I think this might be a sortof stupid buisness, but are there companies out there looking to team up with other people who want to sell shared web hosting? Example:
Company A owns Company B
Signing a contract with Company B is actually signing a contract with Company A.
As far as I'm aware, you need to be 18 in every state in the United States to be legally binded to a contract. An LLC is just another type of corporation, you don't need to be any age to open a company in any state; however, to sign contracts you need to be 18 to be binded to them or you'll need an adult co-signer.
I'm not sure as far as the legality goes, but if I'm not mistaken, as a business, you can engage into contracts under your business name and be legally binded, as the law justifies that if you're old enough to manage a business, you're old enough to realize your decisions and their effects.
I'm not entirely sure, but I think that's how it goes.
There's nothing wrong with running a business underage, just understand that you really don't have any legal bindings. So this is risky for you, and for your customers. When I first got into the industry I was under 18 (gosh has it really been that long? haha) and I actually had my father sign my contracts and he was "legally" the business owner. Once I turned 18 we just transferred everything to me.
If you don't have that opportunity then it would be in your best interest to consult an attorney based on your situation.
Yeah partnerships can be rough, especially at such a young age. Please don't take offense to this at all as it's not meant to be that way but at that age you just have so many changes left in life (personally) that your goals and desires will change probably several times within the next 5 years. Your partner may do the same thing and once those agreements are formed you both have to agree upon changes and a lot of the time that is where the problems occur.
There are plenty of successful partnership's but it's much, much harder at such a young age. And rightfully so!
