Any suggestions? I am looking for name ideas, there aren't many out there because there are a lot of hosts. Also, how much do you think my plans should be? Stuff like that.

How about using an animals name or some kind of mascot? As far as your plans it really depends on how much you are spending, so you can adjust to make sure you cover that and get some profit out of it.

I agree with Anti, the only real way you can set your prices is to budget your hosting business and come up with the right plan prices.

Thanks for the tips guys. I can't really tell you how much money I am putting into it, so I will come up with the plans myself.

It is really important to pick a good name when you start out so i would do a bunch of research on hosting on yahoo and see what other hosting businesses are called and research Keywords because they will help you get Free traffic to your site. GOOD LUCK *Meekin*

The more money you put down on it; the more you should receive back. But it all depends on how much knowledge you have upon Hosting and business.

My suggestion to you is consider the SEO part ( if your URL contain one of your main keyword, it will reduce the time you need to spend to get your website to page one.

Maybe even start something "niche hosting", so you don't need to complete with the 1.000.000 other web hosting sites out there.
This can be anything really, such as:

"Wordpress Blog Hosting"
"Adult Hosting"
"Hosting + free support"
"Hosting + free customized template" (use wordpress)

Etc. A lot of ways to make a web hosting company stand out :)
