Reseller hosting offers you the opportunity to set up your own web hosting business, design firm, agency or IT company— all under your own brand name. When you sign up for a reseller hosting account, you purchase an amount of disk space and bandwidth, which you may then divvy up and 'resell' to your own clients. You choose the account limits, space, and price you want to offer your clients – in other words, you're in control!
Reseller hosting offers a number of benefits. If you are a web developer, you can host all of your own websites under one reseller account. You can sell web hosting services to your own client base. You can give web hosting accounts away to friends and family. A reseller account works in a number of different scenarios. With reseller hosting, you really can operate a web hosting business without investing in expensive infrastructure, servers, bandwidth, and IT staff. It's a great way to make a profit with relatively little risk or financial outlay!
While you do not need to be a web hosting expert, having some basic knowledge of terms and procedures will definitely be an asset. Most resellers are web hosting customers first, and that experience generally provides enough knowledge to get started. HostPapa does provide excellent technical support to resellers, and we'll help you get set up.
As a reseller, you will be the first point of contact for your clients and will provide support for them. Make sure you are comfortable with this arrangement. (See question 7 for more on your responsibilities as a reseller.)
After you select and purchase your reseller account, you will have access to Web Host Manager (WHM), which is your centralized reseller control panel. Through this interface, you will be able to easily create and manage packages for your clients.
Your clients will have access to a cPanel user control panel of their own, through which they can create and maintain their own websites and email.
HostPapa provides all resellers with an excellent startup guide, which will walk you through the steps involved in setting up your account. And our PapaSquad support team is here for you 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
All reseller hosting accounts come with two separate control panels:
1. The Reseller’s Web Host Manager (WHM) which allows you to create and manage your client accounts;
2. Your client’s cPanel which allows them to create and/or manage their websites and email with ease.
Through WHM, it is quite simple to manage and create various subaccounts. You'll be able to:
Your clients will be responsible for setting up their websites and email and for managing their own accounts, which they may do through their cPanel control panel. cPanel will let them create and manage their websites and email accounts without needing your assistance.
You can host an unlimited number of domains, for as many clients as you'd like. The only limitation comes from the amount of disk space and bandwidth you have purchased with your reseller account. Individual account sizes and limits will be up to you to manage. If you need more space or bandwidth at any time, simply contact us to upgrade your account.
Not at all. You can add your own branding and position yourself as your own web hosting service provider, design firm or agency. In fact, your clients need never know that you are a HostPapa customer. You may do this by specifying your own domain for the private nameservers (HostPapa offers a short video tutorial that will walk you through this simple process).
As a reseller, you provide support for your clients. You are responsible for all communications between yourself and your hosting clients – you are, after all, the business owner! You will have the ability to build your website, set up your plans and pricing, install scripts, and fix certain aspects of your clients' sites.
Of course, HostPapa support is available, 24/7 to support you, the reseller. You may contact us any time for high-level technical or server issues. HostPapa is responsible for providing you with the disk space, bandwidth, and features you need to resell, and we are always happy to help you with issues related to these items.
You are responsible for collecting payment from your clients, in the method of your choosing. Most HostPapa reseller packages do include professional billing software, which you may take advantage of.
We will bill you automatically according to the terms and billing cycle you chose when you signed up. (For example, if you selected a monthly payment option, we will bill you monthly, starting on the date you signed up.)
Of course! You can upgrade your reseller hosting plan at any time, with no downtime. Simply open a support ticket through your HostPapa customer care center with your request.
Your HostPapa reseller hosting package includes a domain name reseller account. This allows you to purchase and manage domain names for your clients.
