How Hosting Reseller Functions

The World Wide Web has become a vital factor in our everyday agenda. Everybody wishes to establish their very own personal online portal, whether for fun, for socialization or business purposes. The shared web hosting industry is blossoming. Why not take a share of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most corporations furnish Linux-based web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely suitable for both dedicated web hosting and shared hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller platform that providers offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel CP user interface offers 3 access levels - root (meant for the hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in the majority of the situations you are bound by the hosting server hard disk storage space and monthly traffic quota limits of your hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell VPS web hosting or dedicated web server solutions

The bigger part of the hosting firms providing VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not really mind if you use the VPS web hosting server or the dedicated server to resell web hosting accounts. If you decide to resell hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting web server, you will have complete control over the whole physical machine, the possibility to carry out any configuration modifications you deem appropriate and the possibility to keep an eye on all the users hosted on it. The Virtual Private Servers offer similar specifications, but in most instances you cannot make any kernel modifications or adjustments, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The finest web hosting CP GUI that permits you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated or virtual private web hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel tool fulfills your needs better.

What do you need to be a hosting reseller?

In order to be a web hosting reseller and establish your reseller web hosting business, you demand a web site, an invoicing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your clients' details are safe when they make payments using your web site when purchasing a hosting service. Famous invoicing software systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec. The guys at ResellersPanel, however, give you a charge-free hosting reseller account with all that included in it - a ready-to-use website, a billing platform and even technical support for your clients.
