    Today i was searching for reseller hosting business related stuff I have checked almost all big brands reseller hosting plans. But all of them offer maximum 250 Gb Disk space not unlimited. There is small profit margin according to my calculations. Today all people go for unlimited plans. So i am bit confused Is there any solution so I can get unlimited disk space etc for selling hosting ?

    the unlimited doesn't' exist, just search on providers TOS and you will see their definition of 'unlimited'

    Alot of places offer unlimited as mentioned above Hostwinds is one of them, but trust me nothing is unlimited. If you start hogging up all the space with big traffic websites they will ask you to leave or move to a dedicated server.
    Also i thought about doing the whole host reselling business but with the support you have to provide and constantly have to stay on top of things for your clients i dont see how its worth it. Plus to much competition...

    WE have actually just finished our White Label Reseller Module, and we are looking for Closed Beta Testers

    This module will allow you to install our module on your website, which we will gladly help you setup and provide you with templates. Once setup, you can reseller any of our existing products, charging whatever you want for them, furthermore, you will get larger discoutns based on the number of products you have.


    If possible add me on skype, we would love to give you the opportunity to beta test the module, the best part is there is 0 overhead/investment/support knowledge required on your part. We take care of everything :)

    I have a reseller account in the UK and use it in a different way. When I build a website for a client i include 1 years hosting free on an unlimited plan. The following year if they want to keep it I charge them 100 + tax

    if you can go for a year and do 5 websites per month the residual income is very good, then the following year more, and more until you earn enough from renewals that you can retire ( one day :) )

    I love hostwinds. Would definitely suggest them to anyone. I relaly love how when you get a DMCA they don't just delete your site. They warn you first.

    Also uptime is great and it does feel unlimited to me.

    As for starting a reseller business, the competition is so insane. You know how sometimes there are niches that arent even worth your time unless you have lots of $$ to invest? I think hosting is one of those niches.

    We would say unlimited is Myth or marketing gimmick.
    Shared or reseller servers have a limit on cpu or memory used so you cannot call it unlimited
    IN any host you reach some 50GB disk space usage you are bound to get a notice

    Would be difficult to be profitable as just an internet based reseller hosting business but if you do web design, it's a great thing to bolt on and they'll probably go with you even if you are twice the price of the competition because you'll take care of it all, you already have trust and it's all so cheap anyway.

    Even though we offer reseller as well, I won't lie when I say it's not a good area to go into.

    Gaining a good reputation to sell hosting is a very hard market to get into. There are thousands upon thousands of hosts that a person can choose, so unless you can somehow stand out, OR have a specific niche you are going into, I'd say be careful.
