The Nature of the Hosting Reseller Business

The Internet is a crucial component of everybody's daily agenda. Everybody wishes to own their very own personal web portal, whether for pleasure, for socialization or business ends. The hosting business niche is flourishing. Why don't you get a piece of the pie yourself?

How did it all begin?

This is how my aspiration to become a web hosting reseller was born. Probably it was the very same thought that also incited the earliest pioneering reseller hosting corporations to supply such sort of services - to increase their client base and to offer other people an opportunity to gain some profit.

What can you resell?

Most vendors provide Linux-powered web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is very applicable for both dedicated and shared web hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller platform that vendors provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel Control Panel user interface includes 3 levels of access - root (retained for the host itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Although some do allow overselling, in most cases you are bound by the web server disk storage space and monthly traffic limitations of your web hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Promote VPS web hosting server solutions or dedicated web hosting packages

The greater part of the web hosting providers providing VPS hosting solutions and dedicated server hosting plans do not actually object if you utilize the Virtual Private Server or the dedicated server to sell hosting accounts. If you choose to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting server, you will exert total authority over the entire physical server, the ability to make any configuration modifications you think fit and the possibility to monitor all the web hosting account holders hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer similar features, but in the majority of the instances you cannot carry out any kernel changes or changes, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The best CP graphical user interface that allows you to resell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or private virtual server is, again, cPanel, although you can also utilize DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel software suits your preferences better.

What do you need to become a hosting reseller?

In order to be a reseller and begin your reseller hosting business, you demand a website, an invoicing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' info is protected when they pay via your website when buying a hosting service. Well-known billing software platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, though, one particular reseller hosting services provider I've chanced on that gives you a charge-free reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing software system and even support for your customers. The reseller hosting solutions provider is ResellersPanel and their reseller hosting program is without an analogue on the marketplace, since they bill and support your customers for you, and allow you to resell their hosting services without having to buy anything in advance yourself. Additionally, they allow you to sell all their hosting services - shared website hosting solutions, virtual servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting solutions. You can sell all of these to your clients using a turn-key website template. The profit you earn is actually the difference between their wholesale price and the price you fix yourself, so all you have to do is be a good marketing strategist and acquire clients. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still offer shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting companies do, and you can always order a private virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and slice it into website hosting accounts, which you can sell yourself. The bonuses included in their cPanel hosting reseller packages will make your reseller life easier as well - they furnish you with ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a collection of website themes and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account. I have been working with them for a while now and I am quite happy, especially since they introduced data centers in 4 countries for their shared hosting plans - Australia, America, Sweden and the United Kingdom. It was a terrific chance to expand my web hosting business further, on three continents. What more could I ask for?
