How did you get in to the hosting business? and which part of the business do you enjoy most... is it the running of "a" business or do you enjoy the hosting side most and the tech support, dealing with clients etc...
I started up back in 2001 as a reseller and steadily built a client base on a group of free accounts which at the time got the popularity of the site quite high. After that promotion finished after just a few months and the interest being there I opened up full price accounts and squashed the free account signups. The current free users could carry on as free, but I took no more free clients on. Things started rolling and I remember the first larger account sign up
He is still a client now. I sold the business in 2003 to a great individual and was asked to stay on which I accepted. That helped great with the transition and things are practically the same now as before the transition.
Things are still going good and now we have 7 dedicated servers (adding 4 more in the next month hopefully).
The side I love most is the difficult tech support side of things. I like biting in to a new problem that requires a lot of thinking. It's a great feeling when something starts to work.
I also enjoy the business side and helping out running the day to day tasks of the business.
Overall I enjoy the business... it's great, flexible and I talk with many people.
How about you guys?
