Reseller Web Hosting
Web hosting companies allow reselling of hosting resources (disc space, bandwidth and others) to users and companies. Usually web developers have reseller account so they can easily setup hosting accounts for their clients to easily manage websites. If you are planning to start a web hosting company then reseller account is something you should begin with. You do not need to have any technical knowledge of setting up web servers, configuring software or linux administration whatsoever, but you will need to know how to setup accounts using control panel, manage billing, and provide support to the end users. Most resellers are able to establish branding of the services they resell. Most of the hosts offer integrated billing solutions like WHMCS or WHM.AutoPilot for free for resellers, cPanel control panel and other hosting tools to you to make it easier to sell even more. HostGator even gives you free ENOM domain reseller account so you can sell domains to your clients. Reseller hosting is more expensive than shared hosting, with prices from $15 and up depending on the host and reseller features. Here are couple of web hosts that offer reseller hosting: HostGator (currently the biggest reseller company), Hostnine, Lunarpages, Justhost and others.
