    It depends on the web hosting company itself, for example, HqHost.net offers to pay a commission of 5%-20% for each referred customer that buys HQHost.net services.

    There is no strict percentage.. It all really depends on who you are targetting and the niche you are involved with..

    IMO, there is a lot of potential profits in reseller hosting to be made.

    Totally agree with you. Depending on your niche the profits will vary.

    I think that it depends on your skills (especially promotional) and only in case end user support from main company.

    Reselling products on the web, and especially items related to the web hosting and domain registration can really be great and profitable.

    But, provided that you also work on your website, so that more and more new customers sign up through your website.

    To start your business from reselling is a beneficial thing. A right web hosting company must be chosen for that.
    ServerPoint.com, for example, has offered shared and dedicated servers for reselling.

    You are the only one who can tell what is worthwhile for you and what is not.
    I started as a reseller and I became "profitable" in just 4 weeks. I mean I was able to pay my reseller account fees, from the money coming in from new customers. Keep in mind that you have to support your customers, and your time costs money.

    Yes reselling is still profitable. It takes alot of time and alot of hard work but in the end it pays off. Its better to start of reselling first then move on to vps and dedicated servers.

    Reselling is profitable if you are only considering the cost of your reseller account but most people forget the other costs involved such as help desk and billing software cost, c/c processing including chargeback's etc, hardware and software costs (your PC, laptop, PDA, windows, Photoshop, FTP clients, power etc) and most importantly how much would you value you time?

    There is a lot of potential in reselling web hosting and it is particularly good for new companies just starting their business and the cost of start up is very low. However, find a good Reseller Hosting company otherwise you will end up attending to customers more than thinking about ways to grow your business.
