Reseller plans are somewhat similar to regular hosting plans. You can purchase your hosting subscription package from a group of options at any reseller hosting website as you prepare to resell their services for a profit. Acquiring funds through the reselling of hosting services is very popular. Fantastic profit margins, wonderful working hours, it’s pretty much everything you could want from a job.
Reseller accounts are always based on being able to bring you a profit. If they didn’t do well for the economy of business, they wouldn’t be in the mix. See, reseller accounts were designed with serving your abilities to sell their services. Most of the options and features you will find are only there because they can help you get hosting accounts sold. Use your creativity and ingenuity. Think of every possible way the features and tools they provide can help you in your quest to make money. Reselling hosting accounts can be very lucrative if you know what you’re doing. So what should you be looking for a in a reseller company? How do you get the job done?
Reseller accounts have both a disk and bandwidth pool. Choosing the appropriate gigabytes of bandwidth and disk space is imperative to your profit margin. Buy too much and you run the risk of not taking in a profit, buy too little and you won’t be able to properly service your customers. Usually, a present number of IP addresses will be included in your reseller hosting package. This means you can get your friends and family into the reselling of services as well. Hey, it would be free for them.
Most plans allow you to resell as many accounts as you want and as a result, you have the possibility to make as much profit as you want. Reseller hosting accounts usually come with a lot of the same standard features. If you are looking for a custom reseller account, you’ll have to shop around. The reseller companies won’t all go out of there way to make you a custom account but some are set up to do just that. Custom accounts are great for people who already know what they want and won’t need to tweak their reseller account to include additional features.
Everything you sell in a reseller hosting plan can make you money. Email accounts, forwarders, auto responders, websites, domain parking, subdomains, SSL access, FTP accounts, Web based file manager, Web database manager, DNS Zone File Editor and Cron Job Editor. Being able to offer the most features to your customers, at the most affordable rate is the primary goal when it comes to the reselling of hosting accounts.
Offering your customers a money back guarantee is very important as well. Uptime and customer support guarantees are also a consideration. Basically, you’re offering your customers the same hosting account as the hosting company but you take a small percentage of the profit for finding them a customer. While reseller hosting accounts aren’t free, you can get a piece of the action for less than 100 dollars per month.
Tweaking your reseller account is definitely worth it. You’ll want to add new features and services every once in a while to stay competitive. Before you sign up with a company, be sure that you are given the option to upgrade and downgrade the service inclusions. Mixing and matching only what you and your customers will need can help you save a lot on overhead costs. Again, some hosting companies won’t let you do this and will include the same services for everyone. Choosing a reselling company to do business with should be based on three different categories: reputation, service quality and features. If the reseller hosting account you are choosing falls short in any of these areas, consider moving on to a company that can better serve your needs.
The reputation of the reselling company revolves around their feedback rating and reviews posted about them. You can usually trust what previous customers have to say. Having real experience with a business allows people to post their real thoughts, feelings and results. You stand to gain a lot from another person’s perspective.
Service quality will be dependent on a few things. The quality of hardware and software have a lot to do with it. If you need a higher performance reseller hosting service, you will probably need to find one that has only the highest quality hardware (no that rusty Celeron won’t do).
So, when it comes down to it, you have to consider all of the above features and options when deciding who to sign up with. Becoming a reseller is easy but actually making quality sales takes some effort. A quality sale means that you will get the customer to sign up with you again for the next month, week or year.
