Its better to start with a reseller account and be sure to pick a fast, reliable and reputed host providing true support and services. Here you can learn and simultaneously expand your business and as your expertise and experience grows move on to managed or unmanaged dedicated servers.

One word of advice is go local. Target people in your area and set realistic prices. People will happily pay a premium for being able to speak to someone face to face

Yes it would be much better if you start with reseller account.Check the reputation of the company, support which they are offering you, number of years they have been in this business.

Hi,
You could start with a reseller account from a good webhost and go from there. As you get more clients you can go from reseller-VPS-Dedicated-Colocation.

It will be hard to get clients in the beginning. Setup billing/helpdesk software as well as a decent looking website. Do not get a template from templatemonster.com as too many exist already and you will simply look like everyone else.

In addition, make sure to get your company licensed. There are many other factors however this will just help to get you move.
