Many people do not know that it is possible to become a reseller of web hosting. It is a great way to make some additional income or perhaps even your entire living. Many people have heard of reseller hosting but do not know how to make money by becoming a reseller. It is easy, and you do not have to be an expert in web hosting to get started.
What are the benefits of becoming a web hosting reseller?
There’s a minimal investment required on your part. You don’t need to rent servers, pay for customer support, or any of that. You spend all of your time getting customers and nothing else. The customers will deal with the web hosting company directly. You get paid for each customer you sell to the parent company. This is how you make your money. All you need to invest in is a domain, hosting, and a design for your website.
Earn a passive income as a hosting reseller
Every month customers will have to pay you for their hosting, and that means you can earn money from them for months, maybe even years. Your income is passive in that it is continuously flowing to you from your customers. The benefit of this sort of income is its long-lasting nature, which means you can earn money for months or even years down the line. This is in contrast to work that you do for a client, who might want to have you only do a job once.
Choose to resell for a company that has been in business for a long time
Do plenty of research to know if the web hosting company that your reselling is trustworthy. If the company is honest and has been in business for a long time, it is a good choice for you to resell hosting. A dishonest company sticks around for a short period and will leave you with some angry customers at the end. Your reputation will immediately become tarnished if you go with a fly by night hosting company that takes the money and runs. You also need to know if the service that you’re reselling is worth the money. That’s why it’s best that you should open an account first and give it a try before selling the hosting.
Always remember that the backbone of your business is quality service
It can’t be stressed enough how important it is for you to choose to resell a top notch service. Anything short of that and you’re in for all kinds of problems. Web hosting is one of those businesses that people can quickly become irritated if you don’t provide a great service. That’s why you can’t cut corners and go with a hosting company that’s dirt cheap but offers a second rate service.
Some hosting companies actually provide an excellent service, and it’s only the reseller that is the source of problems. Be sure to offer an honest and quality service so people will feel comfortable dealing with you. Be upfront about what it is that you’re selling, and don’t overpromise. Always over-deliver and under-promise, if you want to have the best success in the world of web hosting.
