The Essence of the Hosting Reseller Business

The World Wide Web has become a crucial factor in everybody's daily agenda. Everybody desires to launch their very own online portal, whether for entertainment, for socialization or business ends. The hosting industry is blooming. Why don't you get a part of the pie yourself?

How did it all commence?

This is how my aspiration to become a hosting reseller was begotten. Probably it was the same thought that also incited the earliest reseller web hosting providers to offer such type of hosting solutions - to enlarge their client base and to give other persons an opportunity to earn some cash.

What can you sell?

The majority of the corporations furnish Linux-based hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting Control Panel GUI allows 3 access levels - root (designated for the web hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in most circumstances you are bound by the web server disk space and traffic limitations of your web hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell private virtual web server hosting plans or dedicated web servers

The greater part of the hosting providers offering VPS solutions and dedicated packages do not actually disapprove if you use the virtual hosting server or the dedicated server to resell website hosting accounts. If you decide to sell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated server, you will exercise full authority over the entire machine, the possibility to perform any configuration modifications you deem appropriate and the possibility to keep an eye on all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The VPS servers offer similar options, but in most cases you cannot implement any kernel modifications or modifications, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest Control Panel tool that enables you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or virtual private web server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which CP graphical user interface fits your desires better.

What do you require to become a hosting reseller?

In order to become a reseller and begin your reseller web hosting business, you demand a web site, an invoicing platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your clients' info is protected when they pay using your web site when buying a service. Well-known billing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, however, one reseller hosting services provider I've chanced on that gives you a free-of-cost hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing platform and even support for your clients. The reseller web hosting solutions provider is ResellersPanel.com and their reseller web hosting program is without an analogue on the market, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to resell their web hosting solutions without the need to purchase anything upfront yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to resell all their hosting products - shared web hosting services, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can offer all of these to your customers using a turn-key design template. The profit you earn is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing tactician and win clients. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still furnish shared cPanel reseller hosting packages, as most reseller web hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a virtual private hosting server or a dedicated web server and slice it into web hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The presents coming with their cPanel hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, an assortment of web design themes and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. I have been working with them for a while now and I am rather satisfied, especially since they introduced data center facilities in 4 countries for their shared web hosting packages - Australia, the USA, Sweden and the United Kingdom. It was a unique chance to spread my hosting business further, on three continents. What more could I want?
