Everything You Need to Know About Reseller Hosting

Reseller Hosting is basically when you sell a parent web hosting company’s resources as your own. Many web hosting companies provide reseller packages, where you buy the plan from them and then resell chunks of it to other people for a profit. Some people choose to resell it as is, while other people create their own reseller hosting companies and sell it from there.

There are also hosts that choose to contract with the reseller and just charge on a per client basis, so that everytime a new client is added, the host will charge at a certain rate. There are others that offer various packages. While features may vary between different hosting companies, there are common factors that you should take a note of, such as:

1. Ability to Rebrand the Hosting Packages – it is important that you only get reseller hosting packages from companies that allow you to sell it under your own brand or company, making the parent hosting company invisible to your customers. This is because if the customer finds out that you’re only reselling hosting packages, they may end up cutting you, the middleman, out and buying directly from the parent hosting company.

2. The Ability to Manage Your Own Plans and Accounts – you need to find a parent hosting company that will let you minimize the steps needed for customers to get support. You need to have the ability to deal with minor problems on your end because of two things; first is that your customers will get fast support, and second is the fact that your job will be that much harder if you have to constantly go back and forth and act as a mediator between the customer and the parent hosting company.

3. Disk Space Allocation – of course, you need to be aware of just how much disc space is allocated to you so that you don’t oversell.

4. Bandwidth – like storage space, you need to know just how much bandwidth you can allot to your clients. You want to avoid getting complaints from your clients that their websites have become accessible after running out of bandwidth.

5. Lastly, Passthrough Features – these are features that are offered to the clients of the parent company, such as email, control panel, monitoring tools, etc. You have to ensure that customers coming from you will get the same features that are enjoyed by those who signed up directly from the parent hosting company.
