It’s hard to come up with creative titles for a growing industry that we want to cover this year – in other words, I believe that managed hosting is going to see a huge growth spike this year as more and more WordPress consultants, theme shops, and independent providers launch their own managed hosting solutions.
And we want to continue to canvas and notify you guys of the new services that launch – but most of them, at this point in time, aren’t doing anything “out of the ordinary” or appear to be doing anything necessarily innovative. That’s not a bad thing – it’s just what it is.
One thing that immediately stood out with Nodeki though is the idea that they have a one-time price idea for some customers. Pay once and never again? Ah.
I suppose this could work if you had a small microsite that you knew would never really scale or have a limited usage for a small amount of time. But I’m having difficultly, honestly, to consider use-cases for the lifetime offer, especially when I could host my own site for much cheaper.
But it might be a growth area for Nodeki that finds a special place among customers – who’s to tell at this point, right?
See anything I’m missing on this one?
Oh, and maybe you’re up for a trial run: They are giving away 25 accounts:
