Reseller Web Hosting Laid Bare

The Internet is a crucial component of our daily life. Everybody wants to set up their very own personal site, whether for pleasure, for socialization or business ends. The web hosting business niche is blooming. Why not get a piece of the pie yourself?

How did it all start?

This is how my desire to be a hosting reseller originated. Perhaps it was the same thought that also stimulated the earliest reseller hosting companies to supply such kind of hosting services - to widen their client base and to give other people a possibility to gain some money.

What can you offer?

The majority of the companies provide Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely apposite for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting platform that companies provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting CP software tool includes three access levels - root (intended for the host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in most circumstances you are restricted by the hosting server disk storage space and traffic restrictions of your reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer virtual web server solutions or dedicated hosting web server accounts

The majority of the hosting distributors offering VPS server web hosting accounts and dedicated hosting accounts do not actually object if you use the virtual server or the dedicated web server to sell hosting accounts. If you choose to sell web site hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web hosting server, you will exercise complete control over the whole server, the opportunity to implement any config modifications you choose and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the customers hosted on it. The Virtual Private Servers offer similar specs, but in most cases you cannot implement any kernel adjustments or modifications, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting Control Panel graphical user interface that enables you to sell web site hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated web server or VPS hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel interface suits your desires better.

What do you require to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and begin your business, you require a web site, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your clients' information is guarded when they pay using your website when ordering a hosting service. Well-known billing software platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, however, one reseller hosting services provider I've uncovered that offers you a cost-free reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing system and even technical support for your customers. The reseller web hosting company is ResellersPanel and their hosting reseller program is unique on the marketplace, as they bill and support your clients for you, and permit you to resell their services without the need to purchase anything upfront yourself. Additionally, they allow you to resell all their hosting services - shared web hosting solutions, virtual hosting servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting packages. You can sell all of these to your clients via a ready-for-use website template. The profit you earn is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you set yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing tactician and find clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still deliver shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as most companies do, and you can always obtain a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated hosting server and partition it into web site hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bonuses offered by their cPanel reseller hosting packages will make your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to charge and support your customers, a variety of web page themes and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account. I have had an account with them for a while now and I am quite happy, even more so since they introduced data center facilities in 4 countries for their shared website hosting packages - Australia, the USA, Sweden and Great Britain. It was an enormous chance to spread my hosting business further, on 3 continents. What more could I want?
