There comes a time when the internet bug hits us all and we tend to acquire a wealth of domain names and web sites to feed our frenzy.
We start out with the best intentions, set up a personal home page with a few details about ourselves, then create more for our family, then our business and before we know it we have several domain names and web sites spread across several web hosting companies.
A more convenient approach would be to set yourself up with a reseller hosting account with one hosting company.
Most people assume that to have a reseller account, you need to be in the business of selling hosting. This is not true. Anyone can set up a reseller hosting account and enjoy the benefits of saving money and also having the convenience of only dealing with one company for all your hosting needs.
Now, another extension of this would be to start selling hosting to your friends, after all, you have a reseller hosting account. So if you have ten friends, ask them if they would like web hosting on your server, maybe offer it free to them and ask them to recommend your services to their friends, these can then become ‘paying’ customers. Now YOU can get people to pay for hosting and make back the monthly reseller fee.
So, with the reseller hosting account you have helped yourself, helped your friends, and possibly started making money as well.
