    Reseller hosting is a good way to deploy secure hosting packages under your price tag and brand name. What are the other things required to promote a reseller hosting business to earn good online income?

    You should consider reselling web hosting mainly because it's residual income potential. You even get paid each year for domain name renewals!

    You can reap in the rewards from it, or it could turn badly. The good thing is, it requires very little funding, so if it does go wrong, you haven't lost a lot of money.

    I'd say go for it, providing you have the time you'd need to commit and the knowledge :)

    As Comspec says, the market is incredibly saturated these days. Big hosting companies are working on a cost per acquisition of $100-$250 per customer these days - and that customer might only have a value of a fraction of that on a yearly basis.

    The way to succeed from scratch today is to either have massively deep pockets, to target a niche, or to use your reseller hosting as a value added service to something else that you do (e.g. web design/web development).

    Hosting is COMPETITIVE! You'll need to be one hell of a marketer to compete.

    I'd have to think it's among the top 5% hardest places to start online.

    Out of curiosity, what type of basic knowledge should you know about before starting a reseller hosting business?

    Also, how do you find the best resellers to work with?
