Exclamation

Was wondering what could be other appropriate words for "RESELLER" that a web hosting company may desire to use on its website instead of the word "RESELLER" itself?

Yes... I personally feel there is nothing wrong with the word "RESELLER" really... but just wish to start a little brainstorming session for some better choices.

How about one of these: vendor, provider, peddler, agent, dealer, merchandizer, merchant, broker, representative, envoy, distributor, trafficker, touter, monger, purveyor, supplier, carrier, or of course, Value Added Reseller?

How suprising is that? There can't be too many possible names with "host" in them left!

This is off-topic, but something I've been thinking about: consider the uninitiated business owner thinking that he or she needs a website. Does the word "host" even occur to that person? Or is it more "I need a place to put my website?" "How do I find a web server?" "Gotta find one of those internet companies to do my web site..."

Yet it seems like 90% of "hosting companies" have the word "host" in their name.

By the way, Carol, there are some funny choices there! I'm changing my site; No more "resellers welcome," I'm now saying "traffickers welcome!" And I've just registered "sitemongers.com!"

Hi DynastyHost,

No, I wasn't trying to book any domain name

Actually I am writing the text for a client's website. While doing so yesterday, I was just wondering what other good appropriate choices could perhaps be used.

SiteMonger?????!!!!!!!??????

You guys may give me a heart-attack one day!!!!!!!

Thanks, JayC. "Traffickers welcome!" - now that's funny.

Yes, Mike, I got a little help from Roget's. I had more "reseller" alternatives, but I was merciful. However, since this thread is generating such brilliance as sitemongers.com and mongerhost.com, I'm going to go ahead and post the rest (but don't worry; this'll be it!):

Consociate, trader, champion, deputy, retailer, proxy, alter ego, chapman, front, mouthpiece, middleman, surrogate, delegate, underagent, pusher, sidekick, and in some cases - although I hope this one doesn’t apply to anyone here - accomplice.

I understand the difficulty in coming up with an appropriate word for "RESELLER". I also peeked itno my thesaurus before I posted here... but wasn't satisfied with the strange sounding synonyms

That is why I decided to ask here in the forum for some good alternatives... which hasn't been posted till now

The best was VAR till now... because it wouldn't mean much to an average client. With hefty announcements as much as 50% off to resellers, I just wish to take precautions... if necessary.

Using the direct word RESELLER does have its inherent advantages too. Am having a hard time deciding on this issue. Seems like I will settle for RESELLER after all ie. leave the word unchanged... until I get a really meaningful alternative.

Let's continue the brainstorming, shall we... no more peeking into thesauruses please

I actually do not think reseller is a bad word for someone who wants to be one. It is direct and exactly explains the relationship between the parent company and the person.

But coming up with a term that a reseller can use to describe themselves to a potential or existing client I think is key ....

later
