Reseller Hosting Plans

Comments Off on Reseller Hosting Plans

Reseller hosting plans are increasing in popularity.  The reason for this is that users wish to make a quick profit.  There are methods and business plans that can enable users to make profit, but one should be cautious when entering the market as it is competitive.  One type of reseller hosting plan is that of dedicated reseller hosting.  This is a good option for the serious reseller host.

What is a dedicated reseller hosting plan?

Dedicated hosting plans are plans that are increasingly popular.  One client will lease an entire server from a hosting company.  The client has the server entirely to themselves; there are no other clients that share the same server.  This type of webhosting is the most expensive, but it is also the most advantageous, due mainly to increased security.  Dedicated hosting plans will keep clients’ data secure on a private server.  Dedicated hosting plans are popular with large companies with large amounts of private data.  Companies don’t want to jeopardize their data and will therefore invest in more secure internet planning.

What can dedicated hosting plans provide to the reseller?

Clients can choose dedicated or semi-dedicated plans.  Resellers can resell to other users under their own private company name.  Most dedicated reseller hosting plans will come with advanced reseller software.  This will enable users to manage their hosting service better.  Generally, there are no setup fees.  Customers are provided with full root access, an OS and control panel, installations instruction, hosting support, and access to the customer support service department.

Disk space allowance and bandwidth

Dedicated hosting is popular due to the large amount of disk space granted to the user.  On average, dedicated hosting accounts come with more than enough disk space.  If your hosting company provides you with 2 terabytes, that should be more than enough.  Some dedicated reseller plans are geared toward clients who wish to host large community portals or a large web company.  Some hosting companies offer about 2000 GB of bandwidth per month.  It is important to understand what the hosting company is offering in terms of bandwidth, transfer usage, and disk space in order to provide your own customers with a reliable server.

How much RAM do you need?

Dedicated resellers can sell any type of hosting plan they desire, such as shared, dedicated, or VPS.  Dedicated servers provide adequate amounts of RAM.  Even the most resource hungry applications will be able to work on the amount of RAM provided, making the server run faster and more efficiently.

Wholesale price

Clients can buy dedicated server plans for wholesale prices.  Even if resellers are not successful in making a sale or profit, they can continue to purchase expensive dedicated hosting plans at budget prices.

Software

Reseller plans are designed for both individuals and big businesses.  Most parent hosting services will package plans that incorporate Core 2 Duo and XEON platforms to provide processing power for multimedia and HD hosting environments.  All hosting companies will provide a dedicated software manager or control panel to help manage your server.  Some well-known control panels include WHM/cPanel (Unix), Plesk (Windows/Unix) Direct Admin, Webmin (Unix) and H-sphere.

Finding a Good Reseller Hosting Company

Comments Off on Finding a Good Reseller Hosting Company

The webhosting market is competitive.  Reseller hosting is a type of hosting plan where a client will buy hosting space from a company in order to resell the space to other users on the internet. The client will potentially make a profit from the resale.

It is popular for large hosting companies to want to sell reseller plans because they are effectively reaching customers that they would not normally get. It is also profitable for large companies to sell in ‘bulk’ or wholesale. Some clients wish to buy in bulk and then provide a hosting service off the back of a parent hosting service. By buying webhosting in bulk, users can effectively save 50% or more on their webhosting services.

It is not complicated to become a reseller host or hosting service as parent-hosting companies provide a good setup. Parent hosting companies will design a package that suits reseller needs. The package may include convenient tools such as an administrative hosting control panel, an accounting program and customer hosting support. The more a space a reseller sells the more profitable business is for both the reseller and the parent hosting provider. Large hosting companies provide reseller plans that can deliver a lot of support. Users do not need to know any complex jargon or HTML code to become a reseller. However resellers should understand key technical points that will benefit business along with basic hosting types, methodologies and terms. Resellers should for example understand bandwidth, disk space, server speed and technical reasons that may affect the server functionality. The most essential thing for users to have is an effective marketing and business plan in order to make a profit on the market.

Normally hosting services will sell reseller plans. Users pay a monthly fee. Depending on the parent hosting company, potential resellers will often be allocated access to certifying domain names, a user ready account that one has to simply input data to start running and a large amount of disk-space and allocated bandwidth. Resellers should purchase good software, or web host manager. Some hosts provide resellers with all the software that they may need to use in their account. How much software a host will give a client depends and varies, but is relative to the amount of money a client pays per month. Reseller plans will enable users to have their private label. Resellers can create their own plans and prices. Generally speaking hosting services will provide a free setup. Reseller plans also come with accounting tools and software to help users better manages their business accounts. All accounts will come with a control panel that can manage the hosting site.

There are some disadvantages to purchasing reseller plans. The upstream provider is very important. Resellers should choose their parent hosting company wisely. If users have any problem with the parent server, resellers may lose clients through no fault of their own.

In addition, if you become a reseller and later wish to change your parent server, it could be a huge hassle for both your clients and yourself. It is a good idea to be sure of your reseller plan and web-hosting server before you commit.
