DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN.

Nowadays many people are under the impression that having a startup business is promising. They want to find partners to make a website or an mobile app in the hope of being acquired for few million dollars by big companies like Google, Yahoo, Facebook etc. This sounds nice,right? One day we heard that someone became a millionaire because he was doing well on the E-commerce. Some so-called online “guru” even claimed that they made a buck because he started a big project on the internet and therefore he escaped the nine-to-five lifestyle. Is this true? No one knows. In the past, 99% of information is true on the internet. But it is not the case nowadays.

These days some people know a bit of the startup concepts and then go boasting of his knowledge. A product manager talked with his boss and ordered a bottle of red wine and then boasted. ‘Nowadays the Internet dominates our life. Do you know the fastest way to make money? E-commerce! Do you know what B2B is? What is Big Data and cloud computing? The online business will take over the traditional business soon. Please act quickly on the field of Internet and take the lead to be the number one and you can get rich overnight.’ The boss is not clear about the concepts but he enjoys the way the product manager presents to him and without much thinking, he invested money on the online project. And then this product manager had a startup business and then he used up all of the money. But, you know what, nothing was gained and this product manager made a sigh, ‘online business becomes a red sea and very competitive.’ After this, he disappeared.

The above-mentioned example is definitely a bad one. Their startup ideas are something like: they claim themselves to be product managers while they are just doing menial jobs in a big firm; they claim that they are designing a phone while they are sticking the screen protectors on a phone;they claim that they have experience of developing search engine while they are just making a frame of a search engine; they claim themselves to be the competitor of Facebook while they are just making a flowchart and SNS.

Example one: A product manager suggests a grocery boss to move his offline business to an online one. How? Simply importing goods from wholesalers and then sell on eBay. And then? No and then.

Example two: A business boss plans to enter the field of the mobile world. He clones the app of others. The app is changed with the color and the app name. Nothing special. The app always pops out a message asking for money to continue with the app.

Example three: A businessman is about to found his startup business. He has no products. What he has is an idea. First he makes a press release,boasting his concept. And then he employs some freelancers to write advertorials in the hope of deceiving the venture capital. After he deceives the investors, he then put all of the capitals into the promotion of his idea and marketing. This forms a loop. He simply does not have any product of his own. The results is imaginably a failure.

A true startup business is definitely painful. Successful startup business always pays off with action and thorough plans. If you plan to have a startup business, put your ideas into actions and be down-to-earth. When you have some ideas or some troubles, feel free to share with some passionate partners of the same interest and same goal. This can increase you knowledge and build a good social network. Once again, having a startup business is not an easy task. It requires not only knowledge and physical strength, but also perseverance. Bear in mind that as a founder of a startup business,difficulty will strengthen your mind.

Last but not the least, founding a startup business needs action. Do not quit your job simply because you want to do this. Do not follow suit and just copy from others. In that case you may realize that you lose a job and fail in the business and have got nothing.
