20i Reseller Hosting in the USA

Is 20i the best reseller hosting in the USA?

Tl;Dr: Yes.

One of our key aims at 20i is to provide the absolute best reseller hosting available. Platform, support, features, software…we ‘re always looking at how we can continue to give our customers the best reseller hosting experience possible.

I decided to have a look at the US based reseller hosts who are regularly listed in the “top x reseller hosting” articles, and compare them to our reseller hosting.

A sea of cPanel

The US hosting market is almost totally reliant on cPanel/WHM for their hosting control panels. This inherently restricts the type of hosting they can offer to single server hosting, including resellers and their customers.

It also limits the number of packages resellers can sell/host. With specific web space/storage allowances, it’s impossible to offer unlimited sites as a feature (even though some advertise it).

StackCP® is our custom-made hosting control panel to give your customers as much (or as little) control of their domains, hosting, databases and email as you want. Plus, because we’re not restricted by cPanel, we can offer you more features and better performance at no extra cost.

Basic WHMCS plans

A free version of WHMCS is the standard fall back for most reseller hosts. But that limits the number of customers you can have, and has WHMCS branding on it. The goal here is to upsell you and charge you more as you grow.

Our web hosting automation software HostShop®, is free, unlimited and totally white label. Find out why it is time to look for other automation options and why 20i offers the best WHMCS alternative.

Autoscaling cloud hosting

In the comparison chart above, I’ve used the term ‘true cloud hosting’. By this I mean hosting that is not tied to one server and scales automatically depending on demand.

If there’s a surge in traffic, your website will continue to offer the same fast experience for every user. Additionally, if there’s a spike in demand and your shared hosting ‘neighbors’ become busy, it doesn’t affect your site speed.

With cPanel hosts, if you share a server with a busy site, it will affect your site too.

Find out more about our autoscaling cloud hosting.

All in on Linux hosting

US reseller hosts are also totally focused on traditional Linux hosting. WordPress is available as a one-click installation script, but there’s not much more to it than that. That’s just web hosting, hence the crosses on the ‘WordPress hosting’ row.

Our WordPress hosting platform was built just for WordPress sites with proprietary PHP optimization, staging, speed optimization, backups, cache, security and more all built in, no plugins required. We also offer unlimited Windows hosting as well.

Not all free CDN are equal

I also refer to ‘fully featured CDN’. Many hosts now offer a free CDN as a feature, but most are using a cut down/free version from CloudFlare.

Our purpose built 20iCDN comes with everything you’d expect from a paid product, and it’s free for both you and your customers to use.

Migration headaches

A surprising number of hosts still use a manual process to migrate customers to their platform, and some even charge you for the privilege.

All our migrations are free, unlimited and activated with just a few clicks through our Migration Center.  Additionally, we’ve built the Migration Center in to StackCP, so your customers can migrate themselves as well. That’s less work for you.

Final thoughts

There are two things that come out of this for me.

One, our reseller hosting is light years ahead of anything in the USA.

Two, if you’re one of our resellers, there’s huge potential for you to disrupt the US market. Features like autoscaling cloud hosting, My20i/StackCP, Web Optimization Suite and unlimited hosting are unavailable anywhere else.

If you’re already in the USA, go for it! If you’re in another country, simply add a second location to your Reseller account for global coverage. Provision unlimited websites from our US data center and manage them all from your single My20i account. Log in to activate.
