    Honestly, I would not charge $30 per month for hosting a website. I think
    the price is a bit high. Hostgator allows you to host unlimited domains for
    $10 per month. But if you are offering other services along with hosting, then
    maybe it's fine.

    For getting the client, what I would do is build them a sample website based on
    their business, then give them a call and show them the website. If the client
    is interested you can then get a domain name and charge for the hosting.

    Clients like to see what they are buying, so show them the website!

    See all these off-line guys always spoutin' off around here?
    Most of the time if a client needs a site including hosting, domain and web design
    maybe one of them could make a deal with you?

        I don't think $30 a month is to expensive. Your market would probably be the type of customer that have no interest in learning about hosting, registering domain names, etc. They want you to take care of it all....and if they can get a web design for $0, they are even happier to hear more/consider your services.
