Other than hosting resource-demanding sites, there's a further reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as an increasing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to make hosting deals then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own sites on the server too, but you can also make a decent profit by running a successful business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for example 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 customers will have additional system resources and you can install the server-side software which their websites may need to work efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you'll have certain limitations in this regard.

Reselling Options in Dedicated Hosting

The dedicated server plans that we provide will allow you to start your own web hosting company easily and quickly. They offer ample processing power, physical memory and disk space to support a a large number of clients, whatever the kind of websites they run. You will also have root access to the server, which means that you'll be able to add any server-side app. Our plans include three different website hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are ideal for your new website hosting company, because they have two separate levels - client and reseller. When you purchase the server with cPanel, we will also provide you with a domain reseller account plus a billing/support solution named ClientExec totally free, which means that you will be completely independent and you'll have full control over what is going on with your server and with the customers' Internet sites. If you intend to take an alternative 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 plan.
