The basic concept is simple: you purchase web hosting services in bulk and receive a hefty discount. You can then resell these services for an even heftier profit.
The purpose of a reseller hosting plan is to provide the tools and resources needed for you to create your own web hosting business from scratch. As a reseller plan holder you will receive access to server resources that can be controlled and delegated by you unto your clients. You have complete control over the software configuration of server, as well as the allocation of server resources and the structure of hosting plans. You can create custom hosting plans using the reseller tools included in your hosting account. You have the ability to brand your hosting company and offer a custom control panel with your company’s logo within your client's web hosting control panel. You can even rename the plans, customizing them according to any specifications you wish. You may also bundle the server resources with other web-based services.
If you want to profit from the incredibly lucrative web hosting industry then you may want to consider a reseller hosting plan. You can even sell your hosting company after you have made a decent profit with it!
The process of profiting from reseller hosting is rather simple. Once you have purchased the plan and you have access to the server resources you can then begin creating hosting plans. The key is to sell the server resources for a competitive price while also creating a substantial mark up.
As an example, if you are given 1200 GB bandwidth and 120 GB of disk space you could easily keep 20 GB of disk space for your own hosting needs, and then create 10 hosting accounts that contain 100 GB of bandwidth and 10 GB of disk space each. If you are paying $49.95 per month for such a plan, and you sell the hosting plans for $10 per month each, you would be making a profit of $50 per month, and you would also have access to 20 free GB of disk space for your own use. With such benefits it is easy to see why reseller hosting is becoming so popular.
Unlike other hosting plans, reseller hosting gives you the tools needed to create a hosting company with minimal effort. Most reseller plans come with comprehensive site building tools that allow you to set up a professional site that will solicit clients on autopilot. Every one of your clients gets their own control panel, and you can even brand the control panel and offer custom content management systems as well.
You also get an automated internal billing system that will let you invoice your clients automatically each month, making it extremely simple to keep track of business finances. To add to the authenticity of your hosting company, you'll even receive private nameservers that make it appear as if you own your client’s web server. In fact, most reseller hosting providers will work with you to create the most authentic looking hosting company from scratch. You can even service clients from around the world, as most reseller hosting plans come with multilingual support that lets your clients choose which language they'd prefer for their control panel.
If you want to venture into the extremely profitable industry of web hosting then you should definitely consider one of the many comprehensive reseller hosting plans available. Surprisingly, some web hosting companies started as small hosting resellers, and after a few years of building a client base, gradually made enough money to invest in a private data center for their customers. As a hosting reseller you have the unique opportunity to build a professional web hosting company from the ground up with as little as $20 per month.
The key to being successful as a web hosting company is branding and plan packaging. You have to set yourself apart from the other web hosting providers by offering unique plans. Every advertising and marketing campaign needs to be unique in order to catch the attention of a market that is being inundated with advertising on a daily basis. It is extremely important to make sure your hosting company does not look like a reseller hosting business.
You want to appear as if you are a professional hosting company, because most online business owners do not want to deal with middlemen. Fortunately, most reseller hosting providers give you all of the tools needed to create custom control panels and web sites that add authenticity and professionalism to your web hosting business. As your hosting business gradually expands you'll be able to receive cheaper prices on server resources, which will give you the opportunity to make even more profit.
