Windows Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: VPS vs Reseller Hosting

clock April 28, 2016 19:54 by author Dan

Mentioned the 3-letter words, VPS, it carves a smile to certain people. Why? Because it resembles a dedicated server. This is particularly a cheerful news for those folks who wish to own a dedicated server but cannot afford to do so. Basically, as most of you would have known by now, VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. The physical server is separated into a few partition and these partitions are the VPS-es. It gives you the feeling of having a stand-alone server when you purchase the hosting spaces. You are isolated from your neighbours and barely know each other although under the same roof.

What about reseller hosting? I'd define reseller hosting as an account in shared server environment. Simple as that, almost the same as shared hosting. But the difference between reseller hosting and shared hosting is that with reseller hosting, you can create multiple accounts of shared hosting. So, to choose VPS or reseller hosting? This is a big question for almost everyone because it's kind of confusing as there are pros and cons to every decision that you make. Let's just analyse some of the features of VPS and reseller hosting, hopefully will make your hosting decision not much of a headache.

VPS - A solution for dedicated server

VPS offers you the features of dedicated server but it's more to a dedicated server being shared by a few other tenants. I know what you are thinking now. But bear in mind that I mentioned "a few" other tenants. Which means, it is not shared by as many other websites as a shared hosting in a physical server. A reliable hosting provider will have the maximum amount of tenants in a physical server to a certain degree so that the resources of the server can fully support the minimum resources allocated for every client. The most precious feature of VPS would be the root access. Every client will be provided a root access, hence, you can install anything that you like from softwares to Operating System so long it has proper licenses.This means you have the ability to install software which your provider doesn't even have or provide to its other existing shared hosting or reseller hosting clients. Those who long for a peace of mind, will be happy to have owned a VPS because with VPS you are isolated from other clients' VPS-es and regardless of how heavy their traffic is, it won't affect your website. In addition, everyone is provided with a certain amount of CPU usage , RAM usage and bandwidth usage. Although their traffic has drained the amount of bandwidth, it will be the bandwidth allocated to them and has got nothing to do with you although they are your neighbours in the same server.

The above features of VPS seem tempting but do remember that you have to do all the installation yourself. You need to know a bit of server maintenance knowledge and also software-related stuffs. Although you can always refer your problem to your hosting provider, I believe you will be charged with an amount of fees.

Reseller Hosting - Ease your life!

Does reseller hosting offer you a better solution? Well, it depends on people. If you are a person who wants freedom of this and that, you might not be able to survive under reseller hosting. Reseller hosting is good in the sense that it's more organized as everything is setup for you by your hosting provider. You are given the WHM (Web Host Manager) and with WHM you can customize the hosting plans (webspace, bandwidth and etc.) for your resold accounts. A resold account is just like any other shared hosting account, with a cPanel as its control panel under Linux platform. You can sell your resold accounts at your own price and some hosting providers offer the private label reseller plan(meaning you can have your own brand name, thus having your own nameservers). In other words, your resold clients will only know you as their hosting provider and won't figure out you are reselling unless you tell them when they ask you. With reseller hosting, you are bound to what the hosting provider offers you, especially the softwares and applications. Hence, like I've mentioned in the first sentence, reseller hosting might not suit you if you want freedom. However, it's useful if clients do not mind what the hosting providers offer them particularly in terms of applications. Imagine you don't have to get yourself in with all the fuss of installing and configuring this and that. All you do is via the control panel provided to you, then you can start reselling already. In my opinion, reseller hosting is never a bad option and would still be a competitive option towards VPS. It is indeed reliable and useful when you think of the user-friendliness it provides to those who are not so familiar with hosting related stuff.

In general, it is widely speculated that in near future, VPS might take over the role of Reseller Hosting, but truth is yet to be known. Let those hosting fans decide for themselves which one holds to be a better option.

ASPHostPortal.com Announces ASP.NET Core 1.0 Hosting Solution

clock April 26, 2016 23:39 by author Dan

ASPHostPortal.com is a well-known Windows hosting company and even one of the most famous, though it is one of the oldest Windows hosting companies. Our packages have gone through major changes recently, and all of them goes for the goodness of every customers. Today, we launch ASP.NET Core 1.0 hosting with interested hosting packages.

