I want to purchase a hosting service that allows me to host multiple sites with different log in. Its similar to a reseller host. I have been redirected to buying virtual hosting services from hostgator by one of their representative. If this is the way to go, do I have to know much about server administration to create multiple accounts and pointing domains to them? Or is it even possible?

Also, with Virtual hosting, that means I get databases?

I do this with a Rackspace Cloud Sites account. You can create different customer accounts and bill them through the portal. You can get MSSQL or MySQL databases, and it supports PHP, Perl, Python, ASP.NET, and I believe classic ASP.

Note that this doesn't involve root access.

wow, they are expensive. Thanks though, I'll check them out. I have my eyes on: – Shawn Mclean Oct 26 '10 at 17:25
They are designed for running a decent sized reselling operation, not a small site. They might be larger than you are looking for. – phoebus Oct 26 '10 at 17:36
