I have a server in which I would like to provide a free blogging service. The general gist is that I lack experience and would like to provide a free service to learn more about server management and other things related to it.
My service provider has a partnership program. As far as I understand, I can trade those donations for extending/upgrading my server plan. My service provider even stated in their Wiki that they will take care of all the organizational and financial issues.
It seems like a good idea to give some sort of reward for donating users. By doing so, more users might donate. But at that point it would seem like I'd be selling some extra functionality and etc. for users depending on the sum they donated.
I do not have an organisation nor a business registered nor do I belong to one. Can this become a legal issue? I don't actually receive the money nor can I cash it out. My service provider deals with the taxes and all I can do with those donations is to invest them in my project's hosting and nothing else.
