I don't think that's the way we're doing it exactly Smile

What I see is trying to get the announcement published on as many sites as possible. Maybe I'm missing something here, so can you please explain why what you're doing isn't forum spamming?

Why spamming in General Discussions? And "The Best Hosting has arrived"? You must kidding, you do not have the best hosting site. There is no Best Hosting. You just spam here and there to get some clients what is not very good for reputation. I recommed for real good clients "Without abusers" to use Paid Advertisements and not simple advertisement what completely useless is. As again, you're not the best hosting provider at all, i've checked your domain but its totally not scored on ranking a page. You must do your homework before launching your website. But not early in Development stage. People want to signup at your website and not in a competition for who wanted a website. Not to be a fool to you but Signup via a client area is the best way to make clients happy and not via your way with competitions or however you would like to called. But this is just how it looks like in my eyes. Note that there is no best webhosting provider in the world, some people like your website as provider and they saying the best. If you have everyone on the whole world on your server and everyone say you're best provider then you can called that the best Free Provider has been arrived but for now its totally nonsense.

Do you think that having an open registration may be better than having an Invite system?

Yes if you want have clients faster then you must use a billing system as me and other resellers here and around. I've try that in the past with a free domain but that doesn't work pretty. So i recommed to do that.

Hello,
As for the reseller, we don't need it. We prefer having our own infrastructure.
Even though, we can for sure chat on skype: [email protected]

If you can hype your product well enough, having an invite system could be beneficial. The best example case I can think of is the cell phone manufacturer OnePlus. They offered the hardware of $700 dollar phones for around half the price and then delivered a REALLY good phone. Social networks went crazy because everyone wanted to get an invite to get that amazing phone.

However, you probably knew that already (considering the name of your service, how original).

The thing is that you're not selling a phone, you're providing free hosting. There are already a ton of free hosting providers out there and most of them make the same promises you do (unlimited space, no ads, fast and reliable, 99.9% uptime, cPanel), so your offer isn't that revolutionary. It doesn't really shock the internet in the same way the phone from OnePlus did.

That said, I admit that most providers don't provide everything they offer. And maybe you do. However, for that honesty to get traction you need happy users first to spread the positive attention. But to do that, you will need to have users first.

And even then, what you're offering would be equivalent to $3-$5 per month shared hosting. With OnePlus, people saved $400. With you, they saved a few bucks, the price of a cup of coffee. And I highly doubt people would switch from a $4 hosting account to free hosting because the risk just isn't worth the reward.

Finally, there is another big difference: whether the business model is feasible on the long term. OnePlus decided "we're not going to spend anything on marketing, we're going to spend the same on building the phone as other manufacturers do and we pass the savings to our customers". That sounds sensible from a financial perspective, OnePlus can do that and still make money. You provide free hosting. How do you pay for it? Third party investors? Ads? Upgrades? All of those undermine either the offer itself or it's long term viability.

You're a smart guy, Fran, and I know that you know what you're doing. And maybe I'm just overly skeptical. But I think you're overestimating the demand for free hosting.
