Aside from hosting resource-demanding sites, there's one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, since a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you can generate website hosting packages and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses if you host your personal sites on the server as well, but you will also make a good profit by running a successful business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is that your customers will have much more resources and you can set up the server-side software which their websites may need to function efficiently. The latter isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you'll have some limitations in this regard.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Servers
When you use a dedicated server from us, you'll get everything you need to start a prosperous web hosting business very quickly. We have several different packages, in order to give you a chance to select the most appropriate one in terms of the system resources that you will need and the initial budget that you have in the beginning. All of the website hosting servers provide full root access, that will enable you to set up anything your customers may need for their websites. Two of the three web hosting Control Panel alternatives that we offer are suitable for creating a reseller business - DirectAdmin and cPanel. They both feature user and reseller levels and different advantages. If you get the server with DirectAdmin, you can't only have direct clients, but also sub-resellers. When you buy the server with cPanel, on the other hand, you will obtain an eNom domain name reseller account and the ClientExec billing and support software, which will enable you to offer ticket support and to accept web-based payments.
