Other than hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to start your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, since a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to generate website hosting packages and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you will also make a great profit by operating a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is that your customers will have extra system resources and you'll be able to set up the server-side software which their sites may need so as to operate properly. The latter will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have some limitations in this regard.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Web Hosting
The dedicated server packages that we supply will allow you to launch your own web hosting company fast and easy. They come with ample computing power, physical memory and disk space to support a very large number of customers, whatever the type of websites they run. You will also have root access to the server, so that you will be able to add any server-side application. Our packages include 3 separate web hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are suitable for your new website hosting business, as they have two different levels - client and reseller. If you purchase the server with cPanel, we'll also give you a domain name reseller account plus a billing/support solution named ClientExec free of charge, so you'll be totally independent and you'll have full control over what is going on with the server and with your customers' sites. If you'd like to use a different approach, on the other hand, DirectAdmin will allow you to have resellers of your own who can take care of finding the end customers, while they pay you for the reseller plan.
