Customer Testimonials

Simply Excellent

I am delighted with the service I have received from the obviously passionate hosting professionals at Pickaweb. They have provided a solid and reliable reseller service experience on their fast UK servers and quick customer support. Including all of the usual WHM CPanel functionality, I received many informational freebies to help me make a success of my business and they also have a really good Blog containing sound marketing and hosting advice. I am happy to recommend Pickaweb if you are looking for Shared, (or as in my case), great value professional reliable, fast, scalable UK Reseller Hosting.

Leslie Fletcher

Brilliant Service

I had never heard of before but after searching for ages for a reseller I found these guys, I contacted live chat before ordering and after the chat I just had to order my reseller, there support is amazing and they always help instantly and are very polite, there prices are good and can't be refused, if you are looking for an amazing host with amazing support I would recommend that you choose

Craig Mullan

Top quality hosting provider with great support

I have been a web developer for 18 years and this is the best hosting company for reliability and support. 10/10!

Guy Houghton

Excellent Service

I have been with Pickaweb for around a year and have a reseller package which is used for my own and some of my customers website / email hosting. During this time I have had to contact Pickaweb a few times for technical questions or general queries, on every occasion the issue has been quickly and easily resolved by using their live chat facility.

It is great that the support is based in the UK and available long after other larger webhosting companies have shut up for the night. Unlike these other companies there is no language barrier or problems trying to get the support rep to understand the query.

I have been with many of the big hosts, you might save a few pounds, but the service is no where near as good as Pickaweb.

Martin Slade

Excellent service great technical support

I am fairly green with reseller and hosting accounts but have found pickaweb services to be excellent. Easy to set up and setup my clients accounts, Technical support is very helpful and prompt especially on live chat which find most useful. I would recommend Pickaweb without hesitation.

Sam F.

Brilliant reseller Service

Have been with Pickaweb for several years I have a reseller account with them and manage over 50 domain names their support has always been excellent and problems I can count one hand over 5 years and all fixed very fast (mostly because of my errors anyway) will be with them for many years to come.

Jeffrey Rhodes

First Class Support

Having used several internet service providers to host my clients websites I can certainly say that Pickaweb offer the best support. The online chat system gives instant results rather than having to wait hours or even days for an answer and this really helps me provide a better service to my clients. Keep up the good work Pickaweb!

Chris Jewell

Noting is too much for these guys

Excellent service they offer. I know they don't advertise it but they offer more then just hosting they offer IT support in my opinion. I had problems uploading files and within minutes they sorted it for me. Much better then the big companies and invaluable if you're a small business or novice because of the support. highly recommended.


Amazing service and support

I have moved my reseller account over to Pickaweb from another host who I have partnered with for 5 years.
As anyone knows, choosing a new host is daunting, but the guys put my mind at rest answering all my concerns before my move. They migrated all my data within a few hours and the transition was seamless.
Although it is very early days, I have to say the guys have been amazing in helping get myself and my clients over.
I have been a little demanding in getting things tweaked the way I like and they have come back every time to help get things just right.
I've also been very impressed with the server speed in comparison to my old hosts, I'm not talking about running test comparisons and saving milliseconds, I am talking about an obvious noticeable speed improvement when loading pages.
Thanks guys. Much appreciated.


Best Host I've Found

Reliable Servers - Great customer service and online chat for any issues encountered.

Reseller Hosting FAQs

A reseller hosting is a type of web hosting where you are provided with space and bandwidth on a server which you can then resell to your customers.

Reseller hosting is aimed at end users who wish to purchase a bulk amount of disk space which they either intend to “resell” on to their customers or in cases where they need to host multiple websites with different control panel access to each.
This is ideal for web designers, web developers or other web professionals who have their own clients they wish to charge for value added hosting. In these cases they get access to a master control panel where they can add, remove and edit their customer’s accounts.

When you order a Reseller Hosting you don’t need to worry about getting any cPanel licences or anything like that, it’s all included.

With a Reseller plan you get a bulk amount of diskspace and bandwidth which you can resell onto your clients as you wish.

When you sign up you will receive a welcome email which contains a link to your main Reseller Administration area. This is a tool called WHM and it looks different to cPanel but it is all part of the same family of software.

Yes. The email will also contain details of the Nameservers for your hosting. If you would like to setup Custom Nameservers then you will need to purchase a domain name specifically for this purpose and two IP addresses to use as your nameservers.

