What are the benefits of Reseller Hosting?
Our reseller hosting in South Africa offers individuals and small businesses the opportunity to either start a small venture or expand their existing client services and/or products.
White label reseller hosting explained:
- Resellers can resell disk space to their clients with a reasonable margin using their own company branding.
- Resellers are also able to sell value added services, like SSL certificates, Hosted exchange (IceWarp), Virtual servers (VPS), Domain registrations, maintenance retainers, etc.
- It remains the responsibility of the provider to ensure that the hosting infrastructure is secure, maintained, updated and optimized.
What’s in it for me?
- Red Cactus reseller hosting in South Africa also offers a FREE billing system with automated provisioning of hosting services and domain management.
- In order to compete with the established brands in the industry we offer optional white label reseller support.
- Our comprehensive knowledge base is also aimed at providing reseller clients an easy-to-use self-help platform that is always evolving.
The above example is based on a typical Shared Reseller hosting package, charging each client R75 per month, and operating within the allocated space.
Different scenarios based on a per month cost of R75 per client to show the profit possibilites.
The above are only projections. All packages are white label, and resellers can structure them however they please.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a “white-label” billing system?
Our invoicing, billing, hosting and domains provisioning system allows for seamless automation of your client’s services and the best part is that they will only see your company details on all communication. The Billing system will also only reflect your company logo.
What about support? Do you offer support for reseller clients?
We offer paid support for Reseller clients. Resellers can then focus on growing their business, while our “white-label” support team takes care of client queries. Resellers can either choose to opt-in for our support or make use of our support credit system for ad-hoc requests, should you prefer to offer your clients support.
What are your payment options for Resellers and Clients?

We are in no way affiliated with Xneelo other than procuring space, data and power.
What some of our Resellers have to say
Over the past 6 years I’ve been with about 3 hosting companies and today I regret that I haven’t found Red Cactus before any of them. I have received more support from Ignis at Red Cactus in the 1st week than I ever did with any of the previous hosting companies. Not only is the support fantastic, but their pricing helps my company to save costs and make more profit each month. I believe I’ve finally found a reliable hi host provider that delivers exceptional service at reasonable prices. Keep up the great work Ignis! You have another loyal client that will easily recommend you above any other hosting company.

Red Cactus is simply out of this world. Seldom you’ll find excellence in all levels of a business, nowadays. Red Cactus surprised me with their overall quality of service & value for money. Staff is quick to respond and always try to help, not to mention well-qualified and friendly at that. With that type of crew they cover a vast number of services, not just quality hosting. Five stars and salutations.

I’ve simply been knocked out of the park by Red Cactus on all fronts. Excellent service and especially tech support, and the pricing is value for money all the way. Staff is always friendly, pleasant and professional, as well as going the extra mile above and beyond the call of duty. Such a breath of fresh air.

WOW!!! Now this is the best service i have experienced in a long time. I contacted Red Cactus at around 08h00 this morning asking some questions before selecting a hosting package for my 2 websites. The time now is 14h14 and the transfer of the sites are done, the server is quick and alot of thanks to Mike who was very professional and helped me on every turn with every question throughout this transition.
I want to say to the company i moved from, “You guys can take a page out of this book of Excellent Service”
I look forward to great service and a long relationship as i build my business with Ignis, Mike and the rest of the Red Cactus team.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR MAKING MY DAY

I have been using Red Cactus since 2014 and their service is always personal (I hate call centers), friendly, fast and effective.
Although they have a large (and growing) client base, I have never felt like just a number. This has been my experience for normal day-2-day business activities and in times when those IT-Gremlins comes to visit. (In the website & email hosting world you are guaranteed of one thing….no matter how much you invest in technology and no matter what precautions you take, at some stage something will break.)
Based on my experience with them in both normal business (which is 99% of the time) and crisis mode, I plan to use them for many years to come as my technology partner to grow my own business.
