People question, “Why do we have to purchase a reseller plan instead of having our own web hosting company brand?”. As I once wrote in the previous article, the reason is simple, LESS budget, MORE profit. You don’t need hundreds or thousands of dollars when you first start as reseller. Just for couple of bucks to pay the reseller plan, you’ll get a lot more revenues than you start your own from zero.

Choose the Right Reseller Web Hosting Plan

To make the right step as reseller, the first thing you need to do is choose the right plan for your need and decide what kind of web hosting reseller you’d like to be. Sometimes, it’s hard to decide the best plan for you. However, you can consider how much you need and what you require.

For example, our company, Host Department, offers a reseller start up plan called Premium Reseller, with which you can have 50 GB storage, 150 GB bandwidth, 50 Control Panel accounts, and unlimited domains to be hosted at only very minimum price for reseller, $24.95 per month.

And it is totally inexpensive at that range of price. Why? Because with that amount of budget or with that range of reseller plan, you can rake instant revenues at least from hundreds to thousands of dollars a month as a reseller. How is it so? If it’s your next question, let’s discuss it below!

Calculation Estimation of Reseller Revenue with a Reseller Plan

You must be now questioning how you can possibly earn hundreds to thousands of dollars with only few bucks. Well, it is now time for me to share the general idea. Let’s say that with that $24.95/ month, you’ve got 50 GB storage, 150 GB bandwidth, and 50 CP accounts to sell and you can manage to sell them in few plans. For instance, you offer 3 plans, you can then sell them like this.

PLAN A

PLAN B

PLAN C

250 MB Storage

500 MB Storage

1 GB Storage

1 GB Bandwidth

2.5 GB Bandwidth

5 GB Bandwidth

15 accounts

20 accounts

15 accounts

$5 per month

$10 per month

$15 per month

15 accounts x $5 → $75

20 accounts x $10 → $200

15 accounts x $15 → $225

Storage: 250MB x 15 = 3.75 GB

Storage: 500MB x 20 = 10 GB

Storage: 1 GB x 15 = 15 GB

Bandwidth: 1 GB x 15 = 15 GB

Bandwidth: 2.5GB x 20 = 50 GB

Bandwidth: 5GB x 15 = 75 GB

From the table above, I try to give you a general calculation if you’d like to have 3 plans to sell in that way. So from Plan A, you offer 250 MB Storage with 1 GB bandwidth at $5 per month, and you set into 15 accounts; you’ll be able to get $5 times 15 accounts and you already get $75 per month. And if you can sell 15 accounts, the total storage used will be 250MB multiplied by 15, which equals to 3.75 GB. For bandwidth in plan A, if you can sell 15 accounts, that means you’ll spend bandwidth amount of 1 GB multiplied by 15, which equals to 15 GB use every month.

From Plan B, you give 500 MB Storage with 2.5 GB bandwidth at $10 per month, and you set into 20 accounts; you’ll be able to get $10 multiplied with 20 accounts and you get $200 per month. And if you can sell 20 accounts, the total storage used will be 500 MB multiplied by 20, equals to 10 GB. For bandwidth in plan B, if you can sell 20 accounts, that means you’ll spend bandwidth amount of 2.5 GB multiplied by 20, which equals to 50 GB use every month.

And in Plan C, you provide 1 GB Storage with 5 GB bandwidth at $15 per month, and you set into 15 accounts; you’ll be able to get $15 times 15 accounts and you’ll get $225 per month. And if you can sell 15 accounts, the total storage used will be 1 GB multiplied by 15, equals to 15 GB. For bandwidth in plan C, if you can sell 15 accounts, that means you’ll spend bandwidth amount of 5 GB multiplied by 15, which equals to 75 GB use every month.

So, from the general calculation from a start up reseller plan in which you have 50 Control Panels at only $24.95/month, you can earn at least $75 (Plan A) + $200 (Plan B) + $ 225 (Plan C) → $500 totally per month.

Even, it actually not really $500 per month but better, it can be $500++ per month, including the additional profit like domain name registration or additional domains add on fee, and the left storage and bandwidth to be sold when your customers need more.

Usually, resellers’ prices for domains are around $9 per domain name (regular ones like .com, org, net, biz, us, info). If you check out the market domain prices, those domain extensions can be sold at $12.95 per domain per year.

This will be your additional profits as a reseller. Also, if you set up numbers of domains to be hosted maximumly in each of your plan, you can set additional fee per domain when your customers want to add more domains than it is provided.

And why do I say you can sell your bandwidth and storage? It is because if you arranged your hosting service like that, you just get to use 3.75 GB+ 10 GB + 15 GB or a total of 28.75 GB for three plans, meaning that you still have 22.25 GB left out of 50 GB to sell to your customers when they need more storage for their web hosting needs.

The same way also happens to your bandwidth. When you arranged your 3 reseller plans that way, you will just use 15 GB + 50 GB + 75 GB or a total of 140 GB out of 150 GB for 3 plans, meaning that you still have 10 GB per month to sell whenever your customers need more bandwidth for their websites. This means the profit calculation is not yet at the dead end.

What to Do Now?

Of course this might be not the real exact calculation as this is just in general. You can arrange and manage your reseller plans as however as you’d like to. This amount of revenue is not settled yet. It can vary, depending on your management and number of clients. Nothing is written in stone yet anyway.

Everybody must need income. And the more we can get, the better we can survive living, especially, in this crisis happening. So it is time for you now to decide your future, whether you just want to be the way you are now, or you want to be more. Great amount of instant revenue will be in your hand soon! Make the right decision, make the right future for you now.

Web hosting industry has been an incredible money maker nowadays. As long as internet exists, web hosting will be money making machine for you. However, do you really think you can succeed in this business if you have no experience and enough capital yet? Well no worries, there’s a profitable option as a start up. Be a web hosting reseller! You can keep on going your current work if you have one and web hosting business at the same time. Only few dollars of investment needed.

Why Should You Really Start from Reseller?

Starting it all, as I have mentioned earlier, being a web hosting reseller doesn’t require you to invest thousands of dollars in the business. You need only few or tens of dollars as your budget to begin with. If you open your own web hosting company, you have to buy your own data center, server, license, etc that seem too much for any beginner to start. You want to get more cash, but in fact, you just spend more than you need at the beginning. While on the contrary, with a reseller package, you spend less but receive more than you expect.

Being a reseller becomes a good start when you seem you’re just a web hosting newbie. You have no experience and still get lack of knowledge to really open your own web hosting business. Reseller hosting will be your “light in the darkness”. You get your own dedicated reseller specialist to help you when there are issues with your reselling. You are not alone! Hand in hand with the dedicated reseller specialist, there will be a reseller guide in a reseller package to help you out. Your reseller hosting provider won’t leave you by yourself. Help is always available.

Even better, although you are a reseller, you can perform as your own company brand. Most reseller hosting providers offer white label reseller, meaning that you will stand on your own brand. Create your own brand name and your reseller provider will stay undetected and hidden. When your end customers are satisfied with your web hosting service, you are the one accepting all the awards and respects. And the incredible revenues will come to “inhabit” in your bank account only, not your reseller provider.

By the time you have reached successful progress in reselling, been sure you want to get fully involved in web hosting industry and realized that reseller program is no longer suitable, you will always have the chance to really start your real own web hosting company. However, when you are sure you still start from zero in web hosting, reseller package is always highly recommended.
