I'm not sure I follow. You had a hosting company, and sold it, and are now starting a new hosting company. Was that permitted under your terms of sale - if so, good for you, but usually people sign non-compete etc.

None the less, it appears you're looking for new clients now, and need to know how to get them? Yet you've had a hosting company before and sold them? Couldn't you repeat the same tasks that you had done with your other hosting company that you sold?

I'm with Conor on this - seems you already knew how to attract customers with knwebhosting. If you shared how you attracted those customers, maybe we could offer something new to the table - that you haven't thought of already.

It seems that running a web hosting company these days has definitely got hotter and more difficult than doing the same task a few years ago, therefore your newly launched website may need some serious assistance in terms of advertising and marketing to experience ranks or web traffic shares.

You may seriously consider to make use of direct advertising packages because getting organic web ranks in hot niches and markets like web hosting may sound a bit complicated these days as your domain would be up against hundreds of portals heavily promoted through formulas like SEO, advertising and PPC units.

In my opinion that would be better to keep old web site and use 301 redirect. Now you will need to do everything from very beginning.

i think Sponsoring web sites is another great method to get customers. Find an active site on a free host or someone who doesn't have the money to pay for hosting and trade them hosting for the promotion of your site. Even better, host a local community web site in order to find local customers. Local customers are willing to pay more for hosting and usually require less tech support.

Yes i do agree with you, in the industry you have to give benefits to other people before you can have your benefits. It is like a mutual relationship that bith parties benefits from each other.

i think you have to market it on internet. dont worry about how you might get clients, at first you have to wait. but if your service is excellent enough, customers will be the first to go near you.

Have a patience in attracting the clients to your new web sites. If you provide quality services, you will have them a lot.

I think first you will have to make a site so that people will take a look.
This is important especially if you want clients.
Otherwise ... what is the difference between the 2 domains?
