<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Want to make money in the web hosting industry? The best way to start a web hosting business (if you a re a beginner) is by getting a reseller account with an established web hosting company. </font>

<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">For the Beginner, you really don't want to start spending a lot of money on getting your business off the ground and you dont have a lot of time to learn everything about the business. Web hosting companies have made it very easy for you to start your own web hosting company. They ususally will have a couple of different plans to choose from, either a very simple plan where you would just sell their existing plans, while they give you a discount or a more advanced plan where you will be a Private Label Reseller. This means that your customers will never know that you are a reseller. It's perfect! They host you customers, handle all the server aspects of it, you just have to handle your customers and run the business. Let the web hosting companies worry about your server, downtime, etc. You can concentrate on getting more people to your site and selling plans. Also, you can make up your own plans if you want, this way you have full control over the plan features and pricing. Some web hosting companies even handle support calls for you. If they do not, there are a few companies that you can outsource your support and sales calls to. Your web hosting company should be happy to send you to the right place.</font>

<font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">The biggest key for you as a reseller is branding your website and customer service.

Word of mouth is very powerful and the way to get that is with great customer service. Whether its by helping someone set up an account, answering a technical question or just doing something nice for your customers, unexpectingly. Give them a month for free, get them special deals from companies you have partnered with, anything that shows you care about them and their success on the web. Remember that you are only as successful as your clients and your clients are your number on priority. Rememebr these tips and you can become a top tier web hosting company and not just another Reseller.</font>
