What Exactly is Web Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web has become a key staple in everybody's daily life. Everybody wishes to build their own web page, whether for fun, for socialisation or commercial ends. The shared web hosting industry is blooming. Why not take a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

Most firms deliver Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is extremely adequate for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual web hosting reseller scheme that companies offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel hosting CP software tool allows 3 levels of access - root (retained for the web hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Although some do permit overselling, in most cases you are restricted by the hosting server hard drive storage space and traffic quota limitations of your web hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Sell VPS web hosting or dedicated web hosting accounts

The bigger part of the web hosting suppliers offering VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not really mind if you utilize the private virtual web hosting server or the dedicated web hosting server to resell website hosting accounts. If you elect to resell website hosting accounts availing of a dedicated hosting web server, you will have complete authority over the whole physical server, the ability to perform any configuration modifications you see fit and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the account holders hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer similar features, but in the majority of the instances you cannot implement any kernel adjustments or changes, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The best hosting Control Panel software tool that allows you to sell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated or Virtual Private Server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel graphical user interface fulfills your expectations better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and establish your 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 an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' info is defended when they make payments using your website when ordering a product. Famous invoicing systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec.
