We haven't forgotten our roots

We understand how vital it is that startups establish an effective online business as soon as they can. With many businesses deriving up to 40% of all sales from internet websites, we know that the future is the internet.

However, new startup companies face a multitude of challenges in the early days, and often find it difficult to understand the process of setting up a business online. What service provider to use? What products are best? What do we need exactly?

At Netcetera, we work very closely with a variety of new companies, offering special pricing and promotions for our cloud portfolio. We help you plan, deploy and run a cloud customised just for your app or website. We ensure you get the solution that best suits your requirements, allowing you to focus on your core business, rather than managing your infrastructure.

Solutions for Startups

Our range of internet and hosting solutions, the can-do attitude of the Isle of Man and its Government, coupled with our close network of business partners provide the ideal environment for any technology startup.

We recognise the critical phases of any startup: conception, funding, development, testing and launch; all critical for the success of your service. Netcetera understands these challenges and we have developed a range of solutions to assist startup companies.

The Isle of Man is the perfect place for your business to grow and flourish. It is no coincidence the Isle of Man Government’s key marketing message is “Where you can!”. Choose the Isle of Man, Where you can with Netcetera.

Benefits of Netcetera

Netcetera will work closely with our startup customers to understand their business, their markets, prospective customers and their growth plans. Once we have determined these key factors, we can work with you to design and develop the most appropriate technical solution. We can consider things such as budget, platform choice, high availability considerations, scalability and other key areas such as information security and compliance.

Wherever possible we can provide trials and demos of the various technical components to ensure the proposed solution meets the needs of your business and delivers the performance you require. If you have developers working on your project, our technical team can liaise directly with your platform developers to ensure the proposed solution meets all of their criteria.

Throughout all the early stages of your project, our team will be on-hand to provide as much assistance as possible to aide you with your project.

If your project requires specialist development or platform knowledge that is outside the scope of what we can deliver, we can recommend a number of partners who will be able to assist with your requirements.

Incubation schemes

For approved startup businesses, Netcetera can offer a number of technical incentives through a kind of technical incubation system. As part of the consultation phase, we can provide no-obligation free trials on a range of products and services including Cloud Hosting, Dedicated Servers, Colocation and VoIP PBX systems. We can provide these trials at no cost, or at a reduced rate, subject to authorisation within the business. There is no set criteria as to who qualifies for the incubation service. After all, every business is different. We will vet each customer, see whether they have engaged the Isle of Man Government/DED and that their business plan is genuine.

The aim of the incubation service is to ease the burden, from both a technical and cost perspective during the early stages of your business. We would hope our relationship will grow and we can assist your business as it grows and becomes a success.


Netcetera works closely with a number of companies and organisations that may all be of assistance to your business. These include:

  • Accountancy and Tax specialists
  • Investors and “Angel” networks
  • Serviced offices and commercial letting agents
  • Fiduciary, Corporate Services and Trust specialists
  • E-Gaming/i-Gaming Licensing firms
  • The Isle of Man Government Department of Economic Development
