Reseller Hosting Explained



    Red Cactus White Label Reseller Hosting gives individuals and companies the ability to re-sell Red Cactus hosting services, such as disk space and bandwidth to your potential clients under your own brand and at the price you choose.
    This allows you to launch your own web hosting company and offer the same services to your clients than we do.  You can also sign up as a reseller to supplement your web design services, by hosting your design clients’ websites and ensure that you have full control over their sites.

    As a reseller you do not require to purchase any software licensing and maintain server hardware as this is the responsibility of the provider, allowing you to focus on signing up new clients. Resellers should ideally have basic knowledge of the industry to ensure that they can answer simple questions from their clients and sell their services with confidence.

    What’s the difference, you may ask and how will it impact your clients?
    Shared hosting simply put, is when all clients on a specific server share the system resources.  This is not necessarily a deal breaker as it all depends on how the shared server is optimized.  Should you wish to utilize the system resources yourself, then a dedicated (virtual machine) is the alternative.  This also gives you flexibility and full administrative / root rights, while allowing you to manage all aspects of the server software, giving you full control over your client’s hosting environment.
