    Niche? Do we have one?

    Hi,

    I was going through few posts in this forum section and read many users opinion for new bees or who are seeking advice on startup / promotion that he/she need to find out niche in hosting industry. I am just wondering do we still left any niche in hosting world at all? Does anyone has recently started his/her company based on niche? Or, do you know any company started recently?

    Thanks!

    Niche, it is and will be present there, always.

    It depends on your imagination, creativity and the market you are going to target.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. But do you think that the big hosts out there are doing something which is out of imagination and creativity. I am indeed talking about hosting market.

    It sounds like you're looking for someone to tell you who to market your hosting services to, where you can make some money. Unfortunately, you're not going to receive any quality answers to that question on these boards. We're all web hosts and we're all looking to increase our sales

    Yea they are doing something. They are making offers out of this world for diskspace and bandwidth at real low prices to lure you in. Once you get in you realize that their AUP or TOS places limits on what you have. It's like selling a kid a candy company but telling him he can only have two pieces of candy a month.

    You can't compete on price. That's why they say to find a niche.

    Thanks "Shaw Networks" for your post. I am not a web host neither I am interested in selling hosting. The question, I asked out of my curiosity after reading few threads on this forum. I know that most of the hosting companies on this board are looking for promotion and sales.

    You are right that they offer lucrative prices and hosting resources however, when it comes to customer touching those resources, their AUP makes hurdle.

    Enterprise level companies, are companies who could not operate properly without having their servers online. We offer Managed Servers.
