How Web Hosting Reseller Operates
The Internet is a key element in everyone's everyday agenda. Everybody wishes to have their own web portal, whether for amusement, for socialisation or business ends. The hosting industry niche is blossoming. Why not get a slice of the pie yourself?
What can you resell?
The majority of the firms deliver Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely adequate for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller scheme that providers offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel Control Panel graphical user interface includes 3 levels of access - root (meant for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in most situations you are bound by the web content space and traffic limitations of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.
Resell VPS plans or dedicated hosting web server solutions
The majority of the web hosting firms providing VPS plans and dedicated server do not really disapprove if you use the virtual web server or the dedicated hosting web server to resell website hosting accounts. If you decide to resell website hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated server, you will have complete authority over the whole physical machine, the ability to implement any configuration changes you prefer and the opportunity to monitor all the users hosted on it. The virtual hosting servers offer similar specs, but in most instances you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or changes, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest web hosting Control Panel user interface that enables you to sell hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or virtual web hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel software tool meets your requirements better.
What do you require to be a hosting reseller?
In order to become a web hosting reseller and commence your web hosting business, you demand a web site, a billing software 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 ensure that your customers' information is safe when they pay via your web site when purchasing a hosting product. Popular billing software platforms that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec.
