I'm new to reselling. I haven't started a reselling business yet. I'm just getting myself as much information as possible before I think of starting one.
Basically, I saw one of the resellers offering something called Branded WHMCS and Unbranded. What is the significance of this? What if I choose not to go with the both of these since it's under addons?
RapidSSL is just a standard SSL certificate. Cheap and basic no frills to encrypt traffic via secure connection. Then there are more expensive EV certificates (Extended Validation) and those are not cheap.
SSL requires a Dedicated IP address. Also you want to keep separate your billing system from your client system. i.e. separate VPS or something.
I'm checking out hostmediauk.com's reselling. It's cheap that's why I'm in doubts. I've been hosting with them for like almost 1 year now with zepx.co.cc. As you can see their uptime for the whole 1 year is 99.56%, which is considered reasonable for a shared hosting that offers you 5 pounds with 1GB diskspace and 10GB bandwidth for the entire year. So far their support ticket replies within 24hours even on weekends . The bad side is not much information is provided.
I have to give Mike some props for being so helpful in this thread.
I've had people just trip out because I answer all their questions and some. I'd say 1 in 20 goes the extra mile, and with so many thousands, that sounds about right. Heck maybe more with so many 'fly by night' operations.
WHT is also the only place you will find a good mix. There is generally a balance of 50/50 (or 1 in 2) on here so you usually get what you need here from somebody.
They're probably not as cheap as you're looking for but as the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for"
Thanks for the recommendation Ross
