    man you actually cannot hurt me, many have tried but failed

    any ways, what i mean is

    1. what do you want
      reseller hosting or vps business?

    2. what is your budget, or else how much can you spare?

    then you must look at what options you have in that much money

    in case you want to jump start with the vps, that may turn out to be a costly affair (not knowing your technical know hows, how much you may be familiar)
    but will be lot time and resource consuming

    but yes, you decide on your wallet spare, then surf here

    shared hosting offers

    or

    vps offers

    still if you feel you are not sure and need more, if not all, most of us are here to help you

    There are many many variables.

    How many accounts do you want to sell?

    Depending where you go, base reseller plans are gonna be 5, 10 up to 50 domains and you'd have to upgrade to do any more. You should plan your intentions. Open a doc and write it all down.

    So, let me see if I understand correctly:

    • You have $100 pocket money and you think, starting a web hosting company by reselling a random cheap service you found on LET and never tested in the long way by yourself would be a good fresh beginning.

    • If you will not find it interesting (I guess, profiting), then, you will abandon it leaving any clients that had the bad luck to host something with you, without their services.

    • If, while running the "hosting company", a major issue occur either because of the reseller (DC outage, bankraupt, rising of the price, corrupted server etc.) or, maybe, because of a hacked wordpress belonging to one of your clients your account starts to DDoSing and the reseller kickes you out, you have no idea how to deal with it.

    • I also guess that support with the plans you willing to sell, is not included for the $100 total cost of your "company".

    • And in the budget of $100, I guess you don't have any plan of redundancy, backups, taxes, formatting a company etc. Or you do?

    Starting a "hosting company" by reselling shared hosting like this, is more of an attempt to cheat your potential customers just to get some more bucks for your weekly allowance from your parents. That's just scam. And you are trying to hide it calling some of LET members as... "trolls", when you are just a kiddo willing to play with other people's work...

    _Sigh_

    But, after all, who am I to judge? Go on, kid! Live your dreams!

  • deankdeank Member, Troll

    The thing is that people like you share several common traits that drive you to fail.

    This is not some gaming or indie dev stuff where you can learn as you go. You are attempting to enter a business where you will deal with other people's money pretty much immediately.

    If you were truly sincere about what you are trying to do, you wouldn't ask on a public forum.
    Remember: People tend to do business in a subject they are well versed in.

    Are you?

    I think what people are pointing out is your idea of 're-selling' may not be on par with what you actually need to do. Most services that support re-sellers only sell the resources on to you and then expect YOU to support the customer directly. Of course you can ticket and request assistance from the re-seller, should it be an issue specific to the platform, but otherwise you should be ready to support your customers directly.

    Additionally, if you are going into this, even as a sole trader, there are a bunch of things you need to do first before you should even consider selling a product:

    • Your own website
    • Your own billing system
    • Payment merchants to handle payments to you for the service
    • Your own support ticket system
    • Your own TOS and AUP stating what you support / don't allow

    So, again, what this means is simply spending $100.00 per month isn't going to make you a re-seller or get you to a point where you are making money. You will need to put A LOT more effort into things, for example, setting up infrastructure for your self before you even consider finding a platform to partner with and resell.

    So the reason you are feeling insulted here is, at least from what I can see, you never did any research on your own on this subject and thought someone would just tell you , "go pay X provider X and it's all good bro", when that isn't how things work. It's good people are exposing that you are unprepared now so that you don't waste your money trying this out without understanding what you will need from your side. No matter which way you do this it is not as simple as just 'buying a re-seller account' and then 'Profit$$$'.

    The people who do re-sell or are doing similar things to what you are suggesting have already figured these things out and are simply trying to prevent you from screwing your self if you really think things are that easy.

    my 2 cents.

    Cheers!

    @TheLinuxBug exactly, I heard it from a friend that you should start selling web hostings as it's not that hot-topic in our country right now! I agree I didn't do any research from my end and just came here like a kiddo bashing have - 100$ want - unlimited $$$ to profit - I swear my intentions are not even close to this type of planning , the only thing I researched was the resellers right now and was confused about it! I really appreciate your kind words ! I'll surely do a little more research about it first!

  • @tgl Done Sir!

  • About the business I guess you first need to decide your target customers (mainly locations) and then see about the resellers, right now there are a lot of hosting companies out there so you need something to make you special in order to make it against the competition, maybe you want to start a niche for hosting exotic locations.

    Then you need to do some market analysis (e.g. SWOT, surveys), estimate your costs, decide on a budget, plan your sales and marketing strategies, build your website, sign the contract, and start advertising your business, and don't forget:

    https://www.fundera.com/blog/what-percentage-of-small-businesses-fail

    If its a side-business the risk is not that high, it will be just like an extra income if you do the math correctly.

    Trying to launch a general shared hosting service that competes with the big guys using reseller services is not going to succeed in 2019. That ship sailed 20 years ago.

    However, selling shared hosting where you are providing some kind of value-add is quite doable. The classic example is a web designer who creates web sites for clients and then charges them $X per month to host it as well. There are still many people who don't want the hassle of managing their own shared hosting and are happy to turn it over to "their web guy".

    Those kind of customers are not found by posting on LET or WHT. The bulk of the work there is in the design part of it, not the hosting part...that's just additional service revenue.

    In short, if you think you're going to be the next Hostgator by reading "Your First 1,000 Customers in Web Hosting" and starting with a reseller account, you're not...that business model is dead. OTOH, doing web design and then hosting for your customers, or doing professional YouTube video production and also doing their web site, or becoming an expert in a particular web app and hosting it for people, etc. are still legitimate ways to make money in shared hosting.

    Note that these are all endeavors with a ton of competition.

    That's the first bad common trait of many.

    Another trait is that they never seem to take on the good advice and go with bad ones.

    Another is that they've got really thin skin and get offended easily, going PMS easily.

I'm a frontend Dev. by profession and I'm preparing to start my own set-up - I've got couple of clients as well and they are ready to pay us for managing there hosting and stuffs! It's just that isn't it possible I can show them something that I own a web hosting business and in the back end get something reliable? Of course I want to provide the best to my clients! It's not about profiting right now. It's about building relationships right now!

  • @deank I didn't got offended mate I respect each and every comments from all of you.. I know it's common to listen these type of things when you're new into something ! It requires a lot a courage & patience in order to start something by your own! I'm sorry if I hurt you or anyone in anyway!

    Short version: DON'T!

    Running a hosting operation is much more than having some systems on offer (or on reselling).This advice is even more valid when you need a panel.
