You can make money from any business if your business becomes successful and web hosting business is not an exception. But, it is not an easy industry and it requires good business planning, hard work, patience, etc.
There are many informative and helpful books about running web hosting business that you can read and learn from.

You just have to be special in some way, and put your message out there to win customers and better than your competitors. In the web hosting business patience is key.

why resell hosting when you can join hosting companies and promote their plans as an affiliate? After all you get paid up to $70 dollars per sale as an affiliate.

I started reselling hosting a long time ago because I was hosting all my web design clients on a shared hosting package from go daddy. Upgraded to a reseller package and started charging each customer for hosting, grew very quickly from there!
Edit - This was years ago before Host Little was an idea. HL runs on many VM's and a few dedicated servers now. Reselling is still a good way to start tho!

Web hosting business is too crowded and have extreme competition. If you have the resources and money than you can go for it. But Remember you have to provide quality customer services and good servers to build a trust among your buyers as it is only the way to get successful in hosting industry.Check out my blog @ Technobyet.com

Yes, you can make a lot of money by having your own web hosting company. Having said that keep in mind that the hosting business is a very hard market to break into. But once you get established you can start watching the money roll in.

I did some research into the possibilities of reselling web hosting not long ago and based on everything that I read and found in my research, this is a very hard business to get into and make good money at.
There is so much competition in the web hosting market and the profits are just so low compared to other business ventures that it is just so much work to try to be a success, or at least a big enough success to make decent money at it.
You have to do a lot of marketing, promoting and work just to try to gather enough customers to make it worth your while money wise.
The cost of PPC advertising for web hosting services is also expensive so you need a big budget for that or just have to spend a lot of time around other site doing your marketing and customer searching.
The good thing is that if you wanted to try you could always start small and see what happens without having to invest a large amount of money.
Personally, I would find an easier way to make money but it's something that others may want to try.

There are two options for earning from selling hosting initially. You can purchase a reseller hosting plan from a decent company and start your own web hosting company and second one is affiliation. If you are willing to involve yourself in hosting business, you have to learn first how everything works in web hosting and how the market in going on. Forums are great to teach you. So first of all start learning. Good luck

With my experience I used to do re-seller hosting plan but the owner took all my clients from me and I was left out of pocket and lost around 40 clients so be careful which company you go with as this could happen to you.

Reseller Hosting is a good business know a days but it is not the way to get easy money. Become a reseller is not a easy task you must have some technical knowledge as well as you must give best service to the customer. Check Reseller plan of companies who give best service to the customer.

Reseller Hosting is not the easy way to earn money. Too much competition over there at the hosting market. You have to completely depend on the Social Media Websites for promoting your hosting service.

Everyone needs an online space so you'd do well in this market. The issues will come with people who cancel their service or want to for a variety of reasons. Your rules and FAQ must be crystal clear. So they can understand what type of contract they're entering into. Also don't gouge customers by raising prices once they've signed on with you. It'll surely result in a bad rep and bad reviews for your company. Lastly, your TOS must be made clear also. People who use hosting sometimes have malicious intentions. They sell illegal products, or use their online space to launch hacking and malware attacks. If your hosting site is tagged as a haven for these people, you'll get shut down by the big boys, and larger problems could arise as well. Legal ones.

Sure, you can make profit by reselling hosting. If you promote you service by social media (Facebook, Twitter and ets...) and something else. Everyone needs an online space. Dont forget create an account on hosting forums.
