Lots of great suggestions above. I would be careful with the eBay suggestion. Even though it may get traction, there's too many ads where people are selling hosting and the stars for a penny. Not the place you want to compete.

Plenty of good hosts use ebay now, yes you have the kiddie hosts with unlimited everything reseller plans for $2 a year, but a more people become more tech savvy, less of these are listed as people see through them for what they are.

Well, I wouldn't bother with Adwords that's for sure. That's best for bigger companies who have a massive marketing budget. I'd stick to using forums, at least to start with, and try to get a lot of referrals by promoting your affiliate program. That will help a lot.

I have found that NICHE marketing is great especially forums, also try to offer products that most people dont offer for example 10gbps VPS there isnt many people offering those. do research and explore the possibilities I have gained my best clients through becoming friends on skype and not only talking business but by showing that i care about them and that they arent just a client.

Referrals work best I think. Ask your current customers if they know anyone who would need your services. Oh, and it's free!

Social media and forums are a good way to advertise in most cases free. If you have the space try reaching out to gamers/communitys and try for a sponsorship.

I would also suggest offering a free plan to clients. Most of them will grow and upgrade in the future. Tho watch out you might find abusers.

You may continue with forum posting. Do give Bing ads a try. Its way cheaper than google ads and there are so may people who have been successful in making good sales with it.

Give some awesome offers over Facebook like 60% discount on every Wednesday if hosting is paid for more than one year or so. This works good for me so try it.

Best Of Luck.

For starters just keep posting and try facebook ad's. they won't bring you customers but it will bring traffic and it will help your brand grow and to be recognized.
