You are right about it being an easy business to get into. Anyone with a brain who knows how to use it can get started. What I'm seeing mostly is the way to make it in this business is by doing volume.
That not true. Any business who is doing volumes will always
get more sales but as you mentioned will they thrive for the long run?
Hosting if anything tend to lack businesses that offer more than the "flashing lights". If you can offer something else better/not that anywhere else offers (or very few does). At a competitive rate then you should have a good start.
From there you just need to focus on marketing that to the right people
. Add patient, improvements, and efforts and you should be in business.
