    • online advertising
    • Join your local BNI group and generate personal referrals
    • Pay attention to DMCA - I wouldn't want my business on a host that ignores them
    • radio advertising
    • flyers
    • sponsor an event
    how big is your marketing budget?

    I had such plans
    - buy reviews on different blogs
    - buy advertising on the forums
    - social network
    - try to get traffic
    - create an advertising company Google Ads
    I have a budget of about $ 1,500 per month.

    I'd be really careful about the blogs. Would you buy hosting from a blog recommendation?

    Get your hosting listed on different sites, SEO, run paid-ads after doing KW research. Get your clients to review your service on different sites that take reviews from users.

    I've been looking for a host who ignores DMCA, or at least keeps my contact info undisclosed.
    Where is the server located, and what is the cost of starter package?
    I can pay via paypal.

    I don't require too much space to start with, mostly old songs and short videos is what I want to host.
    But I think I will need more space/bandwidth later. Hope upgrading later will not be a problem.

    Kindly contact me with your pricing etc.
    Thanks

    It has been a fair few years since I was in the web-hosting game, but I started targeting certain niches. I specialised in hosting football club sites, professional wrestling promotion sites and sites for bands and artists.

    Give Free Trial. That way people will be induced to signup.
    Also create affiliate promotions.

    I can recommend you to try to put yourself in rating lists in facebook groups, it should give you lot of refferals, do remember that you are in most compete web business on that planet probably. So something should really be of help like that.

    I signed up with him. (that day when I asked him to contact me, same day)
    He did all the VPS installation work for me, gave me a ready to host VPS.
    And so far its going good, surprisingly very fast too. Much faster than my VPS with hostgator.
    I just hope he continues the good service.

    If things remain like they are now, I will definitely buy more hosting from him.

    I think the best way is to sell your hosting is advertising. And Some other way also.
    1: Create articles to another reputed website. Like medium
    2: Paid advertisement
    3: Create a referral bonus for other people then you can see other people will promote your website.
    4: Service good. If your service not good then cheap also people won't buy. People seek good this time not only cheap.
    5: You can contact with the good blogger who can give you review.
    You have to spend money first before earning. It means you have to earn a reputation.

    You need to promote your site:
    1. Optimize the site for your target audience
    2. Make groups on social networks and generate internet content
    3. It is possible to run targeted and contextual advertising
    4. Write various useful articles in third-party resources

    You may also look at this from the SEO side. Buying links, traffic, optimize your site pages, add more keywords, etc
