Guide to Reseller Hosting: How to Get Started

Want to enter the world of web hosting without the headache of complicated infrastructure? Reseller hosting is the perfect solution. Keep reading as we discuss the ins and outs of this lucrative partnership, including how to capitalise on wider resources to secure new clients.

What is reseller hosting?

Reseller hosting is when a company buys hosting resources from a larger provider, brands them as its own and then resells them to customers. These might include cloud servers, bandwidth, web apps, CPU, leased lines and email solutions.

What are the benefits of reseller hosting?

So, why choose reseller hosting? It’s a no-brainer really, empowering web-based businesses to offer a wider range of services they otherwise wouldn’t have the infrastructure to support.

The best part of the arrangement? You don’t have to deal with the hassle of expensive servers and data centres. Instead, you can pour all your energy into managing client accounts and providing technical support.

How to start a successful reseller hosting business

  1. Find a reliable host

Firstly, you must choose a reliable reseller. This is perhaps the most important step because partnering with the wrong company could ruin your reputation. Here are a few things to consider when browsing hosts:

  • Do they have a good reputation?
  • Do their plans have enough features to meet your clients’ needs?
  • Do they have total control over their data centres and network?
  • What level of customer support do they offer?
  • Are the plans scalable, or will they limit you as you grow?
  • What are the exact terms and conditions?
  • Do their plans fit your budget?
  1. Choose the right plan

Next, you must choose the right plan for your business. It’s helpful to think about this from your clients’ perspectives – what would they want and need from a hosting package in terms of disk space, bandwidth, support, scalability and pricing?

For example, if you work mostly with videographers, you’ll need to offer plans with tonnes of storage. Ecommerce stores will require SSL certificates and exceptional uptime. To be competitive, the cheapest options might not be the best investment.

  1. Remarket packages to customers

Finally, customise the packages with your branding, set your new prices and install a control panel to manage and support customers. You’re now responsible for managing the day-to-day tasks of running a hosting business, but the reseller will always be there in case of emergencies.

How much does reseller hosting cost?

One of the best things about reseller hosting is that every package will be far more reasonable than setting up your own data centres and network. Nevertheless, you can find plenty of basic options that won’t break the bank. Our reseller packages start at £61.50, which (we hope) is an affordable entry point for most businesses.
