On February 24, 2009, global IT hosting leader The Planet, announced that it would be running a promotion to help its resellers increase their revenues. From the 24th of February through March 31, resellers who buy five or more servers will get discounts of up to 68% per server. Customers can then use the bulk servers to deliver upgrades to their busier clients who require dedicated server platforms. These additional severs can also serve as an extended infrastructure for resellers who want to provide value-added or shared offerings such as applications and custom services.
Urvish Vashin, dedicated hosting General Manager for The Planet, says the provider is more than happy to give its loyal customers such a tremendous account. Vashin notes that web hosting is a highly competitive market and this special promotion will give The Planet’s customers a wide variety of options with an excellent value for their money. With the bulk discount offerings, resellers have the benefit of upgrading their customers to a dedicated environment in a cost effective manner.
The recent promotion allows resellers to take of advantage of significant discounts on the purchase of five or more high performance servers. The hardware options include the Celeron 2.0+, the Dual Xeon 2.4, Dual Xeon 2.8 and Dual Xeon 3.2, the Pentium 4.2.4+ and the Xeon 5130.
Discounts on The Planet’s bulk servers are structured as follows:
The price on five to nine servers ranges from $69 to $119 a month per server
The price on 10 to 19 servers are greatly reduced, ranging from $59 to $109 a month per server.
The price on 20 or more servers is the best deal, dropping from $49 to $99 a month per server.
According to The Planet, resellers also have the option of enjoying additional savings by leveraging the provider’s Unmetered Servers promotion, a special offer that was recently announced. For a limited time, The Planet is giving away its popular unmetered bandwidth solutions for no cost on reduced priced servers. The packages are regularly priced at $200 for 10 Mbps and $1,800 for 100 Mbps of bandwidth each month. This is how the deal works – the Dual Xeon 3.2, which is regularly priced at $299, can now be purchased at the discounted price of just $144 per month and comes bundled with 10 Mbps of unmetered bandwidth. The same server with 100 Mbps of unmetered bandwidth is only $544 a month. The Planet is expecting its customers to take of advantage while these amazing offers last.
