ResellerKey is a significant U.K. hosting solutions provider. True to its name, it focuses on offering the tools you need to start your own hosting business as a reseller of its services.

Overview

ResellerKey

While one of ResellerKey’s “about us” pages (there are two) tells us that this brand is part of HostGai.com (which is “miles above the rest as an exceptional web hosting company”), its website footer reads, “VVRS CORPORATE UK LTD.” Either way, we can conclude that this brand is one small cog within a bigger hosting machine.

This provider focuses on cPanel and WHM reseller hosting, which lets you become a virtual web host that “white labels” ResellerKey’s underlying hosting and domain services.

ResellerKey’s website supports English.

Features and Ease of Use

ResellerKey offers 15 single-domain, multi-domain, and SSD shared hosting packages, 10 cloud SSD VPS packages, 8 reseller hosting packages, and 16 dedicated server packages. All the packages (except the country-specific dedicated server ones) are available for both Linux and Windows. The single-domain Linux hosting packages provide:

  • 5 GB to unlimited disk space
  • 10 GB to unlimited bandwidth
  • PHP + MySQL
  • Five subdomains
  • Apache
  • Perl
  • POP3/SMTP/IMAP
  • Webmail

The popular cPanel control panel includes the Softaculous one-click installer to install more than 400 CMS and other apps. As an alternative to a CMS-backed website, the provided website builder means a web presence can be built from readymade templates without specialist technical knowledge.

While ResellerKey’s VPS and dedicated server product pages allude to a 99.95% uptime SLA, its “acceptable use policy” states that there is no uptime guarantee. This is something you could clarify before making a commitment.

Pricing and Support

ResellerKey’s single-domain hosting packages are very cheap, and there are discounts of 33.5% to 90% at the time of writing this review. USD-denominated plans can be purchased on billing cycles from monthly to biennial via Visa, MasterCard, or bank transfer.

You can contact this host via telephone, email, or an online contact form. Although the website advertises 24/7 technical support, I have to say that my queries went unanswered. However, for self-support, there is a knowledge base:
