How Reseller Hosting Works

The World Wide Web has become a crucial part of everybody's daily agenda. Everyone wishes to launch their very own personal web site, whether for entertainment, for socialization or commercial purposes. The shared hosting industry niche is flourishing. Why don't you take a chunk of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

Most vendors provide Linux-powered web hosting services. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is extremely applicable for both dedicated hosting and shared web hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting platform that providers offer is the cPanel one, as the cPanel Control Panel software tool allows 3 access levels - root (intended for the web hosting distributor itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your clients). Even though some do allow overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are bound by the hard drive space and monthly bandwidth limitations 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.

Offer virtual private servers or dedicated hosting web servers

The bigger part of the web hosting firms providing virtual private servers and dedicated server do not really object if you utilize the virtual web hosting server or the dedicated server to sell hosting accounts. If you elect to sell website hosting accounts using a dedicated hosting server, you will have full authority over the entire server, the ability to carry out any config changes you like and the opportunity to keep an eye on all the hosting account owners hosted on it. The virtual private hosting servers offer comparable specs, but in most cases you cannot perform any kernel modifications or adjustments, which require kernel module rearrangement. The finest CP interface that allows you to resell website hosting accounts availing of your dedicated web hosting server or VPS hosting server is, again, cPanel, even though you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which Control Panel software befits your demands better.

What do you need to be a reseller?

In order to become a hosting reseller and commence your business, you demand a website, an invoicing software platform, a merchant account with a payment processor such as PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and an SSL certificate to ensure that your clients' information is safe when they pay via your website when buying a product. Well-known invoicing systems that you can make use of are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec.
