I'm registered as an LLC, but I had it this way before I started doing hosting/reselling. I started out making baby slings and needed to protect my personal assets if I ever got sued.

If people were to answer honestly I'm guessing that the majority of "hosting companies" that visit hosting forums would be answering unregistered.
Blue, that is not the best way to do things are you totally exposed and risk is great

in Canada you need to spend the $600 and incorporate and separate yourself from any risk - that goes the same for the US or anywhere really

We are registered as a finnish Ltd, that is pretty much similar to UK's Ltd. IMHO if you are running a business you should always be registered and a $100 start up costs for LLC shouldn't be a deal breaker if you are serious about your business.
