Reseller hosting, sometimes referred to as white label hosting, allows you to create your own web hosting company without having to incur the costs of server maintenance, software, site uptime, and more. Reseller hosting is perfect for freelancers or agencies offering web design, development, and other business services to their clients. With reseller hosting, clients purchase and host their websites through you as if you were the hosting company.
Yes, that’s definitely the idea! Reseller hosting is designed for you to make money. You get to promote your own brand, receive ongoing income from your customers, and bundle hosting with other services you offer. WHMCS is a comprehensive client management and billing software that we include for free with all HostGator reseller plans.
With reseller hosting, you essentially set up your own web hosting business, with HostGator working behind the scenes to provide the technology. Our affiliate program, on the other hand, allows you to refer clients directly to HostGator in exchange for a commission of up to $125 per signup. Reseller hosting is a good option if you prefer ongoing income and want to offer more services to your clients. If you don’t want to worry about providing technical support for the customer and just wish to send referrals from your own website, our affiliate program may be a better fit for you.
