Reseller Hosting Tips – Finding The Best Hosting Reseller Around
When getting started with reseller hosting, you will probably want to find the most reputable or best hosting reseller around. But how would you know who the best hosting reseller is? Many offer similar packages, with similar technology included for similar prices. Many claim to offer the best service, but may sometimes fail to deliver. One good way to decide is to research the hosting company that has won the largest amounts of reseller hosting awards.
There are several other reseller hosting awards within the industry. Some of the most popular and prestigious of these are awarded by:
Web Hosting Geeks
Find My Host
Dedicated Server Directory
Web Hosting Directory
Web Hosting Rating
Top Web Host Review
Web Hosting Stuff
By the way, all above mentioned websites provide a wealth of information for new hosting resellers. There are others too, but these companies are sufficient to provide an example. The criteria used to judge hosting resellers varies. For some awards, companies track monthly votes for different categories. For others, the number of hits to each competitor’s profile page is tracked. All take into account value for money offered.
One would think it quite a challenge to pick which of these recommendations to go with. But there are a few things they all have in common. HostGator has won a yearly award, regular monthly awards, or at least featured in the shortlist for most of these. Other competitors have included Codero, Just Host and Verio. These companies are also featured throughout various reseller lists, but not as frequently as HostGator.
Perhaps the best known award for HostGator’s reseller service was awarded by About.com readers. According to Alexa.com, About.com is currently the 64th most popular website in the world. About.com has a series of Reader’s choice awards. In 2010, HostGator was awarded the ‘Best in Reseller Hosting’. Votes were cast after consideration of uptime guarantees, good customer service, and general value for money.
HostGator has also received awards in other categories, such as Best Green Host, Fastest Growing company, best Linux web host and so on.
HostGator offers 5 different reseller plans, starting from a budget plan, to a plan with 200GB disk space and 1400GB bandwidth a month. All packages come with 24/7/365 support and tonnes of useful tools such as cPanels, Site Builder Software, website templates, billing systems and much more.
