Reseller Hosting: All major providers in comparison
Reseller packages from webhosters give you the opportunity to offer your customers their own webhosting packages. Here are nine reseller hosters.
The most popular reseller hoster
With reseller packages or programs, web hosts provide their infrastructure to offer web hosting themselves. This might not only be interesting if you want to get fully involved in the web hosting business, but if you might want to offer the customer “one-stop shop” – besides hosting the website also hosting. The latter scenario, however, may entail a considerable additional time expenditure.
For this review, we rely on the results of a community survey. Only those providers who explicitly list reseller packages or a reseller program on their website will be listed. If not mentioned separately, the server location is Germany and the contract period is one month.
Hostnet is the winner of our community survey and offers its reseller packages under the heading “Agency Server”. The cheapest package is available for 29.99 euros per month. The more expensive package will provide more memory, vCPUs and RAM, otherwise all features are included in all packages. The smallest package offers you 200 gigabyte SSD disk for files and emails, six vCPUs and four gigabytes of RAM. You can host an unlimited number of domains and receive free SSL certificates from Let’s Encrypt – for resellers Hostnet offers individual domain prices upon request.
Apache is used as the web server by default, but Nginx can be installed if necessary – HTTP / 2 is active and you can use a Varnish cache, there are PHP 7 and MySQL 5.6. FTPs, SSH and SFTP are available, as well as e-mail servers. Five system snapshots are included, and you have root access due to the mix of managed and root servers (with limitations such as lack of access to the kernel et cetera).
The Auto-Installer allows you to easily install over 300 applications and perform updates, backups and restores. Existing applications can also be integrated into the auto-installer.
