Dropmysite’s white-label to help resellers maximise profits

- By white-labelling Dropmysite, resellers can rebrand and sell the service as their own
- API available on PHP, plugins for c-Panel and Parallel Plesk; more being worked on
SINGAPORE-based Dropmysite, the startup aiming ‘to back up the Internet,’ has launched white-labelling for its automatic website/ database backup service.
This will help its network of resellers to maximise profits and move sales even faster, the company said in a statement.
By white-labelling Dropmysite, resellers like hosting companies can rebrand and sell the service as their own. This would enable resellers to build their own brand, sell directly on their websites and benefit from any repeat business, the startup said.
“We offer resellers an important and new value added service that helps them increase their ARPU (average revenue per user),” said John Leung, vice president of Asia sales at Dropmysite.
“In return, resellers afford us access to an existing and loyal large customer base, which is critical to deploying and scaling our solutions,” he added.
Resellers can capitalise on their existing territory, client base or market to promote the website and database backup service beyond Dropmysite’s capability (or money) and reach, the company said.
This platform is also making it much simpler for Dropmysite’s existing reseller deals with GMO Cloud, Xpress Hostings and others to integrate.
To assist in the easy white-labelling process, Dropmysite launched its API (Application Programming Interface) in the PHP language, since the majority of web-hosting companies support PHP by default.
Any company with PHP knowledge should be able to use the white-label API and implement Dropmysite with their own branding, images, layout and so on.
Dropmysite has also prepared plugins to c-Panel and Parallel Plesk. Resellers mainly use these platforms so that their clients can easily set up websites on their own without knowing all the technical aspects of it.
Once the Dropmysite plugins are installed on the respective platforms, the clients can access all Dropmysite's functionalities from within c-Panel / Plesk interface without leaving the page, Dropmysite claimed.
These plugins are similar to apps on Apple Store or Play Store. Once installed on the phone, users can access the site from within their phone without using a desktop or laptop.
For examples on how to use the white-label API, users can sign up on Dropmysite’s reseller page.
