Hi
First looking at your website

1) You need a professional looking logo
2) if you have no clients then i take it 'what clients say' comments are not relating you your services, so if that's the case remove them as no one likes fake reviews
3) Remove the 'Write a Review on 24HostKS' form as its not needed and can be replaced with a simple text link to a separate page
4) on your about us page The youtube video about different hairstyles is not needed
5) in then about us page If you dont have clients also remove 'Proudly Hosting Over 1,000 Websites Since 2019' as it is false info.
6) Make sure all your footer links to the correct page
7) create a terms of service and privacy policy page
8) i would also get your WHMCS integrated with your website as it looks more professional as at the moment it does not look that was an no way for anyone to get back to your website.
9) Create some sort of knowledgebase

See, just looking at your website and the SSL products you should add the price by year not monthly, because in checkout looks another price (annually). For me the most important thing is to not lie to your customers. Always a happy customer will bring more customers. Hope this helps.

First, let me explain it's going to take time for you to grow. Rome was not built overnight.

How are you telling people about your new business?
Are you advertising?
Do you have a business plan?
Why did you start the business?

Here is the thing, I started my hosting business in September of this year. Which is not that long ago. However, I have grown somewhat and its because I followed what I was told by the wonderful people here at HD.

You really need to be patient and do all you can without spending alot of money.

That is only part of it, they need to make sure what they state on their website is true as people will research hosts and especially when it comes to testimonials as i did a quick search and found many instances of the names listed in the testimonials on his site using different pics, but same comments.

Proudly Hosting Over 1,000 Websites Since 2019
Remove that ASAP.
Remove the hosting advice review stuff

I can't tell you how pissed off I got just reading that 1,000 websites line - especially since you just opened the doors.

If you take nothing else away with you, DO NOT LIE.

You state an uptime guarantee that you stand behind, but you don't list what that is. (should link to it)

Terms of service & privacy policy are not linked
Contact page is completely different than the rest of the site.

There's some work to do to build trust on the account. The page design is clean, but you'll need to build some real trust for someone to hand over money.

https://whois.domaintools.com/24hostks.host

so just 15 days.

also hiding whois information turns people away as they dont know where you are actually based

I thought under the UK law hiding the contact information wasn't possible - maybe that's been reversed. I know in years passed you couldn't enable protection on it.

I think the there has been a change due to GDPR, nominet have removed personal information.
We don't hide it though, it's on every invoice.

with nominet if you were using a domain to make money then you have to show your details, but since GDPR in the EU/UK then they say they cannot display personal details

There are many other issues you won't hear of until your account has already been activated and your credit card billed.

This thread can be closed now, hes already out of business.

Because of people like him, it makes actual businesses harder to run, we have to try harder than godaddy to earn their trust.

Thank god he had no clients.

Follow this. Very good. Also seems your website is not opening some how. Is you business down? This type of business takes time you have to wait and be patient.
