Question by : Anyone know about web site hosting?
I would like to start a SMALL web design business where I intend to buy hosting for maybe 10 or 20 websites for customers that won’t have a need to have their own Control Panel. Most hosting sites seem to have pretty cheap hosting plans where you can host “Unlimited Domains”. It sounds like this would be all I need, as long as I didn’t need each website “owner” to be able to have their own control panel, because I think there would be one Primary domain (my web design company’s domain) and all the other websites I host would be “add-ons”.
At least this is what Host Gator told me.
Assuming you understand what I’m looking to do, do you agree that one of these cheaper hosting plans that off hosting for unlimited domains would be all I need (usually they are about 5 – 8 dollars per month)?
And if anyone could elaborate on exactly what “addons” are, that would be great. I just need to make sure that if one of my customers has the domain www.theirwebsite.com and it’s one of these “addons” in my hosting account, they will still be able to get to the website by typing “www.theirwebsite.com” into any web browser. I’m a little fuzzy on the downside of “addons” (if any)

With cPanel, some hosting packages from certain web hosts give you the ability to host what’s called “Addon domains” which means that you host the domain whatever.com for whoever, but your domain is still yourdomain.com. If that doesn’t make sense, go here: http://www.2serveu.net/cpanel-tutorials/addondomain.html
Your user whom owns the domain whatever.com would be able to get ftp access.
I can offer you hosting and unlimited addon domains. http://www.celestial-nocturne.net/order
There are a lot of other companies that could offer you the same too. 🙂
