How Does Reseller Hosting Work?

The World Wide Web is an indispensable component of our everyday routine. Everybody would like to have their very own personal online portal, whether for fun, for socialisation or business purposes. The web hosting business is blossoming. Why don't you get a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the corporations distribute Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely adequate for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting CP graphical user interface includes three levels of access - root (retained for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in most cases you are restricted by the server storage space and monthly traffic restrictions of your reseller hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS hosting services or dedicated server hosting packages

The bigger part of the web hosting suppliers providing VPS hosting services and dedicated hosting do not really object if you utilize the virtual private web hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell hosting accounts. If you elect to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated web server, you will have total control over the whole physical server, the ability to implement any config changes you deem fit and the ability to keep track of all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer comparable features, but in most instances you cannot make any kernel changes or changes, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting CP graphical user interface that allows you to resell hosting accounts using your dedicated hosting web server or virtual web server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting Control Panel user interface fits your taste better.

What do you need to become a reseller?

In order to be a reseller and commence your business, you demand a website, a billing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make sure that your customers' information is guarded when they make payments via your web site when purchasing a web hosting product. Popular invoicing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a charge-free reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing platform and even support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to resell our hosting solutions without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to resell all their web hosting solutions - shared hosting plans, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your customers via a turn-key website template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you assign yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing strategist and find customers. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still offer shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always obtain a VPS or a dedicated hosting web server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bounties included in their cPanel reseller hosting plans will render your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a variety of web page themes and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. We have data centers in 4 countries - Australia, the United States of America and the UK. It is a terrific opportunity for you to spread your hosting business on 3 continents.
