That is NOT what Blue meant, and if anything, this forum is for providing this kind of feedback and support so that all of us are better off at the end of the day. If you didn't read and learn from someone else, you wouldn't know how to exist in this industry.

What Blue meant is that as a provider of reseller services he doesn't restrict or tells his resellers what to offer. Its up to them to decide. However, if they find themselves in an overselling position - well, that's something you can't control, and something they will have to deal with when the bills comes due.

Here it is once again:

If they over extend that is unfortunate but it's not something we can control. It's the nature of the beast.

I can on the other hand prevent resellers from offering unlimited accounts. With cPanel you can ensure that only the allocated resources are offered.

You really think they're going to take business from you? I'll help anyone who needs it.. Why? Because when I started out I had people bending over backwards to show me every inch of the business.. It's about giving back, because every success is usually owed to a mentor of sorts.

I don't look at it as competing at all. I offer what I offer, you offer what you offer.. Let the customer decide who's best for them.

I completely agree. There are plenty of prospects to go around. You'd be amazed at what comes back your way if you give without expecting reward.

Agree as well, have learned a lot from these communities where people have been so helpful in pointing in the right direction. From logo design, to plans, marketing, etc. If others have been helpful to me, then I am more then willing to try and help back the community. It's a win-win for everybody and also shows what kind of host you will be

Well usually packages already come with information on what they are getting, if they want to get a bit more they can always ask to see if they get more for the price they are given for more resources.

Much of this is addressed in plans, contracts or Terms of Service. This should ever never come as a surprise to either the host or the reseller.

I have a perfect example of that.. This week a member at WHT contacted me asking various questions about becoming a VPS provider. Many people would've just said "you need to figure that out yourself". And although it was helping the competition, I only spent 1 hour+ guiding this guy through his options, my suggestions, etc.

Long story short. He's hired me to design/develop his site & help setup shop. A project that'll keep me quite busy the entire week, all for an hour of "just giving back".

I would have to agree, when someone looking for a hositng plan on reseller or w/e they usually check out the plan and see if they want that much and they make their decisions based on such plans/contracts if any.

On my website you don't need limits, because you register and earn an free portal to sell all products offered, with cheap prices (http://reseller.regbet a.org/), REGISTER for FREE, and pay only when a customer bought your products
