I'm not going to disclose any numbers for our company, however I will add my encouragement to those that are in the business to keep at it. It can be a very profitable business if you run it right - but then, ANY business is profitable if run correctly

I left my corporate job back in early 2000 and have never looked back. We are a 100% debt free company, always have been. As always, the idea is to work smarter, not harder - that usually means having a stellar employee team that are given enough rope to do their job and make decisions as needed!

Indeed it can be profitable but getting it right can be very hard.

Very true - especially for people who are just starting out.

I can tell you with absolute certainty that if I was only starting out in web hosting now, I'd not even attempt it and instead invest my time in other ventures. The web hosting industry is a saturated market. That's not to say that you can't do well in it, but it's definitely saturated. Web Design is almost as saturated as really there's no degree or certifications required to say that you're a web host or a web designer. It's taken pretty much at face value.

If starting out, developing a niche or a dedication to a certain product line is almost a requirement. There'll always be giants such as GoDaddy and even Google's Web hosting venture, but many people choose to avoid the nightmares that come with large businesses and instead stay with smaller hosting companies.

As long as you provide good service at a reasonable price, people will continue to sign up for web hosting. When you put everything together, there's money to be made, but the days of starting for less than $100 are quickly fading into the past (thankfully).

It is then i decided would be the time to look at VPS so i was in charge. I found 1 and i wished i had done this years before. been at this point since and even managed to get some old clients back.
Woow.... You're really GREAT person, have great spirit. Yes, never give up is the key of success. So, keep on going and build fresh innovation and idea. Good luck for you.

Web hosting business can earn your living, however, this is a crowded sphere so you must think hard and try hard to be ahead of your competition.
