Lightning Pitch: Decibite
Zappos for web hosting.
Decibite offers non-technical entrepreneurs the benefits of owning a server without the headache of maintaining one.
- Direct technical support.
- Full resource accountability and transparency.
- Encryption-based security and privacy features.
- An asset customized to fit your needs.
We will also plant trees to offset all server CO2 emissions.
Many of these are geared towards technical developers. As such, we believe they are too complicated for the non-technical entrepreneurs. Not only will our language be clear and simple, we will provide direct access to our technical support team. Very few hosting companies provide clear resource transparency. Those that do charge with a complicated usage fee. We provide the tools for resource transparency with simple pricing; and if someone no longer needs their resources, they can either rent or resell their server space.
As we grow, we will also begin incorporating a third-party marketplace for these entrepreneurs to benefit from other valuable resources, such as services from developers, graphic design artists, and marketers.
