Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there is another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, because more and more people and businesses start their online presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you can make hosting offers and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal websites on the server too, but you can also make a good profit by running a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor for instance 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 additional resources and you'll be able to set up the server-side software which their sites may need in order to operate properly. The latter will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you'll have specific limitations in this regard.

Reselling Options in VPS Hosting

The Linux VPS hosting that we offer feature several web hosting Control Panels to select from and two of them are ideal for starting your own web hosting business, as they have a client plus a reseller side. DirectAdmin and cPanel are one of the most popular Control Panels available and they will allow you to set up everything right away. All cPanel-equipped servers come with two additional bonuses for free - a domain reseller account with eNom - one of the leading registrars, which does not include the deposit that is normally required in case you register directly with them, and a billing/support solution named ClientExec, that will connect your web site to the cPanel reseller account and that will allow you to bill your clients and to offer them support via a built-in ticketing system. The full root-level accessibility to the virtual server will allow you to do practically anything you would like, so launching and taking care of a profitable web hosting company of your own will be a quick and simple project.

Reselling Options in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated server plans that we provide will enable you to start your own website hosting company quickly. They feature a lot of processing power, physical memory and disk space to support a very large number of customers, whatever the kind of websites they run. You'll also have root access to the server, so that you can add any server-side app. Our plans feature 3 different website hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are suitable for your new website hosting business, because they have two separate levels - client and reseller. When you get the server with cPanel, we will also supply you with a domain reseller account and a billing/support solution named ClientExec as a gift, which means that you will be fully independent and you will have full control over what's going on with the server and with your customers' sites. If you wish to use another approach, however, DirectAdmin will allow you to have resellers of your own who can do the job of finding the end customers, while they pay for the reseller plan.