3 months ago, the ASP.NET team announced during the weekly ASP.NET Community Standup was decided to rename ASP.NET 5 to ASP.NET Core 1.0. The whole “ASP.NET 5 MVC 6 Web API 2 sub-component version scheme was confusing. They’ve been working towards “One ASP.NET” now for years and they’re there. ASP.NET Core is versioned as 1.0 as it’s a near complete rewrite of ASP.NET with many new features and capabilities. It’s clearly a different product than ASP.NET 4.6.

.NET Core is a modular, streamlined subset of the .NET Framework and CLR. It is fully open-source and provides a common set of libraries that can be targeted across numerous platforms. Its factored approach allows applications to take dependencies only on those portions of the CoreFX that they use, and the smaller runtime is ideal for deployment to both small devices (though it doesn’t yet support some) as well as cloud-optimized environments that need to be able to run many small applications side-by-side. Support for targeting .NET Core is built into the ASP.NET 5 project templates that ship with Visual Studio 2015.

ASPHostPortal.com offers ASP.NET Core 1.0 Hosting with an interested hosting plan. We support this new technology with affordable price, a lot of ASP.NET features, 99.99% uptime guarantee, 24/7 support, and 30 days money back guarantee. We strive to make sure that all customers have the finest web-hosting experience as possible.

How to Choose the Best Reseller Hosting Service

Planning to launch a business selling DNS services? The most crucial decision that you will make which will have a bearing on your profitability and longevity will be choosing the right reseller hosting service. With so tens of thousands of reseller hosting services available on the web, zoning in on a particular provider that will suit your needs can sometimes be a little daunting. A good reseller program should give you access to the best features, great manageability as well as affordable costs.
Here are the top tips on how you can select the best reseller program for your DNS services:

 

An Easy to Use Reseller cPanel

As a web hosting reseller, you will be implementing, managing and monitoring numerous user accounts. These users expect top reliability because their websites play a very important role in their businesses. As a reseller, it is advisable to choose a reseller hosting solution that is convenient and easy to use in order to manage your client accounts efficiently. You do not want to waste so much time in simply allocating and managing resources to various users. Whatever reseller web host that you choose should have an intuitive and state-of-the-art cpanel that allows you to manage your reseller business with relative ease.

Value Added Features

What value-added features or frills does the reseller program offer apart from its basic hosting package? Web hosting clients love value-add when it comes to the hosting solution so the more the merrier. Ensure that the hosting plan that you choose supports multiple applications as well as features. It should also support multiple programming languages. The last thing you would want is turning away converted customers simply because the hosting solution you chose does not have certain features.

Is it a white label hosting solution?

Is the reseller service brandable? A lot of online entrepreneurs want to build their own brands and sell their products in their brand name instead of using the name of the parent reseller hosting provider. It is therefore important to choose a white-label reseller that allows you to brand your hosting portal.

Customized Plans

Customers are generally looking for specific requirements. Do not herd your customers into fixed hosting plans with little space for flexibility. Choose reseller hosting plans which allow for customizations so that you can offer your customers tailor-made solutions. This will help to sell more and generate more profits from your reseller business.

Offer Additional DNS Services

Do not just sell reseller hosting. Choose a reseller hosting solution which offers buyers a one-stop shop for all their DNS needs including reseller domain names, SSL certificates and much more. This allows you to sell more and upsell products in order to increase your revenues exponentially.

The Hosting Company Should be Reliable

Reliability of the parent web host is actually the most important factor as the success of your reseller business will rely on it. Check if the hosting company has a good track record and robust hosting infrastructure that will ensure the reliability of your hosting service.



Windows Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: What It Takes To Become A Web Hosting Reseller

clock April 8, 2016 19:19 by author Armend

Becoming a web hosting reseller can be a profitable way to earn residual income. Owning a hosting business allows you to set up, manage, and operate the back-end of websites, emails and domain management for your company and others as well. There are many options for doing this which we will examine in this article. We will also look at pros and cons of the industry to see if becoming a reseller is the right choice for you.

Let’s look at the options for becoming a reseller:

