How to Make Money Reselling Web Hosting

Everyone who starts a blog or website needs web hosting. However, many people don’t know that it is possible to make money reselling web hosting. This is one of the best ways of making a consistent monthly income online. Therefore, if you can offer quality services at an affordable rate, you could be making a significant income every month.

How to Make Money Reselling Web Hosting

What exactly does web host reselling involve? It is simply about selling space on the internet without having to install your own servers. You purchase space on the internet from a credible web host, and then divide it into smaller portions which you sell to your customers. The great thing about this business is that you don’t have to worry about overheads for installing servers. In addition, since you are providing virtual goods and services, you don’t require any physical storage space.

So how do you get started? You begin by searching online for web hosts who allow reselling. You can find them through any major search engine using terms such as ‘web host reselling’ or ‘resell web host’. Take time to compare services and prices.

Before joining any plan for web host reselling, there are two things you need to consider. First, you should ensure that the plan you choose allows upgrading. This might be necessary if all the space originally offered gets used up. Secondly, make sure the web host offers as much support and help as necessary, especially if you have limited understanding of web hosting. However, it is advisable to have at least some basic knowledge at the onset.

Once you choose a web host, you should then build a site that targets prospective customers. Make sure the pricing and benefits of your packages are clearly displayed. You should also offer helpful articles on various elements of web hosting. Besides helping prospective customers, these articles could also help enhance your site’s rank in search engines.

You will need to carry out some research before deciding the rates for your packages. How much you charge will be determined by who you are targeting and what each package is offering. For instance, you could create packages that target individuals and others that target small businesses.

    No matter what kind of business we are planning to venture, we should always have contingency plans, So that if plan A dont work, there is still plan B. And we should have thoroughly studied it before we actually begin implementing.

    Thank you so much my Cronies! Now I’m decided to begin such reselling web hosting business because of it is easy and beneficial. Really I’m fan of this reselling business.

    This isn’t a business, its a con. You aren’t producing anything or providing any kind of service; you’re just attempting to resell another person’s product at a higher price.

    I’ve heard good things about Hostgator’s reselling as well. It’s something that’s intrigued me, but I’m still not sure if it would be for me. A big part of it is definitely coming up with a plan to target customers, and I imagine it’s a pretty competitive landscape.

    I have always considered reselling web hosting but never really knew how to go about doing it. This laid out a good foundation, though. Thanks for this!

    I’ve never given this business much thought Charles, and your article seems to have covered quite a bit about it. I would also love to hear the opinions of people who are really into it to get a better insight into how this business works. It would be a good value add.

    I really enjoy Host Gator’s reseller plan. They use C-Panel which I find to be great and the service is really good and not expensive at all. I recommend checking out their reseller plans.

      I have quickly looked HostGator’s reseller plan, and if their plan is a good as their service, I may choose them if I were to get into host reselling.

      Reselling web hosting isn’t for everyone. I have thought about trying it, but haven’t really had the desire to start.

    Reseller hosting is very profitable business but you should be very careful about following the terms of services. Because most of tend to disregard these finer details it can really hurt your after you start to expand a bit.

      I agree. Anytime you embark on doing business online, you should always read and understand the terms of service.

      Even I agree with Nishadha … To be on safe side it is always better to have a look on this

      Great share Charles
