Reseller hosting is a great opportunity for you to develop a hosting business of your own, whether you’d like to do it as a side hustle or a full-time job. Our reseller package gives you everything you would need. And there’s no need to fear working in a shared hosting environment. In theory, you can have multiple customers all using WordPress and no need to worry about bandwidth. We’ve compiled a list of considerations you can take now to help your customers optimize their WordPress sites sufficiently so that shared resources are not a problem for anyone.
This is an issue that trips up many WordPress users. It’s standard practice to use images in posts; they help illustrate the content of the post for busy readers and add color and vibrancy. But they can slow your site to a halt and abuse resources needed by others.
So what can you do as a reseller host to help this? Check out some of our education resources and share them with your customers:
- How to optimize and compress images in WordPress
- How to speed up your site with the Jetpack Image CDN feature
By encouraging your customers to read about and apply these resources, you are solving a problem and empowering your customers to improve their sites.
Sensible Plugin Strategy
WordPress, as you surely know, makes it incredibly easy to augment a basic installation. Using plugins, one can quickly augment their site with many impressive new features. These plugins can virtually extend WordPress without limitation. But they have a downside.

We recommend the following plugins for backups and security:
Both of these plugins come recommended because they’re free, they add only a small footprint to your available resources, and can be configured with ease.