  • Reseller Hosting:  This form of hosting is often the least expensive and easiest way to begin a hosting business. By using one control panel, you can manage multiple clients who will also have access to a control panel to make changes and updates to their service.  Many clients may not have knowledge or a background in this area and will be completely dependent on you for setup and changes to their service.  This allows you, the reseller, to charge a bit more for this hands-on service. Shared hosting is usually located on a server which you will share with other hosting companies and individuals.
  • VPS Hosting: Virtual Private Server Hosting is a virtual “slice” of a much larger main server node. The main server node is often a very powerful dedicated server which is divided up into a number of different virtual environments. While it is possible to become a reseller on a VPS plan, these accounts are typically meant for development purposes only because resources are somewhat limited when compared to other forms of hosting. Regardless of this fact, many have come to view VPS hosting as a great transition from reseller hosting to a dedicated server. This is good to have while your company grows and expands.
  • Dedicated Servers: A dedicated server allows you to use all of the resources of a single server machine. The equipment is owned and operated by the company that owns the datacenter where the server is located but use of the machine is exclusively yours. By getting a managed dedicated server, all of the maintenance and troubleshooting of the machine are the responsibility of the datacenter.
  • Colocation Servers:  If you own your own server and are familiar with the ins and outs of server management, you may choose to store and run your machine from a datacenter.  This allows you to store your machine in a secure place with more bandwidth, fire protection, backup generators and security than a normal office building. You can also set up your own hardware and software for your business.

Here are the steps to beginning your own reseller business:

  • If you are unfamiliar with the world of web hosting, email management and domain services, we suggest you take the time to research and understand the full scope of what you will be undertaking. Many web designers and coders find that transitioning to also being a reseller allows full control of a client’s web presence and management.
  • Reselling is much like any other business in that it requires hard work, effort and some start-up capital. Like any business, you will need:
  • A powerful, reliable computer for running your business. A laptop will allow you to work from multiple locations.
  • High speed internet. Get the best you can afford.
  • A phone line dedicated to the business and possibly a fax line. An internet capable phone to receive emails and calls on the go is ideal.
  • A tax license, occupational license and incorporation papers.
  • A bank account with your company name or DBA (Doing Business As) with a debit card.
  • A merchant account and gateway software for taking credit cards.
  • I also suggest a private work area in your home or office with a comfortable chair.
  • Choose a hosting plan from the aforementioned options based on your budget and the amount of customers you feel you can grow to in the next three years.
  • Get a good web host.  This is probably the most important step in this process or I wouldn’t have underlined it. Choosing a web hosting company to resell for is crucial; take into consideration the following:
    • Does the company have a good reputation? Be sure to check out their track record by researching online and visiting reputable forums such as www.webhostingtalk.com .
    • Do they own their own datacenter? While this is not mandatory, a company that has its own datacenter is better able to communicate between departments such as accounting, support, security and maintenance. Their ability to monitor and work within their own company to perform all functions of service saves you time and frustration.
    • Do they have 24/7/365 support? Look at all of the options that your host offers such as email ticketing, live chat and phone support.
    • Does your host support the platform you choose to work with? (Windows/Linux).
    • Does your host have the software options you need such as a good control panel (like cPanel/Plesk), accounting management software (like WHMCS) and web development tools?
    • Does your host offer a manageable monthly plan and easy payment options?
  • Learn and understand your software to manage tickets, accounting and your control panel. Set up a sample site to get to know your way around.
  • Set customer pricing.  This can be tricky. You are competing with companies who offer $1.00 pricing online and others who can charge hundreds of dollars.  Research pricing and then break down your resources. Divide up server cost, operational costs and other factors. Websites needing secure certificates for e-commerce will be charged a higher rate as will companies demanding more space and bandwidth.
  • Build an e-commerce website with a helpdesk.  Adding an ecommerce option to your company’s website will allow you to take credit card payments online, saving you the hassle of cashing checks.  Encourage users to set up automated billing so that you have to worry less about tracking each payment.  Also set up a help desk option where customers can contact you if trouble arises.
  • Create business documents. Templates found online can be helpful in creating proposals, agreements and terms of service. Be sure you carefully craft these important documents and have your lawyer review them for accuracy. Also create an informative email to send to customers after they have signed up giving them their access codes, URLs, and email information. We have found it is helpful to highlight and bold the first line that reads, “IMPORTANT. This email contains important information and passwords you will need now and in the future. You must keep this email.”
  • Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell and advertise.” – Laurence J. Peter.  Be sure to advertise your site accordingly. If you are new then you may want to learn ways to market yourself for little or no cost. You can also do banner advertisements or network ads. Advertising can get expensive so reach out to those you know first.

