In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you can make hosting offers and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a great profit by having a prosperous 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, and 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 clients will have additional resources and you're able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need in order to function effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you will have some restrictions in this regard.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated server plans that we supply will allow you to launch your own website hosting company fast and easy. They offer more than enough computing power, physical memory and disk space to support a a large number of clients, regardless of the kind of Internet sites they run. You will also have root access to the server, which means that you'll be able to add any server-side application. Our packages feature 3 different website hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are suitable for your new hosting business, because they have two separate levels - client and reseller. If you order the server with cPanel, we'll also provide you with a domain name reseller account in addition to a billing/support solution called ClientExec at no cost, therefore you'll be totally independent and you'll have full control over what's going on with your server and with the customers' sites. If you'd like to use another 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 package.
