Some may ask the question: why choose a Windows hosting package when Linux is much cheaper? Well, Linux hosting isn't always the most cost effective solution and the Windows platform has many advantages, benefits that are extended to reseller hosting as well. This article will introduce you to some of the key benefits of Windows-based reseller hosting and explain why you may want to consider it for your reseller business.
An All-in-One Solution
Although Linux is still a very popular and viable platform, many resellers are switching over to the Microsoft system because it offers exclusive advantages as well support for many open-source technologies. Windows can be viewed as an all-in-one hosting solution. Maintaining multiple separate accounts to meet the demand of customer requirements is a thing of the past as this platform makes it possible to host a variety of applications right alongside one another. This means that you can cater to client who prefers an ASP scripted application and MS SQL back-end database as well as the customer who needs a PHP-based script backed by a MySQL database. This is something most Linux and Unix-based reseller hosting packages just can't offer.
Diverse Line of Products and Services
The Windows platform gives you the opportunity to capitalize off a broader range of services.
For example, you can target the Linux audience with the offering of open source technologies like PHP and Perl while still meeting the needs of your Windows customers with ASP, ASP.NET and other Microsoft products. You can label your hosting packages how you see fit based on the needs of the customers. Additionally, intuitive Windows-based control panels like Plesk and DotNetNuke give you the ability to enhance your selling points by placing emphasis on the quality and variety you have to offer. All of these factors increase your chances of enjoying financial success as a reseller.
The Hottest Technologies
Windows reseller hosting provides resellers with the opportunity to leverage the latest innovations available and apply them to their portfolio of services. Highly sought after managed services such as Microsoft Exchange, ActiveSync, Windows Mobile and Sharepoint greatly boost a reseller's potential profits as the market for these services has grown tremendously in recent times. Customers from various industries are increasingly looking to outsource their-IT related needs and the power of Windows hosting and its array of complimenting technologies can enable them to work with greater efficiency while adding to the value of their business.
There are many reasons to consider Windows as your reseller hosting platform of choice. The system is ideal for seasoned developers and also contorts to less experienced users who are already familiar with the Windows desktop and Microsoft Office environment. The technologies offered in this setting make it a viable option for clients who simply want to create a personal site or blog as well as those who are looking to make an impact on the business level. Best of all, Windows reseller hosting allows you to reach out to a wider audience all without losing clients who prefer technologies commonly associated with the Linux platform.
