Choosing a Reseller Hosting Company
So you have taken the first step towards starting a web hosting business or are simply looking to consolidate multiple shared hosting accounts spread out across the web into a single place for ease of management. A reseller hosting plan is a way to go! However, searching for the best reseller hosting company reveals numerous results on Google with each site having their own opinion and more importantly most of the results turning out to be paid affiliate links or paid promotion.
Do your Research
The best way to go about this is to do your own research. Look for customer reviews on public review portals such as RateLobby, TrustPilot, WebHostingGeeks, and others. Avoid relying on blog posts such as “Top 10 Reseller Hosting Companies” or “The Best Reseller Hosting Companies”, most of these are just affiliate posts.
Always, speak to a company before signing up with them. If they offer a live chat option on their website, speak with a representative who may be available, if not try sending them an email via their contact form or their sales email address. Preliminary conversation with a provider helps you understand their response times to emails and inquiries and also how customer oriented or focused the company is. This is also a good time to ask a few questions that you may have about the company.
Additionally, the feature set offered with a reseller hosting plan plays a major role in making a decision. While we could list out an endless number of features and options to look for when choosing a reseller hosting company, for the sake of brevity and this article we will limit ourselves to the most important factors that you should look for when choosing a reseller hosting company, presented in an infographic.
