many peoples find themselves asking how to be a successful web host
godaddy's domain was registered in 1999 i think the answer to most peoples question's is right there

i do believe 20 years from today my hosting company
will be a multi-billion dollar machine

patience is the key not high end advertisement ...

Good luck! This would have been much easier to achieve had you started 10 years ago but still, you have to start somewhere, right?

Probably best not to set such high goals though (multiple billions) as you're setting yourself up for defeat.

You've watched too many Hollywood movies I'm afraid. If the answer is really in age, then how come I can find plenty of hosts with 10+ years of experience who are just...existing without gaining too many customers.
And, as mentioned, its way easier to make a fortune when you are a pioneer in some niche. You can try and start a hosting company right now and I guarantee you that the chances you become a millionaire in 10 years without significant investments along the way are pretty low (if I'm mistaking tho I hope I still get an invitation to one of your yacht parties)

I personally don't think it is an achievable goal anymore as someone else mentioned perhaps 10 or so years go had you started then, maybe.

The market is oversaturated now, I'll be hppy simply if I can keep my existing client base happy, attract some new clientbase and make enough to at least pay the server bills etc.

I am fortunate enough to have a full time job so this is a hobby allbeit a serious hobby.

Yeah the first 4 years was rough, a couple years in between where nightmares. All in all I think we will all be rich once Godaddy chokes and we know they will.

way off the mark. i started in 1999 and in that time i am making a comfortable living, but no where near an unrealistic Multi-Billion business.
you do know that web hosting is not a get rich quick business. it take time and a lot of effort and money to build up a clientbase and good relationship with providers.

You better start setting yourself aside from the rest, then, because right now, your company is a dime a dozen. Do you have a plan to grow and have something unique that any other web host doesn't provide?
Godaddy made their name by being the first at selling cheap domain names and advertised the hell out of it. (Nascar advertising, TV advertising etc.) THAT's how they became big. Not because they had patience.

I believe in 20 years from now probably webhosting will be dead. If you started let's say 20 years ago, yes I believe it, but now there are too many web hosting companies...But again, everything is possible but don't think Hollywood is the same like reality. Good luck !!!

I wouldn't say web hosting is dead, but it will be very different, that's for sure.

You just have to think 20 and even 10 years back a small time host could never afford a VPS, now you can get a VPS for just as much as a reseller account, so i would say in a few years time Dedicated servers will be just as cheap

People would still need a "middle man", because I don't see people all of a sudden be so tech savvy that they could set up a dedicated server, no matter how easy to use the control panels are..
Control panels will get easier to use, but hackers will also get smarter..
