We are proud to announce that Host Department LLC. Team is working on the most awaited feature for which our thousands of customers have asked us millions of times, Data BackUP’s. We are planning to provide data backups for all the customers and we are delighted to say that we will be the first web hosting company in the world to provide it even to the shared hosting customers.

Backup's from host department

We have thousands of shared hosting customers and they are always worried of the their data. But now you don’t have to worry as we will take daily backups. It would be a great boon in the hosting world as no one will provide back ups and even if they provide they will do it only for dedicated hosting customers or Virtual Private Hosting customers (for a price) but we do provide it for even shared hosting customers for free.

Control Panel is the most important tool in web hosting service. Earlier, I wrote about how H-SPHERE defeats all Control Panels with its complete features. However, I realize that still many users look for CPanel. They say that CPanel is more suitable for them to use. What do they look for in CPanel?

Simpler User Interface (User Friendly)
This is the first that people look for in Cpanel, user friendly interface. People say that Cpanel has very easy to use features that make web hosting service worth its price. You get to use friendly web based interface that is suitable for beginners to professionals. You don’t have to worry about complicated Control Panel. Even that you still begin to learn about web hosting, you can manage your web hosting account without any hassle (hassle-free).

Fantastico Scripts

Fantastico is the other feature that users must want so much when they use CPanel, Fantastico. This feature offers you numerous ready to use scripts that you can install within minutes, with few clicks of your mouse only. The scripts are various – blog, forum, content management, etc. There is no worry for complicated installations. Even, the blindest person in web hosting can install fantastico scripts easily. In H-SPHERE, you will find the scripts in EasyApps, different name but the same feature.

With these two helpful abilities that CPanel offers to web hosting users, who will not look for them. Everybody looks for simplicity, everybody looks for no hassle, and everybody looks for easiness. The only minus that CPanel has might be only that it can only offer UNIX web hosting plans and still not available for Windows. However, being simple and easy to use are still a good offer.

Now Host Department is offering cPanel Control Panel to Linux Shared Hosting Plans at affordable prices starting from $2.95/ per month

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.

Easter 2009, it’s time to re-joy as it is always each year! Feasting, family and friends gathering will be awesome for this holy occasion. Hunting easter eggs is also exciting and fun to do. Plus, remember to attend church to  celebrate this great day to really feel the important meaning behind this special day.

What Is It behind Easter Day?
Is it all about feasting and gathering? Well, of course not only that! Easter is appreciated as the time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, celebrated on the third day after Christ died (Good Friday). Christians believe that after Christ was executed and He saved humans with the sacrifice of His blood, He resurrected on the third day after His death.

And the resurrection day of Him is commemorated as the Easter day, which falls on Sunday. This has become one of the important days of the Christian’s days and is celebrated every year.  This means you can’t say you are Christian if you do not celebrate this important day to memorize the greatness of Jesus Christ.

How Can We Celebrate Easter more besides Feasting, Gathering, and Egg Hunting?

There are always more stuffs to do. For example, what a special day is without gifts, especially on Easter? Use this special day to excite your beloved ones – friends, families, or co-workers – with amazing easter gifts and send your best mates gift baskets filled with Easter sweets, toys, games, and delicious chocolates (everybody loves it). When these baskets reach their doorsteps with your best sincere wishes to them, your friendship will be even more strengthened.

You can even complete Easter more terrificly by creating and writing beautiful and attractive Easter Cards to send to your friends, families, or lover. Yes! Easter Cards sound like just an old tradition but it is still lovely to send to show that we care. So, don’t miss out the cards.

If you feel you cannot write or create ones, these cards are available to purchase in the markets. Or, if you might want something practical, electronic cards are also a good option to send through email messages. With either of these cards, you can send best wishes of cheers, joys and happiness.

So, Welcome Easter!
Say no to skipping to celebrate Easter Day. Even we, Host Department, celebrates this very holy-day by giving out the gift for you. How? Currently, we are sharing discounts in all of our Shared Hosting plans as our Easter special gift for you.

Recently, it has become a bigger and bigger question on why small web hosting companies seem to treat and care for their customers better and nicer. Is it really so? Or, is there something behind it?

What Makes Smaller New Hosts Sound Better?

Well, to be honest there is one big thing that small web hosts can do while large hosts may not – personalized services and custom web hosting plans. Of course many people won’t reject this kind of offer. You get whatever you’d like to have. Just request them and they will provide it for you! A custom web hosting plan or your own personalized service is not impossible to get.

Additionally, small web hosting companies also seem to pay attention to each of their customers far more than large hosting companies. Why? Just imagine! To compare, in small hosts or new ones, you might be just one of their fifty to a hundred customers while large web hosting companies have around 100,000 customers or even more. It is not because large hosts do not care for you but more to that their attention is divided for much larger number of clients.

Smaller or new web hosts will more likely to do an extra mile for you. Even better, everything they do, they do it for you – like transferring your website manually or installing certain software you need for your website. That is because as they just start up their business and giving whatever their customers want will help them a lot in growing their name and popularity in the web hosting world.

However, Still Large Hosts Win One Step Forward…

Small and new hosts sound better? Then i’ll let you know that large hosts have better advantages. First, large hosts can offer their web hosting services for reasonable prices than the smaller companies as they are experienced on estimating and calculating their budgets and revenues well to provide the best service with very affordable prices and quality hosting.

And what is more important is they will be there everytime you need them, around the clock technical support (24/7). Whenever you’d like to ask questions or there is any issue with your website, you can always contact them either with chat or ticketing support. You don’t know when you’ll need a support for inquiries or solutions so better to have one that provides you 24/7 technical support you can contact anytime.

Next, you get more disk space and bandwidth. They don’t limit your growth, they don’t charge you everytime you need more resources, and you don’t need to ask for more as they have given you large amount of resources. All have been provided in the web hosting plan you purchase with them. You can grow your online home without limitation.

Also remember that large hosts are more stable and experienced as they have already been in the business for many years. They know how to run their web hosting business successfully. And when you have even very complicated issues, they are experienced to solve it well as they have known how to do this and that in the business for years.

So, figure out wisely which one you’d really like to choose for your important online presence success. The decision is absolutely in your hand.
