    You will also need a billing and automation system. Most hosts use WHMCS. Take a look at that. You can simply install it , setup your account and packages and be ready to go. Then you can also look around for WHMCS templates to change the look of your site.

    A template is typically a pre-made design. Some are unique (only you using it) while some are not (many using it).
    They are typically cheaper than buying a custom-made design.
    You can buy a template from places like ThemeForest.

    You will also need billing automation. As RDO said most hosts use WHMCS - your host might also be able to offer WHMCS.
    Templates for WHMCS exist, but my personal suggestion is just buy any template, and get it integrated to your WHMCS.

    The theme with function for hosting website. If you search on google, you will see several sites offering paid themes/templates to use. You don't have to code; you just install and use it.

    I was going to elaborate but looks like the other posters beat me to it

    Themeforest is a good place to start your search. Look for a theme that's responsive and is integrated with WHMCS (if that's the billing software you want to use).

    Yes you will find many templates for WHMCS at themeforest and codecanyon. But make a good business plan before starting a project like that. There are so many offer in web hosting and so many webmaster with awesome skills to manage a business like that. You have to be sure you can really make money with it.

    All web hosting providers are using these themes and bought from there?

    I saw more web hosting sites are using same themes, I thought it has a place to provide this.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi @David Makogon
    Reseller is a good option, it will help you alot if you are start up and doesnt cost much and has much more features than you can offer if you were to use VPS/Dedicated to start hosting company.

    In regards to building the website, you can always purchase a ready theme or just create a HTML template. (as this is the front page, it just needs to look pretty and attractive to customers e.g. user friendly, easy navigation etc)

    for the backend (automation service) i suggest you use WHMCS, its very easy to use and has tones of features and plugins if needed.

    Let me know if you need any help in regards to starting your hosting, Ill gladly help.

    I need detailed steps to create websites for selling hosting packages.

    I would like to learn to create the website although I know it's difficult to compete with other hosting companies out there today.

    If I buy a HTML template then it will consume more time to make it as dynamic site. I don't think this is a good idea.

    99% of the HTML templates on envato.com are dynamic already, all you have to do is add content and point the domain to the right places however no problem you can also pick a Wordpress template (most come with ready WHMCS templates too)

    in regards to Creating hosting pakcages its very simply done via WHM and WHMCS. you would create packages on WHMCS and the same ones on WHM then link the two.

    I will gladly walk you through it once you get your reseller as it would be easier (since you can see everything ill talk about infront of you)

    competing, yes its hard which is why many do not start from VPS/dedicated (costs alot and you will loss money for a long time), as if you started with a reseller you wont have the costs issues (after 3/4 customers you will be making profit).

    No, as you will not edit your offers daily, a good html template and a CRM solution like WHCMS or another is easier to setup than a WordPress or any other dynamic website.

    I need detailed steps to create websites for selling hosting packages.
    The first step is to learn how create a website. But you can start in html, it's not required to have a fully optimized php website to start.

    I'd just signup to a provider who offers WordPress via Softaculoous or includes the new SiteMush Website Builder and build your own web design. Alternatively, I know of some good web designers who can make you a custom web design if you're interested, if so, just PM ME.

    Another option is not to have anything fancy and just use WHMCS itself to sell the plans to friends and family, and when it starts to do well, you can then think about reinvesting the money by spending it on a better web design, etc.

    I see so much of these "template" sites these days. To be honest if your going to be a hosting provider you should have the technical knowledge to put your own website together.
    Knowledge of web design will also help you support customers, I'm always answering little questions about CSS PHP and HTML that most hosts would not even help with, even tho I don't have to and customers are always grateful for the help I would think if a hosting provider cannot even make their own site what other technical knowledge are the lacking, it's just not good for the image.

    But if you are going to go the template route I'd pick a front end for WHMCS over a wordpress solution.

    I mean to be fair, some of the biggest providers use templates, simply because they don't want to put money and resources in putting a website together. Sorry to single out a provider as an example, but BudgetVM (part of Enzu) is a fairly large provider and their website is a wrapbootstrap template.

    Hi David,

    In my opinion if you want to customise your site to be unique from the rest of the other site, you can draw out your site. Produce your own control panel or integrate other control panel within your website.

    This is really hard to explain on one forum post. In fact this can be a one chapter book. I can however simplify this down into a general term. All control panel must interact with your browser through POST and GET request. Thus if you can program your site to use PHP, Ajax, Perl, CGI, Python. You can have a website script automatically patch into any control panel platform and create or delete account on criteria. This is limitless. You can secure the connection between your website and the control panel server using SSL. If you are more advance you can use IPSec tunnelling which will produce double level security. However this will require a lot of configuration. This however can cost you zero dollar on setup if you know how to do it all.

    The other viable solution is always, purchasing a control panel software from someone. The popular packages that I seen lot of people mention are Cpanel or Plesk for server management. WHCM for billing or you can even use Box Billing, to be honest any digital billing software will work as long as it can let you have a hooks call depend on how the user are interacted.

    The other solution are always that if you purchase a re-seller account, the hosting provider above you probably offer a white-branded solution. Which mean you can give them a template and they will customise the platform for you base on the template. However these type of account about 10 years ago can cost up to $700 dollar. It must be a lot cheaper now since everyone compete for client base and auto process by script also made everyone life easier.

    You can use a template with WHMCS or similar, or you can learn to code it yourself. You could also hire a dedicated team of web developers if you can't do it yourself, this last option would probably get pricey.
