    Your Cheap Price Drives your Laziness?

    I always believe that MODEST and REALISTIC pricing is the key for motivation and success of ANY business. Now, do you agree that "Your Cheap Price Drives your Laziness" True or False?

    Ask for Server IP & Nameservers IP to check if your reseller provider truly provides 100% white-label.

    Hello,

    We are always trying to be as realistic as possible.In this business,if a client wants a quality service,he/she shall get it,but with a reasonable price.Offering cheap prices just to get customers to sign up is a modern technique which some unexpirienced providers use.Clients of those providers usually end up switching to a better provider and providers usually end their campaign.

    I suppose that worth to think over the clients only and only according to that you can make decision. I suppose that is right approach.

    I agree with lincxu. It all depends on your market and who are you selling the products to.

    If you offer quality, high class car with premium price to poor people, they will simply turn you off :-)

    While agreeable, you must understand the difference in price between a crappy used car (poor people car) and a fast, sleeky, fancy car (rich people car) is too great to compare to web hosting.

    The difference in price between cheap crappy hosting and fast, reliable hosting usually isn't that great to the end user. The problem with the market is there is a huge chunk of consumers who want cheap hosting, but expect the performance of a quality provider. Yet when faced with a $5/mo plan that has 2GB of space and a $2/mo plan with '50GB', they almost always choose the cheaper 'bigger' one, even if it's for their 170MB blog that doesn't load that fast and sometimes spits out internal server errors for apparently no reason, and is down from time to time.

    To be quite honest, we charge a bit more simply because of our costs (Which we could reduce by going with cheaper upstream providers, but don't) and because it makes the majority of the budget market go elsewhere. It's much easier to provide support and keep happy a smaller client base who pays more, as opposed to a large client base who pays less per individual.

    Very true
