   What is reseller web hosting?
   
  Reseller hosting works in this way: a web host provides a reseller hosting account (usually an account with large storage and bandwidth allowance) to the reseller who then resells this space and bandwidth to his or her own clients. The reseller is able to create his or her own hosting plans and is presented as the hosting company. Because the capital outlay and resources are provided by the web host, reseller web hosting is a simple and cost-effective way to start providing web hosting services. With its low entry barriers it has become a popular way to enter the hosting industry.
   
  TOP
   Do you need experience/education to start web hosting?
   
  Experience is always a good thing. It would be valuable to know and have experience with the technical side of web hosting. It must also be remembered that web hosting is a business and this entails many things. You need to know, or at least be able to learn about, legal requirements, accounting requirements, not to mention customer service skills.
   
   
   How do I know what to charge for hosting services?
   
  You should consider many factors when setting your prices for hosting and other services.
   
   
   What are similar hosting providers charging? What are your customers willing to pay? How much do you need to charge to cover your costs and make your business reasonably profitable?
   
  Finding the answers to these questions will require a fair amount of research on your part, so spend some time reviewing the sites of other web hosts, calculating your business costs and earning requirements, and as always asking questions of other hosts and resellers on hosting forums such as ResellerForums.com, WebHostingTalk, and the Web Host Directory Forums.
   
   
   How do I promote my web hosting business?
   
 

Start spreading the word about your business by listing your information in the online hosting directories: the Web Host Directory, FindMyHosting.com, CompareWebHosts.com, among others. You can find a comprehensive guide to other web host directories at HostDirs.com.

Make sure you're listed in the top search engines and pay-per-click resources, too: Google, AllTheWeb.com, Yahoo!, MSN Search, Ask Jeeves and Overture, among others.

Get the word out to your local business community by joining the local Chamber of Commerce, writing guest commentaries about online business for your local newspaper, advertising in area publications. Word of mouth can often be the most effective - and cost-effective - form of advertising you can get.
