What Precisely is Hosting Reseller?
The World Wide Web has become a crucial factor in everybody's everyday life. Everyone wants to have their very own personal website, whether for fun, for socialization or business purposes. The hosting business niche is thriving. Why not get a share of the pie yourself?
How did it all start?
This is how my aspiration to become a web hosting reseller was born. Probably it was the very same thought that also urged the first hosting reseller vendors to offer such type of web hosting services - to multiply their clientele and to give other persons a possibility to earn some cash.
What can you resell?
The majority of the vendors offer Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller web hosting platform that firms provide is the cPanel one, because the cPanel web hosting Control Panel GUI offers 3 access levels - root (retained for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in most situations you are bound by the disk drive storage space and monthly bandwidth limitations of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.
Offer virtual web servers or dedicated plans
Most of the hosting vendors offering VPS server web hosting packages and dedicated hosting solutions do not actually disapprove if you utilize the VPS web hosting server or the dedicated server to resell web site hosting accounts. If you opt to sell hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting web server, you will exercise total authority over the entire physical server, the opportunity to perform any config modifications you want and the possibility to keep an eye on all the users hosted on it. The virtual web servers offer comparable specs, but in most cases you cannot make any kernel changes or changes, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting Control Panel interface that enables you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting web server or virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting CP graphical user interface corresponds to your preferences better.
What do you require to become a hosting reseller?
In order to become a web hosting reseller and kick off your web hosting business, you demand a web site, a billing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your customers' info is secure when they make payments using your website when purchasing a product. Famous billing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, however, one reseller hosting services provider I've stumbled upon that offers you a free-of-charge reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, an invoicing system and even support for your customers. The reseller hosting services provider is ResellersPanel and their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the market, as they charge and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell their hosting solutions without having to buy anything upfront yourself. In addition, they allow you to sell all their products - shared website hosting solutions, VPS hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can sell all of these to your customers using a ready-to-use web template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and find customers. If that is a little too innovative for you, they still deliver shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as the majority of the reseller hosting companies do, and you can always order a virtual server or a dedicated web server and split it into web site hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The presents included in their cPanel reseller hosting plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they supply you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, an array of web design templates and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. I have been working with them for a while now and I am pretty gratified especially since they introduced datacenter facilities in four countries for their shared hosting plans - Australia the United States Sweden and the United Kingdom. It was a big chance to spread my web hosting business further on 3 continents. What more could I ask for?
