    Just wanted to get some information on reseller hosting.

    So if I sign up:
    1. Do I make my own website showing different packages?
    2. When they click to sign up, does it forward them to the web host i signed up with or is that blocked and only my logo is shown?
    3. DO i set up all of thier hosting my self once they sign up of or is that typically automatic?
    4. Am i responsible for the things they host. For example, if they host p0rn or copyrighted info, is it my responsibility to keep checking the things they host or is the web host gonna keep track of that.
    5.When they need support, will I be providing that or will they be directed to the web host?

    i kno its quite alot im asking but i cant find this info on the few web hosts im looking at so i just wanted to be clear before i sign up.

    1. Do I make my own website showing different packages?
    Yes you will have to design your own web site. You can use a free templates that are out on the web. example
    Code:

    2. When they click to sign up, does it forward them to the web host i signed up with or is that blocked and only my logo is shown?
    No this will be on your web site. They will not know that you are a reseller unless they look up your IP address and see that they are under another company.
    3. DO i set up all of thier hosting my self once they sign up of or is that typically automatic?
    Yes you set up all the hosting accounts. Most reseller hosting accounts use cpanel and WHMCS. When you install WHMCS and attache it to your hosting account it will give you the codes to put into your site to have people sign up on.
    4. Am i responsible for the things they host. For example, if they host p0rn or copyrighted info, is it my responsibility to keep checking the things they host or is the web host gonna keep track of that.
    Yes I would set up your T&C just like your host company.
    5.When they need support, will I be providing that or will they be directed to the web host?
    You will be doing the support. Most of the time they are easy question. Then if you are not able to answer them you will be able to ask the company that you are getting the hosting from


    As far as reseller hosting I like
    Code:

    i used them before I started doing my own hosting.

    Hope this helps
