May 13, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Fasthosts Internet Ltd, (www.fasthosts.co.uk), a leading UK web host, has launched a brand new reseller platform for its UK reseller partners. The solution offers a highly effective platform for structuring and performing a reseller hosting operation. The Fasthosts Reseller package, priced at £50/month+VAT, delivers access to a range of customisable web solutions including hosting, domains and email products at discounted reseller rates and features unlimited web space and bandwidth. Presently, new resellers will benefit from a 6 months free offer, allowing them to build their reseller business with no subscription costs. Fasthosts' new platform sets a new standard in enabling resellers to develop a profitable business in this growing sector.
Reseller web hosting offers a highly profitable business opportunity for IT professionals and entrepreneurs. Resellers can combine re-branded white-label web solutions with their own services, such as web design, programming or IT advice, to create tailored services for niche markets and so charge premium prices. Users earn recurring profits on the items they sell, are free to set their own price points and may charge for free elements such as unlimited web space, website traffic and email accounts.
Fasthosts' new reseller platform provides a market-leading level of usability, transparency and control for a reseller. The Fasthosts Reseller package, currently available with 3 months free, offers a high degree of freedom to structure hosting plans – resellers can create a customised package for each end customer, design and create their own range of packages or simply resell Fasthosts' own off-the-shelf packages. This flexibility means that resellers can tailor their services closely to their customers' needs and remain competitive.
Fasthosts' Reseller Control Dashboard has been re-engineered to reduce administration for resellers, improve efficiency and is highly intuitive. The custom branding tools enable the reseller to customise their customers' control panels, webmail and SiteBuilders. Within the package, the reseller calculator provides instant cost transparency and the advanced customer management area provides an excellent overview of a reseller's hosting business.
Stephen Holford, Chief Marketing Officer, Fasthosts Internet said "We are focused on making sure our resellers can grow a successful and profitable business, even in this tough economic climate. Our service enables you to not only create your own brand, but also create your own packages. The new platform itself is designed to satisfy the technical needs of a demanding hosting provider and also inspire the complete beginner".
Fasthosts' philosophy for reseller hosting is designed to free resellers to achieve the best possible business model. Fasthosts provides both Linux and MS web hosting, a comprehensive range of domain name registrations and award winning MS Exchange email packages for resale. Other reseller hosting providers can place limits on web space per end customer and levy expensive charges for bandwidth used. Fasthosts removes these risks with its unlimited web spaceand bandwidth. While resellers are free to make whatever charges they wish, Fasthosts resellers will themselves never face their users being cut-off or unexpected charges from their provider.
Another unique aspect of Fasthosts' reseller operation is the option to sell an off-the-shelf Fasthosts hosting plan that is provided free of charge to its resellers. The high quality free hosting package, one of a range of off-the-shelf plans available, has 10GB web space allowance, 5 FTP Accounts, unlimited email accounts and is ASP / PHP5 / Perl compatible. The package is permanently available for resellers to sell on an unlimited basis and is totally free of reseller charges, meaning a remarkable 100 per cent profit on each one sold.
In recent months, Fasthosts has promoted reseller hosting as a low risk and profitable way to develop an IT related enterprise. Recent research conducted by the company showed that 80 per cent of companies that begin to resell web hosting in addition to their regular products or services earn a profit from the practice within 1 year. By offering web solutions, many can bolster their revenues and prolong client relationships.
Holford added, "As a reseller hosting specialist, Fasthosts aims to deliver its resellers unrivalled support and innovation in equal measures".
As a reseller hosting specialist and the UK's number 1 reseller web host, Fasthosts is well placed to offer a high quality reseller web hosting service. The company provides its UK resellers with 24/7 dedicated service with UK based technical support via phone or email. All UK customer websites are hosted within the company's state-of-the-art data centre in Gloucester, and benefit from high-speed connectivity.
