    I think it depends on what type of content you have on those sites. You can contact their live support and ask them questions

    I'd say go for a reseller account. That way you get a cpanel for each domain you put on there and you can see in one which accounts are close to limits etc in one place. Thats what I do...

    PM me and I'll send you my affiliate link lol...

    Or get the unlimited package, seeing as it's cheaper and you get unlimited bandwidth/space according to HG.

    hostgator is so over priced, your better off with other solutions imho, but thats just my opinion, I'd personaly hook up an aff account with a good hosting company that gives you free hosting, or a real discount for buying your own accounts.

    interested to see what others say though :p

    I'd say go with the reseller account, but getting on a good server is another story. I've got several of my sites not getting crawled properly and has errors robots.txt unreachable...

    I've also seen that (maybe?) hostgator limits apache processes, I am not getting traffic as much as normally I have. I think when you have reached more than 20K UV/day, you should move your high traffic sites to VPS or DS.

    Anyway, very good services but if you have a problem with security, you should be patient because I think that they don't have enough staffs on that.

    Darn, I've got the $25 package before the black friday promotion.

    Offer free web designing in your local newspaper. Throw wordpress on them and give people the sign in info for them to do what they want. That way they can add their own stuff...
    You could do 100 of these in a day if you wanted, especially with cpanel.

    Then charge $20 a month for their site. And tell them you can add up to 3 sites for an addition $5 or so.

    If you put this in the local paper, you'll probally get at least $100 responses each time.

    =$2000 dollars a month.

    Do it 5 times over 3 months, in the end you'll then be making 10k a month...


    You could always higher someone to take care of customer support or outsource it. I just deal with most of that via email.

    Anyone see any flaws here?
