If you get a virtual or a dedicated server, you can use it not only to host your own websites, but also to resell website hosting packages to other people. This will allow you to make good money, because the number of people who build their first website increases and the demand for hosting services is growing each and every year. In addition to the server itself, you will also need a merchant account with some payment processor, which will enable you to accept transactions online, and a billing application to link the two of them. Using your own server means to have extra control when compared to the traditional hosting reseller programs. If, for example, a client has to run some script which needs a particular app to be present on the server, there will not be a problem to install it on a virtual or a dedicated machine, but it will be not possible to do that on a shared server where all reseller accounts are created. With minimum effort and investment, you will have the opportunity to start a successful hosting firm on your own and to be a part of the ever expanding hosting market.
Reselling Options in VPS Hosting
The Linux VPS hosting packages which we offer include several website hosting Control Panels to select from and two of them are appropriate for creating your own website hosting company, as they have a customer as well as a reseller side. DirectAdmin and cPanel are among the most widely used Control Panels in existence and they'll allow you to set up everything very quickly. All of the cPanel-equipped servers feature two additional bonuses for free - a domain name reseller account with eNom - one of the largest registrars, which doesn't include the deposit which is normally needed when you register directly with them, plus a billing/support solution named ClientExec, that will connect your Internet site to the cPanel reseller account and that will make it easier to bill your clients and to offer them support via an incorporated ticketing system. The full root-level access to the virtual server will allow you to do practically anything you'd like, so creating and managing a profitable web hosting firm of your own is a quick and easy project.
