What is Reseller Hosting?

The World Wide Web is a key staple in everyone's daily life. Everybody desires to set up their own personal site, whether for amusement, for socialisation or commercial ends. The web hosting business is thriving. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

How did it all start?

This is how my aspiration to be a web hosting reseller was conceived. Perhaps it was the same idea that also incited the earliest pioneering reseller hosting suppliers to furnish such type of hosting services - to expand their clientele and to give other persons a chance to make some profit.

What can you offer?

Most firms provide Linux-powered hosting services. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is extremely adequate for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting scheme that corporations provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting Control Panel tool includes three access levels - root (intended for the web hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in most instances you are bound by the data space and monthly bandwidth quota limits of your web hosting reseller package. 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 Server hosting solutions or dedicated packages

Most of the web hosting firms providing VPS server accounts and dedicated hosting server packages do not actually mind if you use the VPS web server or the dedicated hosting server to sell web site hosting accounts. If you opt to sell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting server, you will exert complete authority over the entire physical server, the opportunity to implement any configuration adjustments you wish and the opportunity to keep track of all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The private virtual hosting servers offer similar specs, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or modifications, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting Control Panel interface that permits you to sell web site hosting accounts using your dedicated hosting server or virtual private web hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP suits your preferences better.

What do you need to become a hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and establish your hosting business, you require a web site, a billing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your customers' information is defended when they pay using your web site when ordering a service. Popular invoicing platforms that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, though, one reseller web hosting company I've stumbled upon that offers you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing software system and even support for your customers. The reseller web hosting solutions provider is Resellers Panel and their reseller web hosting program is unique on the marketplace, as they bill and support your customers for you, and permit you to sell their services without having to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Besides, they allow you to resell all their hosting solutions - shared hosting services, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages. You can offer all of these to your customers using a ready-to-use website template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you specify yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and acquire customers. If that is a little too bold for you, they still furnish shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as most companies do, and you can always get a VPS or a dedicated server and split it into web hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bounties offered by their cPanel reseller web hosting plans will render your reseller life easier too - they supply you with ClientExec in order to charge and support your clients, an array of website skins and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. I have been with them for a while now and I am very happy, even more so since they introduced datacenters in four countries for their shared web hosting packages - Australia, the United States, Sweden and the United Kingdom. It was a terrific chance to spread my web hosting business further, on 3 continents. What more could I ask for?
