Why should one get into providing support to web hosting customers and managing Shared Accounts, if he/she wants to have an online business? It makes sense for someone get a Reseller account and to put some websites on if one is a web designer. But why should one get into Reseller hosting, if there is other business to run?

I don't think that reseller business is webdesigners' business type and only to host clients' websites, but it is a good start for anyone willing to come to the hosting industry.
Of course one can ask question why to support somebody's shared accounts when they both doing the same business, but the fact is that there're some great hosting providers actively supporting their reseller clients by providing to them end-user support system, valuable information and how-to guides in the reseller hosting business etc.
I think the success of you as a hosting company, mostly depends how do you care about your client, how do you support them in their steps to the success.

The problem with reseller is always support,
you can't give a value support because you don't control the server system.

IMHO for a small business it will be OK, but for larger services you should have your data center.

A reseller hosting business is good for those who wants to run hosting as secondary business. If you want to run hosting as primary business, you better to get a dedicated server or may vps server.
