    What benfits do you look for with a hosting provider

    I am currently about to begin totaly restructering my packages that i offer.. And as i do i would like to know what benefits people like from there hosting

    I am thinking off adding these benfits

    Free add coupons for google and facebook which i can get
    Free basic web design usuing templates i have rights to use
    Free domain for annual payments
    Free paper billing if requested
    Free mareting consultstion with our own in house marketing advisor

    I currently already offer 24/7 live chat support and a ticket option

    What other benifits would you want from a host and also what do you think about the ones im considering offering... Thanks

    None of the above, I would personally rather see uptime / reliablity guarantees than extra freebies.

    After all, what is more important? the add ons to your hosting, or your hosting actually *working*

    We run a 99.9% uptime already that if we ever do not fullfill it we give 2 months free hosting and also if our clients recive an unsatisfactory support responce/time we have a compensation sceme set up to say sorry.

    I was mainly asking on the packages as i stated i am changing the packages about with extras support reliability and uptime are a must not an extra thanks for your comment anyhow

    I look for uptime benefits as well as 24/7 benefits of support. Security protection benefits don't hurt either.

    Their reputation for good uptime and server performance, coupled with good, fast support when you rarely need it.

    I suppose I'm with TimIgoe on this one. The rest of the stuff is just nice to have, not something that is typically absolutely necessary.

    Good points to attract customers. In addition to try to provide more free apps and features to customers. The word Free has such a power in marketing. You have a review at this website www.Thewebpole.com . I am hosting my website through them. I am completely satisfied with them and not in an idea to change my hosting provider. Similarly bring the feeling to your customers too. All The Best for your hosting company friend.
