What In Fact is Hosting Reseller?
The World Wide Web is an indispensable component of everybody's everyday agenda. Everyone would like to set up their very own personal site, whether for entertainment, for socialisation or business ends. The shared hosting industry is blooming. Why not get a piece of the pie yourself?
What can you resell?
The majority of the providers provide Linux-driven hosting services. Linux is a multi-user platform, which is extremely apt for both dedicated and shared hosting servers. The typical hosting reseller platform that companies offer is the cPanel one, because the cPanel web hosting Control Panel GUI allows 3 levels of access - root (intended for the web hosting vendor itself), reseller (that is where you come in) and user (for your customers). Even though some do permit overselling, in the majority of the circumstances you are restricted by the hard drive storage space and monthly bandwidth limitations of your hosting reseller package. It is like a sphere, which you fill up with tinier spheres - when you have filled it all up, you cannot add more.
Resell virtual private servers packages or dedicated server hosting packages
The majority of the web hosting distributors offering virtual private servers packages and dedicated server do not really object if you utilize the VPS web server or the dedicated server to resell website hosting accounts. If you choose to resell website hosting accounts using a dedicated server, you will have total authority over the whole machine, the ability to make any configuration changes you deem appropriate and the possibility to keep an eye on all the users hosted on it. The virtual private web hosting servers offer comparable specs, but in the majority of the instances you cannot carry out any kernel changes or modifications, which involve kernel module rearrangement. The best Control Panel GUI that permits you to sell hosting accounts using your dedicated web hosting server or virtual web hosting server is, again, cPanel, although you can also make use of DirectAdmin, depending on which hosting Control Panel tool meets your expectations better.
