Case Study #3 – UnmanagedHosting.com

Posted on 16 April 2011 by Andrei

My “let’s turn great domains into businesses” series of full disclosure case studies continues and today, I’ll analyze my latest project, Unmanaged Hosting Dot Com. As the name suggests, UnmanagedHosting.com has offering unmanaged dedicated servers (affordable $45/month management is available though, we can handle everything for you if that’s what you’d prefer) at rock bottom prices as its business model. Alright then, let’s get started (same format as the other 2 case studies):


Background

As most of you probably know by now, we’re one of the Web’s major players when it comes to services and have even published case studies about the projects in question. I’ve analyzed my banner design, logo design and theme design companies through case study #1 and my article writing company through case study #2, be sure to read the two case studies if you haven’t by now.

We’ve been offering all of these services even before the 4 websites have been launched and literally hundreds of domainers/webmasters have bought something from us up until this point, which brings us to my #1 goal:

I Want You to Buy EVERYTHING from Me

I was born to offer services, it’s what I do best. Most people hate dealing with clients, I love every minute of it and there’s no doubt in my mind that offering online services will always be an extremely important part of my business model.

People trust me and they know I’m a vendor they can rely on. Win-win all the way and under these circumstances, why should I limit myself to just one or two services?

If you know my company is an asset to your business, I’m sure you’ll agree that taking things to the next level is the smart thing to do. Am I perfect? No. Are my employees perfect? No. I’d be the world’s biggest hypocrite to claim that I never do anything wrong but what I can guarantee is that I’ll always make sure that you as a client are satisfied.

Why UnmanagedHosting.com?

Self explanatory, UnmanagedHosting.com is easily one of the best hosting domains out there.

Offering unmanaged dedicated servers is my business model, so using this baby makes perfect sense. But since I know that a lot of my clients are not tech savvy, I decided to also offer an affordable $45/month management package (unlimited tickets).

If you want us to manage the server for you (maybe you don’t know how to manage your server, maybe you won’t want to), no problem because as mentioned previously, I want you to buy EVERYTHING from me πŸ™‚

Wholesale, Wholesale, Wholesale

I explained this on more than one occasion: my company has “selling to sellers” as its business model. LOTS of people buy articles/banners/logos/themes from us and re-sell them to other parties and I’m 100% sure that the same thing will happen with our dedicated servers. No problem at all, I want everyone to make money and as long as I get paid, it’s all good.

Some people prefer selling at retail prices, I don’t. As far as I’m concerned, it’s wholesale all the way because at the end of the day, I’m one of the most experienced business owners out there when it comes to the “selling to sellers” approach to making money.

Great Domains + Solid Business Model + Determination

… there you have it, the β€œnot so secret” formula I’ve been repeatedly telling you about since I bought DomainingTips.com.

Some people always look for shortcuts and easy money, I don’t.

I’m in it for the long haul. What about you?

    @question: we can install both Linux (CentOS / Fedora / FreeBSD) and Windows (Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition / Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) operating systems on your server, please check out our “Licenses” page (https://unmanagedhosting.com/licenses.php) when you get a chance to.

    Interesting perspective from your side, I honestly thought I was in it for the long haul. After a year of trying to deal with clients, I found out I have no patience for them at all.

    You might be interested in the little empire I managed to build thanks to my knowledge of domains. It sounds like you’ll do 1,000 times better than me.
