I can't imagine how complicated it is to start your own web hosting business, and how much money you need to invest on it. So, do you think it is a good start to sell hosting packages as a web hosting reseller?
If you are starting web hosting business, I would recommend to get a hosting provider who provides a good support to you and your clients too. I don't think there is any problem to sell reseller package at start. Also I agree with Plexihost.
Good Luck !!
A lot of successfull providers have started as resellers. Best to have a business plan upfront ... dot all the i's and cross all the t's . Good luck.

Yeah, having a solid business plan is really a must in this industry. You can make it or break it. You can use reseller hosting to get your leg up, so long as you have a business plan and your eyes set on a good direction you'll do okay.
A good business plan is always the best way to go when starting any kind of business. Without one, businesses tend to fail, however, I don't think HostGator having 3 servers in a basement had a business plan. It really just depends on the business and technical skill of the founder.
My suggestion for starting a hosting company would be to go with reseller hosting if you don't have much experience or don't have all the time in the world to devote to your customers. Reseller hosting is just the easiest option to start out, given that you are provided all the relevant tools to start-up.
