The BlueHost reseller program was just released. For individuals interested in a web hosting reseller program, the BlueHost reseller program is definitely worth looking into. Because BlueHost has been a major player in the web hosting industry for many years and has already proven their reliability and dependability, this is a long release that many people have been waiting for. Before we really dig into the nitty gritty of what the BlueHost reseller program offers, let’s talk a little bit about what reseller hosting is for those that may not be familiar with what it is and how it works.
According to wikipedia.org “Reseller hosting is a form of web hosting wherein the account owner has the ability to use his/her allotted hard drive space and bandwidth to host websites on behalf of third parties.” Reseller web hosting is a way for an individual to make money online. For someone that is very familiar with web hosting and is interested in using that web hosting knowledge to make some extra money. For individuals with special talents or skills that would be valuable in the web hosting industry, such as web design, they may offer their web design service with “free web hosting” included. Because the web designer can buy a reseller plan with a certain amount of web space and bandwidth, they can then turn around and provide that service for “free” with their web design service. Naturally the cost of the reseller hosting will be covered by the profit earned through the web design service. Other’s may not provide any extra service but rather just offer the web hosting service with a set amount of disk space and bandwidth per account, selling each account at a marked-up rate.

There are a number of ways a web host can go about selling reseller hosting plans. Some have the reseller actually rent a dedicated server, others may have more than one reseller on each dedicated server and sell a set amount of disk space and bandwidth. Resellers then just sell increments of the disk space and bandwidth, for a profit. Now we will look at what the BlueHost reseller plans offer. BlueHost offers three reseller plans to choose from. The cheapest plan is the Sky Blue plan at $19.95 per month. The Blue Sky plan provides resellers with 100 GB of disk space and 15 Mbps (approx 4815 GB/mo) bandwidth.
The second option is the Electric Blue plan with 250 GB disk space and 25 Mbps bandwidth (about 8025 GB monthly bandwidth) for $49.95 per month. The third plan True Blue includes 500 GB disk space with 35 Mbps bandwidth (about 11235 GB monthly bandwidth) at $99.95 per month. Naturally, the disk space and bandwidth allocations are the main difference in each plan and that is why we covered them first. The other features included in each BlueHost reseller plan are pretty much the same and include: unlimited accounts, free domain, admin control panel, client control panel, unlimited email accounts and email features, and 24/7 US based tech support for the reseller.
