Hosting websites on the internet can be a lucrative business venture. However trying to setup a web hosting company from scratch can be quite a bit of work and also quite a bit of money.
One of the biggest problems of trying to start a web hosting company right now is that much of the good web domain names on the internet has already taken.
If we own a company and need to buy an IP address block, then we might have a chance of getting a few IP addresses, but getting good enough domain name to create a web hosting company on our own is very hard to do.
Start Reseller Hosting
One alternative to trying to start a web hosting company from scratch is to become a reseller web hosting company. Many companies on the internet offer to resell address space to companies so they can become a reseller web hosting company.
Becoming a reseller web hosting company has many benefits including the availability of address space, specialized tools, and built-in control panel support.
Many reseller web hosting companies offer quite a bit of space so that we can host many different web sites on our own. Most of the time this space is very hard to come by if we are not buying the space from a reseller web hosting company.
Hosting companies usually offer many tools to help our clients build their websites. Some of these businesses offer Front Page extensions so that clients can use FrontPage to build their websites.
Some companies offer different pre-made PHP scripts to help our customers build their websites as well. Another important tool is the ability for our clients to use a MySQL database to store information and authenticate against on their website.
The best advantage of using a reseller web hosting company is the built-in control panel support that is supplied by many of these companies.
Management control panel to help create different websites for our clients, and then our customers also have a control panel to help administer their websites.
Using control panel by company, makes it much easier for anyone, even someone with limited technical knowledge, to create a website.
