    looking to start small.....real small

    I saw a few reseller accounts for $5 or less....but they just don't look that professional....espically when the the whois contact is a free email address like yahoo.com.au.

    there are some better ones out there, you could try Host Quote at the top of the page. Are you thinking about Linux or Windows based, maybe we can recommend some people.

    Will your customers be technical in nature? Will they
    do their own administration through the control panel
    or are you planning on setting up their email accounts,
    etc?

    If you are handling everything yourself, you could just
    get a small hosting account that supports multiple domains
    and just go that route. If your hosting efforts produce
    some growth you could upgrade to a full featured, but
    higher priced reseller account that will give you the
    ability to compete against the 1000000s of other
    resellers out there.

    Good luck.

    my 2 customers

    One customer is the restaurant where I work. I do all the webdesign and hosting for them. The other is a friend of mine that does everything himself. I was basically looking to start small and have these accounts cover my expenses while I started to build up more customers and eventually upgrade to larger plans when I start to make a profit...instead of buying everything up front and hoping to compete with the other 100,000,000 resellers.

    I would recommend starting at the 19.99/mo level or something like that. Don't fall for any cheap tricks. Maybe you can charge your customers just a bit more to help cover your costs initially.

    Personally I'd be looking for 29.99-49.99/mo packages that
    include features to help make your growth easier and profits
    higher.

    Your plan of not biting off more than you can chew is a good.
    You are already avoiding some of the first mistakes people
    make when they get into this business.

    Well I am not sure where you are coming from with the $19.99 assumption. There are many good hosts out there with cheaper hosting plans then that. It depends on how much space and Bandwidth you want to start with. I don't want to come off here like I am advertising so if this comment is considered advertising mods please remove it. But we crunched numbers and everything and we can offer reseller packages pretty cheap. Doesn't mean our company or our servers are no good. It is all part of our business plan. Anyway just go with what you feel comfortable with.
