Hi, I would like to start a web host for a small niche.
I don't expect much competition or all that many users.
But I still would like to proceed with it.
I would like to offer 3-4 hosting packages (including a free one with ads)
I don't have much experiance in this field, but I do have some PHP skills.
I would like to find a scriptt hat automates most of the proccess though.
WHat scripts should I look into?
Do some research. There are a lot of them around and they all have different levels of features and complexity. Modernbill, Client Exec, and WHM Autopilot are a few examples. Do some research though. You need to look at each one and decide which is best for you.
You can get iPanel which can create free accounts with forced ads, allow the free accounts to upgrade to paid accounts and get ads taken off. For full features go to: http://www.ihostdev.com/ipanel.html . Also you can get 20% off a lifetime license if you enter "ipanel25" into the coupon section.
What platform are you looking to offer? Windows, linux!!!
Have you looked at becoming reseller account? it might save you headaches.
