    First off, long time lurker here at these forums. After months of reading, and making a few $ here and there on adsense, I've decided to try my luck at starting up a little home-based company that will offer hosting services.

    I plan to offer *Free* website creation (ie, 4-5 page sites using WP or the like), while charging only for the hosting service. Thinking I can charge around $15/month for the hosting.. depending on the business or the person.

    Number One Question: Which Hosting company would you recommend for a reseller account? I was thinking about signing up with HostGator. Input?

    man, i wish you good luck, although not sure what to say about the price... I think you will have a hard time selling your hosting for $15 / month as the competitiveness in this niche is quite big and there are a lot of hostings out there much cheaper....but again, good luck, trying never hurts.. ;)
