In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there is another reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to start your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that more and more people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to make hosting package deals and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal sites on the server as well, but you may also make a good profit by running a successful business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your customers will have extra system resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to function effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you will have certain limitations in this regard.
Reselling Options in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting service which we supply include several website hosting Control Panels to select from and two of them are ideal for creating your own website hosting company, since they have a client and a reseller side. DirectAdmin and cPanel are one of the most preferred Control Panels out there and they will allow you to set up everything quickly. All the cPanel-equipped servers feature two additional bonuses free of charge - a domain reseller account with eNom - one of the biggest registrars, which does not include the deposit that is normally required if you register directly with them, plus a billing/support solution called ClientExec, that will connect your Internet site to the cPanel reseller account and that will allow you to bill your clients and to provide them support through a built-in ticketing system. The full root-level access to the virtual server will enable you to do nearly anything you'd like, so creating and taking care of a profitable website hosting business of your own is a quick and simple project.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Servers
When you use a dedicated server from our company, you'll get everything you need to start a winning web hosting business almost instantly. We have several different plans, to give you a chance to select the best one when it comes to the system resources that you will need and the initial budget that you have at the start. All of the servers provide full root access, that will enable you to install anything your customers may need for their sites. Two of the 3 web hosting Control Panel choices that we offer are suitable for creating a reseller business - DirectAdmin and cPanel. They both have client and reseller levels and different advantages. If you acquire the server with DirectAdmin, you can not only have direct clients, but also sub-resellers. When you get your server with cPanel, on the other hand, you will acquire an eNom domain reseller account and the ClientExec billing and support software, that will allow you to offer ticket support and to accept Internet payments.
