1. Sir, please introduce yourself. Where were you born and raised?
Rajesh Chauhan: Hello! I am Rajesh Chauhan, and the founder and CEO of GoogieHost; a free web hosting company. I have completed my Bachelors in Computer Applications (B.C.A) from Sikkim Manipal University in 2014.
I live in Lucknow and handle all my work from there. I am a passionate blogger, SEO specialist, and Of course a Digital Marketer, I have been running GoogieHost since 2012.
Aman Singh: Hello, My name is Aman Singh, and I have been the admin working with Rajesh Sir since 2017. I have been working as a backbone of GoogieHost since then. I also stay in Lucknow, India.
Well, I am also a rising Digital Marketer from Lucknow India. Talking about my education, I am currently pursuing B.A.
2. What influenced your formation?
Rajesh Chauhan: There was no conscious decision at first. It was way back when I was in High school, I used to wonder while playing games on NOKIA Premium mobiles.
How are the games being uploaded on the internet?
Can I also do it?
At that time, we primarily focused on our schools and studies, but in our spare time, we used to learn digital marketing, website designing, and SEO.
To be honest, this thought while playing the games was a spark in this beautiful journey.
3. How did you come to the idea of creating your own Hosting service the Googiehost?
Rajesh Chauhan: (Smiling) The very creation of the GoogieHost happened by chance. The idea of adopting this domain name was not pre decided, but in the process of choosing a suitable name, we found GoogieHost as the most appropriate one, and the journey began in 2014!
Although I was not a very bright student, I always believed in polishing my skills. After a lot of research, I started an initiative, which later turned out to be our free hosting revolution.
Aman Singh: I joined Sir Rajesh in 2017 since then I am working with his team. Surprisingly my thoughts really matched with Rajesh Sir.
(Both grinning) Actually, this whole journey was a mere chance but yes, This fulfilled our vision of helping the youth to start their own website at a nominal cost! We are happy about it.
Rajesh Chauhan: My whole entrepreneurship journey was quite a bumpy ride in the beginning. I was not keeping well due to which I suffered a lot. Moreover, in 2010 the cost of Web Hosting and domain name was touching skies that a normal middle-class man could not afford it.
I took this as a challenge and decided to make web hosting & new domain registration affordable for an average person.
In 2012, I founded GoogieHost that offered 10GB storage with 100GB Bandwidth web hosting for just $1 per month!
Okay, so coming to pitfalls, it was in 2014, GoogieHost was running amongst the top performers of the industry but then I was hit by severe health issues.
My illness made me realize that I need to expand my wings. So, in 2016, GoogieHost started its subsidiary Youstable.com, a company which offers premium web hosting service.
Then, Aman Singh joined and with our small but consistent efforts is now again recognized as one of the lead performers of this web hosting industry.
4. What is the main function of Googiehost?
Rajesh Chauhan: As I told you earlier, our main motive was to provide the people with the most affordable yet best-hosting services. GoogieHost does that all.
I think this is the best part for students who want to grow digitally but are not financially sound.
5. Did you start Googiehost with a business mindset or was there some social motive behind it?
Aman Singh: Of course, there was a social motive behind it. We always want the youth to prosper.
Rajesh Chauhan: Our whole business is based on a social motive. There are plenty of hosting providers in the market but they are a bit expensive.
Even if they offer the services at lower prices the service gets limited which is a major drawback.
So, we decide to mitigate the disadvantages by developing a provider which will proffer every essential service that too at very low prices.
GoogieHost was an incredible start as it met every demand and just fits the purpose.
6.P lease tell us about the role of some special people who impacted your journey?
Rajesh Chauhan : (Rajesh and Aman both looking at each other and smiling) We have seen a lot in these ten years. When we say a lot that really means a lot!
That’s absolutely correct that a lot of people influence our livers but there are some special ones who play a major role. My father wanted me to become a Pradhan in my village, but I was never into it. I always followed my passion. Today when I look back I just smile and thank my family and especially my father for igniting a fire in me that compelled me to follow my vision.
Aman Singh: (Chuckles) I seriously do not pay much attention to these things (Winks). My family supported me a lot.
7. Do you consider yourself special, do you believe in your destiny or mission? How do you define your success? Is it satisfactory?
Rajesh Chauhan: I don’t consider myself special. All people are unique, each in its own way. I am good at assembling a team, motivating people, and setting tasks. Became a good manager without ever learning the craft.
(Smiles and continues to speak) There are three main rules in life:
1. Do everything honestly, you can’t build a big business on deception.
2. Say goodbye to the person who once betrayed you.
3. Your environment shapes you, gathering strong people around you.
My Biggest advantages that helped me achieve a lot are:
1. Sociability. I am always ready to communicate, to show initiative in a conversation with a person of any social circle. I am not afraid of the prospect of getting to know each other, talking, and establishing friendly and business relationships. I love to communicate.
2. Originality. I can find different ways to solve problems, different approaches to people. I quickly adapt to changing conditions and am able to quickly resolve difficult situations.
3. Impulsivity. I tend to act on the first impulse, spontaneously. Sometimes this quality helps in solving production problems.
4. Flexibility. I am able to adapt to changing circumstances and act in accordance with them.
At this position, I still cannot define what success is. We realized that we had tasted Success in drops only. There is still a lot to achieve.
Aman Singh: We achieved a lot and as Sir said there is a lot to achieve. Life is a never-ending journey, but yes we are among the top companies. Also, some of the reputed websites recognize GoogieHost as a top performer in the area of free web hosting.
One of these includes Techradar, Hindustan times, ANI, Hubpost, YourStory etc.
8. Did you directly come as an entrepreneur in the market? What were your previous jobs?
Rajesh Chauhan: I had served as a customer service representative for 1 Year and 6 Months in Aegis from August 2011 to January 2013. Later, I joined as a website designer in SYY Staffing and Singhania Education.
As mentioned, I had served as a backend auditor for preparing brief reports of MLAs. I had the privilege of performing such operations under the courtesy of Shri Raj Babbar and Rahul Gandhi of INC.
Aman Singh: I have served as a backend auditor for politician Raj Babbar & Rahul Gandhi in Uttar Pradesh and also worked with Indian political action committee (I-PAC) Prashant Kishor team , Lucknow and played an essential role in preparing backend reports for him.

I think we need a more practical education system.
