17 thoughts to “Benefits Of Having A Hostgator Reseller Account For Your Online Business”

  1. Hi Sergio,
    I recently looked at the Hostgator reseller page to check out all the options available but they don’t explain the main benefits of a reseller account anyway near as clearly as you did here.
    I have recently bought hosting with HostGator (for three years) but if I had seen this post before getting the hosting package I currently have then I can say, that without a doubt, this is the deal I would have gone for.
    Another great post in such an excellent series of posts.

    1. Hey Pat,

      I’m totally with you man. I pretty much had to take a leap of faith when I decided to buy the reseller account since I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into and I had to learn all this by myself too.

      However if somebody had explained me all this BEFORE I actually bought my first hosting account, I would have opted for the reseller account as well without blinking.

      Something that people need to understand, is that these links to hostgator are affiliate links. Meaning that I make a small one-time commission if somebody decides to buy through them.

      I do NOT make any more money if the buyer decides to buy 6-months, one year, or two years or if the person decides to go with reseller hosting, I still make the same small one-time commission.

      I am saying this because people are now so used to think that we are just hungry for money and we’ll do whatever is needed in order to make an extra cent from them but that’s far from the truth.

      I expose things like they are here and I’m doing this for their own benefit only, I think I actually should put this text somewhere on the about me page… lol

      Anyway, thanks for chiming in Patrick, I’ll get back to you really soon for the favicon help.

      Take care! ;-)

    2. I agree with you. I haven’t known much about their reseller program until Sergio revealed and talked in more details. I want to have more control on my hosting too, so I’ll switch to reseller account soon.

  2. Thanks Sergio,
    I think the reseller will solve a lot of problems for me! I have this problem with some of my sites
    (all hosted on a shared add on hosting account) and you are right….it spreads!
    Some of them have a problem with pictures and videos….
    maybe this whiz I know can figure it out!

    1. Hey Carolyn,

      The reseller account certainly gets rid of a lot of mess done on any given website as each site is encapsulated in its own cPanel account so it doesn’t messes the rest.

      Hope your problem can get sorted out soon, take care! ;-)

      1. Hi Sergio,

        Took me awhile, have it in place…

        Ended up with a great buy from that “Black Friday”
        coupon you referred me to.

        Thanks..

        by the way, that offer for SendReach is still live. Think it is number of accounts and not by date. I listened wrong..

  3. Great overview about Hosting reseller account. You explained the benefits better then the Hostgator did on their reseller page ;).

    Btw. – Glad to see you finally started building email list.

  4. Hey Sergio,

    Great advice. I would definitively go for a reseller account if I would help clients with hosting.

  5. Hi Sergio

    I’ve had a reseller account for several years now, and it is so easy to get new websites up and running within 24 hours of buying the domain. Being able to just adjust the bandwidth and space of accounts is also a cool growing feature.

    Lastly I’ve just got that first offline client and part of the sale was done by me just putting their domain onto my reseller account as all they had was the domain. This effectively costs me nothing but had made me look like a superstar.

    When’s all this newbie tech stuff going to become a product?

    1. Hey Andrew,

      That’s great man, congratulations! You could even set them up with an e-mail address with their own domain name and be even more of a superstar for them.

      Just don’t do anything until you actually work out a project that works for both of you.

      As for your question of creating a product out of all this newbie tech stuff, I am getting ready for that.

      I just need a bit of professional feedback on a few points and I’ll get to it starting tomorrow. (I have an important consultation call tomorrow and I expect to get my doubts addressed there)

      Thanks for stopping by and chiming in Andrew, take care and have a great start of week! ;-)

  6. Really like the great advice in this post Sergio. You reassured me that I hadn’t made a mistake when I opened a reseller account with hostagor a few months back.

    At that time I was building a lot of websites and opted for the reseller because I could offer cpanels to clients releated to an hobby niche.

    Great informative video too (as usual)

    Thanks again for the great tips you keep coming up with.

    1. Hey Stephen, reseller accounts are super helpful and if you’re creative there are a ton of different ways in which you can take advantage of them with your clients.

      Thanks for watching and I look forward to work with you or your continued feedback on my blog very soon! ;-)

  7. Sergio, thanks for the helpful advise on the benefots of Reseller Account. I am new here but have purchased a Reseller Account this week. What could you advise for me to start with. I am thinking of hosting sites on my Reseller Accounts but what else can I do and not do before I start using my account?

    1. Hey Brown, glad to help!

      And basically what you have to decide is, what do you want to do with your reseller account?

      There’s a ton of things you can do (aside from what I already mentioned on this article) but you can flip websites you create yourself and offer to host them for free for the first month and then charge a recurring fee, you can rent sites you create yourself, offer the hosting to friends of yours or even local shops that have small sites.

      You can do a TON of things with a reseller account but I guess in the end it’s all up to you and what your ideas are on how to monetize your account and on what you’ll end up using it for.

      Hope you get a ton out of it and thanks for stopping by and commenting!
