I started from purchasing a server for my own software, then I realized that there are a lot of hosts out there that want to rip people off so I chose to build a hosting company that focused on core values and not on making investors happy.
The hosting provider takes care of the whole installation, leaving you only to define your blog's name and where it should be installed. Setting up a blog has never been easier and with a hosting account customized for your blogging needs you'll have all you need to start a great blog.
Started in 2001 as a reseller, didn't plan on making much doing it but a friend of mine was running the company and asked me to resell. Few years later I had hundreds of customers. Now I'm starting my second hosting company and hoping it will do well.
Just advertising where I can to who I can and hope they talk about us to their people and it just spreads to a small network of people whom use you. As long as you run your service well, people will stay!
I was started web hosting business 5 years ago. Basically I am a web designer and developer. Many of my clients wants a complete website solutions with domain + hosting + emails + website then I decided to purchase my own reseller hosting account. Now I am satisfied to provide all services to my clients.
For the start see how the market is, how you competitors are breathing. Make a business plan. Make sure you have some money on the side because for the first X months for sure you will have losses.
Start with a small reseller account. Try to provide the best support and uptime for your clients.
