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.
