Getting Started with GreenGeeks Reseller Hosting

Category: Greengeeks Plans – admin – 12:25 am

Making money, whether as a supplemental income or starting a web hosting company using reseller hosting must start with packaging. When it comes to reseller hosting, packaging refers to the reseller sectioning off parts of their reseller hosting plan and creating multiple hosting plans of their own.

Before the reseller creates a package, he or she must look at their plan as a whole. This includes what their plans consist of such as bandwidth, disk space, e-mail and more. Also, the reseller must take a good look at what they are paying for the reseller hosting plan so they can charge enough money for their packages to cover the cost of their plan and make money at the same time.

The reseller must figure out how much disk space and bandwidth, etc. they are going to offer to their clients. This is where creating different plans comes in. A reseller can create one basic level plan or they can create many plans at different levels. Resellers that create plans at different levels allow their clients to use more space on the server as the level of the plan increases. Also as the level of the plan increases, so does the amount of money the reseller charges for the plan.

Whether the reseller client uses GreenGeeks hosting or another web hosting company, they must add a new package or packages once they have the details sorted out. Once the new package is created, the next step is to add features to the package. The features are what their clients can use. It’s important to name different packages so potential clients can get a gist of what they will be paying for at first glance of the package name.

Basic features included in hosting packages include bandwidth, disk space, RAM, allotted e-mail accounts and domain names, etc. After adding the features to the package, the next step is to assign the amount of space for each feature. This means adding MB or GB to the package, for example, 1000 MB of bandwidth. Next, the reseller must figure out how much space is allotted to each client per package on a monthly basis.

Generally, hosting plans have a set limit of the amount of space an individual client can use on the server on a month to month basis without going over. Referring to the example above, the 1000 MB of bandwidth the client is allowed to use would be specified on a per month basis.

Some packages come with limited features. Limited features usually include e-mail accounts, databases, domain names, sub domains, and parked domains, etc. For instance, each client with a basic level package would be allowed one free domain name and 25 e-mail accounts associated with that domain name.

As a reseller gains more experience and their web hosting company grows, they can add more packages with more and better features. Packages that are designed with the client’s best interest in mind sell faster and make the reseller more money. Over time, the reseller can grow their web hosting company.
