Reseller Hosting Explained


hi i'm tony mehta from picker web and in

this video i'm going to explain

everything you need to know about

reseller hosting at the end of this

video you'll have all the information

you need to make an informed decision

when you come to buy a reseller hosting

service does that sound like a plan

great let's get started

okay so maybe you're a web designer or a

developer or another type of web

professional and you've already got some

clients or maybe you're a tech graduate

and you're looking to get into an

industry with huge potential so whatever

your situation whether you're starting

up a new web hosting business or you

just want to add hosting as an extra

value-added service as part of your

offering then listen up because I'm

going to explain just about everything

you need to know to hit the deck running

so what exactly is reseller hosting well

in a nutshell if you've got customers

that need hosting services you can

purchase a bulk amount of hosting space

and then resell it onto them healthy

profit it's a great way to add an

additional recurring revenue stream to

your business but what's really great is

that you have zero upfront costs to

invest in expensive infrastructure like

servers or software licenses the way it

works is that you get a master admin

area called whn which stands for web

host manager and from here you have

complete control over your customers

accounts so you can do things like

create plans create customer accounts

you can give users particular admin

rights so you have all the control that

you would have with an actual server but

at a fraction of the cost each of your

customers get their own unique cPanel

control panel login there's no mention

of us that way your customers think that

your server your service is completely

white label don't worry we won't say a

thing the key difference between shared

hosting and reseller hosting if your

customers get their own unique cPanel

login this means that they can self

manage and look after themselves

completely end-to-end this means that

they're not contacting every five

minutes to set up a new email account or

reset a password or whatever one of the

really neat features

clans like bronze silver and gold and

that way you can offer plans for clients

who have prepared to pay more so that

way you have something for everyone one

thing you do need to be aware of is that

you need to provide first-line support

for your customers

of course we're there in the background

to help and we can fix all of the issues

that do arise if you do need any help

but in the first instance your customers

will contact you for initial support now

if things take off you can even start to

automate your hosting business you can

use an automated billing platform like

WHMCS which automates the billing

administration and provisioning of your

hosting clients so there you have it

that's a quick overview of reseller

hosting I hope you found that useful
