Well find a reseller host for yourself with good space and features, initially you could go for a small plan and then shift on to bigger..
Reseller Plans - advantage you
# With less management and monitoring of server - this host will do that for your.
# Also there will be technical support and assistance from the host on the server side issues and installation /upgradation
# You just have to pay and go live with minimum knowledge of assigning of plans to your clients
--- All what is needed is to sale your products.
When you find a host check for Private name servers (ie. ns1.yourcomanydomain.com) this will give you good branding options. Check for their support.
Thats it your could go live in a minute.. once you find one
I would suggest you to stay in web development, it will be much easier to sell your services and generate invoke. In order to be competitive in the web hosting industry you need to spend a lot of money on infrastructure, support, sales & marketing.
To start a web hosting business you should start by buying a reseller plan that best suits your requirement and budget. The hosting provider that you select should be reliable. There are many other features you can consider like uptime, security, data backup and add-on option while choosing the right host . Reseller hosting plans offered should be flexible that can be upgrade/downgrade according to one's need. Hosting provider that you select should provide 24/7 customer support and should not delay in replying to your mail/queries. You can then design your own website and web hosting packages as you want.
Reseller hosting is a good way to enter into a business as it needs very low investment.
