I DON'T THINK SO!!
As a business (registered or not), you have to comply with current legislation.
But if you are doing anything that is generating an income then you have to declare this as earnings.
In the UK you need to do this as a minimum
1) register with the HMRC for tax purposes
2) register with ico.gov.uk under DPA if you store personal details on a computer or manual files.
3) open a business account ( more and more wholesalers require this)
points 1 and 2 are the important and legal requirements
I think you might have missed his point
Hosting can be a risky business, say you host a particular site and for whatever reason it goes down, either costing money with the downtime or being lost entirely, this client then attempts to sue (whatever is in you T&C) the being LLC or LTD, any compensation the client has will be from the company, if you are a sole trader then the financial penaltys could be from your saving, your home, etc.
Also point 3 isn't necessary
