    Shared hosting 12 dollars a year?

    I will be a bit surprising if I can know any web hosting companies are offering 12 dollars a year for a shared hosting package. It is such a cheap price and I don't know if they can provide quality services and good support?

    It depends on the plan specifications, I do 10GB Space for 10 websites at £15 Per Year for example.

    Yes everyone always wanted cheap web hosting services but high quality service. In the past I used shared hosting from Hostgator $10 / month because I have no choice and didn't know any shared hosting companies offered under $8 / month for a shared hosting plan.

    It's quite common for hosts to offer such cheap starter plans to attract more customers that are sensitive to price. Most people are not sure about spending lots of money on the services that they haven't checked for themselves, especially shared hosting so they like to get some sort of test plans, (if the host offers trial plan) they aim for cheapest plans. This way they can test if hosts are up to the task and deliver services that they are usually bragging about.

    Just remember, cheaper price often means cheaper service.

    Most of the time when I hear of hosts shutting down in the middle of the night, or see hosting companies for sale, it's the cheap ~$1/mo hosts.

    Like any business, your prices must be enough to cover expenses and make a profit, or you won't be in business for very long!

    That price is a bit unrealistic if they offer you anything more than 1GB / 500MB SSD. Unless they are using incredible outdated hardware, I cannot imagine how they can turn a profit when you have to factor in any hardware upgrades / replacement, licensing fees, bandwidth costs, staff costs etc.. If you use a host with those kinds of prices, id strongly suggest you backup your website every day at the very minimum.

    From my experience, that business model will simply not last for any serious length of time, and is one of the problems with the industry today.

    On the part of people selling hosting, I think it's a bad marketing move. Instead, it's better to wait until you have more credibility. However, who knows, if your website and ads are professional enough, then it might work. I cannot really say absolutely. Myself, I've fallen into that trap, but bascially it's been a desert with no buyers. However, then again, I haven't really bought a professional theme or ads, instead just advertising via threads on my own forum.

    In all honesty 12$ a year is not even that cheap compared to today standards. If the plan is not offering some over the top features or just seems too good to be true, chances are u might get decent service afterall.

    I feel like offering web hosting under $10 per year will become very stressful in the long run, as you will have clients with not too much return and you will have to provide support at a cost. Unless of course, if you are a big provider and costs are not an issue then this would obviously not be an issue unless if they oversell.

    It's possible to find, and to be honest some websites don't even need close to 1GB for website and a few email's.
    We have plumbers, gardeners, coffee shops that use budget plans and for them works really well. Absolutely no problems. The only calls/support we get is when they need a new email address and we are always happy to assist them. No need to buy a Ferrari when all you need is a FIAT.
    Good luck with your search and your new provider.
