There comes a time when the internet bug hits us all and we tend
to acquire a wealth of domain names and web sites to feed our
We start out with the best intentions, set up a personal
home page with a few details about ourselves, then create
more for our family, then our business and before we know
it we have several domain names and web sites spread across
several web hosting companies.
A more convenient approach would be to set yourself up with a
reseller account with one hosting company.
Most people assume that to have a reseller account, you need to
be in the business of selling hosting. This is not true. Anyone can
set up a reseller account and enjoy the benefits of saving money and
also having the convenience of only dealing with one company for all
your hosting needs.
I'll take my hosting reseller http://www.hostingrevolution.com/
as an example. They provide a very competitive reseller account
priced at $35. Their Reseller's Package allows you to host
100 Domains. You are allowed to give every Domain you host
up to 20GB's of monthly transfer and up to 2.5GB of storage.
Previously I had over ten domain names and associated web sites
that were costing me around $5 - $10 a month to host. The average
months hosting costs were around $50 - $60. Therefore, by setting up
a reseller account and transferring my domains and web sites over to
my reseller account I made an instant saving of $15 a month.
Now, another extension of this would be to start selling hosting
to your friends, after all, you have a reseller account. So if you
have ten friends, ask them if they would like web hosting on your
server, maybe offer it free to them and ask them to recommend your
services to their friends, these can then become "paying" customers.
Now YOU can get people to pay for hosting and make back the monthly
reseller fee. Just sell ten accounts for $3 a month and you have
instant income of $30 to offset the $35 reseller fee you are paying.
So you get hosting for $5 a month for as many domains and sites as
So, with the reseller account you have helped yourself, helped
your friends, and possibly started making money as well.
