What Is Included With White Label Specifically

  • 1 free domain name registration for the first year *
  • cPanel access to manage your domain and emails, with the equivalent of Shared Basic Hosting.  (please review Shared Hosting Overview for more information)
  • WHMCS license key to help you manage your web hosting billing & automation
  • Discounts off products depending on the amount sold

Free Domain is for any domain that Hostwinds supports and has a cost of registration that is $25.00/yr or less (regardless of billing cycle)

How Does It Work?

Step One: Your clients will visit your site and purchase hosting at the price you set

Step Two: A matching order will then be placed with Hostwinds at standard service pricing

Step Three: You will pay Hostwinds for the order minus the discount as shown in the image below

Step Four: You then simply keep the difference as profit

For example, if you sell 22 products, you will receive a 15% discount on all products purchased through your Hostwinds White Label Reseller account on the next invoice. If you set your resold Basic Shared Hosting to a price of 5% above Hostwinds cost per month and the client purchases a year’s worth of Basic Shared Hosting, they will pay the base price plus an additional 5%. An order is then placed with Hostwinds through you, and you pay Hostwinds 15% off base price and you keep the remaining as profit including your markup

Is There A Limit To How Many Products I Can Resell Through White Label?

No, you can resell as many products as you like through White Label Reseller.

What’s The Difference Between White Label and Standard Reseller?

White Label is more complex, powerful, and flexible. Standard Reseller works similarly to bulk-purchasing Basic Shared accounts and distributing them to your clients under the Hostwinds name. White Label is a full product range to be created and sold under your own name instead. White Label Reseller servers are also not branded by Hostwinds with server names or logos.
