A Definition of Hosting Reseller Business

The World Wide Web has become an essential component of our daily routine. Everybody wants to build their own web site, whether for fun, for socialization or business ends. The hosting industry is thriving. Why not get a piece of the pie yourself?

How did it all start?

This is how my desire to become a hosting reseller was begotten. Perchance it was the same idea that also impelled the earliest pioneering reseller hosting providers to provide such type of hosting services - to grow their client base and to give other persons an opportunity to gain some profit.

What can you resell?

The majority of the corporations offer Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking OS, which is very adequate for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual hosting reseller platform that vendors offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel Control Panel interface offers 3 levels of access - root (retained for the hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do allow overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are bound by the web content storage space and web traffic restrictions of your reseller hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS web hosting server solutions or dedicated hosting plans

Most of the hosting providers providing VPS hosting solutions and dedicated server solutions do not actually disapprove if you utilize the VPS hosting server or the dedicated web server to sell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated web server, you will exert full control over the whole physical machine, the ability to carry out any config changes you see fit and the possibility to keep an eye on all the account owners hosted on it. The private virtual web servers offer comparable specifications, but in most cases you cannot make any kernel adjustments or modifications, which require kernel module rearrangement. The best web hosting Control Panel interface that enables you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or virtual private web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which user interface corresponds to your requirements better.

What do you need to become a reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and begin your reseller hosting business, you require a website, a billing system, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' information is shielded when they make payments using your website when purchasing a web hosting product. Well-known invoicing software systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, though, one reseller hosting provider I've found that offers you a free-of-cost reseller hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-for-use website, a billing software platform and even support for your customers. The reseller hosting provider is Resellers Panel and their reseller web hosting program is without an analogue on the market, as they charge and support your customers for you, and permit you to sell their services without having to buy anything upfront yourself. What is more, they permit you to resell all their hosting products - shared web hosting packages, Virtual Private Servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated hosting packages. You can offer all of these to your customers via a turn-key website template. The profit you earn is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you determine yourself, so all you need to do is be a good marketing tactician and entice customers. If that is a bit too bold for you, they still deliver shared cPanel web hosting reseller packages, as most reseller hosting companies do, and you can always acquire a private virtual web server or a dedicated web server and partition it into website hosting accounts, which you can promote yourself. The bonuses offered by their cPanel reseller web hosting packages will make your reseller life easier too - they offer ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a bunch of design templates and even a cost-free eNom reseller account. I have had an account with them for a while now and I am very pleased, even more so since they introduced datacenters in 4 countries for their shared website hosting packages - Australia, the United States of America, Sweden and Britain. It was an enormous chance to expand my web hosting business further, on 3 continents. What more could I ask for?
