Reseller Hosting Unveiled

The World Wide Web is an indispensable factor in everyone's daily agenda. Everyone would like to own their very own web portal, whether for amusement, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared hosting industry niche is flourishing. Why don't you take a part of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

The majority of the companies furnish Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is very adequate for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel CP tool includes three access levels - root (designated for the web hosting company itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the cases you are restricted by the server disk space and web traffic limitations of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell virtual private servers or dedicated hosting server solutions

The bigger part of the hosts offering virtual private servers and dedicated server do not really mind if you utilize the virtual hosting server or the dedicated server to sell web hosting accounts. If you choose to resell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting server, you will have full control over the entire physical server, the opportunity to perform any config adjustments you wish and the ability to monitor all the customers hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer similar features, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or modifications, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting CP graphical user interface that enables you to resell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated or virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP satisfies your anticipations better.

What do you require to be a hosting reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and kick off your web hosting business, you demand a website, a billing platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to ensure that your customers' information is shielded when they make payments using your website when purchasing a service. Famous billing software systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, a billing system and even technical support for your clients.

Additionally, they permit you to sell all their products - shared website hosting services, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your customers via a ready-for-use web page template.
