If you have been thinking of starting a business without much investment then starting your own web hosting company or business is one of the best options to dominate the internet market. But if you choose to have dedicated servers from where you can sell domain and host then you will have to bear a handsome amount of expenditure. On the other hand, reselling is the best choice to start a business with a small amount of investment. There is a misconception among people that ‘It is impossible to open and operate a business with a small amount of investment’ but it is misleading and demotivating many to start and maneuver a web hosting costing company.
Opening your own website hosting company will not only give you the opportunity to earn money but also allow you to grow other businesses under your title. Interestingly, web hosting business has huge potential in the market (if you can promote so depends on you) because these days individual, company or business proprietors are driving toward the online business which includes creating websites, mobile applications and many other mediums of marketing and selling their product or services.
To the day, many web hosting companies have been introduced in the market to meet the demand of the customer. Unfortunately, among those web hosting companies some fail to cater the quality service to their customers. Consequently, consumers, looking for genuine and best web hosting services are sometimes driven toward under-served web hosting companies. Eventually, they become frustrated and continue looking for quality products. This creates a gap in the market as well as an opportunity to create a sustainable and profitable web hosting business by providing the best service to the customer and emerge as a golden star in the market.
To start a web hosting company on your own, you must create a To-Do list, so that you can execute one by one and walk in the right direction to become successful.

Before entering the marketplace you need to spend time and give effort into researching the market closely. As a result, you will find a suitable niche under the website hosting selling procedure. The more research you will do the more insights and convenient way you will find business. However, as it is mentioned earlier, there are already many web hosting companies and reseller companies available in the market, so you need to define your products more precisely and determine your targeted customer.
- Find Suitable Partner
Finding and choosing the right partner will not only help your business to secure a sustainable place in the market but reach the peak of success. You need to take various aspects under consideration while choosing a business partner, such as quality, price, customer service, backup facility, revenue collection, and many others.
Another important factor is that entrepreneurs become vexatious while finding a suitable partner to become a reseller as there are so many options such as The Elector, BlueHost, Hostgator, and many others. Among all the web hosting companies, The Elector is the best option so far. There are many reasons behind claiming this statement.
The Elector is a UK-based company selling quality service to their customer to meet 100% satisfaction. They have a convenient, affordable, and most importantly lucrative reselling price plan for the resellers. In their reseller list, you will find that they offer both cPanel reseller hosting and DirectAdmin reseller hosting packages at the most affordable rate. For instance, their cPanel reseller hosting package “cPanel Reseller – 10” starts from £5.99/mo including 10 cPanel Accounts, 10GB Storage, Unlimited Bandwidth, Unlimited Subdomains, Unlimited Email Accounts, Unlimited MySQL Databases, Unlimited FTP Accounts, Control Panel cPanel / WHM, 30 EP Per cPanel Account, Free SSL Certificates, Custom NameServers, Free Daily Backups, Free Migration, 24/7 Support, and everything you need to deliver top-notch services to your customer. Other than this package and cPanel web hosting they also have other packages to sell in the market.
Moreover, there are two more things to highlight which are each package comes with a convenient price plan per month so there is no hassle and complexity in price. Another thing is that essential software is Included as Standard with all reseller plans.
- Gear up To Sell
Once you have taken the reseller package from a web hosting company according to your budget and plan, all you need to do is build a website for your company including Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts to present and sell your products. Before that, another crucial step you need to do is determining the price of your service. That is where you decide on what price you are going to sell your products. While creating a price plan, you need to keep the competitor’s price plan in mind, otherwise, you will not be able to survive in the market if the price is too high. Also, don’t make the price too because it may create confusion among the customers.
- Now Emerge In The Market
So, you are in the final step and ready to launch your web hosting company in the market. To bloom and stand in the market, consult or take help from business experts so that you know what you are doing and your position among all the web hosting companies. It is worth mentioning that, always stay clear and accountable to your customer. Be open and honest about any problems or downtime. Keep customers informed and in the loop, or else you are more likely to lose customer trust and eventually drop from the position.
Another important factor is that a proper refund policy, terms, and conditions can save you from defamation or lawsuits. So, put these on your list as well.
To sum up, Mark Twain once said, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started”. So, once you are determined to open and do a web hosting business all you need to do is follow those aforementioned steps to earn money with a small amount of investment and marketing. What are you waiting for? Ready, Set, and Go!
