Best way on starting a web hosting business and make it grow?

Have currently started with a reseller.
Also, do you know any good and cheap billing systems?
Also, if you know any good sites for getting customers for my site, please let me know.

Chosen Answer:

The cost of acquiring customers would certainly be higher than whatever profit you could expect from your hosting business, for a new or small player.
You will need to find a niche and specialize there instead of going to the general market where you face mamooths who can afford spending millions for advertisement and have an established customer base.
Hope it helps,
Pat

    Web hosting is practically worthless these days, with the GLUT of providers currently out there… unless you plan on SERIOUSLY undercutting the competition, you might want to look at expanding your services to include other things.

    I’m currently with a provider that I’m paying $12.99 a *YEAR* for service with (a five-year commitment). That works out to a little more than $1 per month.

    Not worth your time,
    the barriers to market entry make competition for market share unrealistic.