Once you are logged in to your WHM account the first thing we recommend that you do is to create different hosting packages for your clients. For example you could create Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Each plan would have a set of features and an amount of resource allocated to them.

For example you could create the following plans:

Feature/Plan Bronze Silver Gold
Disk Space 100 MB 500MB 1GB
Email Accounts 1 20 50
Monthly Bandwidth 1GB 10GB 100GB
MySQL Databases 0 2 10
Addon Domains 0 5 20

Once you have created your Packages you can then start to create the individual plans for each of your clients.

To do this you just need to navigate to the Create a New Account section and it is easy to set up new accounts.

With a Reseller Plan you are allocated a bulk amount of disk space and bandwidth. However, we allow overselling which means that you can create plans which allow more space to be sold in total than you have available.

To illustrate this let’s use the following example:

You have a Reseller account with 50GB space allocated to you. You want to set up accounts offering 10GB space. Therefore you can set up 10 accounts and in theory you have ‘oversold’ your total amount. That means that if your 10 clients all use up their space then that would require 100GB (i.e. 10 clients x 10GB each = 100GB in total).

However, as long as you are within the 50GB limits of what is actually used there is no issue and you can continue selling the 10GB plans. The limit of 50GB only matters if your clients’ actual diskspace use hits or exceeds 50GB. In that case you would need to upgrade your Reseller account or consider a more robust solution such as a VPS or Dedicated Server.

You can host as many accounts as you like as long as you are within the limits of your plan in terms of disk space and bandwidth.

In cases where clients don’t pay you or in instances where you need to temporarily suspend their account (e.g. in cases where their account has been compromised or is sending SPAM) then you can suspend their account in WHM.

When the client goes to their domain they will see a Hosting Suspended page which you can customise with your own page or message to redirect your clients to your payment area or provide them with the necessary contact details.

You can also terminate hosting accounts in WHM when a client needs to cancel their hosting.

You are responsible for providing first line support for your clients. However, we are here to support you 24 x7 so that you can assist your clients. If there is anything that you can not resolve or if you are unsure we are here to help. There is not much that you will encounter that our team can not find a solution to.

Yes. We use r1soft/Idera to backup our servers on a regular basis. These backups are used for our purposes in the unlikely event of hardware failure. We also offer a value added reseller backup service where you can allow your clients to manage their own backups.

Often people outgrow their Reseller Plan as their business grows. This could be because they want to offer more power to their clients or because they want to run a particular configuration that they can’t with a Reseller account (e.g. run a non standard software or use features like SSH).

In these cases a Virtual Private Server (VPS) offers a very flexible upgrade option for you. With a VPS you get your own virtual server with guaranteed CPU and RAM and allocated disk space and bandwidth.

The beauty of a VPS is that it is extremely costs effective and scalable so you can add CPU processing power and RAM to ensure that your client’s hosting is really fast.

VPS are also extremely resilient because data is written across several hard drives on several physical machines so the possibility of data loss due to hardware failure is dramatically reduced.

Yes. We can migrate your client’s accounts as long as they are hosted on a cPanel server. If you want to migrate an entire Reseller account then this can be done but as long as it is from a cPanel server and depending on the number of accounts and the amount of disk space involved.

In cases where we are migrating Resellers these may need to be done individually by account.

In any cases of migration we require that the client makes the Nameserver changes themselves once we have confirmed that the migration is complete.

Currently we offer an attractive discount for our Resellers so that you have an extra revenue stream for your business.

Our reseller platform is very easy to use.

You get a reseller control panel called WHM where you can manage all aspects of your customers hosting plans, branding etc.

We offer video tutorials that explain the whole process in detail.

Yes. We use high end Dell servers with RAID10, Dual Processors, SAS HDDs, Dual NICs, Dual Power Supplies. The servers are located in state of the art datacentre in London with onsite 24x7 support.

The facility offers complete redundancy in protected power, HVAC, fire suppression, network connectivity and on-site manned security.

Many resellers soon reach the point where they want the power & flexibility that a Cloud VPS, an SSD VPS or a Dedicated Server can offer them. We have a range of options for you & you can upgrade at any time & we can even migrate the data for you.

cPanel is the hosting control panel that your end users will use in order to manage all aspects of their hosting account. WHM is the admin control panel for the backend of cPanel where resellers will create and manage hosting packages that they will resell to their customers.

