Are you a web developer, systems integrator or web design firm that wishes to include web hosting as an additional service for your customers? A reseller web hosting plan could be perfect for you. It is easy for you to represent your web based business with a more personal touch with a great Reseller Hosting account. Tapping into a niche market that can potentially return 1333% profit to your business, that’s right it’s not a typo, let me explain how.
Firstly with a Reseller Hosting account you don’t need any of the out of pocket costs of setting up server equipment, and you don’t need to know a hell of a lot about managing hardware, software or trouble shooting connectivity problems. Most Reseller Hosting account provides support to the Resellers directly to you only; however should you need to seek support on behalf of one of your customers they surely will be able to assist you in doing so. Some providers offer white label support services where they act on your company’s behalf to your customers, at additional costs.
Purchasing a Reseller Hosting account on a monthly or yearly base charge allows you to easily and centrally manage multiple web hosting accounts and domains via a web interface control panel such as CPanel/WHM or Plesk. CPanel/WHM or Plesk are well known web control panels for Web Hosting services, however some providers may use a custom system or program. If you have never used these programs, your provider will assist with setting up your initial account and there is a wealth of information and tutorials available for you to get up to speed on the basics. Your Reseller Hosting account should include one single account wide license for the use of the control panel interface to support your customers, be sure to check up on that.
Your reseller web hosting account will have a limited quota for disk space and bandwidth sold to you in bulk, which you can divide into smaller Web Hosting Plans with limits more suited for Business and Personal web hosting as a supplementary business product or service.
For example a Reseller Web Hosting Package of 4000mb Disk Space and 200G Bandwidth divided into 40 Blocks of Web Hosting Plans of – 100mb disk space and 5G bandwidth – based on an estimated monthly cost of $20 per plan; Equals a return of $800 net a month before deducting any Reseller Host Provider charges.
The above is just an example, you set your own limits and pricing structure within the means of your business margins and target. Boosting business productivity and increasing your online marketing and advertising presence is simple if your providers supplies white label branding through the use of generic name servers, host names and private IP’s effectively making them un unseen presence to your customer base.
However if and when you outgrow the reseller environment, you can simply upgrade to a Virtual Private Server (VPS), Managed Server or Dedicated Server to further expand your Empire.
