Web Hosting NewsGloucester, UK – Fasthosts Internet Ltd, the UK’s number one web hosting company, today reached out to IT and creative professionals and entrepreneurs with an offer that provides 6 months free reseller web hosting. The risk-free trial, worth £300, is the latest in Fasthosts’ efforts to promote reseller web hosting as an opportunity for individuals and companies to grow their income. Fasthosts’ Reseller Package enables a user to retail web solutions including hosting, domains, email and broadband, under their own brand and earn profit on the items they sell. A recent survey by Fasthosts found that 80 per cent of businesses that begin to resell web hosting in addition to their regular products or services earn a profit from the practice. Fasthosts’ 6 Months Free offer comprises an excellent opportunity to enter this growth area of IT.

In today’s challenging economy, the concept of reseller web hosting is a compelling way to develop an enterprise such as an IT or marketing related business. Fasthosts’ Reseller web hosting equips an entrepreneur with everything they need to retail own-branded web solutions (such as hosting, domains and email solutions) at prices set by themselves. Resellers can combine 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.

The Fasthosts 6 Months Free offer goes further to provide an excellent risk-free trial that enables a business to begin reselling. The Fasthosts Reseller package, usually £50/month+VAT, is unique in featuring unlimited web space and bandwidth meaning greatly reduced costs to resellers. Unlimited POP3 email enables resellers to tailor packages closely to their clients’ needs. A wide range of brandable website publishing tools, website tracking and marketing tools provide further opportunities to earn revenue.

Steve Holford, Chief Marketing Officer, Fasthosts Internet Ltd, said “In a difficult economic climate, reseller web hosting is a low risk and profitable way to grow a business. Our 6 month free trial is an unrivalled opportunity for SMEs to experiment with their market and see what difference the new revenue can make”.

Recent research appears to support the viability of reseller hosting for many companies. A survey of 793 Fasthosts resellers found that 80 per cent of businesses that begin to resell web hosting in addition to their regular products or services earn a profit from the practice within 1 year. Furthermore, two thirds (66 per cent) found it ‘easy’ to cross-sell hosting to their existing customer base, and half (50 per cent) have increased their average length of service per client as a result of reselling web solutions.

The recurring fees model and healthy profit margins involved with web hosting can also be attractive for those under pressure to grow revenue streams. 64 per cent of resellers reported that they had increased overall ‘revenue per client’ as a result of reselling web solutions. The excellent scalability of web hosting means that resellers can grow a new hosting business flexibly and at their own speed. All technicalities and back-end processes are handled by the provider but the reseller retains all customer liaison and marketing themselves.

Holford added, “Unlike other reseller propositions, a hosting reseller is free to focus on their sales and tailoring their new service to their corporate identity or existing offerings. By virtue of this, we expect to see reseller hosting further increase in popularity this year”.

As the UK’s leading reseller hosting provider, Fasthosts offers a comprehensive range of reseller web solutions including domain name registrations, email solutions (including mobile email services), shared web hosting, and feature-rich broadband packages.
