Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, since more and more people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you will be able to create website hosting offers and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a very good profit by owning a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, plus 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 an ordinary reseller program is that your customers will have more system resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need to function effectively. The latter will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Servers
We supply powerful dedicated web hosting plans that will allow you to start a reseller business in just a few basic steps. The packages are different when it comes to price and system resources, and you'll be able to pick the perfect one depending on the number of clients you want or expect to have. Since you'll have root-level access, you can change any setting or set up any server-side software you want. There're three web hosting Control Panels you will be able to select from on your order page - DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. You can use the first two, since they have both client and reseller back-ends, and with DirectAdmin you may even have resellers of your own. cPanel doesn't have this functionality, but with each and every dedicated server acquired with this Control Panel we supply two freebies - a domain name reseller account with eNom, which is one of the largest domain registrars out there, and ClientExec, a powerful billing and support platform which will enable you to provide ticket support, to set up hosting packages and collect payments over the Internet.
