How to Start a Hosting Business – use a VPS!

  1. I did light hosting—~50-75 brochure sites, nothing complex, shared hosting, not VPS—for around a decade during the 00s, so some points based on that:

    1. You will seriously underestimate the customer service 'costs' once you have a few dozen clients—not money costs, mostly time and aggravation. Because of that, I strongly recommend you aim for a few high-value clients rather than chasing lots of low-value.

    2. As Stefan mentioned, it's a hugely competitive field—mainly because it's so easy to get into. Anyone with reasonable tech savvy can do the tech end of it, setup is very easy.
    2a. Sooo… If you want to do it as your main business, you need a clear strategy re what your USP is—that's your Unique Selling Point, the reason why customers might pick you rather than one of the tens of thousands of competitors.

    3. My view is that starting in hosting is most viable as a sideline for a related business like developing or website design. You can dip into it with 10-20 clients and see if it suits you.

    4. It's a business. Do you have business skills?
    What's your USP?
    How will you price your services?
    How will you market, ie acquire customers?
    Can you track expenses and receipts so you know how much to put away each month for taxes?
    Are you good dealing with customers? In person, on the phone, by email…
    Can you explain why a customer shouldn't pick one of the heavily marketed site builder apps?
    Etc etc.

    Best of luck!
