    Their is a company I looked at a while ago that you signed up and were a reseller for. They did not look promising.

    Best thing to do, as I see it, is sign up for being an affiliate of a company like hostgator. Or sign up as an affiliate of several and start a web host review site and drive it to #1 in the SERPs.

    I agree with Pendelton, there are some excellent hosting affiliate schemes out there, such as HostGator. They pay up to $125 for every customer that signs up through your link.

    As a reseller you would need to provide technical support to your clients. Before becoming a reseller you should ask yourself if you have the skills, knowledge and time to provide this support.

    Well, there are reseller packages where you just promote on custom prices the packaged of the host-company and they give the support to the customers.
    If you would like to get more serious though, go with a dedicated server.

    The main thing is to not quit if you do go ahead and create a hosting business. You may not get any customers in your first few months of operation but if you keep pushing and advertising, then you will get some clients.

    The main idea behind reseller hosting is to providing hosting service for the web development company's who need to provide hosting for there clients . Using reseller hosting package to start providing hosting service for general crowd is not a good idea , i know few hosting company's who started there business with the help of this kind of reseller plan but very soon they moved to dedicated servers or there own data center . If you are planing to start providing web hosting service by buying reseller hosting is not a good idea

    Re:

    VPS is much the same level with dedicated server, so you can create reseller accounts. However, if you are not familiar with VPS/server, you should be careful when choosing a VPS.

    Do reseller hosting on a flat price, not on a commission-basis. In other words if they charge you $25/month to sell as much hosting as you want and you get to keep all the revenue except for the $25 payment, this is a good deal. If they say they will give you 30% of all recurring fees this is paultry.

    No, I don't but you should be able to find an agreement for a couple dollars per domain.

    I totally agree with the fergal post.Try from the hostgator or dreamhost.Their are many hosting companies paying commisions for refering someone.This days reseller plans are not a worth at all.
    And if you are running some website designing then i can surely suggest to you get reseller or vps because you will get more clients from local area

    a reseller you would require to supply mechanical support to your clients. Before evolving a reseller you should inquire yourself if you have the abilities, information and time to supply this support.

    It has good results and high volume searches on the search engines because many of the business started to make their online presence

    To create a successful hosting company, I suggest that you do not get a reseller. Instead you should think of getting a VPS.

    For reseller hosting business one need to give full time efforts but he himself can decide his profit margin, and you can work as a web hosting affiliate as a part time where you will receive a fixed commission on the amount of web hosting package get converted because of you.

    Resellet hosting can be quite a risk. You need to start small here and monitor everything. I think only 10% of people get successful on this scope. [​IMG]
