    Help.

    I have been searching everywhere on how to start up Webhosting/Dedicated Server/Virtual Servers hosting business. Basically my boss has offered me a job of working solely on this project. We already have a rack at one of the colocation facility in London. We also have a few servers lying around hence the thought of trying this venture.

    Could anyone please guide me the right way of starting up this business. And the requirements I need(Especially software requirements).

    Thanks in advance.

    Abdul, it is a very big task. Pretty easy to setup a basic infrastructure, the challenge is in the up-keep (security, reliability, performance distribution, data redundancy, etc.. etc...). Then customer service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
