Are you going to want your servers at a datacenter you own or you that you just rend from?

I recommend a dedicated server reseller, especially if you are new to offering dedicated servers. Build up a client base with a reputable dedicated server provider, and go from there. Most dedicated resellers get discounted pricing. Eventually, when you have the capital, you can purchase your own servers and colocate them somewhere. Remember though, if you own your own servers, you not only have to administer the hardware, but provide all sorts of spare CPUs, RAM, HDDs, etc in stock. Customer's don't like waiting for parts to be shipped

Hope this post serves you well!

What do you want to know? is it about where to buy servers or how to organize the whole business?

I think the OP's purpose was to increase his post count :/ He has 8+ other "one-line" threads, all posted yesterday.

I noticed that too and I was going to reply to all of them if I could to be helpful but I got over whelmed and stopped replying. Well that and I didn't know for sure how to answer some of them.
He does look a lot like a spammer though but he could just be new to forums and has lots of questions. I have been there my self. I remember one of the first forums I was on I asked all kinds of questions before I realized it was annoying members. So now I slow down when posting question topics.

It is possible that he is just a newbie with lots of questions, but until he replies to one of these threads I am going to go ahead and make the deduction that he is spammer

A few years ago when I was new to hosting forums I managed to annoy lots of senior members with questions (WHT). The only difference was my posts were a few paragraphs and not one liners
