Firstly, you got to make your advertisement look attractive. If you pay a sum of money but your ads don't look "pretty" enough, customers will not be bothered to even glance at it. Facebook is relatively a good social platform to advertise, why not try posting on forums like this? The more the merrier. OR as what people had mentioned above, word of mouth through your existing customer. That is the most effective way to grab hold of more customers.

Can you suggest me a good way to advertise our website?
Thank you very much

At the end of the day, word of mouth is going to be your best sales driver. But in order to get there, you need to hustle. Why not re-target your Facebook ads to your immediate local market with that kind of promotion/promise and see how it does. Although I don't have much confidence in Facebook at all when it comes to web hosting sales.
Concur with Artashes as going local is the way to jump start your business, BUT it seems since your site is offline right now, maybe the test failed.

never had much luck with facebook or adwords to attract customers.

I find what works for me is about twice a year i will run a special promotion on ebay which attracts customers and i have enough anti fraud and security systems in place to weed out any fraud orders.

I personally have had a lot of luck just using social media venues for promotion but I as update my site frequently with how to's and articles. I am thinking about trying some YouTube videos as well.

Hello! I was thinking of going for the "Facebook/Google ads" route but it seems like this is not a viable advertising solution yet (especially for a starter like me).

How do you advertise your promotions? Do you have certain rules in crafting your promotions? Thank you for sharing your ideas, guys

It's very good to go local. Also talk to your friends, maybe they know someone who needs a hosting.

best attractive tools for customers is "fair price" actually first factor that customers check is price and comparing your prices with other hosting companies, these days there are a lot of options and usually people choose those companies with low prices

I gave Facebook Ads a shot and really haven't seen a difference. I think I need to invest more into them before I see something noticeable though.
