Reseller Hosting is a profitable and worthwhile investment. It can be your main source of income or a side hustle, either way keep on reading to find out more.
Back in the day, everyone imagined a future where technology and cyberspace would govern our way of life. In a way it does… just not with flying cars or holographic images. Today (in 2022), our way of doing business is highly dependent on the internet. The web has opened up many new markets and possible clients that where inaccessible before. Businesses of all sizes and occupations thrive by offering their goods and services over the web. The premise is very simple, you never know who might be in need of what you’re offering.
Because of this, websites have become the main means of communication between clients and providers… and there is a market to explore in there. Enter Reseller Hosting. To understand what Reseller Hosting is, how it works, and how to capitalize from it let’s take a small tour through its working process.
What is Website Hosting?
All websites, and their contents, need to be saved (hosted) somewhere. Businesses use a server (a large powerful computer) for their website hosting, and there are many hosting providers that rent their servers for this task.
What does a server do for a website? Whenever a customer enters your website and requires some sort of information (prices, images, videos, sales, etc) a request will be made to your server to “serve” the information. The server responds by looking through its saved information, and sending it via the internet once it has found it. This remains true for all websites. Customers request information and servers answer those requests.
What is Reseller Hosting?
In these steps is where we need to separate two different agents. A Reseller Hosting Provider is someone that has bought server space from a Hosting Provider. A reseller has a specific clientele to which he/she will resell the server space acquired from the provider. It is literally like any other resell business; except that it deals with server space.
Many would question how profitable Reseller Hosting is. What they fail to judge is how booming this market is… especially during, and after, pandemic times.
What are the benefits of Reseller Hosting?
Many benefits feature among the main reasons why you should consider getting into the Reseller Hosting business. Some of them include:
- It is cheap for users and a great revenue source for resellers: A reseller can make a steady passive income from Reseller Hosting alone. The main objective is creating a loyal clientele that will purchase your reseller services. It’s not that difficult, considering you can adapt and modify your own plans according to the server space you rented from the provider. The actual investment from a reseller is quite small considering the possible income you may reap.
- Scalability: As a reseller you have huge growing space. Scalability, refers to how much you can “scale upwards” in terms of how much you wish to upgrade your services as your business thrives. You have full control over how much you wish to upgrade your packages or how much you want to expand your customer base.
- Reseller Hosting requires little-to-no technical knowledge: As a reseller, your only job is to find clients that will purchase your services. Server management, connectivity, and security fall over to the provider. You don’t need to know the technicalities of how a server works in order to make a juicy profit. Of course, it would be wise for you to know this stuff in case your clients have questions, but the idea is you can still make money with very little knowledge.
How can you capitalize from Reseller Hosting?
Like any other business, you need a strategy. Get to know your clientele; learn what they need in order to supply it to them. Remember you are in charge of your own packages, and you can offer what’s best for them.
It would be wise to hire the services of a provider with many reseller options. Reseller Hosting can be based of Windows Plesk, Linux Plesk, or cPanel. Each one of these is geared towards specific tasks, or even interphases. Learn what each hosting plan is good for and what your clients want and you’ll be all set!
Since we talked about Hosting providers, we would also like to mention that you need to choose one that is reliable and experienced. This provider will be supplying the services to your clients. It’s really important that you can trust these services with closed eyes.
