Web hosting is not a get rich quick line. If you find that you cannot make things happen, it maybe time to re-evaluate your position and whether or not you want to carry on.
Seeing as you are so desperate, here are a few tips.
1) If you can afford it, use google adwords and put your company's name OUT THERE. Buy the common keywords like webhosting and such, don't listen to those who tell you to use other "more focused / special" keywords, they just don't like the competition.
2) Find another job in the meantime.
3) If you think your plan prices aren't competitive enough, offer a 50% discount as a special and see if someone bites.
4) If you only have a reseller account, you are safe from high monthly fees. If you have a ded server, discard it and get a reseller account.
5) You need to be more patient. Clients don't come the minute you launch your website.

seriously, i dont mind it doesnt make money. it's more of a hobby. but i just need to cover my cost every month(it's still ok if it doesnt cover as i would still let my webhost up as long as i live). even though it's a hobby, i dont let it go and rot by itself. i care alot of my webhosting stuffs man. but seems like no one is interested in my services. haha... that's sad.
People here like a variety of things most to much for a little price. Do not compete on that or you will get sucked down a hole. Remember WHT is not the real world only a small segment of dedicated webusers. Getting your first client is the hardest part try a friend or family member and grow from there. Try your best to seperate yourself from the competition by providing a high level of personal tech support it works for us.
That just might be your problem. Not to be rude, but you should not be in this business as just a hobby. I see where you say that you care, but please just make sure that you do before diving deeper into this.
As for ways to get clients...there are many, but sadly no magic methods. As my partner above mentioned, you just have to set yourself apart. Try to evaluate what you can offer and offer it. It probably comes as a relief that one of the hardest parts to hosting is establishing that customer base.
Just be patient. It's something you're going to have to deal with in this industry. Give it time, and try to do everything you can to get your name out there. Even try a few promotions if you can.
Well first thing first. You don't have a link to your webhosting biz so we can't see what your packages look like.
I would suggest find out what is considered high but fair. For example 25 to 30 a month. Then go out and get accounts from business individuals who are not happy with their host.
For example join your local chamber of commerce or other business networking groups. Take your business card, do a talk on what to look for in a web host etc... or some other topic having to do with web hosting.
Then exchange business cards, take an active interest in what they do, don't solicit your services directly, sombody will most likely ask you a question relating to your business, thats your opportunity to try and make a sale. And hopefully the type of people you go for are not the bargain seekers...
