Let's imagine that someone approaches you and asks, "I want to get into the proxy niche. Where do I begin?" What would you tell them? I mean, obviously you need to get a domain name, hosting and a script - but what kind of domain name? .info? co.cc? Hosting... regular shared hosting won't work, so what should they look for? What about a script, what kind is the fastest? Most efficient?

You see what I'm saying? People that are new to the proxy niche might feel a bit overwhelmed with a lot of the options and avenues available. So what advice and/or tips would you offer someone?
