If you obtain a virtual or a dedicated server, you can use it not only to host your sites, but, in addition to resell hosting plans to various other people. This will allow you to make good money, as the number of people who build their first website increases and the need for hosting services is growing every year. Aside from the server itself, you'll also need a merchant account with a payment processor, that will enable you to accept payment transactions online, as well as a billing app to link the two of them. To use your own server means having extra control when compared to the standard web hosting reseller programs. If, for example, a customer wants to run some script that requires a particular application to be present on the server, there won't be any problem to set it up on a virtual or a dedicated machine, but it'll be impossible to do that on a shared server where all reseller accounts are created. With minimal effort and investment, you'll have the option to start a successful hosting company of yours and to become a part of the ever expanding website hosting market.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated server plans that we offer will allow you to create your own website hosting company quickly and easily. They come with a lot of computing power, physical memory and disk space to support a numerous clients, regardless of the kind of Internet sites they run. You'll also have root access to the server, which means that you will be able to add any server-side app. Our plans include three different hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are perfect for your new hosting business, because they have two separate levels - client and reseller. If you buy the server with cPanel, we will also give you a domain name reseller account and a billing/support solution called ClientExec free of cost, which means that you'll be totally independent and you will have full control over what is going on with your server and with the customers' sites. If you'd like to take a different approach, on the other hand, DirectAdmin will enable 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.
