Reseller Hosting

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.
