As I start to get requests from friends and family to build websites, I’m thinking that maybe getting a Reseller Hosting account is probably a good idea. The last few times, I’ve had them purchase their own domain/hosting, but since I’m the one ultimately managing their sites, it probably makes more sense to buy a larger space/bandwidth and carve away portions for others. That way, I also have all accounts under the same management umbrella, which would make it a LOT easier to handle everything. Simple is the key.
And they can always pay me back in cooked meals and babysitting for the kids 🙂
