Starting a web hosting business?

Question by gingerpaul99: Starting a web hosting business?
I would like to start a web hosting company, i know its not a get rich quick scheme but i am willing to invest in it. First of all i am thinking of getting WHMCS http://whmcs.com but is it any good?

And if i do buy this can i use it on my hosting plan if i buy re-seller hosting or do i need my own server?

Also is there anything else i need to consider before starting this company?

Thanks

Well, you should have a lawyer on retainer and an accountant. Business tax laws can be tricky, and it’s probably best to leave that up to a professional so you don’t get slapped with and hurt by an audit.

If you have your own server, you should be certain you have a good uplink to the Internet. If possible, it’s best to have multiple egress connections to different NSPs to ensure fault tolerance.
