    What hosting would I need?
    Ok,
    So I am starting up an online business. It will be selling subscriptions and I am going to go wild and say that I expect 25000 subscriptions in the first year - starting from scratch.

    Why not think big.

    My question is, what sort of hosting do I require?

    Can I start out on shared (reseller) hosting and when the need arises move up to ...?

    Please help me fill in the blanks I am really curious about what is best way for start up to .... start.

    What bandwidth, storage I would need etc.

    Cheers

    Hi MooPoo,

    When you say "subscriptions", are you referring to you selling web hosting services to customers? If so, the best place to start is a plan that allows you to create individual cPanel accounts (like a reseller or multi account plan), and then work your way up to a VPS and above.

    25,000 is a big number and I wish you all the best in achieving that.

    No, it is nothing to do with webhosting at all.

    But every client will get their own client area with a couple of widgets so I guess that might take up some space.

    Right! In that case, you could just start off with a basic web hosting service with any provider who uses cPanel. That way, you don't need to invest a lot of money during your build and test phase, and then you can quickly and easily move it to another service or web host who might offer a higher level of service for more money.

    There's no point spending a tonne of money on hosting while you are building and testing. Many people set up servers in their home or office for this purpose but if you can't then a reasonably prices web hosting service with cPanel is what I would be doing.

    My question is what platform are you developing your subscriptions on, this will denote the required platform required for hosting.

    Ie webserver, database, language etc no point using cPanel if your developing in .ASP
