I'm considering a reseller account, but even though there are demos and information on your website, I'd like to know more about how it works. For instance, if the reseller account is $35 a month, and I want to resell a basic shared hosting to my client, then do I keep all the money I get from my client, and my price is still $35 a month? I don't think this is right, but these are the kind of details I am interested in.

 

Am I limited to what I can resell? Can I resell semi-dedicated accounts?

 

Is the 25GB disk space the max disc space for all my clients combined? The basic shared hosting disk space is 5GB, so I would guess that the 25GB is just for my own use.

 

Pricing. Would I get a discount when reselling so that I could resell the same service you offer, for the same price, and still make money?

 

Do I handle all of my own technical support phone calls. I'd like to resell, but not necessarily have it branded as my own.

 

Thanks for your answers. If you have other interesting details to share, please do!

You pay us for the plan and then you can do whatever you want with it within the confines of the Terms of Service [i.e. no pornography sites, no phishing or malware, no spamming, etc]. You can bill your customers however much or little you want and give them however much or little resources you wish.

We do not currently have any semi-dedicated reseller options but, if we did, they would be substantially more expensive.

It's the total disk quota across all accounts you have under the reseller - yours included.
 

Pricing. Would I get a discount when reselling so that I could resell the same service you offer, for the same price, and still make money?

You would be reselling the space/bandwidth you're provided for the $35/month. With 25 accounts if you sold them for $5/month each you would make ~$125 [not including any overhead/transaction fees/etc]. Ultimately it's up to you - think of it like buying something from a supplier and then turning around and reselling it to an end-user/consumer.
 

Do I handle all of my own technical support phone calls. I'd like to resell, but not necessarily have it branded as my own.

As a reseller you would be the first line of support and anything you can't figure out we can assist you with so long as it's not webmastering/content - I would suggest looking at our support scope: http://www.mddhostin...upportscope.php
