Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you can make web hosting packages and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a decent profit by running a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the connection between the reseller 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 web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is that your customers will have additional resources and you can set up the server-side software which their websites may need so as to work effectively. The latter will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have certain limitations in this regard.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated server plans that we provide will allow you to launch your own hosting company quickly and easily. They come with a lot of processing power, physical memory and disk space to support a numerous clients, whatever the type of sites they run. You'll also have root access to the server, so you will be able to add any server-side app. Our packages include 3 different hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more than appropriate for your new website hosting business, due to the fact that they have two separate levels - client and reseller. If you order the server with cPanel, we'll also supply you with a domain name reseller account along with a billing/support solution called ClientExec at no cost, therefore you will be totally independent and you will have full control over what's going on with your server and with your customers' sites. If you'd like to use an alternative approach, on the other hand, DirectAdmin will enable you to have resellers of your own who can take care of finding the end customers, while they pay you for the reseller plan.
