I know that you can get things cheaper with certain qualifiers. For example, cheaper WHMCS licenses. How might we go about asking vendors for lower costs? Any advice would be appreciated.
We have factored in the obvious costs like servers, WHMCS licenses, SSL's, etc. Is there anything we might be overlooking in deciding to offer these services?
I was kind opf hoping your company was in Costa Rica (from the name) I love it there. You can get a free WHMCS from some hosts if you pay for several months at once. I chose to buy it from them because I know it's safe there and the support is for us.
As for CPanel they have a lot of partners, I think we are on the lowest pricing cycle there and it's $9 a month for VPS and $25 for a server license. Anything less than that and the host is eating a little for your business which is pretty common.
As for App installers I use Installation and it lowers each license you add. After 30 servers it's like $3 a month. Super cheap and awesome software.
Reseller plans have many factors, for us you get three months free if you pay for 9. This brings down to like $8 a month. Pretty cheap for quality hosting with 24/7 support. I wouldn't try to do anything much cheaper and expect a good experience.
