I would like to keep it cheap but if i had to set a budget i would say £40
Is this your monthly or annual budget??
You can easily find a good reseller hosting with standard features for around $5-10/month.

Heart internet use their own control panel, so moving away in the future maybe difficult. you should find a provider with a popular control panel such as Cpanel or Plesk that you could easily move your customers if you ever wanted to move or upgrade in the future.

A lot of designers use HeartInternet. It's pretty common and big in the UK. Being US-based, it's not quite as popular over here, but I have heard of it. Like CyberHostPro explained, they don't use cPanel so it may be difficult to move your clients if/when you decide to upgrade to a VPS or dedicated box. I'd recommend sticking to cPanel providers--it will keep the transfer process as painless and quick as possible.
You'll also narrow your search significantly by looking for providers with end user support. There's InnoHosting, EZPZHosting, ThePrimeHost, and a few others, but they are the prime contenders. I already said that I would highly recommend InnoHosting, and EZPZHosting is "ok" by my estimation. I haven't used ThePrimeHost, but I've worked with their sales team. Their sales team was satisfactory but not dazzling (I considered InnoHosting's sales team to be absolutely dazzling).
If you're looking to sell domains, you'll want to make sure that whichever reseller account you buy comes with something called a "Domain Reseller". This will give you another panel which you can integrate to your billing panel used to sell domains. This is usually done through a domain registrar like NetEarthOne, eNom, ResellerClub, etc.
Make sure you check reviews for whatever company that you go with (I've personally written reviews of both EZPZHosting and InnoHosting). Wishing you the best of luck in your search. Let us know how it goes!
Heartinternets reseller was good when i used it beginning of 2012 but now i have moved on from them.
The fact its not cpanel is kinda sucky, there control panel is ok (eXtend) .. just the fact its all direct debit/credit card for the reseller of domains and vps etc instead of a easier paypal is what put me off in the end. And also i had the odd spell every other week a server would be down for maintenance which kinda got annoying too!
This is all i really need to make some serious money
Just name me a couple of options I was attracted to heartinternet as there website is set out for STUPID PEOPLE and it works exiling everything out right downside no cpanal so need one with cpannel
Honestly, cpanel or no cpanel they offer everything you need to get started, and im sure they had a promo for first month for £1...(which they have had on forever)
Check out the reseller forums, skyehosting do all of that, and a few others do to, or what you could do is -
Setup a reseller account in enom
Purchase reseller hosting account with someone ( who include cpanel )
pick a nice host who you can resell vps/dedis from
setup a whmcs add the reseller hosting account into it, and setup the vps/dedis manually ..
And honestly forget about the serious money part for a long time, unless you have a hidden niche or a massive customer base waiting, the market is so saturated it will take a while for you to get known, become trusted and the customers begin to come in...
I would personally recommend you to start your venture with domain registration and shared hosting. There are several good providers.
If you would like to start cheap then check the below providers,
Resellerclub - Free domain reseller account which comes with all the other products required for you to resell. They also provide you with a readymade business website. If you are having your domain with resellerclub and hosting with the other, still you will be able to use the business site. Multiple payment options.
Resell Biz - They provide domain and reseller hosting options. Domain prices are one of the cheapest and there are not much TLDs when compared with resellerclub. Only credit card payment is accepted.
All the deposits that are mentioned in their respective sites can be utilized by us for purchasing products. So according to their strategy its a free reseller account. Also note that they deposit your reseller account only with the net amount, after deducting transaction charges if paid through paypal or credit cards.
