Lots and lots of time, but it will pay off in the end. In the beginning sometimes you gotta spend money to earn more money in the long run. Starting a hosting company can be pretty rough at first. Your dealing with getting people to notice you and getting people to stay after you have them. Time and focusing on customer service will help you succeed.

the entry is a bit difficult because of the congestion up front, and the need for increasingly better hardware for performance customer-wise and for your own company (like power consumption/efficiency etc) after that is building a reliable enough network that can put you above your competition. then how you market yourself.

the industry is interesting because of how fast things go, constant research needed or you'll be left behind. like any other business you need to get ahead of the curve, although a lot of people mention how saturated the market is at the same time the potential market is still big and mainstream exposure of the industry is increasing so more and more people understand its value.

at the end of the day, it is a good way to make money and its similar to most business in the sense that a product/service itself and some knowledge of it wont get you through. because it tends to be a bit more technical getting through is harder and how and where you do your service/product placement is also vital, but the potential is there given time and constant research

It's hard, it's not easy. It takes time and dedication. If you have that you will succeed.

Be optimistic about future!
Thats probabely the English way of defining: Hosting Business

The one who moved mountain was the one who started collecting little rocks.
Don't get panic and disappointed if you do not sell well and do not be proud of yourself if you have some customers! trying to be successful is a thing and maintaining it is the other.

You can make money from hosting, but it is not a get rich quick business. It takes hard work and dedication and quite a few sleepless nights.

This business is one of the most competitive on the IT market. Very many providers today are offering cheap hosting solutions and it's very easy to get what are you looking for, though the quality and reliability very often could be a subject of question.
That's why in the beginning of the hosting business it's very hard job to get a result, but after some different investments and a good connection with customers you can see the grow. Yes, customer relations are very important here as well as a quality services.

It will take a lot of your time and energy to get it started. It takes a lot of patience and focus to get it going. More importantly, you need all that hard work plus business creativity to get it soaring. Passion in the tech world will be VERY useful.

Basically, you start it up just like you would in any other business...only with less capital

It is fun helping companies get their company online and setup. Even more fun when they engage in E-commerce and you see them start making money online. It is great seeing the joy it brings to know you helped another company grow their business.

It has been going downhill as an industry due to the anything for a dollar crowde. Sad thing is that the tactic works even as bad as it is to do such marketing and quite dishonest.

The secret to success is to not depend on clients around the globe and market your local area. You will find it way less flooded with the anything for a dollar crowd and it is easier to build a rapport with the clients. You get clients that are more apt to stay with you longer and not so eager to jump ship just to see if the grass is greener somewhere else.

It does take a lot of time, effort, and even some amount of money to get yourself off the ground. It's not a business where you're going to be able to make money off of it overnight, you're going to need to realize that you'll need to lose money to make money.

Unfortunately, most people think this is a get rich overnight industry. 4 out of 5 startups fail within the first year.

In the summer, kids attempt to become the next "CEO" while school is out, then when school is back in session the "businesses" go flop.
