You should request about 2gb of space and 20gb bandwidth, I think thats what they normally give. Prices can range from $20-$60/month.
Search around those sites, see which have good speed and uptime, search these forums for posts about them too.
You may also wish to post a Reseller Request in the Web Hosting Requests forum. Decide what you need and ask, or just say like, what can you give me for about £?? a month and theyll post you some packages - maybe customized.
My point is, that there are A LOT of recommended resellers on this forum, who, pretty-much, according to the forums have both good uptime and support, reliability, etc. so taking that into consideration: I'm interested in which of these reliable, companies has the best value for the dollar in terms of bandwidth and disk space.
And my second part of the post was inquiring about how to split up the space and sell it, and recomendations.
20 gb a month isn't a lot to resell.
thats only like selling 10 2 gb a month accounts. I want to know how people are setting up their reseller accounts just to make some sense for me.
Let me explain it this way. Very few resllers will make it trying to compete at the prices you see here on WHT so if you are trying to use that as a gauge you are doomed as a reseller.
Most resellers sell local get a decent amount of clients then branch out from there. There are lots of people out there that run business or need sites in your local area, as a reseller you can get that business and remain very competitive. They are not hung up on getting an account with 1 gig of space of which they will use 25 megs of or 20 gigs of transfer they will only use 500 megs of. Local people want a web site they want it to work that is all, they are willing to pay a little more because they are not web hosting geeks.
On the other hand if your plan is to buy a reseller account and compete solely over the web in price and features, get a dedicated instead and jump in the fray.
