Module 10: Selling Web Hosting

Introduction:

Passive income refers to money you earn from services that do not require you to actively do anything to earn.  Reselling hosting to other clients is referred to passive income because once the site is launched you do not generally have to do anything extra.

When you purchase a hosting account and resell this service to clients for an additional sum, you can end up earning quite good recurring, passive income on a monthly or annual basis.

Participating in an affiliate program with a hosting company can also help you earn passive income without needing to setup or manage hosting directly for clients.
