In addition to hosting resource-demanding websites, there is another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to launch your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, since a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to create hosting package deals then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you will also make a decent profit by owning a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is that your customers will have additional system resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software which their Internet sites may need to work properly. The latter isn't possible with a shared hosting reseller program, because you'll have certain limitations in this regard.
Reselling Options in VPS Servers
The Linux VPS servers that we provide come with several web hosting Control Panels to choose from and two of them are ideal for creating your own hosting company, due to the fact that they have a client as well as a reseller side. DirectAdmin and cPanel are one of the most popular Control Panels nowadays and they'll allow you to set up everything right away. All cPanel-equipped servers feature two additional bonuses free of charge - a domain name reseller account with eNom - one of the largest registrars, which doesn't include the deposit that's in any other case needed if you subscribe directly with them, and a billing/support solution called ClientExec, which will connect your web site to the cPanel reseller account and that will make it easier to bill your clients and to provide them support via a built-in ticketing system. The full root-level access to the virtual server will allow you to do virtually anything you'd like, so starting and maintaining a profitable hosting business of your own will be a quick and simple project.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Servers
We offer powerful dedicated servers that will enable you to launch a reseller business in just a few basic steps. The packages are different with regard to price and system resources, and you will be able to pick the best one depending on how many clients you want or expect to have. Since you will have root-level access, you can adjust any setting or set up any server-side software you need. There're three hosting Control Panels you're able to select from on your order page - DirectAdmin, cPanel and Hepsia. You can use the first two, as they have both customer and reseller back-ends, and with DirectAdmin you can even have resellers of your own. cPanel does not come with this functionality, but with every single dedicated server obtained with this Control Panel we provide two freebies - a domain name reseller account with eNom, that's one of the largest domain registrars out there, and ClientExec, a powerful billing and support platform that will allow you to provide ticket support, to set up hosting packages and collect payments online.
