    I'm thinking about setting up a few monster-sized dedis to offer affordable VPS around here in the marketplace to offset my current hosting costs. This poll assumes you want to buy a VPS or currently own at least one. If you can answer this poll it will greatly help me. Please be honest (Your vote won't be shown publicly).

    Thanks!

    So you are going to spend more money to set up dedicated servers then try to make sales to cover your current hosting cost?

    Seems odd but best of luck

    I would try to cover my cost with what I am doing now instead of trying to spend more money going after something else.

    Before you set up a dedicated server look at all the VPS offers that are on the market. Come up with something that is going to make you different than anyone else.

    Things you need to think about is support, billing, and so on .

    Anyways best of luck if you do it right you can make some money with it.

    I've ran a dedi hosting company before. I ran a section of a datacenter. Also, the server(s) I would need is/are only a bit more $ than the one I currently have (I found an awesome deal). The software and support are easy. This isn't a road I haven't been down before. It's just that this time it's VPS and I don't want to have to go do all the marketing I did last time. Maybe a post around here and in webhostingtalk.
