The Internet has become an essential element in everyone's everyday agenda. Everybody wants to own their very own personal web portal, whether for fun, for socialization or business ends. The web hosting industry is thriving. Why don't you take a part of the pie yourself?
This is how my wish to be a hosting reseller was begotten. Maybe it was the same thought that also urged the first pioneering reseller hosting distributors to deliver such kind of web hosting solutions - to widen their customer base and to give other people an opportunity to make some profit.
Most firms deliver Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting platform that vendors provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel Control Panel user interface includes three access levels - root (meant for the web hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in most circumstances you are bound by the web hosting storage space and web traffic quota limitations of your reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with tinier spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.
The greater part of the hosts offering private virtual hosting servers and dedicated hosting server solutions do not actually mind if you use the virtual server or the dedicated server to sell hosting accounts. If you opt to sell hosting accounts availing of a dedicated server, you will get full authority over the whole server, the ability to carry out any configuration adjustments you choose and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the clients hosted on it. The virtual private hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in most cases you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module rearrangement. The finest hosting CP user interface that enables you to resell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting server or virtual private web server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which GUI meets your requirements better.
In order to be a hosting reseller and start your reseller web hosting business, you demand a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your clients' details are secure when they make payments via your web site when ordering a web hosting product. Popular invoicing software platforms that you can use are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. There is, however, one reseller hosting services provider I've come across that gives you a free-of-cost reseller web hosting account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing system and even technical support for your clients. The reseller hosting company is ResellersPanel and their hosting reseller program is unique on the market, as they charge and support your customers on your behalf, and allow you to resell their hosting solutions without having to buy anything beforehand yourself. Additionally, they allow you to sell all their web hosting services - shared web hosting packages, VPS servers, semi-dedicated and dedicated web hosting solutions. You can offer all of these to your customers using a ready-to-use template. The profit you gain is basically the difference between their wholesale price and the price you set yourself, so all you have to do is be a decent marketing tactician and allure customers. If that is a bit too innovative for you, they still supply shared cPanel reseller web hosting plans, as the majority of the reseller hosting companies do, and you can always obtain a virtual hosting server or a dedicated web hosting server and slice it into web site hosting accounts, which you can offer yourself. The presents coming with their cPanel web hosting reseller plans will render your reseller life easier too - they give you ClientExec in order to bill and support your clients, a bunch of website layouts and even a free-of-charge eNom reseller account. I have had an account with them for a while now and I am very satisfied even more so since they introduced data center facilities in 4 countries for their shared web hosting plans - Australia the States Sweden and England. It was an immense chance to expand my hosting business further on 3 continents. What more could I desire?
