What Does Hosting Reseller Represent?

The Internet is a crucial fragment of everybody's everyday life. Everyone wants to build their own personal web page, whether for entertainment, for socialization or business purposes. The shared hosting business niche is blossoming. Why not take a share of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the corporations offer Linux-driven hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is very apt for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller scheme that vendors offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting Control Panel graphical user interface offers three levels of access - root (retained for the hosting provider 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 bound by the disk drive storage space and monthly traffic quota limits of your hosting reseller 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 virtual private servers plans or dedicated web server packages

The greater part of the hosting vendors providing virtual private servers plans and dedicated server do not actually object if you use the virtual web server or the dedicated hosting server to sell web hosting accounts. If you elect to sell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting server, you will have complete control over the whole machine, the opportunity to implement any config adjustments you deem relevant and the opportunity to monitor all the hosting account holders hosted on it. The VPS servers offer comparable specifications, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel modifications or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best CP graphical user interface that enables you to sell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which graphical user interface meets your needs better.

What do you need to become a hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and start your hosting business, you demand a web site, a billing software system, 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 customers' details are defended when they make payments via your website when buying a hosting product. Popular invoicing software platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing software platform and even technical support for your customers. Their hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to sell our web hosting services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. Additionally, they allow you to sell all their products - shared hosting solutions, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can sell all of these to your clients via a ready-to-use design template. The profit you gain is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you set yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and attract clients. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still furnish shared cPanel hosting reseller plans, as most companies do, and you can always get a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and split it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The extras included in their cPanel hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they provide you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, an assortment of web page themes and even a charge-free eNom reseller account. We have datacenters in 4 countries - Australia, the States and Great Britain. It is an immense chance for you to expand your web hosting business on 3 continents. What more could you wish for?
