The purpose of this business plan is to raise USD 175,000 (INR Rs 1 crore) for the expansion of a website hosting company.

We are aiming to raise Rs. 1 crore for the expansion of a website hosting company while showcasing the expected financial performance and operations over the next three years. We are a based company that provides domain names, web hosting and e-Mail solutions to customers on a nationwide basis.

The Company's owner has more than 20 years of experience in the information technology industry and has been successfully running the business for the last 13 years since its inception in 2000.

From this segment of the business, the Company will generate monthly and yearly recurring revenues. It will also continue to generate secondary streams of revenue from the sale of domain names (as a third party vendor) as well as from renewal of contracts from previous years.

With the expansion, the company will have state technology to handle requests for dedicated web servers, email and newsletter transmissions to corporates, VPS services, Cloud services, support e-commerce transactions and manage dynamic CMS and provide email solutions that support smart phones, Blackberry, Android devices and others. The new business will generate recurring revenues (billed on monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis) for rendering these services to clients.

In addition to web hosting services, the business will continue with its existing business to provide customers with the ability to and other ancillary services that compliment the Company’s primary revenue center.
