For those who have been in the hosting business for the last 10 years, last 5 years, last 2 years, or even last few months...
How is the business growing for you? I started back in 2001 and right from day 1 there were quite a few people showing interest... that was in the free accounts of course
After a while I changed things around a lot and the business was more known among different countries and things just started to happen. Sometimes 2 - 5 people a day were signing up.
If you have started recently, how are things going for you? Do you see a nice amount of signups? or do you believe they are only going to the more established well known hosts?
I believe there is still room to start but it seems you need to start differently then 5 years ago. If I was to start again, I wouldnt just start up like before... I would plan more and have a lot more preperation in place and then target a niche I feel could do well.
So, how are the new start up's doing? and is it harder or easier then you expected to get clients?
