Other than hosting resource-demanding sites, there's one more reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, considering that more and more people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you'll be able to make hosting deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own 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 Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need so as to function properly. The latter isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you will have some limitations in this regard.
Reselling Options in VPS
If you obtain one of the powerful virtual private servers plans which we offer, we will ensure that it is really easy for you to launch a reseller business. We supply two web hosting Control Panels which will allow you to do this - cPanel and DirectAdmin. They both include a reseller and a client level, so you're able to create plans and start selling them in no time. For all the cPanel-equipped servers, we also offer a free domain reseller account with eNom, one of the major domain suppliers these days, which will save you the cash which you will have to deposit in case you sign up with them directly. What's more, we will give you the powerful ClientExec - an all-in-one billing and support solution that functions with all the major payment processors. It'll allow you to make invoices, to set package deal prices and to provide ticket support to all of your clients with ease. All VPS packages come with full root-level access, that provides you with full control over the server and will enable you to start and maintain a successful web hosting reseller business.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated server plans that we provide will enable you to launch your own hosting company quickly. They come with a lot of computing power, physical memory and disk space to support a numerous clients, no matter the kind 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 plans include 3 different web hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more than appropriate for your new hosting business, as they have two separate levels - client and reseller. If you buy the server with cPanel, we will also provide you with a domain reseller account along with a billing/support solution named ClientExec at zero cost, which means that you will be fully independent and you will have full control over what's going on with the server and with your customers' websites. If you intend 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 package.
