 Week 1. How To Start Online Business with Netcetera.

Right guys, I’m sure we’ve all sat up and took note of how successful some of these new Online Businesses have become, Uber, Tinder, Eventbrite and many more. I’d love to have a go at starting an online business from scratch. Yep… that’s right, from idea, right the way through to attracting clients, sponsors and potentially advertising and turning the idea into something viable. To make it that little bit more challenging I’m not really a tech person which could be like doing the Tour de France on a BMX, not impossible, but not what you want to be really doing.  Pinterest Graphic – Tips Week3

I’ve had a few ideas and I’ve created a few businesses previously, and made some big mistakes. Some would say failures, but I call them lessons. We’ve heard it said plenty of times, but a fail is the first attempt in learning. 

I’ve set a business up from scratch in Ghana, developing a market, catching malaria (not recommended) and having to converse in Twi. Not easy but we never gave up and achieved what we wanted to do. I’ve sold water filters and glazing and I’ve built a park. Building an online business, well this will be a challenge.

I can’t give too much detail yet, partly because I’m not sure what it will be. I’ve looked at creating an auction site but that’s sort of been done. I thought about ordering takeaways online but that’s been done too. I also had this great idea for a shared ride scheme where people could offer lifts like a taxi, but low and behold someone is now doing this too. I’ve played with the idea of a dating app too but that one brought about suspicion from my wife so I’ll park that idea for now.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be looking at the following :   

Join in with the fun as we learn about all the tech stuff, searching out the online tools that make life easier and getting to grips with promoting a new business through all the social media platforms.

Sounds interesting ? I hope it’s going to be, because it’s me that has to do it. All you guys need to do is follow, share and comment as we set out on this journey to create the next Ebay. (ok maybe not Ebay)

So as we come to the end of what we hope has been an informative story, we come to what might be the most important element.

Part 8: The Cost

Following on from the Introduction and previous blog posts including last weeks insight into Tools and applications . It’s now time to turn our attention to the price you pay.

Last but not least, pricing is an important factor when choosing a web host. With so many providers out there we know it can be a difficult choice to make, especially when you have to consider all the different variables that go into pricing an individual plan. The general rule of thumb is that you get what you pay for.

If a company is charging a very small monthly fee, they have no choice but to skimp in other areas, perhaps in some of the ways we have highlighted in these blogs.

Another area to be on the lookout for is renewal pricing. Many hosts will offer a significantly discounted price for the first year in order to “get you hooked,” but when renewal time comes, your bill can be up to three times the cost of your first year! Make sure to read what you are buying and what the future pricing is likely to be.

At Netcetera we have simple pricing, no hidden costs or small print and to help you get started we allow you to pay monthly. There is no renewal pricing, what you see is what you get. Our plans start at only £2.99 per month and regardless of which solution you require, each one comes with fantastic reliability, security and awesome support without sacrificing on quality.

Make the right choice for you

As you can see, there are many factors that come into play when choosing a web host. These general factors should help you find the right one, even if it’s not with Netcetera we would still hope you’ll see the tremendous value we provide. If at any time you have to question if Netcetera is right for you, simply head to our website and start up a live chat. We’ll be glad to answer any questions you might have.

Posted by Steve Salter on 11 April 2016 11:59 AM

We are pleased to say as we continue with our 20th year in business celebrations that we haven’t sat back on our laurels and our hard work and continued investment in new technology and environment friendly hosting has yet again been recognised by external monitoring.

Webperf has been the UK’s only independent performance benchmark since 1998, undertaking testing on any willing ISP provider for reliability and performance.

Unlike some ISP’s, Netcetera is open to independent auditing, it is something that we are very proud of, as it allows our existing and potential clients the opportunity to make informed choices when it comes to meeting their hosting requirements. Not only are we a super fast reliable ISP but we are also super energy efficient and green.

With an ever increasing amount of businesses now looking at ways to improve their online image we feel there is no better place to start than with reliable fast hosting that doesn’t harm the planet.

Don’t just take our word for it. Try it out for yourself right now with one of our FREE hosting trials. We’re sure you’ll love being with the UK’s #1 for performance and reliability.

In a very close second place, Netcetera also responded to every Netcraft request, but with a slightly longer average connection time. Netcetera owns and operates a carbon neutral data centre on the Isle of Man, and recently celebrated its 20th birthday, having been in the hosting business since 1996.

Netcetera has done it again in March.  We are still right up at the top of the list, a remarkable achievement for a business that has been operating for over 20 years. The results over the last few months clearly show that Netcetera is a company that still continues to provide some of the most reliable hosting on the planet.  Not just fast reliable hosting but hosting that doesn’t destroy the environment.

HappyMother's Day (6)

Netcraft has now been monitoring Netcetera for over 11 years and we’re pleased to say that during that 11 year period we have maintained an uptime record of 99.96 %. Staggering when you consider that this is over a decade of Internet Service Provision to a client base in over 75 countries around the world.

Not all ISP’s are as open about independent monitoring as we are.Not only are we happy to be monitored by Netcraft but we have also opened our doors to Webperf too.

Don’t just take our word for how fast and reliable our hosting is, take a test drive now with one of our birthday promo deals to celebrate 20 years in business.

Try one of our Zero Carbon Hosting Packages with a FREE 7 day trial. After that, it’s up to you, but we’re quite confident that once you’ve experienced what Netcetera can do for your business you’ll never want to host anywhere else.
