Companies that wish to start offering hosting services for their customers will have to tackle some obstacles in order to gain success: investment in a professional infrastructure, investment in time both for support as follow up of hosting subscriptions, processing domain name registrations and so on...
To summarize: launching a hosting service from scratch is not always as easy as it sounds.
FirstServed offers a unique reseller program where you no longer have to rely on a Plesk panel to administer everything by yourself but you may ask your customers to contact us directly for support.
We take care of the complete hosting experience for your customers, including the support and even invoicing - if you wish.
As a partner of FirstServed you will gain access to the FirstServed Selfcare website.
This control panel allows you to manage the hosting accounts of your customers, from domain name administration, modifying DNS records, management of e-mail addresses, aliases, forward addresses, consulting visitor statistics, webspace statistics, data traffic (bandwidth usage) statistics, adding and managing databases...
By offering layered user accounts your customer will gain access to his/her hosting through the selfcare website. This means the user can manage his/her own e-mail addresses or consult their web statistics and no longer needs to fall back on you as an intermediary.
The selfcare website allows you and your customers to easily manage e-mail addresses, aliasses and forward addresses.
Besides that FirstServed offers an excellent webmail application allowing your customer to check e-mail wherever they are: the only necessity is an Internet connection and a web browser.
As a reseller you gain discounts on our hosting services. You may choose for an entire follow up of the order by FirstServed: we take care of the complete invoicing directly with your customer and you receive commission for every customer you introduce, at every subscription renewal.
If you would like to control invoicing yourself you will receive an invoice from us with the discount already taken into account.
Offering hosting often means less fun tasks to cope with such as wrong estimations of bandwidth usage, problems with DNS zone settings or the troublesome approach of trading and transferring domain names.
FirstServed helps you with these issues and ensures a smooth an quick delivery of your hosting order: hosting without worries!
