Starting a Hosting Service for Minecraft Pocket Edition
I would like some advice on how to start a small for-hobby hosting service.
Since Minecraft Pocket Edition is a relatively new market, I am coding my own CP out of PHP(Symfony, with a REST Daemon), and plan to use BoxBilling, or Stripe as the billing system. I have coded a Multicraft extension for MCPE, but Multicraft costs too much to start hosting with low budget.
I have experience in running Linux(Ubuntu Server, to be more precise) and have a dedicated server with Proxmox VE running multiple VMs for me and some friends.
The problem is, I have absolutely no idea how to deal with businesses, and being a minor, have no idea about dealing with money, taxes etc. I also have no idea about the software used in the hosting business, and the redundancy needed for a machine to be considered good enough for hosting.
Also, would a RAID(10) be a requirement for running such a service? Or could I make do with just an SSD?
