I doubt making that much money is that easy at all. Especially when selling off of resellers.

I agree, if i was making that type of money i would not be using a reseller, i would get my own black box DC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Modular_Datacenter)

All depends on the volume you push and what discounts this reseller is able to get though.

I'd recommend to run reseller business simultaneously with your current job. As this is not a quick method to get rich
But if you 're ready to work hard, then who knows, maybe you'll become next industry leader
Cheers!

Hello,

I hold a Reseller Hosting with my business. I have developed it in a portfolio way. I believe credit unions use this thorey and it works as well as I have a lot of clients.

We start you on the basic portfolio, once you have reached a certain amount of reciepts or $$$ then we will move you onto the next level.

We have made all the levels easy for you to reach. We also offer our customers special discounted deals on local events, music fesitvals ect so that they can give them to their customers as well as an incentive.

It works very well.

I believe you can grown you business to make 70,000 a year, even after taxes, but not from a $100 reseller account, to generate that income you would need to host alot of sites, more than any single server I've seen would handle.
But it's a good place to start! But you would probably be better off with a good VPS and a nice control panel for $100 a month
Before you are making that kind of cash you will have servers, standby servers, backups systems and all the other stuff a good host needs.

Trying hard to figure out if reseller is enough for me, or if I need to step it up a level or two (at least to dedicated server or VPS). I am a web designer, but have always offered hosting for my clients. Most I design for host through me as well. My current reseller account is through HostGator, and I have 20 accounts. These are all small businesses because I do this on the side (I am a network admin at a charter school). Anyways, does TRUE reselling take huge advertising $$$? Tons of time? I am becoming more and more interested in doing this, or just going affiliate route and possibly dropping it all together... hell, possible to setup server rack in my basement and host myself?

Get a server, colocate it for 100/month and host 1,000 sites at $6month. That's $72k/yr

Reseller account is for small scale operations. To earn 70k as part of your salary you need to rent servers at least. To earn 70k as pure profit you need your own infrastructure.

Doesn't sound realistic at all.

What kind of server you have? $100/m server inclusive of all licensing costs (cpanel etc...) hosting 1000 sites with good performance?
