Making the Online World Safer and Secure

Hosting Duty: Making the Online World Safer and Secure

Cyber-security is a growing concern in the widespread online community. One would often come across news about cyber-attacks frequently.

A popular American TV series, Mr. Robot has re-imagined the cybersecurity threat to institutions among the netizens. Recent news of a data breach on Facebook of its 50 million users has again alarmed the online community.

By the history of these Data breaches, one can easily infer that government/ Public initiatives are not sufficient to counter this impending threat.

On a lazy and lonely afternoon in January 2015, Ninad was making a web server on his old computer system with a staggering 512 kbps home broadband along with his friend.

They dedicated three consecutive months to configuring the server diligently, gearing up to offer internet space for sale. Unfortunately, their hard work didn't yield results for an additional three months.

Therefore, Ninad initiated the process of website design and subsequently uploaded the finished products to his server. This endeavour persisted throughout his fourth year of Engineering, culminating in the successful hosting of 300 websites by the end of this period.

Our editorial team spoke to Ninad, the CEO of the firm, to know more about HostingDuty and himself. Here are the edited excerpts…

What are the products and services offered under the organization's hat?

We primarily host websites and mobile applications on the array of Shared Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, Virtual Private Servers, WordPress hosting, Business Hosting, SSL Certificates, Website Builder, and Email Security.

What stands as the key differentiators of the organization?

In my opinion, our customer support makes us stand apart from other organizations. Our primary focus is to provide personalized support to our clients while striving hard to maintain transparency.

I believe in every aspect of life, trust is the most important thing of all. In business, trust develops from transparency. Therefore, we never hide any details from our clients.

What are the most effective marketing initiatives or programs you have used in promoting your services?

We haven't done any marketing campaign as such. The quality of our products speaks for itself. We believe a happy customer brings more customers to us. At the moment, we solely depend upon mouth-to-mouth publicity and social media.

Please share with us something about Investors and Investment.

"Our firm is bootstrapped, and since its inception, for the first time, we are looking for investors to invest in our latest venture called 'VenuBox.' The idea of VenuBox, an event management app, was stuck in our minds for a very long time.

We started to work on its development in August 2017. We have used some of the most advanced technologies, like NodeJS and React Native, to build this application. Today, it stands ready to make its debut in the market."

What are the major milestones for the company since its founding? Does the organization have any new projects coming up?

We haven't set up any milestones yet. Achieving milestones could involve collaborating on a brief website project with Uber, undertaking the development of apps for Legasis, or overseeing the IT infrastructure for Clean India Group.

"As I said earlier, we are coming up with a new App called "VenuBox" which I believe could be a game changer for small and medium-scale events."

What is your favorite aspect of being an entrepreneur?

"As an entrepreneur, I get the opportunity to touch the lives of many individuals entering the field. Therefore, it helps me to transform the workplace and the way my team operates."

What piece of advice would you give to youth in the business environment?

"I believe that I can give better suggestions rather than going with the advice part. I would say working hard and not giving up on your dreams is the key to sustainability. There will be times when one may feel low or frustrated, but one must remember why one started in the first place."

How do you learn in your life and what is your biggest dream? Who are your peers?

"Self-experiences and advice from people who are more experienced and have seen more world than mine are my greatest teachers. My biggest dream is to make this company a multi-billion-dollar company and provide jobs to as many individuals as possible."

What is the hardest thing about being an entrepreneur?

"I think the hardest thing would be the responsibility towards your associates. It is the responsibility of the entrepreneur to look after them, financially as well as on emotional grounds.

The contentment of your associates serves as a driving force that inspires them to go above and beyond, setting you apart from your competitors. Your associates play a pivotal role because when they are satisfied, it translates into customer satisfaction. When customers are content, it naturally brings joy to you as well."

What is the best thing about being an entrepreneur?

"I think the faster learning curve is the best thing that can happen to an entrepreneur. The speed of learning becomes astonishingly fast. The lessons and experiences that would have taken decades to learn came to me while being an entrepreneur.

Now, I can gauge people's reactions. It is now easy to distinguish between genuine buyers and window shoppers. Being an entrepreneur helped me imbibe a multifold understanding of taxation, accounts, and management despite being a computer engineer."