WHMCS is a popular billing tool specific to the web hosting industry. It allows you to automate the whole web hosting provisioning. It will create invoices, automatically process your hosting orders and much more.

White label hosting gives you the ability to resell another hosting company's web space under your own brand without having to make a large investment in expensive servers or infrastructure.

A white label reseller plan is ideal for web designers, web developers, accountants, company formation and business solutions because it is cheap, easy to use and quick to get started reselling under your own branding.

If you offer other types of services to your existing customers then reselling hosting is a great way to make money on an ongoing basis.

You create your own packages with the features you want to offer them like disk space, bandwidth, email addresses etc.

You bill your customers on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. You decide the billing cycle.

You can use the billing tool WHMCS to automate the hosting provisioning and billing.

The advantage of a Reseller Plan is that you have the potential to make more money. This is because you can set your own pricing & bill your customers monthly, quarterly and annually on an ongoing basis.

However you need to provide them with first line support if they need any help. We are there in the background to support you though if you get stuck.

With the affiliate programme you just get paid a commission for any customers you refer to us. They would pay Pickaweb directly and we would support them.

The advantage here is that you just refer people onto Pickaweb and get a referral and you don't need to support them.

However, you might not earn as much as if you were billing them directly yourself so you just need to decide which is the best option for you.

If you are a web designer or developer you probably often find yourself recommending a hosting company. You may be wondering how you could resell hosting to your customers for extra ongoing recurring revenue.

Hosting is a super profitable and fast growing business.

The good news is that done well reselling hosting is a powerful way to generate extra ongoing income.

The advantages of getting a Reseller Plan are:

You get an admin control panel called WHM/Cpanel where you can setup your own hosting plans with the features that you require

You can manage all your clients via WHM.

  • You can offer your customers get their own control panel so that they can manage the basic aspects of their hosting themselves and have much more control. (They can setup email address, forwarders, autoresponders and much more.)
  • You also get support by the hosting company should you have any issues with your customer´s accounts.

How To Automate The Process

You should get a professional reseller software. Anything that is automated stands better changes of being successful.

We recommend WHMCS. It is a fantastic billing tool aimed at hosting professionals and web designers.

You can connect the application to your reseller plan so that when there is an order and the payment has been made the order will be process automatically, the customer will receive a welcome email with their hosting details & invoice. There is also a customer control panel feature so that they can see what plans they have with you, view past invoices etc.

We offer a free WHMCS licence with some of our plans.

There are other alternative reseller hosting applications you can use such as Hostbill, Clientexec etc.

The advantage of reseller hosting is that it offers a low cost to enter the hosting market for web professionals. There is a little more complexity than with shared because of the extra administrative features, but with a fairly small learning curve reseller hosting can be a great way to add additional recurring revenue.
The downside is that the reseller needs to provide the first line of support to their clients and this extra overhead should always be taken into account.

White Label: Offer hosting to your clients under your own brand.

Create your own packages: with the features your clients need.

cPanel Control Panel: Your customers can manage the main aspects of their hosting using the cPanel control panel

WHM: You get an administrator control panel that is easy to use. You can create your own packages and manage your customers.

100´s of preinstalled apps: Every hosting account you create comes with softaculous which enables you to install tons of applications in just a click. For example: WordPress, PrestaShop, Drupal etc.

Well in a nutshell if you’ve got customers that need hosting you can purchase a bulk amount of hosting space and then resell it on to them at a healthy profit.

It’s a great way to build an additional recurring revenue stream for your business.

But what’s really great is that you have zero upfront cost to invest in expensive infrastructure like servers or software licenses.

Maybe you’re a web designer, a developer or other web professional and you already have some clients.

Or maybe you’re a tech graduate and you’re looking to get into an industry experiencing exponential growth with huge potential.

Or perhaps you’ve decided to make the break from the 9 to 5 and set up on your own to prove to yourself that you can build that business you’ve always dreamed of.

Whatever your situation, if you’re thinking of setting up a web hosting business or add hosting services as a value added part of your business then read on.

We’re going to explain just about everything you’ll need to know to set up your new hosting business.

And if you were thinking massive up front costs, loads of complex systems and long term commitments to expensive contracts then relax. Setting up a web hosting business doesn’t need to be a difficult or expensive process.

