    There is no step by step guide. Same way there is no step by step guide on creating any business. Otherwise everyone will be doing the same thing..

    Your best resource is to read through this section of the forum mainly and gather information..

    If there were such a guide, it would be huge, it's steps would depend on many things: your initial budget, your target market or niche, your personal strengths, weaknesses, experiences, knowledge of the industry and so on.

    Yes if only there were a subforum with a plethora of tutorials guides and articles covering a myriad of subjects related to organizing and establishing a webhosting company.

    Patron: I'd like my free lunch please.
    Cafe Manager: Free lunch? Did you read the fine print stating it was an April Fool's joke.
    Patron: I read the same way I listen, I ignore the parts I don't agree with. I'm suing you for false advertising.
    Cafe Owner: Is our lawyer still working pro bono?

    Start

    You can always start with a shared account and jsut set up a reseller once someone decides to order from you. These days, the basic shared and reseller acounts are cheap.
