Become A Reseller
If done properly, reselling web hosting and related services can be a low maintenance, high profit vehicle to online financial independence!
Reseller programs allow businesses to lease servers, connectors and bandwidth from established hosting firms but brand the product at their own. Resellers act independent of hosting companies and are not construed as employees. Most get paid based on signups and paid on a recurring basis for each customer who retains your services.
You must first determine exactly what it is you wish to resell. What type of reseller you become depends on what you would like to outsource; most hosting companies like to outsource as much as possible so they can concentrate on running the business end of things.
The next logical step is actually choosing a program. There are many out there, but make sure to select one from an established company with a positive track record. While others may promise a higher yield, it's always best affiliating with an established and experienced company.
Once you've established your business, it's time to attract customers. When venturing out, your best bet are individuals and smaller firms such as yourself. Most of these type of customers will have small sites and won't be concerned about high tech mumbo jumbo.
Even some of today's largest hosting companies simply resell because it cuts down on staffing and equipment expenses in exchange for a reasonable fee.
Of course, web hosting isn't the only product or service with reseller capabilities. Choose a situation where you feel comfortable, find out if reseller slots are available and go for it!
