Web hosting is not a way to quickly/easily earn money.

Can you make money selling web hosting?
Yes

Does it take a lot of time and effort?
Also yes.

You cannot simply get a reseller account, put up a webpage, and expect customers to start knocking down your door. You have to have a plan. A solid business plan.

Sure, you can earn money with web hosting service. You can either share it as shared web hosting service or reseller web hosting service. Just make sure that you will have the correct web hosting plans and security on the server.

Star sale from the small web hosting plans so you will get idea about how to earn profit from it.

There are plenty of web hosting companies are out there who are offering affiliate programs and pay you generous amount of commission per sale you deliver to them. Just join their affiliate program and promote them to earn huge commission. Some of the most popular web hosting affiliate program is Buehost, Hostgator, Dreamhost etc.

I will go with this idea instead of developing a new hosting company and earning money with it?
Why?
Because to maintain a web hosting company, it will costly you more as you need a team for supporting customers, managing servers, marketing your websites...etc. So, it is easier to ear4ning from web hosting is you need to have a decent site/blog with huge traffic and offering affiliate programs from hosting companies.

I agree with @vishwa, the best way to earn money from web hosting is resell web hosting plans from big hosting companies that offering you high commissions, this will work if you are not a web hosting provider but the need is you need a blog/website with decent traffic to earn from affiliate programs.

Yes you can earn money from web hosting but it's not easy, margins are low and competition is very high.

Don't expect to pull in customers straight away. It may take a year before you start to make money back, so be prepared to pay the expenses for a year incase you are not able to find new customers.

If you have less funds, you could start as an affiliate and as you gain revenue, invest into a reseller package.

Web hosting is not a get rich quick scheme.
It takes a lot of work and time before you start making a profit.
If you are interested in hosting, it is perhaps one that can be started with a small capital.
If you do start, start small, get a re-seller plan (one you can afford to run, even if you have no customers), ideally in a location close to you, then see if you can get sales from local businesses. Lots of small business out there, that want a website but don't have the know-how/confidence to do it. That's where you come in.
Then work your way up from there.

Alternative as people have mentioned above, affiliate marketing is lucrative.
Good luck

You could also go down the reseller route which is what a lot of people who want to get into web hosting do.

It requires less investment. But I would recommend you gain some knowledge first and build up some funds by starting with affiliate marketing.

Hello Geoffrey095 that is also my question why I join this forum, and I would like to learn exactly how this forums works and how you can earn money from this. However we all know that there is no easy way of earning money so I guess this forum was really made for us to learn first and if we are capable enough we can earn money from this. And we all know also that there is no easy way to earn money.

Thank you! and looking forward for your future experiences here and future earning .

PS I am also a newbie here for about 2-3 days old. Thank you

What an interesting question, with really useful answers.
Definitely, whatever route you choose, learning is inevitable. Also, the initial investment is needed (starting from the time investment in the first place).
But, do not get discouraged. There are plenty of people out there earning from web hosting. Either as an affiliate or in any other scenario, take time to learn as much as you can about the technology and the industry itself!
The more you know, the better. Start with something simple and build from there, that's our 2 cents.

Hi @Geoffrey095! I was about to ask the same, I guess we're on the same boat but reading through all the replies, I would have to agree that being an web host is not easy, same with being a reseller. We must go to the bottom stage first and learn every bits of information we need to be able to understand this environment (one of the reasons we I joined this forum). And to tell you, I am quite learning a lot by just visiting different forums in the site.
