You need to decide what OS you wish to use and go from there. Control panel, Windows/linux firewall with advanced rules in place, email settings to better eliminate spam. There are a lot of things to factor in as a host before you actually make the step. Usually you will want to test out different combinations and see which one is right for you before actually comitting yourself.

u will need to setup your web server. will it using cpanel, or plesk for windows.
u will need to setup email server. using merak etc?
u will need firewall. this is not cheap. prepare thousand for this.
else else to safe your money, get a dedicated server will solve many of the cost. good luck.

First you need to decide if you want to start as a reseller or with a server of your own.
Based off this post you would probably be best starting as a reseller.
Next you need to decide on a control panel so you can find a host:
Plesk (Linux or Windows)
hSphere (Linux or Windows)
that is just naming a few, find one that works for you. Personally I prefer Plesk.
Once you have done that you "should" find yourself billing and support software. Modernbill is a good billing software (www.modernbill.com) and Kayako has a good support package (www.kayako.com).
Get your site up with these packages being resold then go from there.

Yes, a hardware firewall is probably expensive but for someone who's starting out, it's really not needed, a free APF firewall can do the job nicelyCaro.net: Speed is everything

All of these things are taken care of for you when you rent a dedicated server from a hosting provider. Thats the easiest way to do it.
