    Alrighty here are my top questions!

    Background:

    I'm going to save and attempt to start a web hosting business. I've thought out costs for scripts, server, maintenance and employees. I'm saving up for a few months. However I have some questions.

    Stuff I'm looking into: Hostgator's Maintained Dedicated Server, Standard Or Elite (which is the best ... getting your best server first or going with a smaller one?)

    http://www.hostgator.com/dedicated.shtml

    With RedHat.

    Questions:

    - Is hostgator good for their maintenance? I've done a few searches, but am unsure.
    - It comes with Cpanel, WHM. Is there a better billing and account creating solution I should be using?
    - Would you guys recommend Paypal for every transaction with a business account?
    - If I decided it was time for another server, how would I link servers together via automatic billing and account management? Which automatic and account management is preferred?
    - How reliable are The Planet's Datacenters?

    There might be more but that's all I can top off my head.

    Thanks,

    Dan.

    You should check hostgator reviews on webhostingtalk. I think I've read there some bad stuff about them, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Yeah, I used to have a crappy shared account, but this is my own dedicated, meaning there are no limitations -- only those of the server.

    As MMarko pointed out, these questions would be more suited to be asked over at http://webhostingtalk.com forums.

    Cpanel/WHM is not a
    It is a server control panel suited to the hosting environment.

    Scripts such as ModernBill and ClentExec are what you should be looking at for billing and account creation.
