Reseller Web Hosting Uncovered

The World Wide Web is a vital factor in everybody's daily agenda. Everyone wishes to build their own web site, whether for amusement, for socialization or business ends. The web hosting business niche is flourishing. Why not get a chunk of the pie yourself?

How did it all commence?

This is how my idea to become a hosting reseller was born. Perhaps it was the very same thought that also impelled the first pioneering reseller hosting corporations to supply such type of services - to increase their customer base and to give other people a possibility to make some money.

What can you resell?

Most companies offer Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely suited for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting platform that providers provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel Control Panel GUI allows three levels of access - root (retained for the hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in most situations you are restricted by the disk drive space and monthly bandwidth quota limits of your reseller web hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell virtual web server hosting accounts or dedicated hosting web server plans

Most of the hosting suppliers providing private virtual server solutions and dedicated hosting packages do not really mind if you utilize the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell hosting accounts. If you decide to sell web hosting accounts availing of a dedicated web hosting server, you will exert total control over the whole machine, the opportunity to implement any configuration modifications you deem fit and the ability to keep track of all the hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer similar features, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel modifications or modifications, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The best hosting Control Panel interface that allows you to resell web site hosting accounts using your dedicated hosting web server or private virtual hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which GUI fulfills your preferences better.

What do you require to become a reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and begin your business, you need a web site, a billing platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to guarantee that your customers' details are guarded when they pay using your website when ordering a web hosting product. Well-known billing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, however, one particular reseller hosting solutions provider I've stumbled upon that offers you a free-of-cost reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, an invoicing software system and even technical support for your customers. The reseller web hosting services provider is ResellersPanel.com and their web hosting reseller program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to sell their web hosting services without the need to purchase anything beforehand yourself. What is more, they allow you to resell all their web hosting solutions - shared hosting solutions, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can sell all of these to your customers using a ready-to-use web design template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you settle yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing tactician and obtain customers. If that is a little too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting companies do, and you can always obtain a private virtual server or a dedicated hosting web server and divide it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The gifts offered by their cPanel web hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, an array of templates and even a charge-free eNom reseller account. I have had an account with them for a while now and I am quite gratified, even more so since they introduced data centers in four countries for their shared web site hosting plans - Australia, the United States of America, Sweden and Great Britain. It was an excellent chance to expand my web hosting business further, on three continents. What more could I ask for?
