In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to start your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that more and more people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you can create web hosting plans then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your personal websites on the server as well, but you can also make a very good profit by running a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their websites may need in order to operate effectively. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared hosting reseller program, since you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
Reselling Options in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS web hosting service that we provide come with several website hosting Control Panels to choose from and two of them are ideal for starting your own web hosting business, as they have a client as well as a reseller side. DirectAdmin and cPanel are among the most widely used Control Panels available and they'll help you set up everything almost instantly. All of the cPanel-equipped servers include two more bonuses for free - a domain reseller account with eNom - one of the biggest registrars, which does not include the deposit which is in any other case needed when you register directly with them, also a billing/support solution named ClientExec, which will connect your web site to the cPanel reseller account and that will make it easier to bill your customers and to provide them support through an inbuilt ticketing system. The full root-level access to the virtual server will enable you to do practically anything you would like, so starting and taking care of a prosperous website hosting business of your own will be a fast and uncomplicated project.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated server plans that we offer will enable you to launch your own website hosting company quickly. They offer more than enough processing power, physical memory and disk space to support a a large number of clients, regardless of the type of websites they run. You will also have root access to the server, which means that you can add any server-side application. Our plans include 3 different hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are excellent for your new hosting business, due to the fact that they have two different levels - client and reseller. When you acquire the server with cPanel, we will also provide you with a domain reseller account and a billing/support solution called ClientExec free of cost, therefore you will be completely independent and you will have full control over what's going on with your server and with your customers' sites. If you plan to use an alternative approach, on the other hand, DirectAdmin will enable you to have resellers of your own who can do the job of finding the end customers, while they pay for the reseller plan.
