    Too good to be true reseller?

    While I was searching for a decent reseller hosting provider, I found this forum post http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=2158207.

    A seller is selling unlimited offshore reseller hosting with free (valid) whmcs for $85/yr.

    What do you think, are they giving away free *ILLEGAL VERSIONS* of whmcs? Their clientarea (whmcs) is a valid license (shows on your valid license tool)

    i suggest you not to buy "unlimited" gimmick for your business

    and buy whmcs license at WHMCS.com or their official reseller

    The best way is to contact WHMCS. Only they are able to verify it.

    If they have to tell you that the licence is "valid", then you shouldn't buy there. Find a more trustworthy company - DigitalPoint isn't exactly known for its web hosting professionals.

    This type of business plan is simply unsustainable. Not even those huge providers offer unlimited reseller plans.

    There is no such thing as unlimited. This is the reason unlimited is not allowed in WHT as it is not true.

    Better offers clear "500 GB" space than "Unlimited" space.

    For WHMCS, let say 85/year = 7/month. Unbelievable. Licensepal offers $12.95 / month.

    So for the unlimited space they have $-6/month. (minus $6)
    This is logically by any chance SCAM.

    I'm sure they get licenses cheaper and simply include them in there hosting plans as its direct customers and they are not reselling the license.

    Anyhow not exactly sure if its legit or not as mentioned it would be best to contact whmcs or ask the provider what name will appear on the license reg to : then contact whmcs.

    True but some of the most successful hosting companies offers unlimited plans, obviously it does work and there is a lot of money to be made.

    Try your best to stray away from providers as such. InnoHosting and EZPZ have feature filled reseller programs and are very reputable.

    That's because they have the network, the servers, and the staff to (usually) properly manage a sub-par service and still profit. The 'big guys' cut out the middle man and usually own the majority of their operation.

    This is not true for the majority of people who are simply offering 'Unlimited Hosting' with their cheap Reseller plan or VPS.

    The numbers just don't add up. Stay away , remember you get what you pay for , and it might be great for a couple months , then we will hear reports of "xyz host bit the dust".

    No way that they'd offer a legit license. Too cheap.

    That is $7/month for an unlimited reseller package.
    Say server fee is $300/month, excluding support cost.
    That means you will share the server with at least 50 other resellers, all use unlimited package, all plan to host unlimited domains.
    To make some profit, the host would pack 100 resellers, each reseller host only 50 domains, then how many domains are hosted on the server?
