Reseller Web Hosting - A Cheaper Alternative?

There comes a time when the internet bug hits us all and we tendto acquire a wealth of domain names and web sites to feed ourfrenzy.

We start out with the best intentions, set up a personal homepage with a few details about ourselves, then create more for ourfamily, then our business and before we know it we have severaldomain names and web sites spread across several web hostingcompanies.

A more convenient approach would be to set yourself up with areseller account with one hosting company.

Most people assume that to have a reseller account, you need tobe in the business of selling hosting. This is not true. Anyonecan set up a reseller account and enjoy the benefits of savingmoney and also having the convenience of only dealing with onecompany for all your hosting needs.

I'll take my hosting reseller asan example. They provide a very competitive reseller accountpriced at $35. Their Reseller's Package allows you to host 100Domains. You are allowed to give every Domain you host up to20GB's of monthly transfer and up to 2.5GB of storage.

Previously I had over ten domain names and associated web sitesthat were costing me around $5 - $10 a month to host. The averagemonths hosting costs were around $50 - $60. Therefore, by settingup a reseller account and transferring my domains and web sitesover to my reseller account I made an instant saving of $15 amonth.

Now, another extension of this would be to start selling hostingto your friends, after all, you have a reseller account. So ifyou have ten friends, ask them if they would like web hosting onyour server, maybe offer it free to them and ask them torecommend your services to their friends, these can then become"paying" customers. Now YOU can get people to pay for hosting andmake back the monthly reseller fee. Just sell ten accounts for $3a month and you have instant income of $30 to offset the $35reseller fee you are paying. So you get hosting for $5 a monthfor as many domains and sites as you like.

So, with the reseller account you have helped yourself, helpedyour friends, and possibly started making money as well.
