    That will be covered in that Business Plan you're writing.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    What is so funny about that. It seems like a good deal to me. I have seem some people ask more for less and less for more.

    Funny that he would recommend a plan, without knowing anything about the person's business or plan. Never mind.

    Don't take this personal, but if you're asking your competition what your product should be then you don't need to be in this particular business.

    Think of it this way. When Pepsi started do you think they went to Coke and said what products should we offer and what should we should charge for them?

    lol you should really sit down and think hard, your plans are for you alone to think up really. Base them on how much you want to earn per server, based on the server costs & specifications. Make sure you don't oversell, its a i big problem these days.

    Go looking for Dedicated Servers running whatever Server OS you're confortable with. I recommend ThePlanet or ServerMatrix. 1200gb/month bandwidth from SM, and 2000gb/month or more from ThePlanet.

    With a TotalControl series server from ThePlanet you'll have more than enough space and bandwidth to host many sites reliably.

    Good luck!
