If you’re designing websites for your clients, they’re going to need hosting. Which means they’re going to be paying someone for that service – and it might as well be you.

Hosting might not be a core part of your business, but it’s actually really easy to offer it as an extra service, without having to weigh in on the technical details. By working with a managed hosting provider (more in question 4!), you can offer clients space on your server – or a whole server of their own – and wrap their hosting costs into a monthly or annual website maintenance fee.

We call it reselling and it’s an approach that makes life easier for them, and creates a regular revenue stream for you. Day to day, you can focus on creating great websites and maintaining them through a simple, straightforward dashboard. While you’re doing that, your hosting provider (us, if you like) will handle all the techy stuff and give you any support you need.

If that’s not for you, there’s also a more hands-off way to help your clients get great hosting. If you’re getting good service from your own hosting provider, just ask whether they run a referral scheme. You’ll often be able to recommend them to your clients, get a small reward for doing so, and let them handle the whole hosting package, including billing and support.
