, the global leader in IT hosting, today announced a promotion to help resellers increase hosting revenues. Beginning today and through March 31, customers who purchase five or more select servers will receive per-server discounts up to 68 percent. Resellers can use these bulk servers to provide an upgrade path for their larger customers who require a dedicated platform. The additional servers can also accommodate an expanded infrastructure for resellers looking to provide shared or value-added offerings, including applications and custom services.
In the competitive hosting landscape, resellers are tasked with offering their customers a wide range of options, coupled with the best value for their dollar, said Urvish Vashi, general manager of dedicated hosting for The Planet. With this bulk-discount offering, resellers can move their customers to a dedicated environment cost effectively.
Resellers can take advantage of discounts on purchases of five or more of the Celeron 2.0+, the Pentium 4 2.4+, the Dual Xeon 2.4, the Dual Xeon 2.8, the Dual Xeon 3.2 and the Xeon 5130:
- With five to nine servers, pricing ranges from $69 to $119 per month per server.
- With purchases of 10 to 19 servers, prices are further reduced from $59 to $109 per month per server.
- With purchases of 20 or more servers, prices drop to a low of $49 to $99 per month per server.
Resellers can further enhance customer savings by taking advantage of The Planets recently announced unmetered servers promotion. For a limited time, the company is bundling its popular unmetered bandwidth packages - regularly priced at $200 for 10Mbps or $1,800 for 100Mbps of bandwidth per month - for no cost on low-priced servers. For example, the Dual Xeon 3.2, regularly priced at $299 per month, is now available for $144, which includes 10Mbps of unmetered bandwidth. The same server is priced at $544 with 100Mbps of unmetered bandwidth - a combination normally priced at $2,099.
