What Is Reseller Hosting?
Reseller hosting is web hosting that customers buy from a company that rents hard drive space and bandwidth from a hosting provider rather than buying hosting from the company that owns the servers directly. Small to midsize businesses that want to make money renting hosting space to entrepreneurs and very small businesses use reseller hosting. It’s a good way to get started building your own web hosting company.
How Does Reseller Hosting Work?
When you buy a reseller hosting package from a web hosting company, you will pay a monthly fee for your main account. You can then create sub accounts, which you will sell on to your customers. How many sub accounts you want to create is one factor that determines which reseller hosting plan you will need to purchase, as they all provide different amounts of disk space and bandwidth.
What’s Included in a Reseller Hosting Package?
When you purchase a reseller hosting package, we will provide you with a specified amount of disk space and bandwidth. Each package also provides a specified number of cPanel accounts as well as email and FTP services for each account. You can use our WebHostManager tool to create, modify, and manage the accounts you sell on to your clients.
The best reseller hosting packages include account migration support, one-click software installation, and a 99.9% uptime guarantee. They also offer a white label service, which means you can brand your own web hosting company without revealing the hosting provider to your client. Our Professional and Leader reseller hosting packages will also provide you with a dedicated IP address for no extra charge.
Benefits of Reseller Hosting
Reseller hosting can be a very profitable business model for people or companies that want to enter the web hosting market but cannot afford or do not want to invest in their own servers. The low startup costs involved in reseller hosting make it a popular business model for many entrepreneurs. You get to design your own hosting plans and packages so they meet the needs of your clients and brand them with your company’s name. You are in complete control of managing your customer accounts, billing your customers, and collecting payments directly from them. A reputable hosting company will offer billing software to help you invoice your clients and begin to profit from your web hosting business.
How to Choose a Reseller Hosting Provider
All reseller hosting providers should provide an easy-to-use tool that you can use to manage your client accounts. They should also provide cPanel accounts for your clients to use to manage their own sites. Finally, a 99.9% uptime guarantee is an essential characteristic of any reseller hosting provider. If you cannot guarantee that your clients' sites will be available almost all the time, your clients will likely lose their trust in you.
