    Take a look at those hosting offers and tell me how come users don't buy them :(
    I have made discounts and special offers with free domains and stuff yet still almost no user bought hosting :S

    The plans look to be good value Shole. Where have you been promoting them? Do you have a website to promote your hosting services? Please feel free to post the URL in this thread so we can take a look at it.

    If your sales are not as good as you'd like them to be, it's most probably down to factors other than price. When purchasing hosting the primary concerns of most business or website owners will be related to uptime, reliability and the quality of the host's customer support. You will need to convince your potential customers that their site won't go down and that there will be someone available to help them, should they experience any difficulties.

    Perhaps you should focus on promoting your free hosting offer and build up a strong base of webmasters who are hosted with you. Once you have done that, you could start promoting your paid hosting offer to users of your free hosting service.

    Do you think that might work for you?

    You could also promote your hosting offers in our Free Advertising Forums and in your signature here on Business Advice Forum.

    What about making some money by selling ad space on your site?

    Why isn't it indexed yet? Is it brand new? Not being indexed yet and being brand new would explain a lot about not having sales. :) The domain name's not been banned by Google or anything, has it?

    Unlimited bandwidth and space can be abit worriesome.

    Theres is no such thing of a unlimited harddrive, edventually the drive will run out of storage space. and same thing for datatransfer, unlimited bandwidth would need a large sort of dedicated lines strictly to one private network.

    I think maybe offering Uncapped usage would be a better idea, unlimited could lose more sales then actually gain them.

    I agree. I won't even consider web hosting that's "unlimited". They usually attract the wrong type of hosting clients... from the bottom of the barrel.

    I now offer my own hosting, but I find it works best with added services, like home business incubators and training programs, affiliate programs and other practical, useful add-ons to help people get started in their own businesses. That includes low-cost marketing automation systems (integrated autoresponders, shopping cart, affiliate management, ad tracking, real-time reporting, etc).

    When you add value like this, the hosting ceases to be the main offer. You set yourself apart from your competition and become a valued resource, not just another me-too utility.
