Will Site5 Offer A White Label Solution?

I'm currently working w/ a Wordpress hosting provider that's in beta right now and they have one pretty cool feature: you can migrate any client's site to their own billing and you'll get an affiliate commision on their payments. That would be another option, but it would require that I bill my retainer fee separately.

This requires us moving to our new backend/billing system which has been designed to allow for this setup, we hope to have all our clients in the new system by the end of year. Then we will start working on an interface for our "franchise" customers to manage there offering. I should be able to give a more accurate ETA by late January.
*The idea being you can set the markup for each plan we offer to extend to your customers.
We also are working on a managed WordPress product, and we hope to be able to roll it out in early January as it requires the new backend/billing system too.

Great Idea George! That's somthing I would be interested in as well along with Site5 hosting, I have 10 wordpress sites I have designed for clients and if they could use Site5 tech support that would just be a bonus.

Margins are pretty tight in shared hosting, so generally we won't be discounting our shared hosting plans by much. What do you guys see yourself charging for a HostBasic/Pro/Turbo on top of almost what we charge?
I'm curious as we always advocate to our resellers they should be charging more than big hosts since they bring a personal relationship + usually the design relationship. But I'd love to get some feedback on that and what you are thinking?

(Bronze) Basic $10.95 monthly
(Silver) Pro $14.95 monthly
(Gold) Turbo $19.95 monthly

Anyways, that's great news Ben - I realize it's 6+ months but I think I can tread water until then.

Well I should note, we are aiming to have the new backend launched for our brands by end of year. And then it is going to take some dev time to build the next step that would allow users to create those plans etc. But I should be able to give a real ETA early next year

If you want to play with a beta of the new platform and see it in action:
It is a freemium saas version of our platform that works with any cpanel hosting company, and any WordPress blog. This is only a week old and will have a lot more going into it over the next two quarters. The goal is to provide one place where you can manage your entire online world, and eventually make a really clean setup to bring designer/dev's clients into this system.
Let me know what you think,
