Profiting From Dedicated Servers
Reseller hosting is quickly becoming one of the most popular types of web hosting, as more people are realizing the potential for profit in the web hosting industry. With reseller hosting you do not have to own a datacenter, or even a singe web server to begin making residual monthly income with web hosting. Reseller hosting is essentially the drop shipping of the hosting industry, as you're simply the middle man that provides server resources from a larger hosting company.

By building a solid customer base you can begin generating a small profit from each client, by doing absolutely nothing but marketing your hosting services. Unfortunately, most hosting resellers fail within their first month because they're unable to portray their business as an independent and competitive company. The following tips can help you take an unconventional approach to reseller web hosting and begin profiting from a revolutionary new idea.

The Demand for Dedicated Servers

All over the internet people are praising the power and capabilities of dedicated servers, and sooner or later every successful webmaster will try to graduate to a dedicated hosting plan. Most of the hosting customers that are willing to pay a lot of money for hosting prefer dedicated hosting, and definitely do not want to go through a middleman to purchase a shared hosting plan. Of course, their are plenty of clients out there that are willing to pay for shared plans that can be created quickly within your reseller hosting account, however you're leaving money on the table when you refuse to cater to the needs of the dedicated hosting industry.

Expanding Your Reseller Hosting Plan

By expanding your reseller hosting plan you'll be able to offer larger plans that can mimic the capabilities of a dedicated server. This will at least put you in the dedicated hosting market and give you the opportunity to capitalize on this section of the hosting industry. After operating a reseller hosting plan for a while you begin to notice that a lot of online business owners simply will not settle for the smaller hosting plans, and in order to stay competitive you will need to have larger plans available as well. Even though you cannot technically offer a dedicated server to your customers, it is possible to offer extensive plans that can match the capabilities of an actual dedicated hosting plan.

Offering Dedicated Hosting Plans Independently

Since you can't offer dedicated hosting plans directly through your reseller hosting account, you'll have to middle man the service independently by offering dedicated plans for a slightly raised price. After the customer has paid you for the dedicated plan each month, you can then pay the actual hosting provider and keep the remaining profit. While it may seem as if a lot of people will not be willing to purchase a dedicated plan for a higher price, there a lot of novice webmasters that will see your offer as a steal, especially if you market it the right way.
