I am not sure, but I guess you have a register a corporation with your state (in the U.S. it is called Inc., other countries it might be AG, Ltd. etc.) Most of it depends on your state.

hmmmm I dont think so? (not for the UK at least?) you have to buy licenses for cpanel and so on...? you'll probably have to register your company to an address (here you do?) but other than that?

In the UK, you have to register your company with Companies House.

To use cPanel you need a cPanel license for your server.

I think this answers your question.

Just for information, in the UK you only have to register at companies house if you are going to be a limited company, but if you are having a web hosting company in the UK it is doubtful you will want to become registered, leads to a lot of extra paperwork etc, although it also has it's advantages. If you want more information, contact my business brain through PM.

Another condition of a company becoming limited that I remember is that it has £50,000 capital, and that is quite a lot :P

In the US, you can form a company in a few hours if you so desire. No paperwork is needed. However ... if you wish to become a legal entity, you'll at least need to go to your Chamber of Commerce. For corporations (why a single entity company wants to be a corporation is beyond me as the taxes and liabilities far outweight the benefits AFAICS), you'll need to register appropriately.

You know, I got taught it in business management at school, so the chances are that it is outdated info, but thought i'd post it anyway! Maybe that is a condition of a plc?

So, did you ever start the company? If you have found more information, please do share it with us (might be helpful in future, not that I am interested starting a hosting business). Knowledge is never bad.

The large sum of money of for a Public limited company.

To be a Limited company needs no money only assets like offices (or trading premises).
