    Just to clarify, are you looking to provide web hosting services or are you looking to get your own websites hosted?

    I'm assuming he just wants his website hosted - you should always try to find reviews of the webhost and do some reviews. But other than that, can't really tell you without knowing what exactly you are trying to do. Specific questions would help though, your statement is kinda broad

    Well to host your first site depends on the content.
    Are you starting a Blog or a Forum ???
    Well to start your first website I think you should know a little bit of File Management and some PHP+MySQL

    First you need a domain name, which you can buy from places like NameCheap and Enom. Then you will need a basic shared hosting package to host your new website. I don't see how you can call it a business, unless you intend to start a hosting company.

    Use some form of a CMS (Joomla, WordPress, SMF, etc) and it should be pretty straight forward. If you can ask any specific questions I am sure you will get more specific/better answers.

    1. What type of website are you planning to create? - Blog, forum, etc
    2. How are you going to run your website? Is it going to be hand-coded or will you be using a content management tool such WordPress?
    3. With the answer to the above, what are your server requirements? Php/MySQL/others, and what versions thereof? The answer to this will be your basis in looking for a web host.
    4. Are you willing to pay for a domain?
    5. Are you willing to pay for hosting or would you just like to have it hosted with a free service?

    These are five basic things you need to answer if you plan to have a website.
