You're the webmaster of more than one website. You design websites for clients. Your business needs more than one site. Is a web host reseller account for you?
1. Individuals or businesses with more than one website
If you have more than one website and the total disk space you need is 500 MB or more, you can benefit from having a reseller account. The cost for web hosting is lower than if you have individual accounts for each site. Also, you can adjust the disk space and bandwidth allocations for each site.
2. Related service providers
A reseller account is also useful for people who provide related services. If you're a web designer, for example, why stop at designing sites? Provide your clients with web hosting under your company name, and you continue to earn revenue from your web design clients.
Let's say that you pay $40 a month for a 3-GB reseller account. If you offer 30 100-MB packages at $7 a month, you could earn up to $170 a month (after subtracting your cost) from that reseller account. Add on additional services such as search engine optimization and website maintenance, and your revenue increases again.
Many resellers are entrepreneurs just like you. Most started their Web hosting companies from scratch or as a complement to other businesses.
