    Info


    hi,
    so ive looked at this from all diffrent angles,
    and to be honest not everybody joins for money making, as anybody that has tryed this will have noticed, its just as hard to start a hosting company as it would be to start any other company,

    this is what ive worked out,

    Web Hosting = overcrowded
    Reseller Hosting = overcrowded
    VPS Hosting = ???
    Domain Reselling = not even worth it, to many big companys
    Dedicated Server Reselling = Could Be Worth It, But Hard...



    So heres some plans i have come up with,
    i was wondering if anybody could advise me as to would i fail before i start....

    so im going to try and provide as much info as possible, so people could give me respected replys,
    im based in the uk,
    i have been looking around diffrent datacenters, for dedicated servers...

    i have decided to use esnet
    mainly because they fit my needs,
    but they also have everything i need.

    so heres the question i have made up 3 plans, with prices,

    please could people comment on this plans/prices,
    and tell me if you think there ok,

    i understand that people offer these kind of plans for like 5 but,
    i wont be overselling, and dont want to use unrealiable servers,
    i would rather that the servers are all running ok,

    whats to point in paying for 5 for something if its going to go down,

    i believe this comes down to a "you get what you pay for"

    please could other people leave there comments about this an get back to me???

    many thanx

    How many ve's do you plan on putting on each server and what are the servers spec? Those are the most important questions when dealing with running a VPS company.

    It doesn't look too bad, especially if you plan to provide some semi-managed support.

    What specs does your Host machine have? How do you plan to split the CPU(s) up? Any burstable CPU/Mem?