So, with all of the beginning steps out of the way, there are a few things you should be prepared for in the reseller business:

  • Pros
    • Reseller hosting offers you a way to earn residual income.  Many customers, after initial setup, will need very little work every month to maintain their account, but the same check keeps coming in, month after month. These add up quickly and can turn into a tidy profit if you can get customers on board right away.
    • With most reseller options there is no equipment to buy. Therefore you can save yourself the expense of purchasing a server and lease space on a server in the datacenter, usually on a monthly plan.
    • A reseller business is very compatible with other services such as website design, website development, gaming forums, domain name registration and blogging.
    • Many resellers have been known to work from home in their pajamas.
    • You may never meet your clients.
  • Cons
    • You must be knowledgeable at handling the ins and outs of web hosting, this can take some time for those not familiar with the industry.
    • Problems happen at the oddest times in this industry. A customer usually forgets his password right as you are sitting down to dinner or boarding a plane.
    • Web hosting is a 24/7/365 business and you will receive emails and phone calls during the holidays, on vacation and on Sundays. Due to the time sensitive nature of the business, you will need to respond as soon as possible.
    • Many customers will need to be hand-held through every facet of your relationship.
    • You may never meet your clients. (this can also be a pro)

The reseller business can offer you some insight into many types of businesses in a variety of industries which can help you manage and grow your own respective business.  Sound like too much work? Consider becoming an affiliate where the web host pays you for leads you send to them. Each time you send a lead, you receive money.  Good luck with your new endeavor!



Windows Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Tips For Success in Reseller Hosting

clock April 1, 2016 17:49 by author Armend

Time = Money

The first thing you’ll learn about running your own web hosting company is that time = money and while this might be an old cliché it certainly rings true in this fast-moving and ever-changing environment. Keep track of your expenses and know exactly what your £’s are getting you. Measure this closely against your revenue and if you are seeing a negative return then it’s time to revaluate or try a different tactic.
Manage your time effectively and monitor the time spent on each client. If you spend too much time helping a client out with a major issue and ignoring the smaller issues, then they can come back to haunt you. Choose a top Reseller Package with a reliable hosting company to ensure as much help as possible when it comes to managing your servers and thus in turn helping to support your clients.

 

Big Up Your Backend

One of the most important factors in becoming a successful reseller is having a powerful backend. Your backend needs to be able to offer you instant scalability and potential for mark-up and profit while offering your clients an easy signup process. The offering on Standard Reseller Hosting Packages means that you do not have to invest heavily in servers while at the same time your hosting company is responsible for monitoring the servers and ensuring minimum to zero downtime.
When looking at reseller packages we would recommend going for the high-end packages as these have numerous benefits including free SSL certificates which you can sell on to your clients, the ability to create your own ticketing system, cPanel licensing is taken care of as your clients are licensed through the hosting company, E-commerce packages are included and you’ll get guaranteed SLA’s.

Conversions mean Capital

This next tip is vital to the success of your business and will help you to increase conversions and therefore sales. Optimise your landing/sales pages so that you can convert potential customers interest into cash for your business. Here’s how:

  • The price must be competitive and clearly visible next to the product – remember to confirm contract type and length here too
  • Display the benefits and features of hosting with you – remember a benefit is a direct advantage of a particular feature
  • Special Offers and Promotions are great ways to increase conversion – be sure to add these to a product which isn’t achieving the desired results
  • Is your Hosting service reliable? If you claim it is, then backup it up with stats or figures to prove it
  • Remember to add a ‘Call to action’ or ‘Buy’ button after every product! This is key and without it your conversions will equal a big fat ZERO

Market Your Business and Watch it Grow

Powerful backend. Check. Reliable reseller hosting company. Check. Optimised pages and clear sales path. Check.
But wait, where’s the traffic?
Here are a few marketing tips to help generate traffic to your website:

  • Make sure your web pages are search engine friendly and optimised for web hosting to ensure a steady stream of traffic from potential customers
  • Start a industry related blog – this is a simple and cost effective way to generate traffic
  • Join web hosting forums to gain extra exposure – be sure to comment, offer advice and submit relevant posts
  • There are plenty of free press release sites where you can write PR statements and circulate them around the web
  • Social media sites, Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn, are a great channel for building relationships, interacting with your customers and offering promo’s and discounts
  • Try link building exercises with other sites by offering them hosting sponsorship

Cheap Reseller Hosting

We’re a company that works differently to most. Value is what we output and help our customers achieve, not how much money we put in the bank. It’s not because we are altruistic. It’s based on an even simpler principle. "Do good things, and good things will come to you".

Success for us is something that is continually experienced, not something that is reached. For us it is all about the experience – more than the journey. Life is a continual experience. We see the Internet as being an incredible amplifier to the experience of life for all of us. It can help humanity come together to explode in knowledge exploration and discussion. It is continual enlightenment of new ideas, experiences, and passions
