How Does Hosting Reseller Operate?
The Internet has become an indispensable component of our everyday life. Everybody wishes to establish their very own personal web portal, whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or business ends. The shared hosting business niche is thriving. Why not take a part of the pie yourself?
What can you resell?
The majority of the corporations supply Linux-based hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is extremely adequate for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller scheme that companies offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP software includes three access levels - root (intended for the web hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the cases you are restricted by the server storage space and bandwidth quota restrictions of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.
Resell VPS hosting or dedicated web server plans
Most of the web hosting firms offering VPS hosting and dedicated server do not really object if you utilize the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated server to resell web hosting accounts. If you choose to sell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting web server, you will have full authority over the entire machine, the possibility to make any config changes you deem appropriate and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the hosting account owners hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer similar features, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel modifications or modifications, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The best CP tool that enables you to sell web hosting accounts using your dedicated web hosting server or private virtual server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP GUI lives up to your preferences better.
What do you require to become a hosting reseller?
In order to be a hosting reseller and start your business, you need a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to make certain that your customers' details are shielded when they make payments via your web site when purchasing a web hosting product. Famous invoicing systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a cost-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, an invoicing software system and even technical support for your customers. Their 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 our services without having to purchase anything upfront yourself. In addition, they allow you to sell all their products - shared website hosting solutions, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting services. You can sell all of these to your clients using a ready-for-use website template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you designate yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and allure clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still supply shared cPanel hosting reseller packages, as most reseller hosting providers do, and you can always order a private virtual web hosting server or a dedicated web server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The presents offered by their cPanel hosting reseller packages will render your reseller life easier as well - they provide you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a selection of web site templates and even a free eNom reseller account.
