I myself found ResellerClub's web hosting servers are way too slow to be recommended for any regular site. And it's definitely not worth the kind of money you need to pay for it. I wouldn't recommend to use RC for anything other than domains.
I would recommend maybe something small. Get a VPS with cpanel. Get clientexec or WHMCS for billing.
VPS is not always good to get started. Also it is very costly compared to reseller hosting.
Reseller hosting is perfect to start a hosting business.

You will have same situation/problem with resellerclub hosting also. You can hire a developer to integrate clientExec with a Wordpress theme.
Never tried ResellerClub hosting, but I will prefer / suggest to get cPanel reseller hosting from any different provider. However, they are best for domain reselling.

All depends on the products you want to sell to your end customers. If you are only trying to sell domains and shared hosting, then you can very well choose a provider who provides free domain reseller account when a decent reseller hosting is purchased.
If you want to sell many products like domains / shared hosting / reseller hosting / email hosting / vps servers / ssl / website builder then you can very well go to reseller club for the same.
These products can be automated in whmcs using a plugin which is sold by a partner of resellerclub. As a member, you will be able to get it for a 40% discount.
When i say automated, it means everything from allocation of account to cancellation. So you will have to just focus on your marketing. Saying that, yes their servers are somewhat slow when compared to few other hosts but at the same time it worth a shot.
I've not heard of ResellerClub but if you do end up finding a host that fits your budget, I recommend "WHMCS" for your Billing and integrating "cPanel" for your clients to manage there domain(s). You can add Wordpress scripts/plugins within cPanel that will automatically build a Wordpress site for your clients.
There are many many reseller web hosts here on WHT and even more on other sites etc... I suggest you try a few out by doing this I don't mean purchase service from them but rather shot them a couple questions in a ticket and see what their answers look like. Now this can be very basic questions things like do they allow overselling or private name servers. Even ask where are their server located and ask for download speed tests. Get an ip to ping from them. Doing this with many different hosts will narrow down your search and choices by hosts. Be sure to even check for reviews on the provider before signing up with then z
