Starting your own web hosting business is much easier, and probably not as expensive, as you may think. You can actually get started with Host Gator for only 24.95 per month.
Here is how it works:
As a web host reseller you will be completely in charge of the rates and features of your hosting packages. You pay a set small monthly fee and keep 100% of the money your clients pay for hosting (minus any payment processor fees of course).
First you will create your hosting packages from within your Reseller cPanel Web Hosting Manager. Here is where you will define the disc space, bandwidth, and other limitations of each hosting package.
Once you have created your hosting packages you will then go to your WHM Autopilot admin and setup the same packages along with the addition of the rates. You can even give discounts for those who want to pay for more than one month in advance. You can offer the first month free, and even create special discount coupons as you need them.
The WHM Autopilot makes your job very easy as everything can be completely automated from ordering to account creation. Your clients will be able to visit your site, place an order for hosting, make payment and start to build their website right away. Their hosting account will automatically be set up in cPanel and they will receive confirmation emails including their log in credentials.
The WHM Autopilot will also take care of your billing and invoices for you.
Now you can see why it is called the “Autopilot”!
The tools that Host Gator provides to you will make managing your hosting clients very easy. If you ever run into any problems or you have any questions their support is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Many people use a hosting reseller account to host and manage their own websites. In fact, that is an excellent use for the service. You can host all your domains within your reseller account and pay only the one small monthly fee.
