How Does Reseller Hosting Work?

The World Wide Web has become a key element in our daily life. Everybody wants to establish their own personal web page, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or business ends. The shared web hosting industry niche is thriving. Why don't you get a part of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the companies furnish Linux-based web hosting services. Linux is a multi-user OS, which is extremely suited for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting scheme that companies offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel web hosting Control Panel software tool offers three levels of access - root (designated for the web hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the cases you are bound by the hosting server hard drive storage space and bandwidth limits of your reseller hosting 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 hosting server accounts

The majority of the hosting firms providing VPS web hosting and dedicated server web hosting do not actually disapprove if you utilize the virtual hosting server or the dedicated hosting server to resell hosting accounts. If you opt to sell website hosting accounts using a dedicated web server, you will have total authority over the entire physical machine, the possibility to carry out any configuration modifications you deem appropriate and the opportunity to monitor all the clients hosted on it. The VPS web servers offer comparable features, but in most instances you cannot perform any kernel modifications or modifications, which require kernel module reconfiguration. The best CP interface that allows you to sell website hosting accounts using your dedicated server or virtual web server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel GUI fits your requirements better.

What do you require to be a reseller?

In order to become a reseller and establish your hosting business, you need a website, a billing software platform, a merchant account with an online payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, etc., and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to guarantee that your clients' info is guarded when they make payments using your website when purchasing a service. Popular invoicing software systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec.
