The global hosting industry is expected to grow from $75B in 2020 to $267B by 2028, a rocket worth catching a ride on. But the top 10 players dominate more than a third of the market. If you’re not a GoDaddy-size behemoth, how do you differentiate your services, fend off competitors, grow MRR, increase margins and reduce customer churn?

This Acronis event, co-presented by Virtuozzo, explores how hosters can fatten their slice of this booming market. Moderated by Acronis advisor and CloudFest advisory board chairman Soeren von Varchmin, it centers on a panel discussion featuring two successful hosting executives and two veteran hosting infrastructure experts:

  • Christian Schneider, Senior VP of Product Management at Strato AG of Berlin, Germany
  • Joe Morgan, CEO at Joe’s Datacenter of Kansas City, MO, USA
  • Maik Broemme, Senior Product Manager at Virtuozzo
  • Stephen Nichols, Solutions Engineering Team Lead at Acronis

The panel examines challenges and opportunities facing hosters, delving into questions like:

  • What profitable new services can we offer to expand our business?
  • How do we price, package and market them?
  • How do we deal with cybersecurity threats like ransomware and tech supply-chain attacks, and how can we convert them into business opportunities?
  • How do we transform our infrastructure investments in backup and disaster recovery from a cost center to a revenue generator?
  • How can we exploit automation, integration and other optimization strategies for our tool sets to boost staff productivity and wring out costs?
