Web Hosting Reseller: How you can become one?

You may be aware as to what Web Hosting services are and who provides these services. But what you may not know is that even you can become one and offer Web Hosting services to your clients. It is possible for you establish your own hosting business by becoming a web hosting reseller.

Web Hosting Reseller

A Web Hosting reseller is one who gets hosting services from the web host and sells it further to users who need a hosting service. As a reseller you can provide hosting services to your clients as your own service and in turn earn revenue for it.

What you need to do for Reselling Hosting?

Choose a reliable web host

The first thing you need to do to go ahead with your web hosting reseller business is to choose a bankable Reseller Hosting service provider. You must choose a Web Hosting company like you would choose it for your own website hosting checking all the necessary things related to the service provider.

To begin with, you can check for essential things like the experience of the hosting provider and the background of the company. Look for reviews about the company on forums and other review site to gain better knowledge about the reseller hosting service of the company in particular.

These days many Reseller hosting providers offer End User Support with their reseller plans. So if possible you should choose a service provider that would give you end user support. This would allow you to be free of support related issue of your clients as all this would be looked after by your reseller hosting provider itself.

Buying a Reseller Package

When you have gained all the information about the reseller hosting provider and find it worthy of it then you need to select an appropriate reseller plan.

You need to assess the amount of resources you would need based on what you will be able to profitably resell. Accordingly you must select a reseller package from the hosting provider. Avoid getting extra amount of resources on the server which would simply remain idle and result in decreased revenue for you.

Another way to start reseller hosting is by getting a Dedicated Server. You can get a dedicated server instead of the usual reseller plan and resell the space on the server to your clients. As you own the server you can allocate resources to your clients the way you want to. For every client you can create a virtual machine on the server and provide the required space depending upon the total amount of resources you have on the server.

So you can choose among the suitable ways in which you need to offer the services and you can begin your Reseller Hosting business in no time.

You must ensure you provide the desired resources to your clients and avoid getting their websites crashed due to load on the server as this would lead to dissatisfaction of your clients and they may end up leaving your service.

Modern Lifestyle – Cloud in everyday use

modern cloud

Spending time on the Internet and sharing your data with other people carries many different influences on you and the world around you. While we are all dealing with the ways and methods form improving the technical aspects and practicality of the cloud data storage itself, there are not too many social studies about the influence of the online virtual space.

Language

One of the first things that is more than obvious when it comes to modern lifestyle and the impact of the cloud in everyday use is the question of the language. You did not necessarily have to be exposed either to the net or any sort of online data storage service and you have most probably heard some terms such as the verb to google or nouns such as chatroom or post (and not in terms of that traditional company that sends real letters). And not to mention the popularity that the verb to like has gained since the Facebook geeks chose it to be their word of approval. While earlier people were emotionally attached and they used to attach tangible things one to another, today we mostly use the verb to attach when we talk about sending e-mails.

So, the cloud and the whole system of the Internet are changing everyday language use more than we are aware.

Social contacts

Some fifteen or twenty years ago pubs and bars would be swarming with people between 5pm and 8 pm. Today, however, instead of dropping by to the local cafe for a pint of beer and a round of chat with your mates, you usually hurry home to check if someone has liked any of your posts, statuses or pictures. Although we still have not completely lost the sense of real, genuine social contact and emotional belonging, that concept has turned online to a great extent. On the other hand, people who have poor social skills and low social intelligence have greeted such a development with excitement and joy. Now they are able to make social contacts via social networks, which is a very positive process for them.

Increasing knowledge

Maybe the cloud and virtual space have brought some social irregularities (not necessarily anomalies), the education process has never been easier and we have never been so exposed to different sort of information and various kinds of knowledge. Whatever you think of doing, you can find all the steps and procedures on any of video streaming sites. Someone has already made a video for you and your task is only to watch and copy what they do. Apart from everyday house works or tips for making different repairs, you can apply for numerous courses and lectures given by professors and lecturers from well-known universities. What is more, you can even finish online courses and get a perfectly valid certificate both in virtual space and in the real world. Primary and secondary school teachers have started sharing additional material for practice via e-mails or social networks and students enjoy learning via the Internet, where everything can be shown and exemplified immediately.

The world wide web and the concept of cloud have changed the world around us to a really high level. Although being online can drag us to a completely wrong and useless direction, it can be also used in most positive and self-improving ways. It is up to us what road we are going to take.

They are usually supported by unwanted advertisements on your websites which not only irritate your visitors but also affect business. And you cannot be sure if the provider would be there tomorrow or not and then what happens to all your important data.

For all these reasons it is better that you choose to pay couple of pounds to a good provider as shared hosting services are very affordable these days and you get good resources with safety and security of your data.

Sub Domain

Similar to a free hosting service there hosting provider that charge very less and often provide free hosting but your website is not your own and often you only get a sub domain with the provider to host your website. You do not want to lose control of your data and it is better that you get your own domain name which is under your ownership so you can switch hosting whenever you want.

Going Cheap

Usually people who just start a website of an ecommerce shop are skeptical about it and do not want to spend much on it. Naturally, choosing the cheapest is there preference. However, you must remember that with many cheap hosting services you do not get the desired amount of resources and many which provide those do not have a good level of service. You do not want to fall for it and later handle all the issues faced by your website.

Many cheap providers also do not allow support service and you cannot upgrade to a better plan as well. When choosing a service make sure you check all these conditions before hand.

Wrong Hosting Plan

Many times users which are new to websites and hosting are lured into choosing a solution which they do not require in the first place.  It is always good to know what your needs are and choose a solution which will suffice it. Simple spending on a costly package and keeping those resources idle is a waste of your money.

A good hosting provider would guide you about how much resources what be sufficient based on the needs of your website and accordingly suggest you a hosting package.

Proper Check of the Provider

Often people choose a provider based on the prices and fail make a check on it. It is essential that you see what their customers are saying about it and what uptime they offer. All these will give you a good idea about their quality of service.

Many providers face outages and have more than usual downtime which would have a major impact on your website as well. Therefore checking their uptime and having a good service level agreement which cover this and the provider offers a money back guarantee is essential.
