The Venture Of Reselling
i need some opinions here guys.
I am thinking of starting a reseller section of my website, but i want to get opinions on how profitable you find it and how the ratio differs from shared hosting signup and reseller hosting signup
Thanks in Advance

Rapid, I have a much larger shared client base than reseller client base. This is mostly due to promoting the shared plans more. But in all honesty I find reseller clients are easier to deal with and often are able to troubleshoot most of thier own problems. Though on occasion you will get one that is new and needs to be guided through the processes, but once they know it I find them to be less Maintaince.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask, reselling does contain a larger profit for the resources but also in my opinion is harder to sell.

We have more resellers than shared accounts. that again is because of how we market. With reseller account you generally sell more space / transfer so you are getting more money per month.
We actually charge our shared accounts a higher rate for bandwidth than we do for resellers. Buy in bulk and save. So more profitable accounts are the shared accounts.
It really is going to depend on what type of business you are looking for.

resellers are profitable but you have to decide if you want them or not... that is really a hard choice. Most people go with them there is nothing really bad about them BUT there are however bad things
for example one of my resellers had a spammer on it and he hosted it ON PURPOSE... my server almost got blacklisted beacause of it. I caught them early ish on and so the problem did not go any furtherSeeksadmin - For all your administration and security needs.

I really appreciate your help, it has helped indeed
my decesion is to definetly release a reseller section but i am going to put it off a bit more and focus on the shared hosting.
