I've started a business!

Me and a couple of friends of mine have started a small business venture. We're selling starter hosting packages for Nepali students at the moment. They're pretty inexpensive and work fine for small sites. I'm handling the website design and marketing end of the business, while my friends are handling the technical aspects of managing a raw server, dividing it into chunks and generally making sure everything runs smoothly. We haven't had any complaints so far. But then, we haven't sold very many hosting packages so far either. Anyways, it's a great experience, and some pocket money.

We also build websites, design logos and stuff. Although we haven't had much experience, we're very affordable, and bubbling with enthusiasm. Very Happy

The most important thing is to be stable, and a backup system is always considered a better service.

Thank you! Yes, we're working to make the server stable and have as little downtime as possible. As cPanel costs money, and that would be added to the cost of our hosting, we've opted for zPanel, a free alternative to cPanel that has pretty much most features that people generally use. We also have several packages going, one is for student developers who wish to try out different things, but who don't necessarily need a lot of bandwidth and storage. We also have a blogger plan, which comes with Wordpress pre-installed and ready to go. For offices and small organizations, we have a slightly more expensive plans that comes with more features and support. All in all, we've got things covered for now, and are looking to expand in the coming days.

We're not sure how to market our hosting packages, though. Anybody have some good advertising tips?
