How do you make money by providing FREE Hosting?


New Member
I would like to learn how web hosting companies make money by offering free hosting to customers.

* By placing ads on their web sites?
* Or by selling paid hosting to their customers after a certain amount of time?

Please let me know if you have other methods as well.
Thank you,

* You can put ads in user pages
* Put ads in your forum & offer Post for Hosting.
* If you've a good Paid hosting base you can introduce your services to newcomers for free.This will eventually come fruitfull..:)


Be as honest as you can.
Try your best to make every customer aware of every issue at any given time.
Explain changes made, requirements necessary.
Stress to your resellers that they need to follow your standards and practices, (most resellers are not so anonymous anymore as the public becomes more aware)
Customers will recommend other people to you. Word of mouth advertising is the absolute best way to go.
