Bloggers’ paradise available to channel

AUSTRALIAN-based web hosting company Smartyhost is turning its eyes towards New Zealand, urging resellers to take on its domain registration and blogging packages.

While the company isn’t yet able to offer .co.nz registration — that is planned for the near future — other domain endings are available, including .com.

Anoosh Manzoori, Smartyhost managing director, says due to our geographical location many New Zealand businesses prefer to use .com.

“We have changed the way resellers can offer domain registration and web hosting packages. Smartyhost has invested heavily in a fully automated domain name system and now has the technology to offer the same service to resellers,” he says.

Manzoori promises resellers a dedicated account management team and strong margins. “The package can be branded and customised with a reseller’s own corporate identity so customers don’t need to know that Smartyhost is behind it. Equally, the architecture enables resellers to on-sell the same benefits which means they can further grow revenue through a chain of partners.”

Manzoori also points to a new blog package, Smartyblog, which is available wholesale to resellers. He says it is a world first with personally branded domain name, CMS tool, web space and technical support.

“Blog is a relatively new product for us but we’re beginning to see a wave of interest.”
