I need suggestion as I am looking to start a new host.
1) What hardware should I use? Or should I use either re-seller hosting or rent out a dedicated machine?
1a) If I should use a dedicated machine, any recommendations on what host?
2) What should I use for DDoS protection?
3) If you have any other suggestion for starting a hosting company, please reply with them.
Best advice would be.. don't. The community is already overloaded with kids trying to run businesses. The last thing people need is another person without experience or apparently even a business plan trying to sell services.
