Reseller Hosting Explained

The Internet has become a crucial part of everyone's everyday life. Everybody desires to have their own personal web portal, whether for entertainment, for socialisation or commercial ends. The shared hosting industry niche is thriving. Why don't you get a piece of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

The majority of the companies furnish Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting scheme that corporations provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting Control Panel GUI includes three levels of access - root (retained for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the web hosting server storage space and monthly traffic quota restrictions of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS hosting or dedicated hosting server accounts

Most of the web hosting distributors providing VPS hosting and dedicated hosting do not actually object if you utilize the virtual private web hosting server or the dedicated web server to resell web hosting accounts. If you opt to sell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will have complete authority over the entire server, the possibility to implement any config adjustments you prefer and the possibility to keep an eye on all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual servers offer comparable specs, but in most cases you cannot make any kernel modifications or changes, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting CP software that enables you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web server or VPS is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP software lives up to your preferences better.

What do you require to be a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and start your reseller hosting business, you demand a web site, a billing platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to ensure that your customers' info is defended when they pay using your web site when ordering a hosting service. Popular billing systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing system and even technical support for your clients.

Additionally, they permit you to sell all their web hosting solutions - shared web hosting packages, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages.
