Becoming a web reseller hosting is a good idea for anyone who wants to start a living online. There are various sources to make a living online. But I prefer the web hosting reseller because of its easy set-up and efficiency.

Step 1

If you already have various websites or offer webmaster services to client like domain registration, hosting or web design, becoming a web reseller hosting will be a very good idea for you. If your clients are also potential customers for a web hosting service that you can establish to provide a range of web master related services, then as a web hosting reseller you focus on your products and resell web hosting space for your customers.

Step 2

As a web reseller hosting, one is able to provide and set up a shared web hosting account for potential customers that has a few hit on their website at an affordable rate and also charge an extra fee for upgrading.

Step 5

First of all, you must choose the platform you want to use. There are different platforms available for potential clients online and it all varies depending on the platform you want to use.

While most programs (Perl, PHP, Flash, etc.) run on both platforms, a few run on only Windows or Linux.
