  • Web Hosting Reseller

    I own a dedicated server account, however there is enough reserved space which I am not using currently. I have consulted with my hosting provider and they had given me permission to resell the web space. I am looking forward to use the reserved space to offer reseller hosting packages. Do you have any tips on reseller hosting ?

    In order to get tips and opinions from members, you will have to let us know exactly what do you have to offer customers ? For example: what kind of web hosting plan you currently have ? Which control panel you are going to offer ? Same way there are many other things you need to consider by yourself. Secondly, before taking any decision you need to consider the disadvantages as well. Will you be able to offer 24x7 customer support to your clients.

    Are you getting, what I am trying to say ? If you are interested, certainly do it. If you really want to build a reseller web hosting business, sure you go ahead. Once you sell the space you won't be able to remove those accounts. If you are prepared for such things then you should go ahead otherwise don't waste your time.

              It clearly indicates that the efforts taken aren't at par to the actual requirements. I know a couple of resellers who are earning handsomely. You might want to put efforts in Social Networking and marketing your site their. Moreover, start/increase your participation in forums and discussions where you would find prospective clients for example : when you are reselling hosting services, you can achieve a better conversion ratio at places such as web designing and development forums, seo forums and forums that are technology oriented. Join couple of pre-established groups in few of the reputed social networking sites.

                    Starting a Hosting company and expecting customers to join is just like planting a tree and expecting fruits from it. You can never get instant success in hosting business. it takes at least few years and many people quit instead of going through that painful phase of survival.

                    Proper Sales and Marketing strategy is what you need to become successful in hosting business. Don't focus on online sales and marketing methods only. you should start communicating with large potential customers in your town and county. Meeting customers face to face and convincing them about your expertise in service can help you earn that money, which you don't get from your online hosting business initially.

                    Learn from experience of others, no matter if it is success or failure, there's always something to learn from others in similar business.

                    Our growth in last 12 months has been mainly due to the large customers whom we have approached after learning their needs from various sources. We choose our customers and spend enough time to learn their organization structure and needs. If we focus on online sales and expect customers to join then we will hardly manage to achieve 25 - 30% growth. We have to focus on other offline sources to continue our 100% growth record.

                    Referral/Affiliate Business is another way to grow once you build a good customer base, but that works only once you have built a big hosting company, Referral/Affiliate business is not enough successful in early phase of your business.
