Hi Dear Friends,
Friends my question is related to business. I want to do a web based business in which there will be lesser investment, having over 50000 clients and I shall charge them money on monthly basis through credit card transaction, means you can say that it is a home based business. I shall hire a web hosting service and a domain for it.
Waiting for your reply.
bye
Noman Iqbal.

Although everybody talks of global village etc doing the business is heavily dependent on location where that business is carried out.Doing the business on web is no exception.Where are you located?

Porn. It's an $8 billion/year industry.
If, however, you have any moral conflicts or legal conflicts with this, there are probably 8 billion different businesses you can do from home on the web. Maybe you could narrow down your question a bit to something that interests you.

Dear Friend,
Yes there is a conflict with this business, please suggest any other business which is related to I.T. A business that I have in mind is making my own search engine. Do you have any other business in mind. And yes one more thing can you please give me an idea that how much $ I can demand from my customers on per month basis from my customers, and how much customers will be there in it I think there will be more than 50000 customers I should have each month.

Hey, you can combine these and make porn music ring tones!
Seriously, you can charge $50,000 a month if you provide each member with a free Mercedes every month or $.01 if it is a tooth pick of the month club!!

This thread reminds me of a classic South Park episode...
Phase 1: Steal Underpants
Phase 2: ... ?
Phase 3: Profit

In fairness, remember that there are cultural difference among JavaRanchers. Those in the US might balk at someone asking for business ideas, although at the same time, people have made millions of dollars from business plans involving "work from home," "stuff envelopes," and helping transfer large sums of cash from Nigeria (I never said it was the people who answered these calls for work who made money :-p ).
In other countries, entrapenuership is not so common. People may have ideas, but don't pursue them for a number of reasons, and so are happy to give away ideas.
Heck, here's one. Look at Friendster and start a local version.
But serious, I also recommend porn. It drives many new industries and technologies. If the issue is personal, well, someone else will capitalize on your qualms. If the issue is cultural, don't fret it, the most pious often turn out to be the most sexually deviant.
