    The price is reasonable, not expensive at all.
    most people here just want cheap....

    Yeah and we're not trying to sell ourselves short. We know what's required to make a profit and we know $5/mo. or $50/yr. isn't going to do that.

    And furthermore, as I previously stated, we are not a new company. I've been the owner of Sharpnet for the past four and a half years and it's been nothing short of amazing in regards to what I've done with my company (that's what some say anyways) and I'm not done yet.

    In my humble opinion, I believe with evenly priced packages, good servers and good support I can't fail. This is the reason I'm at where I'm at now. I just hope people on WHT can see eye to eye with me on this.

    In any event, Thanks for the input guys.. I will be posting more packages shortly and they are all ready to be purchased, or new site just isn't done yet.

    Okay this is exactly why i asked what type of server you had the plans on...

    At that rate your putting 150 domains on the server.
    Your placing 2225GB of bandwidth load on the server.
    And your charging $1 a Gig...

    Server isnt overloaded, the server can handle the bandwidth you claim you can sale, and you(assuming your paying a discount rate on bulk bandwidth) are probably making about .60 a Gig....

    Leaving you $1335.00 a server, a month.
    Your profit margin is good, your pricing is fair because you can provide quality on the server without overloading it, and assuming you actually have the bandwidth to sale your hopefully not over saling but if you did fill the server with that much bandwidth you would still make your profit, assuming your paying no more than .40 a gig.

    I dont know your expenses.. but looking at the numbers and guesses i took, i would say the plans are great...

    I look at it like that when im looking,
    If someone offers me 10GB of bandwidth for $2 i wouldnt even reply to them, your plans i would go for. Charge your price, dont try to compete with liars they will take thereselves out of business..

    Good luck

    Cool Cool beans!

    Thank you very, very much.

    That is the kind of inspiration I was looking for and I've done the math and it all works out very well.

    My dad told me that it's been proven that people won't pay rounded numbers because with $.95 or $.99 they feel like their getting away with something. Is this true?

    Does anyone know of any good marketing/business organization sites?
