I´d like to put up a website to showcase my portfolio in design and programming, but I would also like to use the site to sell my skills and design and host web sites for customers. Does that make me a reseller? Is host reselling the option I should look for?
I would appreciate recommendations for which provider to sign up with, I need to publish sites using anything from Drupal to flat file html.

  1. That depends.

    Reseller account: Get this if your clients want access to their own control panel, have their own set of settings, and do this kind of stuff themselves.

    Regular account: If your clients are mostly small business owners who aren’t technically inclined, you’ll probably be the one to do maintenance for them. In this case you won’t need a reseller account. A regular account would be better since it’s more affordable.

    I recommend http://webspacehq.net/ — they offer both regular and reseller accounts. You get unlimited add-on domains, so even if you choose a regular account, you could add and configure your clients’ domains very easily for no extra charge.

  2. hi
    Now a days most webmasters are using IP because less expensive and reliable service
    Good luck………

  3. Why don’t you start your own website which you can promote online. You can check the web hosting from iPage. They provide fast servers which can load your database fast. iPage database operates at its maximum speed, because this web hosting provider knows how to keep up high speed servers. http://www.webhostingbreak.com/ipage-ecommerce/

    Yes, definitely a reseller. You can host sites under your subdomain ie “www.theirsite.youurl.com”. By the way if you decided to go for it, I highly recommend Hosting24 although there are lots of good web hosts out there. Cheers mate! 🙂
