    Lightbulb New Host Needs Your Help


    My family is in the poor house right now, and I've decided the best way to fix this is online. I came across hosting, and decided this is what I should do.

    I want to resell reseller hosting accounts.

    I want each customer I sell to to have their own whm and cpanels, etc.

    I need unlimited space if possible for unlimited domains.

    I want to spend about $120 a month or less.

    Any ideas?

    unlimited space is impossible. Your best bet would be a server though if you want to offer reseller accounts and have unlimited space. $120 can get you a lower end server. Check around the dedicated server offers or check signatures. Hope this helps.

    Welcome to WHT specialparking. You can try using the Host Quote System or look through the Web Hosting Offers Forum.

    Also read through WHT to get a good idea what is involved in the Hosting Industry. This is not really a quick fix. You can make money in time. I would suggest looking for a niche market or local business that need help going online.

    Since you want to resell resellers, you would need root access, therefore a vps or dedicated server.

    The most cost effective: AngelNetworkz.Net

    Amd 2000 for $75, free setup.

    It's your best choice,

    Good Luck, hope you will be successful

    I agree, an entry level server from AngelNetworkz.Net, ServerMatrix, or even BURST should leave room for growth while speeding up development of your newest venture.

    As others have said, you should not just start it. Failing to plan is planning to fail. Take time and read a lot about the industry. Read hundreds of threads on different topics and make full use of the search feature

    Note that although some things are promised (like unlimited space/bandwidth) these do not exist. They are just hype. promises that could not possibly be fulfilled. AFAIK there is no quick way to make money. There are lots of ways to lose money trying to make a quick buck though.

    Best of luck!

    Web Hosting isn't an easy market to enter. It is oversaturated already...

    If your family is in the poor house then you need to make some money fast so you can put food on the table right?

    Then don't start a hosting business, because it is definitely not a fast way to make money (it is a way to make money just not fast) I would suggest that you use the $120 dollars and maybe buy some window cleaning equipment and clean your local business windows or something like that to earn some dollars now not in 2 or 3 months time maybe more.

    If you are genuine in your reasons to make money (family poor) then don't risk blowing your $120 because if you don't get any clients in the first month or the second month you need to come up with that $120 each month regardless.

    Bright-Byte is right but not 100% )
    maybe specialparking like this business and he has his own we have to encourage him in this way.
    i would like to advice you to not invest all your 120 $ in the first month, try to purchase small account and upgrade it when you have more customers so it will be easy to make paiement for the next month.
    good luck !
