but if i sell like a cert or something i am only a kid and dont really have the money... like i will be screwed if someone is paying for a domain and a year of hosting, i would lose a ton of money.... could i file some kind of complaint through my business?
i feel that getting expeirience in the business is a good idea.... i could file Tradename Registration with the state of vermont, i dont believe there is an age restriction... and if there is then i can do it through my dad... i already know web design and make money with that.... i could customize a template, add Whois.Cart and have all the money go to a credit card my dad sets up... i could buy all the shiz with my dad... template, web space (ddi hosting), interspire's active kb for support, demodemo tutorials, hostvoice advertising and some google..., and i already built a new computer for my "to be" hosting biz... i don't have to worry about taxes beause there are none for hosting... (i think). Therefore i see no reason not to start a hosting business as a teenager, i could put away 10% of profits for college...
i got the new computer so that i can efficiently respond to my clients questions and needs and keep the company site running smoothly, i would have had to do all that on a old dell infested wit alot of virus... pentium III 450 mhz 256 mb ram and cd drive... ugh
DemoDemo tutorials that cover cpanel (control panel for shared hosting), WHM (web host manager, control panel for reseller hosting) - includes extra $20.00 to rid the "created by demodemo.com" in the last few frames: $ 149.95
before i get started i am gonna have enough cash to fall back on to just in case... i already wrote my tos, i am gonna get a freinds dad to review it for me. oh yea... im not gonna be payin $8.00 per domain, $5.00.
We almost had a $700 chargeback last week - luckily the guy who had his CC # stolen contacted us, as our name and phone # ended up with a $700 charge on his bill, so we refunded the money ourselves. We shut down the server, and never heard back from the scammer. We resold the server, and it's going to take a few months to recoup the money lost on the server, but luckily we pay for our server bills with a PayPal debit card that gives us 1.5% cashback, as that'll help cover the refund.

... that's if you make money. Client's don't grow on tree's. Likewise, I would advise reading up on DDIHosting.Com before purchasing an account there. While I don't have any first hand experiences here, I've heard numerous complaints about them.
