to acquire a wealth of domain names and web sites to feed our
We start out with the best intentions, set up a personal home
page with a few details about ourselves, then create more for our

A more convenient approach would be to set yourself up with a
reseller account with one hosting company.
Most people assume that to have a reseller account, you need to
be in the business of selling hosting. This is not true. Anyone
can set up a reseller account and enjoy the benefits of saving
money and also having the convenience of only dealing with one
company for all your hosting needs.
I'll take my hosting reseller www.HostingRevolution.com">http://www.HostingRevolution.com as
an example. They provide a very competitive reseller account

Previously I had over ten domain names and associated web sites

Now, another extension of this would be to start selling hosting
to your friends, after all, you have a reseller account. So if
you have ten friends, ask them if they would like web hosting on
your server, maybe offer it free to them and ask them to
recommend your services to their friends, these can then become
"paying" customers. Now YOU can get people to pay for hosting and
make back the monthly reseller fee. Just sell ten accounts for $3
a month and you have instant income of $30 to offset the $35
reseller fee you are paying. So you get hosting for $5 a month
for as many domains and sites as you like.
So, with the reseller account you have helped yourself, helped
your friends, and possibly started making money as well.
