    Hey B-Hatter,

    Does anyone venture into this business?
    Need some advice for those who running similar type of business.

    As per title, i know this is the old school tactic but yet still can make some additional source of income. Which is get a VPS and offer the customer a free website design with the hosting package. I wanted to venture into this business but its more to fanpage design hosting using the similar concept.

    I have been reading some of the thread in regards to this type of business here in BHW but there is one thing that is not clear to me. Let say the client opt for the monthly payment instead of the annual payment, and he didn't pay or wanted to stop the service, obviously we need to close his hosting account and his website/fanpage as well.

    But what if he took 1 month hosting with free website/fanpage and then he access the Cpanel and download all the files and upload it to a cheaper hosting provider?

    Can that happen?
    Any solution to prevent that from happening?

    Looking forward for any advice from the expert.
    Thank you in advance.
