I'm starting a little web development company mainly using rails, but we've also got clients with existing joomla and php code.
How do people generally package hosting into web development quotes? Is it usually a pass-through cost, or is it common to charge an additional fee?
Also, since we do want to outsource the hosting, but we realise there'll most often be some configuration and maintenance to do, we're wondering how the hosting account is generally managed by development firms? Does each customer have a master account, or are there setups that allow some sort of hierarchy?
