    What would you suggest my friend to start?
    Join an affiliate program offered by hosting company or buy reseller plans and start providing own hosting business?

    Any comments will be much more appreciated..

    Depending on their knowledge and experience I would suggest buying reseller hosting and providing hosting services - especially if they can couple that with site builds or find a provider who can.

    pacifich if they are asking the question it would suggest to me that they would be better starting off with affiliate promotion. I say that because you need access to a lot of tech knowledge and skill, to set up and support reseller hosting. If your friend does not have that knowledge and skill they should probably try affiliate marketing. This will also have the advantage of allowing them to learn a lot about hosting, which would allow them to begin reselling at a later time.
