I want to go into business for myself offering server space, but I'm not sure how to get started...?
I'm fairly new to business, but I want to go into business for myself. The company I'm with now works with a kid who is only 19 years old and went into business for himself offering server space and now makes enough that it's self-supporting.

One thing I DO know is I need to build up capital, but I'm fairly young (22 years old) and I don't think my credit is decent enough to apply for loans. However, before I even consider raising capital for this venture, I'm not sure how I would even get started.

Do I just purchase up servers and a high bandwidth? Do I need to start buying up domain names? Is this something I could do out of home or should I lease a facility? I was thinking of purchasing one of those pre-built barn-type buildings and insulating it myself and converting that into an office at home.

I guess a side question would be what are some good books to read on the subjects of small business and networking/servers? Should I focus on Windows or Linux servers? HELP!!

It doesn't take alot of money at all to get started.
Go with Host Gator.
http://www.hostgator.com

You can start selling server space for only $24.95 monthly.
Can host 25--100 sites depending on how much space your providing.

As your client base grows, then you can purchase additional servers. Their awesome been using them for years,.
