If you obtain a virtual or a dedicated server, you can use it not just to host your own sites, but, in addition to resell website hosting packages to other people. This will help you make good money, as the number of people who build their first Internet site keeps growing and the need for web hosting services is growing each and every year. Aside from the server itself, you will also need a merchant account with a payment processor, that will allow you to accept payment transactions online, and a billing application to link the two of them. To use your own server means to have more control compared to the traditional website hosting reseller programs. If, for instance, a customer wishes to run some script which requires a specific application to be present on the server, there won't be a trouble to install it on a virtual or a dedicated machine, but it'll be impossible to do that on a shared server where all reseller accounts are set up. With minimal effort and investment, you have the option to start a successful hosting company of your own and to be a part of the ever-growing web hosting market.
Reselling Options in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated server
plans that we provide will enable you to create your own website hosting company quickly and easily. They come with ample computing power, physical memory and disk space to support a a large number of customers, whatever the kind of websites they run. You will also have root access to the server, which means that you will be able to add any server-side application. Our plans come with 3 separate web hosting Control Panels and two of them - cPanel and DirectAdmin, are more than appropriate for your new web hosting business, due to the fact that they have two separate levels - client and reseller. When you buy the server with cPanel, we'll also provide you with a domain name
reseller account plus a billing/support solution named ClientExec free of cost, so you'll be completely independent and you'll have full control over what is going on with the server and with your customers' Internet sites. If you intend to use another approach, however, DirectAdmin will enable you to have resellers of your own who can take care of finding the end customers, while they pay you for the reseller plan.