Why Consider Reseller Hosting

If you’re a web designer or a developer who already has clients in their business then you may be looking for additional revenue streams and upsell options.

Your clients trust you to be their internet expert and often they will ask you for recommended services, especially regarding hosting.

In these instances you could always refer them to the shared hosting offered by your current hosting company or you could decide to offer them these services yourself.

The beauty of this is that over time you will start to generate an attractive recurring revenue stream for your business.

At this stage you might be thinking that this means getting hardware and configuring it and storing it safely and getting a high speed internet connection to your office, but there is a much better approach which is to start with a Reseller option.

Reseller Hosting vs Shared Hosting

As we saw above, shared hosting hits a limit once you start to think about offering services to your clients.

If you want to start earning that all important recurring revenue then a Reseller Hosting account would definitely be the better option and here’s why…

First of all as we have seen previously, it is important that your clients can self-manage as much as possible. That means that they should have their own control panel with their own username and password and when they login they only see their domains and email accounts and nobody else’s.

The result is higher client satisfaction because they can manage things themselves immediately and they have a better relationship with you because they are not waiting for you to get back to them.

For you it means that you have less administration, more free time and a better relationship with your clients.

The way it works is that with a Reseller account you get a bulk amount of disk space and bandwidth which you can then resell on to your clients.

You can create your own plans (e.g. bronze, silver, gold – OK not very original but it’s just for illustration purposes) where you allocate the resources accordingly. Here are the types of things you can restrict to offer a range of upgrade options:

  • Diskspace
  • Bandwidth
  • Email accounts
  • FTP accounts
  • Addon Domains
  • Parked Domains
  • Email Lists
  • Databases

If you have a client that has a basic website that doesn’t need a database then you could create a basic plan without that feature and charge them accordingly.

But for a client who needs an eCommerce website which requires a database then you could put them on a plan with more features. Of course, there is a premium for these extra features.

That isn’t going to cost you a penny/cent extra, but you have created a clear upgrade option for your client which results in extra revenue for you.

The other thing to consider is that a Reseller Plan is completely White Label so you appear as the hosting company and there is no mention of Pickaweb. For example, you can brand your reseller holding pages so that new clients will see your details showing when they got their URL before their website is published.

The Financial Benefits of Reseller Hosting

OK, you think – that all sounds logical.

But what about the costs? Surely having a bulk amount of space is going to be a lot more expensive isn’t it? Isn’t it better to just buy a shared hosting account each time I get a new client so I don’t have to pay up front?

Quite the contrary. In fact our Reseller Plans are very cost effective. To demonstrate the financial advantages to you, let’s take 2 examples.

Let’s say that you have 10 clients who need hosting throughout the year. You have 2 options:

Order 10 shared hosting accounts from Pickaweb as you need them and add a 25% markup on each

Order 1 Reseller account and charge the same as Pickaweb’s shared hosting plans

We will assume that you are ordering annual Starter Plan hosting (option 1) or an annual Reseller Plan (option 2).

With option 1 the cost would be 10 x £55 = £550 + VAT per year. With your 25% mark up the revenue would be 10 x £68.75 = £687.50 per year.

So option 1 gives you an annual profit of £137.50 (i.e. £687.50 less the hosting costs of £550).

Now let’s take option 2. You have annual revenue of 10 x £55 = £550 and annual costs of £99. This leaves an annual profit of £451.

That is 328% more profit!

But it gets better because that isn’t a like for like comparison.

What happens when you apply the same price to your clients in option 2 as you do in option 1 (i.e. £68.75 per year). Now your revenue is £687.50 but your costs remain at £99 per year. Your annual profit is £588.50. That’s nearly a 600% return on your investment and a 400% improvement over option 1!

Getting Started as a Hosting Reseller

One of the great things about Reseller Hosting is that it’s so easy to get started. The first thing you’ll need to do is to choose the right Reseller Plan for you.

If you’re just starting out then just get the Entry Reseller plan. You can upgrade whenever you need to – it’s just a couple of clicks and it all happens instantly and automatically.

Once your account is activated you’ll be sent a welcome email with all of the information you’ll need like username and password and a link to your main Reseller Control Panel.

The Reseller Control Panel is called WHM and it is the top level administrative control panel for cPanel.

