You need to set up a website and a store. Then you’d have to put in place all the business processes and customer support systems which you’d need for any online business.
HostShop takes care of all of this out of the box: giving you the freedom to concentrate on what you enjoy. It can be customised to match your branding, and it’s modular – use all of its features or just what you need. We created it in-house, using the expertise and experience built up over 20 years in the web hosting industry.
The best alternative to WHMCS comes free with the 20i Reseller Hosting package.Buy Reseller Hosting
Just enter your hosting products, prices and payment provider details into My20i and your shop is ready to go. A customer can select and pay for hosting, domain or a VPS and begin using it immediately – all without your input. Any payments will go through a free automatic fraud-checking service.
The shop is visually identical as your customers’ control panel, StackCP, so the flow between them is seamless.
You can sell all of 20i’s products and services: hosting, VPS, domains, SSLs, database licences and more. You can also sell your own products – such as themes – through HostShop.
Products and pricing can be as simple or as complex as you’d like.
It’s just a few clicks to change prices or descriptions, and there are no limits on what you can offer. You can manage prices and taxes globally, or drill-down to change individual hosting packages. Offer discounts on any product through codes your customers can enter at payment. We include helpful ‘recommended prices’ on domains and VPS to give you a head start.
You can even charge for services that we provide for free to Resellers – like our malware scanner – meaning that you’ll be making 100% profit on every sale.
HostShop also features a set of 4 modern website templates, prefilled with white-label marketing copy and royalty-free imagery. While they give you all you need to start your business, we would recommend personalising your hosting site to suit your brand. The templates are based on the Bootstrap 4 framework, so it’s easy to make those changes.
If you have an established business, you can add the hosting store to it: it will integrate with any pre-existing site.
You can add products other than hosting to the shop too. Web design, SEO, one-off design charges, themes – all these can be added to HostShop. Your clients can then make all their payments in one simple, attractive and secure interface.
While we don’t want you to abandon the human touch, it’s easy to automate all your business processes. You can set up and manage:
Preset default automated sequences and messages are included to give you a running start. So you can start your business today. Or, if you’d prefer, you can edit and tweak all the business automation features until it’s exactly how you want to run things.
Our StackCP Help Desk software gives you all you need to deal with customer queries.
Your customers are able to send support requests via their StackCP control panel, and you can respond through the sophisticated ticketing system in My20i. You can create and customise departments, statuses and email notifications or use the presets.
You can send HTML or plain-text emails to your customers to promote your hosting business. Bulk, branded emails can be sent to selected StackCP Users; segmented based on the product they use.
You can choose an email template, modify, test, save – then send it out. The emails can include all the personalisation you’d like, with a wealth of variables to focus them on the individual.
Perhaps you have something more urgent or important to impart to your customers, such as holiday opening hours?
The StackCP Message Centre makes it simple to target all (or a select few) of your customers with a control panel message. They’ll receive it as soon as they log in.
High quality business intelligence is at the heart of a successful and sustainable business. So HostShop has a dedicated area for this, where you can view customers, revenues, products and services.
HostShop’s reports help you monitor your business performance over time. Gain insight from elegant and powerful business performance visualisations. Make the decisions that will turn your business into a web hosting success story.
All these inclusive business features are usable out of the box.
All you need to do to begin your reseller hosting startup business is set up some hosting products, choose your prices and add your payment providers’ details.
