Category: Greengeeks Plans – admin – 12:11 am

There are many reasons why some web hosting clients choose to go the route of reseller hosting. Some are looking for a way to make money, others have too much or extra space on their server and turn to reseller hosting as a way use the extra space, and some see reseller hosting as a business opportunity.

Someone who sees reseller hosting as a business opportunity and is looking for a way to supplement their income or start their own web hosting company needs to truly understand what reseller hosting is in order to be successful. Basically, reseller hosting is the same with all web hosting companies such as GreenGeeks, though reseller plans and their cost typically vary.

So what is reseller hosting? Reseller hosting is when a client of a web hosting company sections off parts of their hosting plan and resells it to someone else. The client sections off part of the server and sells sections at the price of their choosing. The only time a client can do this is if they themselves have signed up for a reseller hosting plan because this is exactly what a reseller hosting plan is designed for.

Many people that sign up for reseller hosting plans are entrepreneurs and trying to start their own web hosting company. This is a good way for entrepreneurs to start their own web hosting company because it allows them to build a list of their own clients, outline their own hosting plans, and set the price for their services.

Reseller hosting plans work well for both the entrepreneur and the original hosting company. First, the entrepreneur begins their own business under their own terms and conditions. They have the ability to market themselves as the original web hosting provider, build a brand and grow their business as they see fit.

The original web hosting company benefits also, because they are still making a profit under their own terms and conditions and are able to reach more clients through the entrepreneur. Though the entrepreneur is reselling their hosting plan and essentially becoming the salesmen, the original web hosting company gains more clientele and exposure.

Entrepreneurs make money through reseller hosting plans because they are basically repackaging a hosting plan from another company. This eliminates the need to purchase a server, rent or buy a data center, and make updates to the server on a regular basis. Buying a server, data center, paying employees to manage and monitor the sever, and provide customer service is extremely expensive. Repackaging the reseller hosting plan and marketing the start up web hosting company is much more affordable with hardly any overhead.

Many entrepreneurs use reseller hosting as supplemental income or a fraction of their web hosting business. Some entrepreneurs are really interested in web site design and development and offering web based solutions to companies marketing themselves online. Becoming a part of the reseller community is an added benefit and allows the entrepreneur to offer more from their web hosting company and reach out to a wider variety of clients on their own.
