It’s now possible to own a hosting company without setting up an office. Hosting company business is one of the most profitable businesses in the world and few people try this unique venture.
Everyday more than 10,000 websites are created. For these websites to exist, they must be hosted somewhere. Though there are top companies like Bluehost which control hosting business, these companies won’t host every other website due to their expensive hosting plans. A new entrant with fairly cheap hosting services will win some clients.
Many people think it’s only when you have a physical office you can own a web hosting company, this is not the case. Companies like Bluehost and Liquidweb have Reseller plans where you are allowed to buy a plan and distribute resources to your clients. A single plan in Bluehost can cost you $300 per year but this same plan will yield you up to $2,000 for hosting several websites.
