    I want to start a web host company and i have no clue what i will need to run it i have look in the internet but i can not find anything.

    I know i will need a server and cPanel but how do i manage domains or do i need to use WHM?
    How do I add more domains to each account or is it only 1 domain per account i know hostmonster allows for more that 1 domain per account.

    I am also buying LPanel

    I would suggest getting a reseller account first instead of your own server so that you can get familiarity with the webhosting stuff and account management. Getting a reseller account will make you tension free from the server management as the hosting company will manage it.

    Agreed, and once you outgrow that reseller account, you can migrate those accounts to your own server. However, be forewarned that maintaining your own server is much more work than having a reseller account. Though if you have enough customers to outgrow a reseller account, then it probably would be a good investment at that time.

    With most reseller accounts you still get access to the APIs so you can still have automated billing, branding of the cPanel interface etc. People don't even need to know you're on someone else's server... or even cPanel for that fact (if you customize the interface substantially, which is easy).
