I'm looking for a good 'reseller' account and had pretty much decided on going with TCH but have been doing some reading in the forums here and now am a bit confused. Let me post exactly what I want to do and make sure it's ok!
First, I have a small design business I'm just starting out with. I own the domain "cowgirlexpressions.com"... Second, I own the domain "runninghorses.net" which is a community website for horse folks... (my main clients are members of the horse community). I want a reseller account for 2 reasons. Number one because I want to offer website hosting WITH my design business. So that way my clients can just 'sign on the dotted line' so to speak and they have an ENTIRE website with no banner ads or anything else from any other hosting companies. They can ALSO then log into their acct (via ftp or control panel) to make updates if they chose to go that route (as opposed to paying me an hourly rate to do basic updates for them).
Now here's where I start getting confused. I want to be able to offer two types of hosting... their own domain name (which I understand has to be purchased) OR having a subdomain of my site. So if I had a client called Red Brick Ranch, they could then have their site at redbrickranch.runninghorses.net -- Would I have to register my reseller account AS Runninghorses.net in order to be able to set up my subdomains that way? Or could I register as Cowgirl Expressions? I'm sorry I'm so confused...
With the reseller account, either way, I want to have one large account that I have for my 3 personal websites, first the Runninghorses.net site, then the Cowgirl Expressions site, and finally a personal site about my farm and horses. The third one I wouldn't mind if it was a subdomain, but the second one I would want to be accessible by typing cowgirlexpressions.com ... Will this be possible?
Also, I saw in my readings something about not allowing the hosting of friends sites on your subdomain for free? So if I offered a contest on my website for a free website package (just design), I couldn't put them at contestwinner.runninghorses.net??
I hope someone can clear some of this up for me...
Thanks and sorry for being a pain.
