The Planet, the global leader in IT hosting, today announced sweeping enhancements to its Partner Plus Program for resellers. Extending its leadership position as a preferred Web hosting platform, the company now offers registered reseller partners volume discounts up to 20%, depending on their monthly order value. Additionally, the company has created new server bundles optimized for resellers, including key software and upgrade options, at reduced prices.
Registered resellers who bill up to $2,500 per month receive 10% discounts on new orders, while those who bill more than $2,500 and up to $5,000 receive 20% discounts. Resellers who bill more than $5,000 are eligible for special bids.
The company has also assembled high-value bundles specifically designed to meet the needs of Web hosting resellers. Bundles are built on high-quality Dell servers loaded with either the Intel Xeon 3450 or the Dual Xeon 5520. Included on each server are RAID, cPanel control panels, KVM-over-IP, and 5TB of bandwidth, along with increased RAM and hard drive capacity. Bundles are offered at up to 38% off list pricing, with additional discounts provided for registered resellers.
“Reseller partners are core to our business, and our goal is to help them succeed by offering the most competitive prices, comprehensive tools and support in the hosting industry,” said Tom Blair, The Planet’s Vice President of Global Sales. “With new bulk-order discounts and server bundles expressly optimized for the reseller community, partners will have even more reasons to build their businesses with The Planet.”
“We’ve experienced explosive growth for several years, supported by The Planet’s infrastructure,” said Remi Delon with shared-hosting specialist WebFaction (http://www.webfaction.com). “We’ve built our reputation on performance and availability, which The Planet has helped us provide. Now, with new aggressive pricing in their London data center, we’re planning to add a presence here, which our customers in the United Kingdom and Europe will appreciate.”
