There are many opportunities that come with reselling web hosting. In this post, we explore some of these, and also discuss why the web hosting industry can work for you.
You don’t have to be a technical guru to become a successful web hosting reseller. In fact, many resellers don’t know much about what goes on behind the scenes; you may get a blank face if you ask them to give you a technical tour of a server. Perhaps, that’s not a problem.
The great thing about Resell.biz’s Reseller Hosting is that we take care of all the technical web hosting details, giving you the freedom to focus on managing the business side of things, keeping your clients happy.
So what is web hosting?
Put simply, web hosting provides storage space for websites. All website content needs to be stored somewhere, where it can be recalled and distributed to people around the world. A web hosting provider ‘hosts’ this important data on servers, which are powerful computers that use advanced software to store and access the files.
Once a site is hosted, the general public can access the site by typing in the corresponding web address. You can learn more about how websites are located on the internet by reading this article about the Domain Name System (DNS).
Every website needs to be hosted somewhere, which is precisely why the web hosting business continues to blossom. As more and more sites are created, the web hosting industry grows.
There are many different hosting solutions, including shared, cloud, VPS and dedicated. Each type of hosting has its own benefits and serves a particular range of pursuits. For example, a small business or startup will benefit from a shared hosting platform, as they won’t require vast amounts of dedicated resources during their infancy.
What does a web hosting reseller do?
Web hosting resellers do exactly that: they resell the server space of a back-end provider, which becomes their parent company. As a reseller you have your own clients who will purchase web hosting through you, but essentially you are redistributing the hardware and technical support of your parent company (in this case, Resell.biz is the web hosting parent company).
As a reseller you build your own clientele and market your own business. You set prices and have total control over how the hosting is resold; the only thing you don’t have to worry about is managing the technical details that can take years of experience to master.
Here at Resell.biz, we allow our resellers to build an infinitely scalable plan. You start with as many or few resources as you require, and as your business develops we allocate the resources you need to account for the growth. As a reseller, you have total control and don’t have to worry about wasting unused resources!
Why should I become a reseller?
Many resellers take the opportunity to get a start in the web hosting industry. Reseller hosting is an inexpensive opportunity for web hosting entrepreneurs, who know that web hosting is one of the few online business opportunities that is stable.
Others choose reseller hosting to provide additional services to their clients. Web designers and developers resell hosting in order to bundle their services. For example, they can offer their client design, development and hosting all for one price (they will sometimes include SEO, domain names and other services as well). Generally a client is willing to pay a little extra in order to have all of their needs taken care of in one place.
