    How to resell Windows hosting?

    I am familiar with Linux but no experience with windows. What do I need to start up with windows? I can choose some Windows packages on the forum but I could not find way(s) or how to start reselling Windows hosting
    Do I need a Windows Server OS? which hosting panels do I need to manage reseller accounts? thanks

    Hi MitziMeow

    Finding a windows reseller is a lot harder than linux, but they do exist. However I would recommend if you going to become a reseller to choose a linux plan.

    Any reason you want to resell windows hosting instead of linux ?

    I just want to have another options and I can sell to users who wanted Windows packages. There are more people still searching for windows hosting today, and it has less competitive than Linux hosting.

    windows reseller and windows hosting in general is just not as common.
    Have a look in the offers section or Google, email some providers and ask questions. I'm sure you'll be able to find a windows plan.

    While windows is not as popular as Linux when it comes to hosting, you can still find reseller plans easily by doing a google search.
    You do not need a windows OS if you are going to use a reseller plan however if you are going to use a VPS/ Dedi then you need to purchase a windows license.
    Windows is not more difficult than Linux...
    You are right it is much less comptetive and has a decent size open market however the demand for it is lower.

    I would totally agree, Windows is not even close to Linux in servers in my opinion, but Windows is not as popular as Linux as servers.

    There are plenty of really good Windows hosting/reseller providers around.

    Windows hosting is not as popular, but it is just as good as Linux.

    Developers that use asp.net need Windows hosting for their sites, so there is a market there.

    Yes. That is a good idea. you need a windows server license which you will get from your data center and you should install a control panel software like Plesk or dotnetpanel. Plesk installs almost all the tools required to run asp.net and php hosting

    Which Plesk package do I need to buy to manage my web hosting as a hosting provider? It is Web Pro or Web Host?

    The sales edge Windows gives you, if I had to guess, is support. Medium and large businesses are more than happy to outsource their support needs for faster, more reliable services. When they buy a Windows product, support is promised. When they buy a Linux product, support is a separate, generally third-party service that would probably be provided by the web host or sometimes the Linux distributor.

    Reselling windows is not so big deal .. get a licensed windows server from a reputed data center .. once you got the you can use either Plesk , Hosting controller as a PAID control panel for hosting or Website panel an open source control panel for hosting. Optimize and tune the server for the hosting purpose. and there you start.

    What you can do by getting a small Windows VPS. Install Plesk and start selling Windows hosts or you can get a reseller which going to be cheaper.
