Reseller Hosting Unveiled
The World Wide Web has become an indispensable component of everyone's daily life. Everyone would like to have their own personal web page, whether for fun, for socialisation or business ends. The hosting business niche is blooming. Why don't you get a chunk of the pie yourself?
What can you resell?
The majority of the corporations deliver Linux-based hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very applicable for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that providers offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP GUI offers three levels of access - root (reserved for the host itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are restricted by the hard disk storage space and monthly bandwidth quota restrictions of your reseller hosting plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.
Offer VPS plans or dedicated server hosting accounts
The bigger part of the web hosting vendors providing VPS plans and dedicated server do not actually object if you use the virtual private web hosting server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you opt to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting web server, you will have total control over the whole machine, the ability to carry out any configuration modifications you deem fit and the possibility to keep an eye on all the account holders hosted on it. The private virtual web hosting servers offer comparable features, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The best Control Panel graphical user interface that permits you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated web server or private virtual web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP software fits your preferences better.
What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?
In order to be a hosting reseller and establish your business, you demand a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to make certain that your clients' data is shielded when they pay via your web site when buying a hosting product. Famous billing systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, offer you a free reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use web site, an invoicing system and even support for your customers. Their reseller hosting program is unique on the market, since they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to sell our web hosting services without the need to buy anything beforehand yourself. Furthermore, they permit you to sell all their web hosting solutions - shared web hosting services, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting services.
