Talking I Need Test Subjects :)

Sounds a bit dodgy that title hahaha


I'm considering setting up commercial web hosting but for just now I'm offering people the chance to test out the service so I can decide whether or not to go for it commercially.

I'm offering free webhosting with the following features:
  • Disk space - (500MB)
    Data transfer - (5000MB)
    Max email accounts - (3)
    Max FTP Accounts - (3)
    Max Databases - (3)
    Max daily unique visitors limit - (10000)
    MySQL Connection Hourly Limit - (25000)
    Mailbox Max Size - (50)
    Max Sub Domains - (3)
    Max Parked Domains - (3)
    Max Addon domains - (3)
    Max Cron Jobs - (5)

and before I get into trouble because I'm not sure if i can post links of my own websites on here or not I will ask you to PM me for the website link if you are interested.

The website is a working progress but I'll be happy to try and answer any questions you may have beforehand.

I do work nightshift at the moment so if there may be a bit of a delay before I respond to an queries but I will do my utmost to get back to you as quick as I can

Thanks very much.

What sort of customer are you hoping to target with this offering? Businesses or web developers?

As you've put technical specs, I'd doubt that most small businesses would understand if they just wanted their website hosting. Web developers are likely to have hosting sorted already.

Web hosting is a saturated market and there are some very big players that offer web hosting for next to nothing so I'd be suprised if you'd get any decent returns.

I'd try to find some niche or offering that isn't common.

Send me a PM, I'm interested =) Doing this as a business means as much automation as possible, or be a slave to putting out fires.

What niche are you into? What type of online (or offline) business you are targeting to?
