandwidth quota limits of your 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.

Resell VPS hosting packages or dedicated hosting servers

Most of the hosting distributors offering VPS hosting packages and dedicated hosting do not really mind if you utilize the virtual private web server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you choose to sell website hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have complete authority over the whole physical server, the opportunity to carry out any configuration adjustments you wish and the opportunity to keep track of all the account holders hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable options, but in the majority of the cases you cannot perform any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest hosting CP interface that allows you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting web server or VPS web server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which CP interface fulfills your expectations better.

What do you need to become a reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and establish your reseller hosting business, you require a web site, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to ensure that your customers' details are protected when they make payments via your website when ordering a service. Popular invoicing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-cost hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing system and even technical support for your clients. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, as they charge and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell our web hosting services without the need to purchase anything upfront yourself. What is more, they permit you to sell all their hosting solutions - shared website hosting services, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can sell all of these to your customers using a turn-key web site template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and obtain customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still provide shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always get a VPS web hosting server or a dedicated web server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, a collection of web skins and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. We have data center facilities in four countries - Australia, the States and the UK. It is a huge opportunity for you to spread your hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you ask for?
