Web Developers can be successful Web Hosting resellers!
U r right
By becoming a reseller, not only can web developers create websites for
their clients, but they can provide their clients web hosting, as
another studio service. All you need to become a reseller, is to find a web
host who: offers multiple website hosting accounts; along with reseller
services; and then its up to you to host your clients’ web sites from
your own account. Your clients will be happy with the low fees you can
offer; and, you will have yourself a very profitable side business.
I think the most important is to ensure you sign up with a good and reliable web host yourself. Coz to resell web host is a responsibility. Someone trusted you before they part money to join your host.
If you really aim to be a successful reseller. Draw up a good business plan. Analyze the external (SWOT + Porter Five) and internal (Porter Value Chain) environment. Formulates the Corporate, Business and Functional strategies.
In this way, it is easy to keep track of your business directions and goal.
