GlowHost Announces Major Upgrades To Reseller Hosting Program


Stuart, FL (PRWEB) November 29, 2011

GlowHost, a market leader in shared hosting, dedicated hosting, cloud hosting, and reseller web hosting, announced today a selection of new upgrades to its website reseller hosting solutions. The company has introduced new tools and content including video tutorials and a website template, all of which can be branded to match the needs of hosting resellers. These new features are designed to make it easier to start generating money online quicker.

“One of our ongoing goals at GlowHost is to offer the world’s best web hosting reseller program,” says Matt Lundstrom, President at GlowHost. “We already offer instant account setup and competitive resource allocations, but if our resellers are to make money online, they need help getting their web presence, marketing, and branding together as quickly as possible. Every one of our new reseller hosting features makes the process of launching your own hosting company faster.”

In order to help users get the best results from their reseller web hosting plans, GlowHost has introduced a number of new features to help with advertising and promotion. Perhaps the most impressive of these new tools is the launch of over 1000 video tutorials, covering a range of subjects that may be useful to end-users who sign up for a hosting account with resellers. Available in 10 languages, the impact of these tutorials is two-fold – they not only reduce customer support calls by educating end-users fully, but also help to build customer confidence with professional video content. These videos can be branded with a reseller’s own name and logo, helping to ensure continuity throughout each individual reseller web hosting account. Of course, web hosting resellers need somewhere to display these videos. GlowHost has also made available a professional pre-built website template, dramatically reducing the time to market.

“By using our new reseller web hosting plan tools, our resellers have the chance to get their business online with an authoritative, trustworthy presence,” says Lundstrom. “With just a few clicks, our customers can have a cPanel reseller account ready to go and the web presence they need to start drawing visitors. But we haven’t stopped there. We have also made it easier for reseller hosting users to offer better quality of service, by combining our video tutorials with some ‘behind the scenes changes’ that make administering your hosting company more streamlined. By offering better services, our web hosting resellers attract more customers and earn more money.”

To increase the efficiency of managing a reseller hosting account, GlowHost has introduced new features providing more flexibility in terms of billing. Resellers can now choose between ClientExec or WHMCS billing software, and also receive a special merchant account with free Authorize.net gateway setup and special discounted pricing for the hosting industry. These billing-specific features are largely invisible to the end users who purchase hosting from resellers, but help to reduce the time spent on managing accounts and to provide consistently better service throughout. In addition to the new range of features announced today, GlowHost still provides branded cPanel reseller account software, a free domain reseller account, and a free branded private name server.

“Before now, we offered everything you could need to set up a web hosting company of your own,” says Lundstrom. “We provided a quality reseller web hosting service with incredible network reliability, guaranteed uptime and a price-point that leaves plenty of room for resellers to make a profit. We have always been proud of our commitment to reseller hosting, but it wasn’t enough. Today, we don’t just give reseller hosting customers the chance to set up their company – we give them what they need to set it up today.”

Since the company was first formed in 2002, GlowHost has grown to become a leading provider of web hosting services, with reseller hosting services that give customers an opportunity to sell high quality hosting to their own clients. Now, with the launch of these powerful new reseller web hosting tools, it is easier and quicker than ever to start a web hosting company of your own.

Customers who are interested in finding out more about GlowHost’s cPanel reseller hosting program are encouraged to visit glowhost.com for more details.
