I suppose starting off with a reseller account would be the best and safest option for you since you dont have much of an experience with hosting. Starting a hosting business with a reseller account is recommended when you have absolutely no server experience or you are not very tech savvy, so the general advice would be to learn with a reseller plan, build up your client base, make a few contacts, get sound knowledge about servers and then think about moving on.

thanks for the quick response.. and for welcoming here - hope this place would be like home :O

well i have hosted few websites with free-hosts here and there but i really dont go back to them since i am using it to learn...and they are not all that [what they promise] i came across irishost somewhere on the forum and tried to see what it is like and wasnt all that moved..but im still looking to learn more...about it though

i dont mind a reseller package and im looking for where i can compare packages...

Well let me tell you, comparision between packages can be choosy and could become difficult task at times because there are million companies out there.

So do make a wise decision.

To start a web hosting business you should start by buying a reseller plan that best suits your requirement and budget. The hosting provider that you select should be reliable. There are many other features you can consider like uptime, security, data backup and add-on option while choosing the right host . Reseller hosting plans offered should be flexible that can be upgrade/downgrade according to one's need. Hosting provider that you select should provide 24/7 customer support and should not delay in replying to your mail/queries. You can then design your own website and web hosting packages as you want.

Reseller hosting is a good way to enter into a business as it needs very low investment.
