I don't think so, but OVH don't seem to mind people reselling servers.

I completely agree with lacky, there are bad resellers but there are good ones as well. I have a good customer base and when they upgrade, they want to do it through me and not some company that they've never dealt with before.

All the reseller would be doing is adding customer support and management, and to be honest it would probalby be better for a lot of customers going through a reseller because OVH isn't exactly renowned for it's support - particularly for beginners that need a little help every so often.

OVH are cheap, have a great network and they are good when a server goes down (a technician always fixes any problems quickly, which I think is VERY good), but that's pretty much as far as support goes unless the hardware is broken. I think that there are people out there that could add some real value to the service and increase sales for OVH without them having to provide support.

Sounds like a win-win-win situation for OVH, resellers and end users.

Well that's your opinion. I know many people that trust me, and would buy a server from me. Sure, you'll have a bunch of fly-by-night resellers, but if no one buys from them, it's their loss, not yours, and if people do buy from them, both OVH and them make a nice profit.

I don't see this anyway other than win/win. OVH sells more servers, while having fewer clients to support, and resellers can give their clients quality servers at a great price.

Plus surley resellers will add charges ontop of there servers so they make a profit meaning OVH will loose out.
Because resellers should (not saying they will) add some sort of cost benefit, such as fully managed hosting, etc... Then again, it's entirely the customers choice, and either way OVH still benefits in the end

There are no restriction's with being a OVH reseller. You can be aged 12 or 81, live in London or in Glasgow, work on your own or in a family business, or in any company. Everything is possible. However, there is a reseller’s fee of £12 +VAT / year or £1 / month.

That's not really any different from setting up a web host from an OVH server and having international customers though. I'm sure people do that already.

It would be very limiting being told which countries you can only resell too. Also it would be very hard for them to control since it would be difficult for you to verify where your client is. Unless of course they implement the SMS verification program somehow in to your reseller account and you will have to get your clients to receive a text for activation which I don't see happening.

I doubt this restriction would apply but I guess we will see.

the method of my madness is why would they go to such new lengths to stop none uk residents ordering if they going to allow resellers to sell to anyone i agree the reseller scheme is a bit pointless if cant sell to other countries the only advantage i could see in goin to a reseller is managed services as for been dificult to verify client anyone thats providing dedicated services should verify where they are before purchase simply for the fact of fraud screening

1. If that was going to be the case everyone would open a reseller account when there available and get cheaper rates and thats not the idea of the reseller account really.

2. You can't sell or lease a OVH server to anyone else at the moment as per the T&C so I'm not sure what you mean by "adding servers now"

Section 3 of the terms and conditions says:

"3.1 The Dedicated Server shall remain the property of the Supplier at all times. The Customer shall not be entitled to sell, transfer, lease, charge, assign by way of security or otherwise deal in or encumber the Dedicated Server."

The reseller is like a sponsor. He orders the server for his client who will never know that's a Ovh server (except with the traceroute..). The server is under the nichandle of the client, but he doesn't know that, because the reseller is between him and Ovh. So everyone (the client, the reseller) gets the 101mbps limit on his own servers.

Whats the point in this reseller account?

what discount do we get for the servers?

andonce a server is sold will your logo be showen? How about maybe allowing us to brand our own invoices to the customers etc?

Or simply offering unlimited colocation within the dc in the uk, Will you be offering that in the future? You want to beat these crap hosts http://www.valuehost.co.uk/colocation/

How will the SLA system work with people that are registered as resellers? Will there still be a 101Mbit/s limit over all servers before noSLA kicks in? I just wanted to check this as it's clearly going to be a big disadvantage for people using resellers if this is the case.

Professionals are... buzy so they make one message and post it on all newsgroups.. And on the french forum we get also english messages, on the PL/DE too.. each turn

Waiting the translation.. it's a system for people using OVH services as a reseller : with the "Espace Revendeur", they will get a % on each sale. It's as the "Espace Fidelité", but your client doesn't win the points but... you, the reseller (even more points)

Hello,

Step 1: The Loyalty scheme ...
Step 2: The Reseller account...

Who is it for?
----------

For companies or individuals who sell our products, our services and solutions. There are no restriction's with being a OVH reseller. You can be aged 12 or 81, live in London or in Glasgow, work on your own or in a family business, or in any company. Everything is possible. However, there is a reseller’s fee of £12 +VAT / year or £1 / month.

What is it for?
----------

When ordering services for your customers, your cousins, or for yourself, you will have the possibility of entering a Reseller Identifier (NIC) along with the order. So even though your customer has a fidelity account, it is not him who will earn the points, but you. And for good! And you earn significantly more points than in the case of a fidelity account.

Also, if your client renews his service at OVH (so you are the sales agent), you win the points automatically without actually doing anything more because you have sold our product and that's all ...If you renew it for your client (so you work as a White Label) you earn points in the same way.

With these points, you can buy new services but also automatically renew existing services you have with us or services that your customers have with us.

From when? Limitations?
----------------------------

This service is being finalized. Basically, we just need to define the number of points resellers will win on each service that OVH offers. We will also propose promotion's on a reseller’s subscription. There is no limit at current with the use of these points.

How to activate it?
-----------------

You will be able to activate this service in a few days.

Alpha, Beta, Production, Dev
----------------------------

The service is still under development. More options are coming and with some really interesting ones.

Regards,
Octave
