Become a Hosting Partner
There's two ways to partner-up: host your own clients or let us host them for you.
Host your own: Reseller / VPS
With a reseller hosting plan, you create customers and subscriptions for each client. Each subscription is completely isolated, and you can set whatever limits and permissions you wish on their subscriptions.
They'll have their own control panel logins they can use and you can also spin them off into their own hosting account with us very easily if you should ever wish to do so.
If your client requires support for their site or hosting, they will have to come to you.
With VPS hosting you gain additional advanced features within the Plesk panel as well as root access to your server. You also get full access to increase or lower your VPS resources whenever necessary, along with complete isolation exclusively for your hosting services, keeping them separate from other websites on the server, unlike reseller hosting.
Let us handle it: affiliate referrals
Activate your affiliate account and use your affiliate link to sign up new customers for hosting. This will earn you a recurring 15% of their hosting payments to us. Affiliate referrals is a popular way for designers to build a bit of passive income along with their portfolio of sites, without having to maintain tech support for their clients.
If your customer has any support issues with their hosting, they can open a ticket with us directly, absolving you of all support duties.
No matter which plan your clients sign up for, they can grant you access to their hosting environment using our custom linked accounts tool. No need to save dozens or hundreds of passwords!
Optionally have your clients sign up for our Platinum add-on and we'll provide top-notch hands-on support for everything web.
Still not sure which type of hosting is best for you? Take a read over our comprehensive guide to choosing the right hosting plan. We describe the benefits of each plan in detail and how they apply to website owners as compared to designers and developers.
Not a customer yet? Take a few days to learn how our Client Centre and hosting platform works, get comfortable with Plesk, benchmark our server performance and generally get a feel for things. Either sign up for our free web hosting plan or take advantage of our 30 day money back safety net and try Carbon or Titanium out.

Do you operate or work for a design firm? Have a design, but not sure how to build it in WordPress? Running low on time and/or recently lose a developer? Not getting the performance you want from your WordPress sites? We can help!
We'll analyze your design specs and turn them into high performance, high quality, and easy to edit WordPress sites. Our custom WordPress development matched with our powerful visual editing WordPress tools make for an easy to use, fully portable and fully owned, client-facing editing interface. It's WordPress like you've never seen it before.
As a first-class web hosting provider for more than a decade, we've worked with sites created by many development agencies, both local and overseas. Our attention to quality code is unmatched in the industry. We'd encourage you to ask any potential competitors what their QA process is like for the custom code, plugins, and themes they use to build your site. We're confident it won't compare.
Tap Our SEO Expertise
Every year Search Engine Optimization creeps further from the purview of web marketers and closer to web designers. Yet staying on top of the latest techniques can be extremely time consuming, especially when you've already got a lot on the go!
Lean on us to help. We know the intricacies of Google inside and out and provide that experience free of charge through our web marketing guides. And for those that don't want to or simply can't do it all themselves, we can do the research for you and create strong action plans for both on-site and off-site SEO for your clients.
Need something more than just recommendations? We've got you covered. Our closely guarded in-house built and incredibly powerful content network is available exclusively to our hosting clients. It can dramatically boost website authority in a safe, high-quality, and extremely effective manner. Don't waste time and money building hundreds of low-quality links that don't actually help your customers' sites after the next big algorithm change: do it right from the start and ask us about our content network.
While you can technically use the Titanium Plan in this manner, there are some hefty drawbacks to doing this. With the Titanium plan, each domain you add goes in one shared hosting space (Plesk calls them subscriptions or webspaces). Since the website files for all domains are located in the singular user folder, you can't set limits on your clients' storage and it also can potentially leave all other sites vulnerable to spreading infections if any one of the websites is hacked.
Because your customer's domains are not structurally separated from each other, if you ever wanted to separate that customer into their own hosting plan, it's nearly as tricky to do so as it is to move them from another web host (and thus is subject to our SiteMigrator service fee). Lastly, you can't give clients their own dedicated control panel access, without giving up access to your other clients' domains.
Titanium is truly intended to host a single customers' data who has multiple domains; not multiple clients.
Yes, this is another possible model for reselling our hosting. Rather than a singular reseller account where you set up your customer subscriptions in Plesk and manage everything from one account, you could order Helium, Carbon, or Titanium plans for each of your clients, but keep them all under your own Websavers account rather then referring the customer directly to us like in the affiliate model.
- When you reach 5 services with us, you get a multi-service discount of 10% across the board
- You may get hosting plans spread across multiple servers (this isn't guaranteed)
- This is likely cheaper in the beginning
- You have to manage each plan via separate Plesk logins
- You can't create service plans and therefore you can't control the hosting plans globally
- More costly in the long-run
- It may not be possible to merge hosting plans into a reseller plan without incurring migration fees (depends on the precise circumstances).
Since the drawbacks tend to outweigh the benefits and since all of these drawbacks are solved by taking advantage of a Reseller hosting plan or VPS, we don't actively promote this option, though you are welcome to proceed in this manner if you wish.
Activate your affiliate account here. Once activated you'll be provided with a unique affiliate URL that you can provide to friends, family, and/or add to your website. Share it however you see fit! A cookie will be placed in their browser for 30 days ensuring that if they order any services with us within that time, you will receive credit.
If your friend or client doesn’t use your referral link, simply have them send us a support request indicating that you should receive credit for the sign-up and we’ll be happy to mark you as the referrer.
- There is a 30-day hold placed on affiliate payouts to ensure the referral does not cancel and refund their service within our 30-day money back guarantee period. Upon the 31st day, you will able to login to the Client Centre and request withdrawal of the funds into your account. We will process the withdrawal via the method of your choice within 24 hours.
- Upon request for withdrawal of funds, we apply the funds as a credit on your account which will automatically be applied to any future invoices. You will then be required to only pay any remaining balance on your own invoice to renew the service in question. You may alternatively request to receive the balance via PayPal or Interac e-Transfer (Canadian banks only)
Thanks to our powerful rapid development model, in many instances our prices actually come pretty close to overseas quotes.
Most importantly, our custom code, theme code, and plugin selection goes through an in-depth vetting process. We examine the long-term viability of the code we use to build your sites on three levels:
- Security compliance
- Performance requirements
This quality assurance (QA) model ensures that core, plugin, and theme updates have as minimal an impact on the speed, security, and functionality of your site as possible. This results in higher speed and higher ranking websites and saves money in the long-run as you won't need to repeatedly pay developers to fix the site after updates that break their customized plugin or theme code.
Our design partners report that when we build sites for them the number of annual interventions drop from 10 to just 1 on average and their long-term maintenance costs are cut by nearly 80% thanks to our powerful QA methodology.
