Host Concept Reduces Reseller Prices

Host Concept announced today that they have lowered the pricing on their reseller hosting plans. All of their plans feature free set-up and the newly reducing plans start at just $23.95 per month. Resellers can add an unlimited number of accounts to their plans and advanced management features are also provided.

“We see the new prices as reasonable if not competitive and we can do this because we run a tight ship. So for us, we are still in a profitable state,” says Cori Daniels, senior sales manager of Host Concept. “But if others plan to follow, I do hope they bring life jackets.”

Ipowerweb’s Growth Spurred By Domain Sales

According to Ipwalk, a leading web statistic program, the addition of reduced priced domain to IPowerweb’s current offerings has spurred tremendous growth for the hosting company. Currently, a one year registration for a domain is just $2.95. This special price sent Ipowerweb’s registered domains from just 2,000 to over 20,000 new domains per month.

The only problem that Ipwalk sees for IPowerweb is that the company is losing around $3 for every domain name and will need to begin upselling other products and services on a large scale to remain profitable.
