Web Hosting Reseller Unmasked

The Internet is a key factor in everybody's everyday life. Everybody wishes to create their own personal web portal, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or commercial ends. The shared hosting business is blooming. Why not take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the providers furnish Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely suited for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting Control Panel software tool offers three access levels - root (meant for the web hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in most cases you are bound by the web hosting storage space and traffic restrictions of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS hosting or dedicated web hosting solutions

The greater part of the web hosting firms providing VPS hosting and dedicated hosting do not actually disapprove if you use the VPS or the dedicated web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you elect to resell hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting server, you will have total authority over the entire server, the possibility to implement any config changes you think fit and the opportunity to monitor all the users hosted on it. The private virtual web hosting servers offer similar specifications, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel changes or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest web hosting CP graphical user interface that enables you to sell web hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting web server or private virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel software matches your requirements better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to be a reseller and launch your reseller web hosting business, you need a web site, an invoicing platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make certain that your clients' information is guarded when they pay using your web site when purchasing a product. Well-known invoicing platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a charge-free web hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing software system and even technical support for your customers. Their web hosting reseller program is unique on the market, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell our hosting solutions without the need to buy anything upfront yourself. Furthermore, they allow you to sell all their hosting solutions - shared website hosting plans, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can offer all of these to your clients using a ready-for-use template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you assign yourself, so all you need to do is be a decent marketing strategist and earn customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still deliver shared cPanel web hosting reseller plans, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always acquire a virtual private web server or a dedicated hosting server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself.
