Step 5 Purchase and set up your Reseller hosting account
Some hosting companies charge a set-up fee to help do the set up (for clients not very technically inclined) Sometimes it’s advised to let the hosting company do the setup for you, unless you’re very sure of what you’re doing. The slightest mistake can ruin your hardwork. at Hostpaddy.com we do the setup free for our clients that purchase any of our packages. This is to save cost, and avoid prevent avoidable errors that could ruin the setup process, and in effect waste of time and resources.

Any single mistake could lead to misconfiguration and loss of clients’ resources. You know what that can do to your reputation as a business man/.woman. It’s advisable to keep a back-up before doing any major operations on the server. so that errors can be undone , by virtue of the backup.
