    Performance metrics of a good reseller


    I am trying to analyze the features based on which people select a host provider to get reseller hosting packages.

    Is it a matter of cost or other factors?

    Usually, Web Development companies opt reseller hosting packages to increase business revenue. Even, those people who willing to start their own web hosting business with minimum amount of investment can goes with reseller account.

    In reseller hosting primary web host play their role behind the screen and provides technical support, server monitoring and other essential services round the clock.

    I think reseller hosting is a great option for every online business entrepreneur.

    The cost of a solution is always important. Otherwise there would not be so many risky and very cheap offerings around.

    Cost factor plays big but not the main role, the main as for me is a reputation of provider

    The major factors are:
    • Reliability
    • Cost
    • Support

    There's no point buying into a $400/month plan that gives you enough to resell 2-3 accounts, but gives you a 100% guaranteed uptime and 24-7 support as you'll never cover your costs. On the other hand it's also bad to get a $2.95/month plan that offers unlimited everything, as these are always (no really... ALWAYS) oversold, slow, and about as reliable as the reception of a cheap satelite dish in a bad storm.

    One reseller will never suit ever person. Each person/company/whatever has differing needs, so even though you can go by others recommendations, the only person that can tell you if a plan is suited to your needs is you.

    There are a number of web hosting companies that offer such plans. However, you need to very cautious to find web hosting reseller programs that best suit your needs. The following are some of the features of a good web hosting reseller program.

    - The disk space of your web hosting reseller program need to be at least 5 GB and may range up to 20 GB depending upon the package you have opt for.
    - Most of the best web hosting reseller programs provide multiple and unlimited domain support.
    - The data transfer usually ranges from 50 to 1200 GB and depends upon your requirement and budget.
    - Make sure that your web hosting company provides a powerful control panel so that you can manage your own databases, set up your email accounts and view the statistic of your website.
