If you know what being a web hosting reseller is already skip down past the line.
[url=http://thewhir.com/reseller/articles/intro.cfm]If executed properly, reselling Web hosting and related services can be a low-maintenance, high-profit way to online success. Reseller programs allow businesses to lease servers, connections and bandwidth from established hosting firms, but brand the product as their own.
Even some of today’s biggest hosting companies simply resell the products of bigger companies because it cuts down on staffing and equipment expenses in exchange for a reasonable fee. [/url]

Does anyone have any experience with doing this? I’m considering purchasing a reseller hosting plan, not to make money, but because I think it’ll be cheaper for me to do (I’m in the process of buying some new silly domains I want to host). After spending some time looking at different reselling plans I’m beginning to think I could be a “legit” reseller and make a little money.
My current host (phpwebhosting.com) would want me to pay for a new account for every new domain I register (9.95US). They’ve been good to my as a one domain holder, but now I want to move on to multiple domains (separate sites, not just pointers).
I think I could make enough money so I don’t pay anything to host the domains I have by undercutting my friends current hosts . Well… If anyone has anything to say on this topic I’d like to here it.
I haven’t done much research thus far. All I’ve done is look at a couple of sites that allow for unlimited domains with a bunch of web space and bandwidth. Then I think I could set people up with their own domain and limit their space and bandwidth (if I wanted to).
