Apart from hosting resource-demanding websites, there is one more reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as more and more people and businesses start their web presence, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to create web hosting deals then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your own websites on the server as well, but you can also make a decent profit by owning a successful business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as 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 usage of a regular reseller program is that your customers will have extra resources and you can install the server-side software which their sites may need to operate effectively. The latter isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you will have certain restrictions in this regard.
Reselling Options in VPS Web Hosting
The Linux VPS web hosting services that we offer include several web hosting Control Panels to pick from and two of them are perfect for creating your own hosting company, as they have a customer and a reseller side. DirectAdmin and cPanel are one of the most preferred Control Panels to choose from and they'll allow you to set up everything in no time. All the cPanel-equipped servers come with two more bonuses free of charge - a domain reseller account with eNom - one of the largest registrars, which doesn't involve the deposit that's otherwise required when you subscribe directly with them, plus a billing/support solution named ClientExec, that will connect your website to the cPanel reseller account and that will help you bill your customers and to supply them support through an integrated ticketing system. The full root-level access to the virtual server will allow you to do pretty much anything you'll need, so starting and managing a profitable website hosting company of your own is a fast and uncomplicated project.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The dedicated server plans that we provide will allow you to create your own website hosting company fast and easy. They offer ample processing power, physical memory and disk space to support a a large number of clients, whatever the type of sites 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 come with 3 separate web hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more than appropriate for your new hosting business, since 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 in addition to a billing/support solution named ClientExec free of cost, therefore you will be fully independent and you'll have full control over what's going on with the server and with your customers' websites. If you'd like to take a different approach, on the other hand, DirectAdmin will allow you to have resellers of your own who can do the job of finding the end customers, while they pay you for the reseller package.
