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?

Game VPS

May 3, 2007

i want to say that at one point in time, powervps or solarvps installed gaming software, like half life, so well, you couls have a game server.

Are there any vps hosts that allow this? I couldnt find any info on those websites, but a couple years ago im sure i saw such a feature.

Also, if i do buy a vps or a dedicated server that allows me to use such gaming software, via ssh how would i accomplish the installation?

Me and 2-3 others have this game we'd like to put on a server, but because it's going to be a private server with only us 2-3 people ~ we were also wondering if the software could be installed on a cpanel/whm vps or server at the same time?

Need A UK VPS For Game Server

Sep 6, 2008

Hello all, First time poster on the forum and i hope you can all answer my questions, thanks.

About 2 weeks ago I bought a team fortress 2 gameserver from a provider in the U.K and it has been great and it was a good price.

A few days ago i was speaking to a friend and he suggested that i should use a VPS because it is cheaper and i could run maybe 2 32 man slot servers on a VPS.

I was just wondering if anyone has tried this, is it a good idea?, what is the cheapest UK VPS provider? i think easyspace is the best i could find.

I am currently paying 15 pound a month for a 20 man team fortress 2 server and i can get a 32 man for 24, so anything below that is great.

Many thanks all, and look forward to seeing the replies.

Game Servers On A VPS

Apr 2, 2009

Personally I would never follow this route (hosting gameserver(s) on a VPS), but maybe some people on these forums do and I'm quite interested in what these people run (game+slots), on what hardware/OS, at which host and their opinion about the performance of it.

Looking For Web Hosting For A Web Game

Oct 21, 2009

First I would like to start by explaining my past and current situation.

When I was in High School I created a web game called that was intended for me to learn how to Code PHP and to create things with a couple of friends.

However, within 3 days the game exploded and receiving large amounts of hits and users by nothing but word of mouth. Before I knew what to do, my host said the price of my next month was going to go up from $5 to $50, and at the time I knew nothing about web hosting and was making (barely) enough money from Google Ad-sense so I gladly paid them to continue working on the game.

As the site got larger, the host continued to ask for large amounts of money until I could no longer afford the game because the host was kicking me off of his hosting because I was simply taking up too much of his space.

(I was going to link my daily usage data here, but apparently I have to post 5 times first to add links.)

Now, there is more.

I am NOT hosting the same game, but I am expecting similar numbers just increased a bit higher with a few differences.

This game extensively uses PHP GD Image Functions to generate images for characters and map data. So I expect the server load to be much higher. But PHP GD Image Functions must be on the server, Which I do not anticipate to be a problem.

What is the recommended solution for web hosting? I live in a fairly remote area and could not host my own server, but I am afraid of being removed from a hosting plan again after what happened last time.

Game Servers FPS Way Too Low Need Help

Oct 26, 2006

Alright, I have been running game servers for about 8 months now, but I am having some issues with a new box I just ordered in Ny. I only have 1 server on it, which is a CS 1.6 server and it is getting HORRIBLE FPS. Now usually when I put a new server on a box it always gets constant fps, so if I set it to 500 it will pretty much stay at 500, this has been the case on 10+ boxes I have. This one is getting from about 100-300 with a few spikes to 500. Now as far as running the game server, I know what I am doing, however this must me an issue with the server.

It is a Dual Opteron 252 with 2gb's of ram.(Plenty to run a high fps server)

The only thing I can think of is maybe the timer set in the linux kernel is too low. If so how would I change this (Never done it before)

Anyone else have similar problems? Any ideas what could be the problem?

Game Server On VPS ...

Aug 18, 2008

I just got a dedicated server yesterday for my website. I originally had it on a VPS, but sharing the server with numerous other people bogged down the harddrive.

Anyway, I got a dedicated with a Quad-Core 2.5Ghz processor(Q9300), 150gb Raptor, 8 Gb Ram (Yes, Eight), 100Mb connection, on Windows Server 2008 Standard. (Server is at )

Well, it will be a few months before the website takes off to heights requiring this power. I just bought it now so I don't have to keep upgrading when hitting the ceiling.

Unfortunately, I'm paying $200 a month with not much action. However, windows 2008 comes with Hyper-V software, so I can run VPS's. I was thinking about selling like one super-powerful VPS (at least 4 gig ram dedicated) to someone who wants to start a game server. I'd ask just for like $50 bucks a month, which is pretty darn good for the server specs.

As this is not the offers forum, which I can't post in, I'm asking if these are good enough specs for someone to host a bomb game server on? Anyone know a forum where I could get some offers?
