Bellevue, Washington – (The Hosting News) – February 13, 2008 – On-demand web applications for small businesses, iHost Networks, Inc., has enhanced its offerings, to better enable software publishers and technology companies, to generate revenue through hosting.
The expansion of the web hosting reseller and web hosting affiliate programs at iHost, is targeted to software publishers, high-traffic web site owners and web design professionals who are interested in earning hosting revenues, without having the expense of running their own hosting operation. For most partners, activation in the program is instantaneous. For partners requiring integration assistance, setup can be accomplished in as little as one week. Partners receive ongoing commissions based on hosting revenues. There are no setup fees or integration charges for the program.
Software Publishers who develop or distribute software can bundle hosting with software products. With recurring commissions, the revenues generated from hosting often exceed the value of the product sale. The partner program has proven to be effective for software companies who distribute their products via shareware or trial ware. Many customers using products on trial choose to use the Web hosting, domain registration services or shopping cart offering, even if they don’t purchase the product. iHost Networks handles all the billing and technical support, allowing the software publisher to make new revenues without having to incur new costs.
High-traffic site owners, such as bloggers, forums, podcasters, online directories, portals and ites that cater to small business, especially ones with a web site building, search engine optimization or web site template emphasis, can convert a substantial number of their visitors to hosting customers.
Web designers, webmasters and designers, may take advantage of iHost Networks hosting services. Having the flexibility to be paid a commission, resell services, or both, make the program attractive to internet entrepreneurs who can focus on their core competency, designing web sites.
John Norton, President of iHost Networks remarked, ”Our expanded program helps our partners to maximize their profits from Web hosting. It’s easy for all levels of partners to promote our hosting services in a way that fits their business.”
