    I know its hard and all that, but I have something else in mind with it. A target market that a lot of people don't go after and all that, and its fairly big-- but nonetheless...

    I am totally clueless about webhosting.

    So in order for me to 'start my own company' I need to go to like.. HostGator and buy a Reseller account?

    But they are like $99/mnth for 200gb of diskscape .. that is not that much.. is it?

    Thats like.. 200 people having 1gb of space lol.. or am I math is wrong or Im thinking something wrong?
