Great story! Just do it!
Good luck to you!
how much do you charge for hosting to your clients?
Congrats! Very inspiring as I am getting into this right now myself. In the process of setting up some demo sites and portfolio of previous customers.
How are you getting paid?
People pay you by paypal or cash, and then you pay the hosting? Or they directly pay the hosting?
This is awesome...
How much development do you do to the websites?
Do you include any content development, quick reply boses, search boxes or any refinements? Or do you just give them a basic website with a graphic header and let the customers fill in the blanks?
Great post thanks!
I have a question though, how does this whole reseller thing work?
I have my own Baby Account with GoDaddy and I can put as many domains on that as I want. Whats difference between this and a reseller programme?
Also, how do your clients pay you? Paypal? Cash? Cheque?
One more thing, how much do you pay for your reseller hosting package every month?
@natewex- on godaddy im guessing you have an account where you can just add domains... hostgator works by allowing you to create multiple accounts for users and have your own "reselling business" in effect. so instead of someone signing up through hostgator they sign up through you. you can usually pay for your reseller account with a credit card and maybe paypal (not sure)
Sounds like it's about time I learned how to design websites! lol
Good luck btw
boy you people as so many questions
Ah yeah you're right, its actually hostgator Im using!
So what you're saying is they sign up through an affiliate link (your hostgator aff link) and you get paid by hostgator monthly (rather than the client) - is that it?
congrats and please keep us updated as you continue.
For those already doing this: do u find that clients want many changes usually, and do u charge them if it's a major amount of work?
a hostgator reseller and hostgator affiliate are two different things. you can do this method using either depending on whether you want to shell out the money for the reseller account. type in google "hostgator affiliate" and you will find all the info you need
Nice work man! I love reading the success story's at BHW
