Hi - I have looked at your Prosites plugin, and your WHMCS plugins. I would appreciate your advice on something I am planning.
Currently my idea is this - I will have a membership site for sales, but the product I will supply to each of my paid members is their own separate cPanel account inside my Hostgator Reseller account, pre installed with WP and a collection of premium plugins and themes.
The main reason I am thinking to give them their own separate account is so that it is truly their site, and it is up to them to manage it and deal with problems, not me.
However - I do see the advantages of using your plugins and simply selling them their own site, in terms of being able to manage their sites and charge them for various features, and advertsing etc.
But - weighing it all up... since I do not have an organised team for support and troubleshooting, (just outsourcing and a couple of assistants)... it still seems to me a much easier system to give members their own site, (and provide paid support), but not be responsible for what is entirely their own website.
I am not a developer, but I do have experience running my own BP site and WPMU site... and this has if anything discouraged me from wanting to manage such thing.
I would very much appreciate your feedback as to any issues I may not have considered. Or perhaps your plugins make it as problem free to manage sub sites as it would be to support external accounts ?
Any other comments on the difference between giving members their own blog on a network managed with your plugins, and giving them their own separate WP installation... would be much appreciated.
Thanks - Dan V
