Resellers can often provide a personalized touch to web hosting. Even with plenty of major web hosting companies competing against them, resellers stay in business by offering their web design and consulting clients web hosting from their own small businesses.
This makes reseller hosting an ideal choice for users who want the ability to offer paying customers hosting services without the responsibility involved in running a server or VPS. The web host still handles all of the heavy lifting in the background, while the reseller is free to add, manage, and delete hosting accounts within his or her own limited control panel space.
Offering reseller hosting options has never been easier, thanks to cPanel/WHM. Making use of a trimmed-down version of the WHM (WebHost Manager) interface, cPanel provides resellers with only the tools they need to give their customers a quality hosting experience, without all of the complexity of managing a VPS or full dedicated server.
With cPanel, resellers can control disk space quotas, monitor account usage, suspend accounts, view website statistics, create custom hosting plans, and much more. Moreover, server administrators can configure reseller accounts just the way they need them. They can limit reseller accounts to only adding and removing clients or choose from several other sets of privileges, including a more advanced set that gives the reseller options such as account and quota modification.
Becoming a reseller is an easy way to personalize your clients’ web hosting experience, provided you have the time to offer them support and friendly customer service. With cPanel, you can focus more on the customers and less on the technical aspects of hosting.
