Windows Reselling

Nov 17, 2008

Windows reselling is more complicated to run than Linux one and starting it I'd like to have it from the company that has a quality support team.

I have heard that is one of such companies.

VPS Reselling

Oct 26, 2008

Sister company recently asked me to start offering VPS reseller accounts as part of our product range but after researching how other companies are doing this, i fear i may have gotten this wrong.

My thinking on the VPS reselling process was as such, like a reseller account, as in, the customer buys a chunk of space/ram/bandwidth and then cuts it up into however they like and sells it at profit.

However, i have realised this is not the case with other companies, they give you a discount per how many VPS's you order, or do the whole affiliate referral scheme.

We have the "advantage" of using HyperVM where we can setup clients to have a certain amount of ram/clients/ip's/bandwidth/disk space, hell, they can even setup vps's accross different nodes. Im sorry if this sounds like a sales post, the main part im trying to get at is, why do others companies not provide this? Am i missing an important security issue?

VPS For Reselling

Dec 4, 2007

I've noticed a lot of VPS hosts that use other control panels besides cpanel, but what I'm looking to do is get a reseller account and have WHM/Cpanel on it. I haven't seen a host offer to install this for me when setting up the VPS, are there any companies that do this?

No Reselling On VPS

May 26, 2007

I just contacted support at my current VPS provider about an issue I had when setting up a reseller account and here the (partial) reply I received.


You are reselling? You are not allowed to resell with the package you are on. VPS packages can't handle this much as its still a shared environment.

Supposedly the server is a Dual Xeon 3.0ghz with 2mb cache, 8gb RAM, 15,000 RPM SCSI drives in RAID 5 and hotswap, triple redundant power supplies and it can't handle reselling? WTF?

I'm not even actually reselling as the reseller account I setup was for my wife so that she can manage her own domains!

I think the VPS package maybe a rip anyways at $114/month:
20 GB HD, 2048 MB (384 MB Guaranteed), 300GB/Month, Cpanel w/ WHM, Full Management, Monitoring, Root Access, Daily Backup

The only reason I even am using this particular host is that I used to have a dedicated with them and was looking to downsize due to some cash-flow problems.

Looking On Reselling VPS Packages

May 17, 2009

I am looking on reselling VPS packages, i have had a look around and the prices seem very high and the commission they offer is quite low.

Preferably would like sell US and EU vps packages, so a company who does have datacentres in both continents will be ideal.

Reseller Account - But Not Reselling

Jul 5, 2007

I currently have a series of websites hosted with HostGator. The thing is, having a series of shared hosting plans starts to add up after a while. What I was considering was purchasing a reseller account (which will save us about $15/month) and then just hosting all our websites from there, obviously, not reselling the plans, just using them internally. For the savings, it seems like a logical thing to do. When we purchased shared plans, I bought bigger plans than we need, expecting the sites to grow (which some have, others have not).

Has anyone done this? Do you suggest it? Would there be a better way than buying a reseller account (We can't afford a dedicated server quite yet)?

Is Colocation More Expensive Than Reselling Dedi-boxes?

Feb 18, 2007

I currently run 16 boxes which I rent from various data centers, mark-up and resell. Conventional wisdom says that it's time for me to start colocating my own servers. I've got approval for capital (loan) so it's no problem for me to just buy these boxes and colo them. But... how the hell does anyone afford it?

I mean, I can get a cabinet in H.E. with 10Mbps burst to 100Mbps for $600/mo (through EGI). Which is an insanely good deal until you realize that it only includes 15amps of power. So (I think) that means that I can really only run about 15 or 20 Celerons at the most. So much for filling up the rack.

Optimistically, if I can run 20 Celerons which I've priced at about $700 each including shipping -- plus a switch, KVM, spare parts and bank interest over 24 months -- that's about $800/mo for the servers plus $600 for the cab, plus about $200/mo for remote hands in case I need the DC guys to do something. I'm looking at about $80/mo per server which I have to pay whether it's rented or not.

I can easily find celerons for $80/mo which include some level of support and I can very easily cancel whenever my client does and buy a fresh new one whenever I get a new client.

I was all excited to go colo -- but the numbers don't add up. What am I missing here? What's the big advantage to all the extra hassle of owning your own?

Linux Or Windows

Apr 17, 2007

I wanted to ask you guys why some hosting companies ask you if you want either linux or windows when you are buying a hosting plan?....does it have anything do to with the way the control panel works or something like that?. I have created a few websites on a host that has linux on its general server info as its operating system. But I have winxp not linux installed on my pc. So my question is what difference it makes if the server is using linux or windows and whats the best choice when you buy a hosting plan.

Linux VPS Vs. Windows VPS

Jul 24, 2007

I'm thinking of upgrading my shared hosting account to a VPS account, but I do not know which to go for. Right now I'm using Linux for my website. I do understand that there are differences between Linux and Windows. What I don't understand is why would someone choose Linux over Windows or Windows over Linux. If I understand correctly, I would be able to install applications such as mIRC on windows via Remote Desktop. That's something I like. However, I never controlled my website on a Windows computer before.

So basically what are the differences between Linux VPS and Windows VPS?

Rackspace: Windows Vs Linux

Mar 7, 2008

so we are in a situation where we need to upgrade our hosting situation. We are pretty excited about Rackspace, but there is one fairly large issue that we need to overcome.

We currently run a Windows based server with a MySql Db. Rackspace (due to contractual deals) do not support that combination. If you want MySql Db then you have to go with the Linux product.

So, i can't very easily change my db from MySql to MSSql. Is there issues from going from a Windows Server to Linux Server? I have never dealt with a Linux Server, but the good thing is, the folks at Rackspace seem very helpful and would probably be able to step me through the processes.

what are your thoughts? should i switch Server types, or Database Types?

Should I Switch From Windows To Linux

Mar 24, 2009

I am not a technical person but am a sole business owner trying to muddle through this. Your help is much appreciated.

I want to combine my www with non www site via a 301 permanent redirect. My goal is to combine my page links in hopes that one day Google will increase my page ranking (which is sadly at 1). I don't think that combining them now (about 100 links each) will do anything to my PR but I do want it set up properly now so it's all set.

I have been reading all over the Internet on how to do this and working with my site host: Go Daddy. It's been a struggle but I believe that because I'm on a shared Windows server, there is not a solution for me to do this. If I was on a dedicated server I could do it through IIS but that option is not available for those on a shared server.

A posting I read from someone else who is also on Go Daddy (on another site) said he went and transferred his site from Windows to Linux and then was able to do the 301 redirect.

I don't understand what Windows, Linux, Apache, etc. means. My site is very simple: advertisingspark dot com. Can I transfer to Linux? Should I transfer to Linux or Apache?

Is this going to be too complicated for me? Or should I have someone else host my site? My annual fee is due in about a month so it's a good time for me to switch if I should.

I don't know if it is relevant but I had a website designer create my site and then I edit it myself in a cheap editing tool. I know basic HTML (I'm sure my designer is cringing!) If I switch to Linux or Apache, can I no longer work in html files?

Windows Vs Linux Hosting ..?

Sep 28, 2009

a speaker at a meet-up stated that the only reason Linux is a more popular server platform is that kids starting hosting companies do not need to pay for the license...

whereas college educated techies prefer the windows platform for their servers..

So I thought I would get some opinions from the pro's... which is the overall best server platform

Windows... or Linux
