Ever Thought About Venturing into a New Hosting Niche?

By March 30, 2012

Follow me on:

For those ambitious entrepreneurs who're on a constant lookout for fresh business ideas in the hosting market, Mac web hosting is definitely something that deserves a lot of attention.

Basically, I had never even thought about something like this, until last week, when I bought a new iMac, and tried running a website on it. And, I just came across a wild idea of Mac hosting, and when I did a simple Google search on "web hosting for Mac", I could hardly recognize any website in the search results that came up on the first page.

And, when I repeated my search after 7 days, most of the results had changed! Now, I could quickly comprehend that the competition isn't stiff in this niche, but I still need to do deep research to analyze the actual level of competition.

Whenever you prepare to step into a niche, market study, and competition analysis is the most crucial aspect, but when you see this niche, there are hardly any renowned service providers that offer web hosting for Mac.

Of course, there are a few companies, but there aren't any big names as you see in the shared hosting, VPS hosting, email hosting, or dedicated hosting markets. This simply means that if you come out with a solid business plans, then the chances of failure are very less. Moreover, if you succeed in establishing your stronghold in this niche, then you can be rest assured of a profitable business for years to come; so, are you game?
