Reseller hosting is the provision of Web hosting services to companies that in turn
act asWeb hosts for other companies.
It is a Web hosting business model in which a Web hosting service provider allows
some or all of their Web hosting services to be sold by an individual or third party
Reseller hosting enables an organization to act as a Web hosting provider to
other people or businesses without the need to build, operate and manage a Web
It can be considered as a business development model
provided by a Web hosting service/provider.
Through this model, one or more organizations lease
out Web space that is packaged, rebranded and sold
under their brand name.
Depending on the primary hosting service provider,
each reseller host may be provided with a complete
white/private labeled control panel to manage their
leased space and their particular customers.
Although the reseller host handles billing and technical
support, it is usually dependent on the primary host for
additional Web space and the resolution of technical
Lower cost –Reseller can purchase hosting for a reduced price at wholesale
affordable rates. They tend to gain at part profits or full profits from overall resale
of hosting plans.
Reliability - Reliability is always an issue with any service provider. The one thing
that resellers can do is help their customers by providing them with adequate
amounts of bandwidth and storage to help reduce issues and claims of instability.
Completely managed - All support and help requests are done with the reseller
company. Reseller hosting customers do not need to handle customer support
for their service.
Scalability: Reseller can be more scalable than a typical hosting firm. A true Web
host is limited by its hardware; if a client suddenly requires an upgrade the host is
not prepared for, the only way the host will be able to satisfy the customer is by
upgrading its hardware, which can be expensive, and time consuming for both
sides. In such case, the reseller host, however, can simply choose to locate with a
differentWeb host that will better suit the customer's needs.
Complete control over resources - Account owners of reseller hosting plans can
easily create their own plans to sell to others. An added benefit to many of the
reseller hosting services is an automated system that allows for this type of
selling to be done.
If the servers are down frequently or there are other problems,
resellers lose credibility with their clients.
If resellers have to change web hosts, the change can cause
inconvenience to the resellers' clients as well as to the reseller.
Resellers have to wait for their upstream provider to fix problems
that they do not have access to.
Bandwidth - The most important element of reseller hosting is
the bandwidth. This determines the amount of clients you will be
able to service. For example, targeting e-commerce or
photography sites will require a large amount of bandwidth,
while aiming at writers or bloggers can even be managed with
lower bandwidth. In general, always review the terms.
Disk Space - Next important feature to consider is disk space.
Again, if you’re targeting e- commerce or photography or other
data-intensive niches, you’ll need plenty of disk space to
accommodate. Don’t forget to factor in all elements of a website
that occupy disk space, not just databases, but also mail and mail
attachments. Like with bandwidth, be wary of unlimited disk
space advertisements. Nothing is free, certainly not disk space.
Domains or How Many Clients You Can Serve - In contrast
with bandwidth and disk space, most web hosting companies actually
do offer an unlimited amount of domains on their servers. This option
allows you to serve as many customers as you can, only limited by
bandwidth and disk space. Of course, a limited option can be
beneficial as well, preventing you from selling hosting to too many
clients and letting the quality of hosting suffer.
Technical Support - Even an excellent web hosting option can be
marred by poor technical support. Before you commit to any
particular company, make sure to review their technical support
options and test them. This is quite simple, actually. If they offer
support via live chat, telephone, or e-mail, contact them through all
three possibilities and ask simple technical questions. That way you’ll
be able to gauge the quality of their service (or lack thereof).
Control Panels - A key aspect of any web hosting is the ability to
manage websites hosted on the server. Check if the hosting will
support your control panel of choice and whether it will be
appropriate for the segment you are targeting with your services.
Finding the Hidden Clauses - Finally, a good way to see whether
the host you are about to choose is truly the best option, look for less-
than-obvious clauses in the hosting agreement. Of particular
importance are upgrade and downgrade fees, limits on e-mail and
memory/CPU usage, any additional costs, such as non-refundable set
up fees, and more.
