Reseller web hosting is an option that involves one company (a hosting provider) renting hard drive space and bandwidth to another company (small-mid size business), who then rents the space to third parties (entrepreneurs-small business). Simply put, reseller hosting is the ability to provide hosting to your own clients as if you yourself were the web hosting company. This is typical for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to start their own web hosting firm or for current web developers and designers who desire to add additional services to their brand.
Here are the (perhaps over-simplified) steps to establishing a reseller business: 1) Research and select a hosting company 2) Purchase the reseller package that meets the goals of your business 3) Know and understand your target market to locate your new customers 4) Create your own branded hosting packages 5) Decide your price 6) Sell hosting packages to your clients 7) Earn profit
Taking advantage of reseller hosting offers incredible benefits to your new or existing brand. As a reseller you’ll: 1) Get to act as a hosting company - make money hosting and creating websites. 2) Easily make profits. 3) Design your own hosting plans and packages that are tailored to your own business and clients. 4) Make independent cPanel control panels for each of your clients. 5) Save money with its low initial start-up costs with the opportunity to upgrade later. 6)Host and bill your customers using your unique brand.
Reseller plans are designed for you to earn money and are often the least expensive and easiest way to start a hosting business. By using one control panel, this option lets you set up, manage, and operate the back-end of websites, emails and domain management for your business as well as your clients. Many customers may not have the expertise or background in this area and will be completely dependent on you for setup and changes to their service…allowing you, the reseller, to charge a bit more for this hands-on type of service. With that said, since the web hosting provider handles the servers, your focus is the profits and managing your hosting customers. This is an easy way to start making a profit from your web hosting business right away. Yet as with any business venture, you must create your business plan, know your target audience, and implement a marketing strategy to reach your potential customers.
Below are some of the common features often included in Reseller packages: Disc Space Bandwidth Domain Hosting Ability to brand your own web hosting company with the hosting provider company unknown to your client (also known as "white label") Latest cPanel control panel Manage your own plans and configure different accounts based on your needsPass on features to your own clients such as email, control panel, additional scripts and monitoring tools Premium support (usually 24/7) offered by CrazyMAMBA By the way, did we mention that CrazyMAMBA have received multiple awards for our reseller hosting?
VPS hosting utilizes something called a Virtual Private Server. Essentially, this style of hosting mimics a dedicated server, but it utilizes a shared server environment. Your physical servers will be housed in a data center. And a VPS is the portioned part of this physical server that has its own operating system, disc space, and bandwidth. Your VPS offers extensive server customization options, similar to a dedicated server, but at the fraction of the cost.
VPS hosting is technically a combination between both shared hosting and dedicated hosting. With dedicated servers, you rent out an entire server, which can get pretty expensive fast. With shared hosting, you end up renting a portion of a server that’s shared with other users. Shared hosting is a solid option for beginners, as it’s generally much cheaper and provides you with the necessary resources to get your site started. VPS uses a single server and that server is partitioned out into different virtualized server environments. This differs from shared hosting because with shared hosting you have limits on the amount of CPU and memory available, as well as other software restrictions. VPS usually offer baseline resources that you’re guaranteed, plus additional resources available at a moments notice should your site experience a traffic spike.
VPS hosting is similar to using virtualized OS software. For example, let’s say you have a MacBook Pro, but you really need to use the Window OS for a certain program to run. Instead of buying a separate Windows PC you could use software like VirtualBox or VMware. This software will allow you to run a virtualized version of the Windows OS on your Mac machine. The same can be said for VPS. On the same single physical server, you can run several different virtualized servers. Each of these virtual servers will act as if they’re separate dedicated servers.
If you require a unique hosting setup, or you have a very large and high-traffic site, then you’ve probably thought about getting your own dedicated server. But, there’s only one problem. Dedicated servers are expensive! This is where VPS comes to the rescue. VPS can be totally customized to your liking and give you much more control over your hosting environment when compared to a shared server. VPS hosting can also grow with your site as your traffic levels and resource needs increase. VPS hosting is also generally more secure than shared hosting environments, as you’ll be the only site using the set server resources.
With VPS hosting you have much more control over the software that your server is running. Typically, the only limits placed upon the software you can run are the operating system the server runs on and your total memory allocation.
