I had thought about making extra income hosting sites that I make. There are reseller hosting sites that are very cheap and I could host possibly 10 sites for $6 to $8 per month. But I also thought about all the hassle of setting up all the C panels and keeping track of everything. Also, I realize now in working on a website that I can make a change in webflow and instantly publish the change, instead of working offline and recoding a page and uploading it.
So I have two main questions.
If you’re selling your client on the idea of using webflow hosting, do they have any problem with the $12 per month hosting fee? Do you need to sell them on the benefits of hosting with webflow?
Do you feel there is room to mark up the hosting fee and make extra money? If so, what would be a reasonable fee? For example, the market I’m going after would be industries that have about 200 to 300 employees and might be doing $20MM in business, but their website needs are simple, basically a 5 page “brochure” with possibly adding some videos. Would a monthly charge of $25 to $35 for hosting be reasonable? Or would they shop around for something better? Or is that chump change? I realize if I were dealing with a mom and pop restaurant it might be a different story, and I would be interested in thoughts about pricing hosting for that type of business as well.
