    I am sorry to say this, but a 40 reseller that is a " bit out of my budget" says to me that this business is not for you.

    As a host today, you need to either have 1 a USP that is far greater than other hosts (unlikely), or a lot of start up capital for various things such as advertising, servers, support, website designs etc etc.

    Two years ago, 50 a month would see you ok in the hosting sector, however today, unless you are a very very good salesmen or just have the best luck in the world, you might aswell forget it as it is a saturated market now.

    This is only my opinion. You might ignore it, and become the next site5. However the odds are stacked against you.
