I am asked to collect some information about the requirements that are needed to start ASP hosting?
I've searched the internet but there is no information about hardware requirements?
Any information will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

ASP or ASP.NET? There's a difference.
Hardware is whatever is required to run Windows, there is no special requirement because you want to host an ASP.NET application. See Microsoft's site for hardware recommendations for various versions of Windows, as well as SQL Server if you'll be using

What were you asked? Just hosting of a website in Classic ASP or ASP.net.
All you need is a windows machine and IIS installed in it.
Clarify your exact requirements.

Sorry that I wasn't exact enough.
Thus "my company" wants to start also asp.net hosting for his clients and they asked me to make a research and collect information
about the exact requirements. They already have a windows 2008 server and IIS installed on it.

If you have to run a hosting company.. it is very long to path to learn. webservers, mailservers, database servers, backup servers...and more
on the other hand, if you just want to host couple of clients website or even may be 100, you can get a reseller hosting and achieve the same.
Either you have buy a reseller hosting and host your clients site(your client will have access to the control panel).. or you can buy a VPS and host all your clients site.
hope this helps

In hosting yourself approach you should provide 24x7 services - including internet access (it will be good to have backup line), hardware and software (OS, database licenses) maintenance, customer support etc... It will be much better to find good reseller hosting

Licensed for hosting?
There's a large gap between running a hosting company and hosting a web site on your own server. Microsoft has plenty of resources, take a look at Webspark for a good start and look at the Microsoft Hosting Community for more resources.
