Have you ever wondered how you can start your own web hosting company? Are you a web designer that needs more features or more control in the web hosting you resell to your clients? Don't yet need a dedicated server? Then a private label virtual server is your solution. With a private label virtual server you can set your own prices to control your profits, and earn unlimited income. There are a lot of companies on the internet where you can register for a hosting reseller account. But do your homework well, otherwise you might regret it later on. Do some research before you register with any hosting company.
Check for how long they are in business and if they are reliable. You do not want your customers to join today and leave tomorrow. One big issue. PLEASE REGISTER YOUR OWN DOMAIN NAME. You must have full control over it.
YOU must be the owner of the domain. YOU must be the administrative contact for it. YOU must be the technical contact for it. To run your own reseller hosting company is like running a normal website. Believe me, not much experience is required. Since you are responsible for billing your customers, you ultimately determine the profit margin and manage all your customers accounts through one main control panel.
You are responsible for marketing, sales, billing and support activity for your customers. You retain the ownership of your customers. The hosting company has no contact with your customers. Dedicated Server or Reseller Account: Dedicated server or reseller account? That is the question. Most people who are ready to start a web hosting business ask this question.
There are however different benefits for each solution. You should choose a reseller account if you are a new business owner who does not know how to manage a dedicated server. Managing a dedicated server can be time consuming if you are not proficient at server management. With a reseller account a team of experts manages the server that your web sites are hosted on. A reseller account is also a fraction of the cost of a dedicated server. Usually a reseller account is a good place to start because you can upgrade to a dedicated server at any time.
Another benefit of a reseller hosting account is that you have no software or hardware maintenance costs. In-house managed solutions require the purchase of hardware (and more as your business grows), maintenance contracts, and software ( with its related maintenance.) Using Private Label Virtual Servers, you don't have to purchase hardware or software, regardless of the number of customers you have. You buy wholesale and sell retail, thereby ensuring your monthly profit margin.
No unpredictable costs like professional fees or hardware costs (should something go wrong with your in-house service). When your business gets successful, there won't be any additional data center, network, hardware, or software costs. A virtual private server can run its own full-fledged operating system, and each server can be independently rebooted.
This usually gives you root-level access to the hosting companies machine, so that you can install almost any software that runs on the chosen OS.
