    I pay about $150 per month for VPS on http://mediatemple.net/webhosting/vps/hosting/

    I charge $10-$15 per month for simple websites and $30 per month for clients who host some content heavy sites such as Magento (those are very resource hungry).

    Thx for the answer! Do you charge extra for emails? Any limits on webspace, databases or transfer? What about data backup and restoring and access to cPanel/Plesk?

    Emails – I give it for free. This is a good selling point for me. Some hostings charge for email addresses, and in a few cases clients migrated to me just because of unlimited email addresses.

    I do give access to cPanels, no limits on database or transfer. I have about 20 clients hosting on my machine so I monitor the hosting use and when one of the sites is abusing the resources, I contact the client to discuss. However, for sites which would abuse the data transfer or space (large ecommerce mainly) I always suggest the client to have their own dedicated VPS (~$50 per month). That being said – I try to host only very small sites.

    You should have an affiliate account with your favorite hosting (I like wiredtree and MT, for more demanding sites I like Rackspace and AWS), so you can earn referral fees.

    For backups, I use whatever plesk or cpanel provides (with backing it up on an external AWS webspace). I use codeguard.com for more demanding clients.
