Isabella, It depends on what stakes you are playing.. Most poker players follow a strict bankroll management of having atleast 20 buyins for a cash game.. So if you want to play 10cents 20 cents blinds your buy in would be 100times the Big Blind so 20 dollars.. so you should have 400 dollars in your online poker again. This sounds absurd amount of money but if you want to give yourself the b est chance to not go broke and to give yourself room for bad luck and ugly down swings then you should give yourself atleast 20 buy ins. Hope this asnwers your question.
