How Reseller Hosting Functions

The Internet has become an integral fragment of everybody's daily routine. Everybody wants to build their very own personal web page, whether for enjoyment, for socialization or business ends. The hosting industry niche is blooming. Why not take a slice of the pie yourself?

What can you resell?

The majority of the vendors furnish Linux-powered web hosting solutions. Linux is a multi-user Operating System, which is very apt for both dedicated hosting and shared hosting servers. The usual reseller hosting platform that corporations offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel hosting CP tool allows 3 access levels - root (intended for the web hosting provider itself), reseller (that is where you enter) and user (for your customers). Even though some do allow overselling, in most circumstances you are restricted by the web server disk space and bandwidth quota limits of your reseller hosting plan. 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 services or dedicated web hosting server packages

Most of the web hosting providers providing VPS services and dedicated server do not really disapprove if you utilize the private virtual web server or the dedicated hosting web server to sell hosting accounts. If you opt to sell web hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have complete authority over the entire physical server, the possibility to carry out any config changes you think fit and the possibility to monitor all the customers hosted on it. The virtual web hosting servers offer comparable options, but in the majority of the cases you cannot carry out any kernel changes or modifications, which necessitate kernel module reconfiguration. The best Control Panel interface that enables you to resell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting web server or virtual private hosting server is, once again, cPanel, even though you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which CP lives up to your needs better.

What do you require to be a hosting reseller?

In order to be a hosting reseller and establish your reseller web hosting business, you need a website, a billing system, a merchant account with an online payment processor like PayPal, WorldPay, MoneyBookers, 2CheckOut, and so on, and a Secure Sockets Layer certificate to make sure that your customers' info is safe when they make payments via your web site when buying a product. Famous billing systems that you can utilize are WHMCS, AWBS and ClientExec.
