I have found a market and I have got a lot of customers that are waiting for my "specialty" and to hire my hosting, but the thing is I don't know what to choose.
These are the different hosting choices (I think):
* Reseller hosting
* Hire a VPS and host from there
* Hire a Dedicated server and host from there
* Buy a dedicated server and co-locate it
* Buy a dedicated server and manage everything myself
I guess those are the options, am I right? Or are there any other options?
So yeah, now these are the questions I have, which one of those are the best and in which way should I go? If I buy a dedicated (or hire) would I need to do everything myself? What is it that you exactly have to do? Install apache and WHCMS? I see that WHCMS is included in hostgators servers but I didn't see a cpanel and cpanel itself costs like 450$ for a year..
I have around 440 customers waiting and these are the plans they would like:
210 * 10GB space/100GB Bandwidth
93 * 5GB Space/50GB Bandwidth
137 * 1GB Space/10GB Bandwidth
I am going to offer them something noones else has and that is why I have so many that would like to purchase from me.
What suits me best? What do I do when I expand? I was thinking of reseller because it seems to be the cheapest and easiest but the thing is it would quickly run up and I asked the hostgator support if I can have like two diamond reseller hosting packages linked into one account but they said no..
And another thing, say that I buy 2TB from any of the options (reseller, dedi or whatever) and I have WHCMS installed, can I then register accounts with like 10GB each and have like 250 of those accounts (total 2.5TB) on the 2TB disk? Because we all know people don't use up everything.. Is that possible or does WHCMS only allow what you actually have? (So the max you can write onto accounts is 2TB in total..)
Oh well, please help me.. I'm new to this forum
Excuse me for my bad english.
So basically, can I fill up a disk with accounts that has more disk and what type of hosting fits my needs best?
