Thank you for your feedback.
We are always working on new additional services, products and contests that attract not just web hosting companies themselves but also potential clients. Every community is looking for a healthy mix of people who participate and stay active. We are no exception.
Web hosting is not a popular subject by itself so the general population will only get involved when the need for web hosting arises. For example, someone looking for hosting who decides to do proper homework will most likely come across a community like ours, ask a question, or maybe even post a Web Hosting Request
. We cater toward both web hosting professionals and enthusiasts. Other than that, I don't think any other community specializing in web hosting will see a ratio that will be much different from ours.
Advertising is as much essential to us as it is to you. While it helps pay for our costs, writers, developers, it also helps your company to get its name out.
