Reseller Hosting

What is Reseller Hosting?

Reseller web hosting is a type of web hosting. It is a service that is provided by a hosting company such as Afrihost, allocating a certain amount of disk space and bandwidth to a person or business to sell hosting services to third parties for a monthly fee.

The reseller buys the services from the web hosting company at a wholesale price and then resells to third-party clients for a profit.

This solution is ideal for someone who is a web developer, a designer, or someone who wants to have their own business selling web hosting services.

What are the benefits of Reseller Hosting?

Reseller hosting offers some advantages such as:

  • You do not have to maintain the hardware or hosting software yourself.
  • Servers are locally hosted for a faster connection.
  • You can decide what services you want to offer.
  • As a hosting company, you can make money from hosting and creating websites for clients.
  • Make independent control panels for each of your clients through WebHost manager.
  • You can manage each package from the reseller control panel centre.

You will need to register a new domain with Afrihost or have a pre-existing domain for each account you want to add within the reseller portal. The newly created account and the package must be pointed to the domain. We recommend you register a pointed domain with Afrihost for ease of use and support. You may also use an external domain name hosted outside Afrihost.
