    Fair Hosting Prices?

    As I mentioned before, I said I was interested in starting a proxy host. While I am not ready for this, I wanted to try it out by just renting a VPS and letting out some accounts. The prices below are what I have come up with, so that I make some (very very little) profit, and I have compared it to other hosting providers (TMZHosting and TechEntrance) and it is around the same or even better than them.

    Here are features:
    cPanel Servers
    4GB Guaranteed Ram (8GB Burstable)
    Free Nightly Backups
    Auto-Reboots on server failures

    I am also only selling a portion of the server - 2/3 of it. This will leave 1/3 of the resources in case of sudden traffic surges.

    Here are the plans I have come up with. The better the plan, the more you save:

    1GB Disk Space
    50GB Bandwidth
    $5.99
    2 Domains

    3GB Disk Space
    100GB Bandwidth
    $10.99
    5 Domains

    5GB Disk Space
    200GB Bandwidth
    $20.99
    10 Domains

    10GB Disk Space
    500GB Bandwidth
    $50.99
    Unlimited Domains

    Support would be provided via Email, PM, and MSN. CGI proxies would not be allowed (until I start upgrading and getting better servers).


    I would like opinions below, and if anybody is actually interested in this, please PM me.

    I honestly think that those prices are reasonable if you can manage to have a good uptime. I might come and give it a go once my hosting plan finishes in a months time.

    I'd say all are near reasonably priced, until of course the $50.99 plan. Most savvy users would be able to find a vps for around that price and have much better control over things.

    Cheers!

    You're starting proxy hosting too? Prices are good. As for the last one, I'd suggest maybe making a deal with a DC to get either an atom or a VPS to handle them.

    Once I start breaking even, I will expand and get more and more.

    @dtkguy, yes I agree that you could go and get a VPS for the same price. However, shared hosting I believe is usually more for the non-tech savvy user. Either way, the price is still based on the original, and is cheaper than other providers.
