Or ...

A webcam/laptop or a movie camera with IP-protocol is the minimum hardware you need locally. Ask your hosting partner what software he recommends to install on your site; maybe he has a standard package already.

I'm the one who's gonna host the site, there's no partner,
the streaming services should be a part of the services.
But you can see, I don;t know nothing.

I see.

You want to make and host your sites (and later from your customers). Of course you must start with your own sites to be sure everything works flawlessly. You won't get any customers if you can't show how good it works for your own sites.

Then I'd start simple and gradually built it up. For example:
- First build a simple static site (text and pictures) that you can view on your own PC.
- Then move it to an in-house server.
- Then connect the server to Internet and get domains so you can view your site from the outside.
- Then add a Control Panel and support for, say, php and mySQL.
- Then build a simple dynamic site using those new tools.
- Then open that site for the world also.
- Then implement ftp so that you (and your future customers) can upload things from the Internet.
- Then upgrade with video's. This will require more hardware and a faster connection to the web than a site with only text and pics.
- Then get some customers because it will be quite costly by that time.
- Only then start thinking about live streaming.

Best of luck with your new service.
