    This would be a dream of mine, and I am sure others of you have a similar dream too. I am sure some of our bhw brothers and sisters have done this or are trying doing this now. I would greatly appreciated your links and advice, etc from those that are on the right track in doing this.

    Basically the hosting company I am referring to would entail using someone elses servers, perhaps I would be a reseller or lease their servers unbeknownst to my clients... I will also need a turnkey website that accepts the credit cards and automates the hosting process to give them their own Cpanel ,etc. I do not want to get a commission a a reseller for another copany. I am referring to accepting payments under my company and the money funnels directly through to my merchant account to my bank account.

    Thank you so much for your replies in advance.

    IMHO it's not a good business to get into but to each his own.

    This site has a lot of info you will find helpful:

    Be sure to check out the various offers threads and how cheap they are, the businesses seem to last 4-6 months before folding because there are no profits at those prices.
