Reseller Web Hosting Revealed
The World Wide Web has become a vital factor in everybody's everyday life. Everyone wishes to set up their own personal online portal, whether for pleasure, for socialization or commercial ends. The hosting business is flourishing. Why don't you get a piece of the pie yourself?
How did it all begin?
This is how my desire to be a web hosting reseller was born. Perchance it was the very same thought that also incited the earliest reseller web hosting corporations to offer such kind of hosting services - to widen their client base and to offer other people an opportunity to make some money.
What can you offer?
The majority of the vendors distribute Linux-driven web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is very suited for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller web hosting platform that providers provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP tool offers three levels of access - root (reserved for the hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the instances you are bound by the web hosting server disk storage space and monthly bandwidth quota limits of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.
Resell VPS hosting solutions or dedicated web hosting server solutions
The greater part of the hosting corporations providing VPS web hosting servers and dedicated web server accounts do not actually object if you utilize the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you opt to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting web server, you will have total authority over the entire server, the opportunity to make any configuration modifications you prefer and the ability to keep track of all the account holders hosted on it. The private virtual hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot perform any kernel modifications or adjustments, which involve kernel module reconfiguration. The finest CP user interface that enables you to resell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated web hosting server or private virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel suits your expectations better.
What do you need to become a reseller?
In order to be a reseller and start your reseller web hosting business, you demand a website, an invoicing software system, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and an SSL certificate to ensure that your customers' data is secure when they make payments via your web site when buying a hosting service. Well-known invoicing platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, though, one particular reseller hosting provider I've uncovered that offers you a free-of-cost reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use web site, a billing platform and even support for your customers. The reseller hosting company is ResellersPanel and their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the market, as they charge and support your clients on your behalf, and allow you to sell their hosting solutions without the need to buy anything beforehand yourself. Moreover, they permit you to sell all their web hosting solutions - shared website hosting services, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting plans. You can offer all of these to your clients using a turn-key web design template. The profit you make is in fact the difference between their wholesale price and the price you name yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing strategist and find clients. If that is a little too bold for you, they still offer shared cPanel web hosting reseller plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting providers do, and you can always obtain a VPS hosting server or a dedicated server and slice it into web hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The extras offered by their cPanel reseller hosting plans will render your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your customers, a variety of design templates and even a free eNom reseller account. I have had an account with them for a while now and I am very happy even more so since they introduced data center facilities in 4 countries for their shared website hosting packages - Australia the States Sweden and the United Kingdom. It was an excellent chance to spread my hosting business further on 3 continents. What more could I want?
