What is Reseller Web Hosting?

The World Wide Web is a key component of everybody's daily routine. Everyone wants to build their own personal web site, whether for amusement, for socialisation or business purposes. The shared hosting industry niche is thriving. Why not take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most companies deliver Linux-driven web hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking platform, which is very adequate for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical reseller web hosting platform that companies provide is the cPanel one, as the cPanel web hosting Control Panel software includes three levels of access - root (designated for the web hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Even though some do permit overselling, in most circumstances you are restricted by the web server hard disk storage space and bandwidth quota limitations of your reseller web hosting package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with smaller spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.

Resell virtual private servers plans or dedicated plans

The bigger part of the hosting providers offering virtual private servers plans and dedicated server do not really object if you utilize the private virtual server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you opt to sell web hosting accounts utilizing a dedicated hosting server, you will have total authority over the whole physical server, the ability to implement any config changes you think fit and the opportunity to monitor all the web hosting account owners hosted on it. The VPS hosting servers offer similar specifications, but in the majority of the instances you cannot carry out any kernel adjustments or modifications, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest CP interface that permits you to sell website hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting server or Virtual Private Server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which web hosting CP lives up to your demands better.

What do you need to become a web hosting reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and start your reseller hosting business, you require a website, 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 make certain that your customers' information is protected when they pay via your website when purchasing a web hosting product. Famous billing software systems that you can avail of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec.
