Do you commercially host your clients' websites?

Hi,

I'm setting up a site for a client, albeit my first.  They're a small, one man operator.  

My question is, do you commercially host your client's websites and onsell the fees or do you recommend a host and have the client sign up themselves?


Given I'm also a single entity, the thought of rebilling constantly is a hassle.  I'm also concerned with on-going support for the client and what happens if I'm unavailable.

Cheers,

Rob

I never host my client's sites.  I always use commercial hosting.  Hosting is a full time job, even just the security for hosting is a full time job.  I get them to sign up with their own credit card for their domain names and hosting.

Thanks Dave, I wouldn't dream of hosting it myself. Apologies for the badly worded question, as I'm referring to commercial hosting