Once you have these details you’ll need to login to WHM and start to set the Features and the create the Packages that you want your clients to have. We have prepared a WHM/cPanel Setup Tutorial to take you through each step.

All you are doing here is creating the packages (gold, silver, bronze) that your clients will use.

You’ll see as you get used to WHM that this will actually save you a ton of time when you set up accounts because all of the permissions, features and limits are all predefined and you don’t have to waste your valuable time keying in the settings each time you create an account. YOu can always come back and edit your packages or create new ones at any time.

Once you’ve created your plans you’re ready to start adding new clients. Again, this is super easy and is just a question of adding the basic information, i.e.

  • Domain – The client’s domain name
  • Username – Assign a unique username
  • Password – Create a unique password (and make a note of it)
  • Email – Enter the client’s email address
  • Then you just need to assign the correct package and you’re up and running.

Responsibilities of a Reseller

As a Reseller your main responsibilities are to offer 1st line support for your clients. This means that you need to resolve any day to day issues or answer any ‘how to’ type questions.

Of course we are here in the background to support you if there are any issues. Our technical team is here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to support you, but you will need to offer the first line of support.

The reason for this is so that your clients do not see Pickaweb. They deal with you directly and that adds value to your relationship with your client. In order to make this as easy as possible we would recommend some basic tools.

Our team is very experienced though and they can handle pretty much anything you can throw at them. If you get stuck, just click on the Live Chat button on our website and they are there to help you.

How to Automate Your Reseller Hosting

At the beginning you may feel that you do not have any need for automation. However, the more clients you get onboard the more important it is to keep accurate records as well as automating various tasks like setting up new accounts.

Automation is not something you need to consider immediately but as you grow you may find that you are spending more and more time on administration and less time on building relationships with new and existing clients.

Here are the main advantages of Reseller Hosting Automation:

  • Efficiency – no more time spent on repetitive tasks
  • Instant Deployment – New hosting accounts activated in seconds
  • Profitable – Sell domains, SSL certificates, Backup Services, Security, Anti-Spam and much more
  • Compatibility – Integrates seamlessly with many different suppliers
  • Client Self Service – ordering, accessing invoices, upgrades, downgrades, renewals, nameserver updates
  • Automated Billing – auto generate invoices, apply payments, recurring billing
  • Automated events – auto suspend non-paying accounts, termination, cancellation
  • Security – anti fraud automation
  • Consistency and Accuracy – Welcome emails, predictable and consistent business processes
  • 100% White Label – Impress your clients with your professional, automated billing and hosting provision system
  • Reporting – important business statistics and reports
  • Scalability – handle thousands of customers with ease
  • Customer Service – quickly identify client accounts and view entire billing history

The best tool to automate your hosting business is WHMCS. This is a purpose built hosting automation and billing platform. It is aimed squarely at resellers and small to medium sized hosts so there is plenty of headroom to grow. You can start off small with a reseller account and as you grow you can start to add in your VPS or even Dedicated Servers as required.

It is also low cost and is offered for free if you order a Pickaweb Reseller Plus service we even include a free WHMCS licence.

If you are a web designer looking for a hosting solution so that you can resell hosting to your customers, we would definitely recommend a reseller hosting.

The main advantages are that it offers you an opportunity to create an extra revenue stream. In addition to the initial web design you will also get all of the extra changes, updates, etc., but your hosting services will give you a steady stream of monthly or annual recurring revenues.

With a reseller hosting plan you will get allocated a bulk amount of disk space & bandwidth on one of our servers for you to allocate amongst your customers and resell with no mention of Pickaweb. It is totally white label.

It is easy to use and whilst you need to offer first-line support to your customers we will take care of the server and if you have any issues that you can’t solve then our team are on hand to help you around the clock.

You can think of it like becoming your own hosting company where you can create your own plans (eg: gold, silver, bronze) and charge your customers accordingly.

The real advantage to you is that each of your customers is given their own unique access.

This way they can manage their email accounts, reset passwords, etc. without the need to trouble you because they have instant access to their hosting control panel.

Another great thing that will be useful to you if you plan to offer hosting to your clients is that you can make use of a process called overselling.

This means that you can add as many customers you like & as long as they are not using up all of the resources (disk space and bandwidth) that is assigned to you then you will be fine. If you do find that you need additional space then you can upgrade to the next reseller hosting plan or even go for a Virtual Private Server (VPS).
