Introducing TapSuccess!

Welcome to TapSuccess!

Web Hosting is necessary to modern business and it is a near-monopoly, controlled by big corporate business. Self-Hosting is a way to have control over something you need, lowers your costs, pays for itself, can be profitable in a short time, and makes small business stronger.

Web Hosting is big business

Technically, self hosting is a reseller program. Malicious hackers are increasingly more sophisticated and has become big business. Ransomeware is a sophisticated team effort with high stakes. Security also needs to become more sophisticated team effort.

TapSuccess has partnered with one of the world’s top ten hosting companies to provide security and maintenance. TapSuccess partners with individuals and small businesses to make web hosting available everyone to share in the profits. TapSuccess reseller partners buy a plan (Basic or Pro) for products at cost. They receive a turnkey retail store stocked with products. Partners are small business owners and control their own prices, sales, hours and promotions.

Introducing Self Hosting

TapSuccess provides support, guarantee, checkout with personal and professional assistance. The cost is a once annual fee and partners have unlimited resources and complete freedom over which products they include to their customers. TapSuccess is good for small business.

TapSuccess was first registered in 2003, and was the beginning of a venture into web design, later web development, and now into Web Hosting.

The world has become a very different place. First it was IBM clone computers from Radio Shack, and then with digital power in the hands of everyone with the iPhone in 2007.

Web hosting became an industry. In the twenty-tens there were hundreds of web hosting companies. HostGator, HostMonster, BlueHost, GoDaddy, and later SiteGround, WPEngine, and countless more. Some companies were specialists in one form or another. For a while Apple built web servers. Companies specialized in one market or another.

Web Consolidation

Every industry goes through a growth process. At the beginning is innovation. Later an explosion of new companies expands with demand for products and services. Later, consolidation reduces competition as partnerships form “for better service”.

Gradually the public became knowledgeable about web hosting. Soon these companies became overly similar and started competing on price. This lead to cost-cutting. Endurance International Group began buying up hosting brands and removing or automating service, or eliminating it altogether.

Web Hosting is necessary

Web Hosting is a necessary cost of business, even for individuals and small businesses. The service is necessary and the cost is not insignificant. There are more threats from bad hackers (there are good hackers) and there are endless new services available. For example, at this writing (August 2021) there are 58,777 free plugins available at WordPress.org. There are premium plugins. Anyone with programming skills may create a WordPress plugin.

According to Wikipedia, Endurance International Group has consolidated many of the known brands, with shared support information and support agents. A partial list of subsidiaries and brands include:

How you can profit with Self Hosting

Self hosting is good for small business. The average annual cost for hosting a website is difficult to determine because needs and services vary widely. If we ignore the loss-leader and introductory first-year specials, the annual cost for BlueHost, GoDaddy and SiteGround can hover near $500. For eCommerce sites, that figure increases substantially. According to WebFX, the cost for hosting is $500 per month and more.

A Reseller plan from TapSuccess is less than $500 per year, including unlimited access to products, services and checkout (no merchant account needed). Reseller partners typically use their plan to build their own website (or use the one provided for them), become familiar with these products, and begin to offer these products to their communities.

Their plan provides a needed service, saves them money, pays for itself in a short time, and makes a profit. If reseller partners are not happy for any reason within the first 30 days, there is a full money-back guarantee. So far, no one has asked for a refund.
