    I know that server.lu cuts setup fee for resellers,
    from my own experience server.lu has a top-class DC.
    You can check Leaseweb too.

    Sorry forgot to state that I'm looking at UK.

    On some sites they dont say they resell dedicated servers, would that mean they dont do it or that I would need to contact them personally for that sort of information?

    The best thing to do is contact them because they may not list that you can resell on the site, but they may actually allow you too.

    Look around google for UK hosts then check reviews to make sure they are a decent host.

    As Jake said, best thing to do is contact them. A few things you may want to look for when reselling servers:

    The host owns their own hardware
    Rent their own Racks OR have their own Datacentre
    Utilise a high speed redundant network
    Have reliable support (sure you'll find reviews all over these forums for many hosts)

    Check out TailorMadeServers.com

    They have a very good reseller program. Their service and support are both top-notch. The discounts are quite good as well. They are in Dallas - servers at Colo4Dallas DC.

    He is looking for something in the UK. But I do agree, Jose does run a tight ship over there.

    Do you want to resell unmanaged or managed dedicated servers?

    When you resell servers you should consider the risk of the business. After payment processing costs at 3% or more depending on payment processor, you will be operating at slim margins. Let's say you make $20 per month for 1 server that costs you $100 from the provider. If that person chargeback, you just lost 5 months of profit.

    If you try finding a reseller which gives great pricing, then you can make the profit margin a bit higher and not have it be that big of an issue.

    UK server availability is limited and more expensive as pretty much everything is imported.
    We find that buying from the US, and shipping to the UK ourselves, is much more cost effective.
    No import fees in the UK for computer parts/servers, and as long as not in a huge rush, the shipping costs are not horrible in comparison to the hardware savings.

    Depending on the amount of servers you buy / turnover. We receive around 45% off RRP from Dell in the UK.

    Also depends on the type of hardware you're using.
