    Partner for a LLC Delaware company for VPS hosting

    Hi,

    I am Italian an I have formed a Delaware company for web hosting. I would like to sell VPS. I have found a very good datacenter in Germany, already tested and I think that I can offer a good service. The European market, expecially in Italy, the market is less saturated the in the USA. So I Think is a good place to start. I hope that I will offer VPSs from US, and other crucial places, such as Singapore, Australia...

    The main problem is jsut that I cannot use a US payment system, because I am a non US resident. I am going to get a personal US checking account, but I cannot use US Paypal and I cannot use my Italian Paypal account for a US company.

    So I think that I need a US citizen, willing to get into the VPS hosting business, so I need someone that wnat to join my US comapany, open a business account, open a professional Paypal account and start to sell VPSs.

    I am near to be ready to start, I just need a way to sell like any common business in the US.

    Where I can ask to a partnership in webhostingtalk?

    Thanks.

    Why not just create an Italian company and register your PayPal account that way? In Italian Paypal account can still bill in USD.

    I do not like to have an italian company

    The equivalent of a LLC is called SRL. It costs a lot of money and it has a lot of burocracy involved. It is antieconomical. I have an option to work with a friend near me but he is too busy an he has an unlimited liability company.

    US company has less burocracy and is less expanesive. I have to mention the time involved to deal with all crazy italian laws and burocracy.

    I know one italian has opened a LLC company in Delaware with other people, from US and another one form EU. They have internatinal customers because they speak 3 languages and they know different markets.

    I would like to see if I still have a possibility to avoid Italy.

    You're going to need to go a lot more into your business plan specifics, detailing what roles you and the partner will be doing, initial capital investments involved, distribution of assets/profits and such... if by "partner" you mean part owner in the business.

    If I will have a partner he will join the company, holding a part of the shares. The percentage depends on the involvment. I think we must first know each other and try to collaborate. Then we will see how to define everything.

    I think this sounds like a bad idea. Since you won't actually know the person you're partnering with, they could burn you in the end.

    You can try contacting a law firm that specializes in corporate law and who can create and dissolve companies. Perhaps they can point you in the right direction.
