Pre-Sales Questions, Specials and Coupons / Reseller Income
« on: July 05, 2014, 01:37:20 PM »
Hello Everyone,

The reseller hosting business is growing. People consider this option because they can earn good money by starting their own web hosting business. Do you think that resellers really earn good amount of money?

This seems to be a debatable point to me.

Ecommerce Hosting & Discussion / eCommerce Multistore Solution
« on: May 15, 2014, 05:14:09 PM »
One of my friends operates an eCommerce venture and I am helping him in operations. Right now he is using WordPress and Joomla plugins for managing the shopping carts and keeping the track of inventory and orders. This really seems to be getting out of hand.

We are looking for a CMS eCommerce platform that will enable us to transfer and manage all the stores through one admin panel. We are also looking ahead to add-on more clients in the future.

I want the users to be able to edit their own CSS/HTML/website design and they should be able to upload excel (.cvs). or anything else for the large inventory files. Some of the stores have more than 100 items.


I am in a process of making a new website with one of my friends. It is a website where video streaming will be done by people and they will also download the videos if required. We are looking for good dedicated servers and the following configurations:

* Servers in powerful and fully equipped data center
* Unlimited traffic
* 10 GB upload bandwidth

Please let me know if there is a suitable and affordable dedicated server solution for this.

Thanks  :)

Offering payment options is an important aspect to be considered after setting up a web hosting business. I would like to have a feedback from people who have experience in the web hosting business. How many payment options should be provided to the customers? Is PayPal enough? Or other payment options should also be considered?

Web Hosting / Is reselling profitable?
« on: April 02, 2014, 01:08:19 PM »
I am planning to start a web hosting business by signing up for a reseller hosting package. However, I am completely new to the business and I need some advice from all the members present in this forum. Please share the tips and tricks and the profitable ways to setup a business through reseller hosting.  :)

You might have come across many companies offering free web hosting services and then you must have thought - 'Let's try them :D'. Hold that thought! Here are some possibilities of opting for a free web hosting service:

1. Downtime
2. No support
3. No domains
4. No email service
5. Not much disk space
6. Limited bandwidth
7. Pop-ups
8. Lack of interactive features
9. Loss of content/data
10. Hosting service may not be free forever

Your website deserves the best only then you will get the best out of it. I would love to know everyone's opinions on this... :)

Web Hosting / Is Geographical Location Important In Web Hosting?
« on: March 25, 2014, 03:32:51 PM »
I am comparing various web hosting companies. Some are based in USA, some in Europe while some are based in India. I am doing this for one of my friend's websites whose target audience is in Europe. I would like to know will the loading time increase if I select a hosting company based in USA? It is a general belief on the internet that you must have your hosting servers close to the location of your visitors.

It will be great if someone can provide me with some information on this.... :)

When a website that has SSL installed in it is migrated, from one web hosting company to the other; or if it is moved from one hosting server to the other, is the SSL migrated with it? Or the website owner has to purchase a new SSL certificate?
