    thank you!

    1) Come with an incredible offer
    2) Come with an offer that is annual or lifetime for some money
    3) Take the money and deliver the server
    4) Keep the money and shut down the server.
    5) Be a dick on LET

    Thank me later.

    Better name like dollarvps.host with lifetime deals, oversell non existing hardware, hold all the funds and don’t deliver any accounts just keep promises and any issue with customers mentioned that all the services are non refundable like some hosts do :smiley:

    To start, I would recommend just reselling dedis so you get a feel of things before you start dumping money into hardware (that you don't know if people will need)

    Most of all, you need a clear plan for how to sell and make a profit on your services.

    And don't expect that other web hosting business owners help you become competition for their business.

    now serious , do you have any ideea of this world ?

  • I have a 10k $ bucket. Do you think if I will step in to host industry?

    You don't really need that amount of money, but more experience and practice.
    Start with something small; try to offer free for usage 1 rented by your dedicated server.
    Focus on just one slice of your dedicated server at one time. Do not mix and mess your learning curve with the horizontal grown of products.

    For example:
    1. purchase https://www.ovhcloud.com/en/bare-metal/game/prices/
    2. purchase and install https://www.whmcs.com/pricing/
    3. and this one: https://docs.whmcs.com/Virtualizor
    4. and this one: https://virtualizor.com/pricing
    5. also, you need: https://docs.whmcs.com/Mailchimp
    6. and this one: https://mailchimp.com/pricing/
    7. Then you will need a website. Purchase whmcs and landing page bundle (extra 50-100usd)
    8. Start share info about your hosting on the game communities.
    9. Start to grow.
    10. On first real problem from the market - close your business, lose all of your money and time that you spent. And get out of the business.

    Listen, the hosting industry is not a simple thing, even if many solutions already mentioned above. Your customers will be very different, and with different requirements. If you don't have real-life experience in the hosting industry, you can't start to do anything successfully. A lot of people here spending their big part of their life on this work. They know tons of nuances and small deep details.

    Your initial payment for offering something that is required by the market right now:

    1600 USD just for server purchase for 1 year.
    +
    85 USD for WHMCS + 225 USD for the first year.
    +
    95 USD for virtualizor annually.
    +
    around 100 USD for mail solutions (for a transaction, marketing emails for your growing audience)
    +
    landing and website onetime payment around 100 USD.
    +
    hosting of your website around 100 USD / annually.

    Summary: 1600 + 85 + 95 + 100 + 100 + 100 = 2080 just for starting "summerhost business".

    2080 / ~10 = ~200-220 USD per month your server should generate for returning your investments this year.

    You have 64GB ram, + cool CPU.
    2GB plans + 1 Core + 15NVMe ~ 30 customers on the node.

    210 / 30 = minimum 7 USD per month for the VPS for 30 at the same time users of your services just for being in plus.

    Plus hidden fees and unexpected fees.

    Are you sure you want all of that?

    Sorry, this is very rough and not really correct. A lot of costs possible to minimize and optimize, but this is just an illustration that this is not a "super nice and profitable business," if you got somehow 10 USD free in your wallet, better for you to stick to a business where you're great. Let professionals in the LowEnd market do their job what they know how to do and balance between pricings, and performance.

    I've been operating a summer host for much cheaper than this, because I coded all the components so that I cut out software licensing fees.

    Many registrars have cheaper prices for the first year, if you were serious you would use that to "reserve" the domain before announcing you plan to use it. If you can't afford that or are not sure enough, don't mention it publicly.
    Things like domains and usernames will always be squatted as fast as possible. A friend of mine once wanted to register a Github organisation with a specific name but made the mistake of mentioning it in public. Mere minutes later, taken. Lessons were learnt that day, lets hope this is a lesson to you.
