How Can I Sell Reseller Hosting?

So, you’ve been in the web hosting business for a while and you have got some client base bringing you some income. Everyone wants to improve and grow and if you don’t grow and improve your services it will not take long before your web hosting business gets to a stop even if you have the best reseller hosting plan. A reseller hosting account will allow you to sell just shared web hosting however there are many other types of hosting which you could also sell. From one point of view, you will be able to offer your clients more web hosting options and when they need something different they will not have to go to another host. Instead you will be able to do more business with them and keep their money with you. Moreover, offering multiple web hosting plans will make you look better in the eyes of potential web hosting customers. You will be surprised how many people will choose a specific company just because it offers too many services even though those people don’t need them and they would never use them.

To be able to offer different types of hosting you would need more than a reseller hosting account. You need a server. The most powerful the server is the most clients you will be able to setup on it. Keep in mind that overcrowding your server is not a good thing. It will result in sluggish performance and web sites will load slowly. Your clients will not be happy about that and they will leave. That’s way plan from the start and always leave 20% free room for the existing web sites to grow without overloading the server and affecting its performance. That will allow you to offer a stable web hosting service and your clients will love you. They will recommend your services to more and more people and your business will grow. One of the big shares on the web hosting market is taken by the reseller hosting type. A server allows you to define and sell your own reseller hosting plans. That will give you access to a new niche of customers – web designers, developers, small companies, bigger companies managing multiple web sites and others. With your own server offering reseller hosting plans you will be able to give your clients the freedom to choose the exact type of hosting they need to manage their web sites in the best way. Note that selling reseller hosting is not the same as selling shared web hosting. The reseller hosting people are a different breed of clients and they have different requirements. They also have better technical skills so the time needed to support them will be less than the time you need to support your shared hosting clients.

To be successful with the selling of reseller hosting plans you need to make sure you get your services in front of the potential buyers which in this case are web designers and small web design companies mainly. You can try to find such companies and arrange partnerships with them, give them specials to start and try your services for a couple of months. After that if they are satisfied you will have growing partners which will bring more and more business to you on daily basis as reseller hosting customers always grow. They are related to building web sites or selling hosting so their web hosting needs are always increasing.
