    Offering Free Hosting

    Can anyone beat this

    Well. if you have the time you can fine tune a server and mollycoddle it so it will work with a lot of sites on it. However, if you have lots of servers this becomes uneconomical. Its actually chreaper to have more servers with fewer sites. Even using dual processors (or quads as we use now)...

    Can anyone beat this

    Its not space and bandwidth thats the issue its processor usage. That amount of space could host a lot of sites. All you need is two busy bulletin boards and the server will keel over.

    Reseller hosting wanted

    I honestly think you may struggle to find that. You should look for a cheap VPS deal as they may be more suitable but you might have to increase your budget a bit.

    Why is hosting so cheap?

    I solved this problem years ago. I set upa seperate brand to do hosting which would compete with the very cheap places. We bring in as many customers through that as we lose to the cheap places from our main brand.

    Why is hosting so cheap?

    And just to add to that, I even considered dropping the price to reduce our profits and therefore reduce our tax liability this year.

    Why is hosting so cheap?

    Just a general point: The most profitable parts of our business, and the bits that are growing fastest are the cheap hosting and reseller services. We do our cheap hosting by under populating the servers to reduce the need for staff input, using cheapo servers on reasonable connections and...
