Well, first of all you should consider your business type whether it is small business or large business and what types of contents you will allow to host under your hosting accounts.

Now a days, every company is providing linux based web hosting that is much better than windows hosting and also needs low budget to start web hosting with linux OS.

To start small business we consider 100 accounts on a VPS that wil be hosted on it. For this a server should have following specifications.

Server Specification:

  • A VPS (OpenVZ or XEN)
  • 1 GB Minimum RAM
  • 100 GB Minimum Hard disk
  • 1000 TB Bandwidth in some cases it can be 500 GB for low traffic web sites.
  • cPanel/WHM control panel
  • Fantastico or Softaculous
  • 2 IPs Minimum
  • CentOS 5+
The above VPS would cost you about $50 USd or $60 USD per month.


Where to buy:

It is important to have web hosting control panel installed on the server in order to provide the web hosting accounts. I would suggest you to do not go for any other control panel as the cPanel/WHM is most leading web hosting control panel and it is reliable. You will get free 24/7 support from cPanel staff.
The above specifications are for small business web hosting provider, Now you are ready to start your web hosting business.
