Website hosting is something that we all need if we want to get our own website or blog online, but have you thought about selling website hosting to someone else?
Chances are that you never considered making money selling website hosting because you didn’t even know it was a possibility! But it is actually one of the easiest ways to make a significant monthly income that keeps increasing.
So, if you know how to provide a good website hosting service at a good price, you may soon be accumulating customers – and money – every month.
Just like on earth, do you become a hosting reseller on the web? And what exactly does this involve?
Simply put, it is an easy way to get involved with selling space on the web, without the hassle of having to have your own servers installed. What happens is that you buy space on the web from an established website hosting provider and then sell it in smaller portions to your customers.
You will not necessarily be able to make the profits that real website hosting providers do, but you do not have the overheads that they have so it is a good deal if you are looking to create an online business where services or goods provided are virtual and you don’t need any storage space to benefit! Web hosting companies also have thousands of customers, while you can start with just a few and build your empire. Once you know you like it however – the sky is the limit.
So, where do you start making money by reselling web hosting?
The first step is to search online for website hosting providers that offer reseller hosting. You can easily find these on any search engine once you enter that term. It is worth spending time comparing prices and services since you will need a good amount of space on the web to be able to share it among your future customers. Take a look at Bluehost reseller plans or look for other hosting companies with reseller plans on the GoDaddy website or on the Web.
There are two main things that you need to be sure of before signing up for any particular hosting reseller plan. First of all make sure that you can update it at any time, if you need to. This may well be necessary if you find that you can get enough customers to use all the space your original plan offers. Second, you must also ensure that the company offers all the help and support you need, especially if your knowledge of website hosting is limited. You will learn a lot when you join, but a minimum of basic knowledge is necessary to get started.
Once you have decided which service you want to use, you need to create a website to attract the attention of potential customers. You must clearly show the benefits and prices of your hosting packages and it may be a good idea to provide some useful articles, as well as on all aspects of web site hosting. Not only will these be useful to potential customers (and probably help you gain more customers as well) they will also help to get your site ranked higher in the search engines, as they will naturally contain all the keywords that one person looking for website hosting will type in a search engine to find your type of service.
Do your researches to find out what prices you charge for your services. Regardless of what you are offering in each package and the type of people you want to attract, you can set up different packages to appeal to people starting their first website, small businesses and blog owners, for example.
While it may seem that if there is a lot to learn soon you will get the hang of the deal, as you are basically just started, just repack and resell what your web hosting provider is giving you. When you’re all set up and ready to go, all you need to think about is getting more traffic to your website hosting reseller site.
