    Why start out with all those at once? I'd think it's best to pick 1 or 2 services and focus on them, then once you get them down and get some solid reviews expand outward. For reseller packages you can use a master reseller account, VPS, or dedicated server. Do you need managed or unmanaged servers? It sounds to me like you need to do some more reading and re-evaluate your plan of action.

    If you will be just a reseller for unmanaged VPS and dedicated servers you don't need to know a lot while if you will offer a managed service you must know what you are doing or you will lose your customers.

    As mentioned, it wouldn't be such a great idea to start out with a VPS/Dedicated unless you are well-versed with some technical knowledge. Most people usually start off with a reseller packages for the following reasons:

    1. It has a much lower cost than running a VPS/Dedicated

    2. Even though it is lower cost, you are getting more features to
    offer your clients. This can include auto-installers, backups, etc.

    3. Some hosts provide end-user support which can prove helpful if you do not have prior knowledge of hosting. Even if the host does not provide end-user support, you can always pass on the question that your client is asking you. Basically you are assured of some form of assistance which is great since you are just starting out.

    Yep as mentioned above. Starting VPS and/or Dedicated server business is serious decision. It requires much more knowledge than reseller hosting needs. Without great preparation starting such a business will be very difficult and I could say that even impossible.
    Try to gain knowledge about it or stay with reselling

    Yes, its a nice idea. Starting all at once with no experience and knowledge is very risky business. Better start one by one.
