What is Web Hosting Reseller?

The World Wide Web is an indispensable part of everybody's daily life. Everyone wants to launch their very own personal online portal, whether for amusement, for socialization or commercial purposes. The hosting business niche is blooming. Why not get a share of the pie yourself?

What can you sell?

The majority of the corporations furnish Linux-powered hosting solutions. Linux is a multitasking Operating System, which is very suitable for both dedicated web hosting and shared web hosting servers. The typical web hosting reseller scheme that firms offer is the cPanel one, since the cPanel web hosting Control Panel interface offers 3 access levels - root (retained for the web hosting supplier itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your clients). Although some do permit overselling, in most instances you are bound by the web hosting storage space and monthly bandwidth quota limitations of your web hosting reseller plan. It is like a sphere, which you stuff with smaller spheres - when you have stuffed it all up, you cannot add more.

Offer VPS or dedicated web hosting solutions

The majority of the web hosts offering VPS and dedicated server do not actually mind if you use the private virtual server or the dedicated web hosting server to sell website hosting accounts. If you opt to sell hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have complete control over the entire physical machine, the opportunity to implement any configuration adjustments you like and the ability to keep track of all the account holders hosted on it. The virtual web hosting servers offer comparable specifications, but in most instances you cannot implement any kernel adjustments or changes, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The best CP user interface that enables you to sell web hosting accounts utilizing your dedicated hosting web server or virtual hosting server is, once again, cPanel, although you can also use DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel GUI suits your expectations better.
