Hello!

Don't forget to offer security and technical support, these are always important and required.

This is kind of hard to answer as I don't know what your client base is or anything about what your server limits are. They are many pro and cons to offering unlimited hosting but I would start with fixed storage limits based on how much space you have to give. Also i feel like you are just starting out and would recommend you read up on how to start a web hosting company and how to maintain it. just do a good old google search.

Impossible to answer that question as it depends entirely on your infrastructure and business plan. You can't complete with the big boys on price, so you pretty much have to have a unique selling proposition.

Agree with others here / there is no rules to what you offer / and as others have stated depends on what you have to offer in regards to your infrastructure etc... There are thousands of hosting providers out there including the big guys / best case is study the forums / here on HT and WHT are some good ones. See what others are offering the marketing forums. It really does depend on your marketing. The challenge is coming up with your secret sauce and how best to present your solution to your target market.

I would start out with just offering shared hosting and work up from there.

All the best of success with your new venture!

Dave

We can't really answer this question for you because of a number of factors not given.

For example we do not know how much money you need at the end of the month to make ends meet and be able to cover your business and personal bills. Your best bet would be to sit down with a spread sheet and work up the numbers yourself.

Unlimited is not that good to offer as sometimes it may just attract the abusers and scare away the true people who don't abuse the service.

Offer three different shared hosting plans you have to make them work and might have to change them up from time to time if you don't see any sales come in on them.

For disk space and bandwidth I wouldn't offer unlimited there but for addon domains , emails etc those you can give unlimited if you feel the need to.

As for the pricing its all up to you and how much you have to come up with at the end of the day to keep the services up and running. You need to price your plans out smart so that at the end of the day you aren't coming out of pocket so you can host the next person site.


Check the offers forum here on HD and other forums to see what others offer for what price and go from there.

Shared Hosting comes up with limited scope as one environment is shared between many users. so giving unlimited resources will be at risk with respect to server monitoring and efficiency goes down.

On other hand VPS would be the good option.

You do, of course, realize that a big part of running a hosting provider is running a hosting provider... You know - the part where you make decisions.

That said - what are you planning on doing or offering that is going to make you stand out from all of the other thousands of 'providers' that start every month? How are you going to stand out in such a saturated market against the big players?

I'm not putting you down - but you should have at least some idea of what you want to do and how you want to do it without somebody else having to tell you how.

only you can say what you want to offer as

1) We have no idea on what servers you have and what resources you have on each server.

2) We have no idea of your overheads

3) We have no idea of your target market


best option is to offer no more than 3 shared plans and 3 reseller plans.

even if you offer VPS and dedicated servers then just list about 3 or 4 on your site.

The servers i am using are 2.9GHz Xeon CPU 6 Cores with 11gb ram and SSD-powered each server has 512gb of disk space.

I will try to do hard research to see what are the best resources and price to offer.

Thanks

The price you charge is going to be the one that works for your business and keeps you paying the bills every month. That's really all you need to know. Nobody can give you advice on what to charge there.

so say you pay $100 a month for the server and you want to give users a 100GB plan and dont want to oversell then just to cover the server cost alone you would need to charge $20 as you could only place 5 plans on the server, but more than likely you would only get 4 x 100GB plans on the server as space would be taken up by system files etc., so now you would have to change $25 just to cover the server, so by the time you add the costs of control panels etc, and wages you would need to charge $50 at least

Unlimited space, bandwidth, mysql databases and subdomains is something very popular these days. But you have to monitor everything carefully.
