Here is why you should prefer Reseller Hosting?

The Information Revolution has taken Australia by storm at the beginning of the new Millennium. No one knew the power of the internet till then. The information dissemination that took place as a result of it triggered a lot of opportunities for the young and the old. People began to think out of the box for making their living. A lot of startups were centered in and on the internet. E-commerce sites have become very popular and customers have begun opening up to the idea of shopping online.

For a very long time it was believed that business could only be run through a brick and mortar set up. Even a few years ago, it was hard to imagine that business can also be set up on the internet. Slowly but surely, people have warmed up to the idea that e commerce is a viable proposition.

Today, top businesses world over prefer to have their presence on the internet by hosting their own website. A survey whose subjects included big companies concluded that organizations with a website had a better reputational standing among its customers.

A website can be hosted in two ways. The first option is to buy space directly from an Australian web host provider and then set up a website. The second option is to buy sufficient bandwidth and disk space from a Web Reseller and then host the company’s website.

A web reseller acts like a retailer who purchases bandwidth from the host service provider at wholesale rates and then resells it bit by bit to individual businesses that would use it to host their website. The web reseller may also provide for other services like website designing and other gigs. The reseller sells the bandwidth for a marginal profit to his customers. Additionally he may also be paid commission by the parent host service provider for facilitating sale of its bandwidth. Therefore, he also acts like an agent to the service provider

Even though hosting the website through both avenues is possible. Hosting a website through a web reseller has its own set of benefits. Which are:

  1. Good understanding between the parties:

There is a comprehensive understanding between the parent web hosting service provider and the web reseller wherein the reseller web hoster has access to the parent providers tools for serving his customers in Australia. He also has real time access to his customer’s business related information.

  1. More economical than direct hosting:

Since the web hosting company mostly provides individual services it turns out to be very costly. A reseller on the other hand, provides a packaged deal to fulfill various demands of the customer’s business which also turns out to be cheaper.

  1. Simple and more responsive:

Reseller web hosting is simpler than direct web hosting. But at the same time, it is more responsive than direct hosting as the reseller has a relatively small number of customers to manage. The trouble shooting is fast as compared to direct hosting.
