I have a few questions about “reselling” from my DreamHost account.
To start with, please do not ask me why I want to resell, or warn me that it’s a stupid thing to do, and that I’ll need to monitor each and every site hosted. I’m well aware of that (and well aware that if a user violates DH’s ToS, I’m liable and could lose all access).
Here’s what I’m wondering:
Is it possible to “mirror” DH’s nameservers, i.e. by a custom A record? I understand a reverse lookup will still show the IP as NSx.DREAMHOST.COM
Any software recommended to help with reselling? i.e. accounting, sign up, control panel-esque, ticketing, etc…
Anyone out there reselling that has specific suggestions on how to handle the whole rebranding issue (I know it’s not possible to rebrand DH’s panel, etc… but surely there are ways to minimize the amount of inclusion of DH’s name and logo, and still get things done easily (in the eyes of customers)).
My intention is to offer accounts with specific options to a niche group. I believe with that, customers will be more willing to wait a few hours for their account to be set up, or wait 24 hours for new email addresses, subdomains, domains, etc… to be activated. I’m just curious how others handle those issues.
