research research research, but you do need money, even if you just start with a reseller, you need money to advertise

Servers in Basement? lol

Starting as a reseller is good especially if you don't have to provide the support. It gives you time to work on getting customers and working the customer service front. Also gives you time to learn up on the industry.

Business plans are not set in stone, you learn as you go and reading up on business laws and tax benefits and other situations will also help. You need to be able to adjust as you go in order to make things work.

Yes, I think reselling hosting service is a good start, and it really is a profitable business as long as you know what you are doing. After being successful as a hosting reseller, I don't think you would want to start your own hosting company.

i dont understand this as if your business is a success while reselling someone elses services then then next expansion if your business is to get your own server. as as you are reselling someone elses services then you are already running your own hosting business.

It's good to start your own webhosting business as reseller because you do not have to invest anything for server, staff, etc. and with the low cost you can start your own business.
