If you get a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to use it not only to host your own sites, but also to resell website hosting packages to other people. This will help you make good money, because the number of people who build their first Internet site increases and the need for website hosting services is growing every single year. In addition to the server itself, you'll need a merchant account with some payment processor, which will allow you to accept payments online, and a payment app in order to link each of them. Using your own server means to have extra control compared to the standard hosting reseller programs. If, for example, a client wants to run some script which needs a specific application to be present on the server, there will not be a trouble to set it up on a virtual or a dedicated machine, but it is not possible to do that on a shared server where all reseller accounts are set up. With minimum effort and investment, you have the chance to start a successful hosting firm on your own and to become a part of the ever expanding website hosting market.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated server
plans that we provide will enable you to create your own web hosting company easily and quickly. They provide more than enough computing power, physical memory and disk space to support a very large number of customers, whatever the kind of sites they run. You'll also have root access to the server, which means that you will be able to add any server-side application. Our packages feature three different website hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are ideal for your new web hosting business, due to the fact that they have two separate levels - client and reseller. When you get the server with cPanel, we'll also supply you with a domain name reseller account and a billing/support solution named ClientExec for free, which means that you will be completely 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 a different approach, however, DirectAdmin will allow you to have resellers of your own who can take care of finding the end customers, while they pay you for the reseller package.
