What Exactly is Web Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web is a crucial staple in everyone's daily routine. Everyone wants to build their very own web portal, whether for enjoyment, for socialisation or commercial purposes. The web hosting business niche is blossoming. Why not get a part of the pie yourself?

What can you offer?

Most corporations supply Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is extremely suited for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller scheme that vendors provide is the cPanel one, since the cPanel CP user interface offers 3 levels of access - root (reserved for the hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the situations you are restricted by the web hosting space and monthly traffic quota 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 or dedicated web hosting plans

The greater part of the web hosting corporations offering VPS web hosting and dedicated web hosting do not really mind if you use the VPS web hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell hosting accounts. If you choose to sell hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have full authority over the whole machine, the ability to perform any config adjustments you wish and the ability to monitor all the clients hosted on it. The VPS web hosting servers offer comparable features, but in the majority of the instances you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or modifications, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The best web hosting Control Panel user interface that allows you to resell web hosting accounts availing of your dedicated hosting web server or private virtual server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel software lives up to your expectations better.

What do you need to become a reseller?

In order to become a web hosting reseller and begin your reseller hosting business, you need a website, a billing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make certain that your customers' information is protected when they make payments using your website when buying a hosting service. Famous invoicing platforms that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec.
