It’s been a busy year for iWeb, that’s for sure. In fact, within just the last few weeks the company has celebrated a milestone anniversary, activated Smart Server number 3,000, and launched a new website. Late last week (December 15, 2011) they added the icing on the cake with the announcement of their brand-new and improved reseller program. The program is aimed at providing an affordable and profitable product that will be attractive to web hosting resellers.
Those who sign up will be able to offer their own customers use of iWeb’s dedicated servers as well as shared hosting, VPS plans, fully-managed hosting plans, and virtualization. This gives resellers the opportunity to operate a full-fledged web hosting business without having to own their own servers or infrastructure. iWeb is specifically promoting the program as a partnership between themselves and their clients rather than just a business transaction.
To that end, iWeb partner relationship manager Curtis Phillips remarked, “Our approach is crystal clear. We are entering into a partnership with web hosters as peers and partners, not just clients. We are making a promise to help them gain an advantage over their competition by uniting with us.”
New partners will be able to join the program and enjoy no set-up fees, flexible billing options, and special offers like discounted pricing. Each partner will be assigned a dedicated account manager whose job will be to ensure all points of their service and support remain up to par. One of the ways account managers will achieve company goals is by developing strong relationships with each partner in order to better understand them and their businesses.
