Reseller Hosting Description

The Internet has become an indispensable component of everybody's daily life. Everybody wants to establish their own personal web portal, whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or business purposes. The shared hosting industry niche is blooming. Why don't you take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the vendors provide Linux-powered hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very adequate for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical reseller hosting platform that firms offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel hosting Control Panel software allows three access levels - root (retained for the web hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in most circumstances you are restricted by the content storage space and traffic restrictions of your reseller hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS hosting or dedicated server hosting solutions

The greater part of the hosting providers providing VPS hosting and dedicated server do not actually mind if you utilize the VPS or the dedicated server to sell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have complete control over the entire server, the opportunity to perform any config adjustments you deem fit and the possibility to keep track of all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The virtual private web servers offer comparable specs, but in the majority of the instances you cannot make any kernel adjustments or modifications, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest CP software tool that allows you to sell hosting accounts using your dedicated or private virtual web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP tool fulfills your expectations better.

What do you require to become a hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and launch your business, you require a website, a billing system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your clients' information is guarded when they make payments using your web site when buying a web hosting product. Well-known billing software platforms that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a free-of-charge reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, an invoicing software platform and even support for your clients. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the market, as they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and permit you to sell our hosting solutions without having to purchase anything beforehand yourself. Moreover, they allow you to resell all their services - shared hosting services, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your customers using a ready-for-use web template. The profit you earn is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you determine yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and lure clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still furnish shared cPanel reseller hosting plans, as most reseller web hosting companies do, and you can always order a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server and divide it into hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The gifts included in their cPanel reseller hosting plans will render your reseller life easier as well - they offer ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, an array of web site skins and even a free eNom reseller account. We have data center facilities in four countries - Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom. It is a huge chance for you to spread your hosting business on three continents.
