The Hosting Industry - Survey for Hosting Providers
 
Hello everyone,

I’m doing a short survey of Hosting Providers, so I can get some insight into the Hosting industry. Your participation as a web host is appreciated, the survey can be found below:

https://surveyhero.com/c/96dc948a

It should take no more than 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

I look forward to reading your responses and getting more insight into the industry from an array of small, medium and larger sized Hosting providers.

Thanks,
Kieran.

Plenty of market research into niche markets and finding the correct provider

Thanks for your feedback, unfortunately Survey Monkey doesn’t provide what I need on the free plan. I am researching into offer options to collect the data.

I would not have needed to make a new post, if you read my ‘Mod Notice’. And you still appear to not have read it, I would appreciate you did, or I will get agsin need to repost, as readers are struggling to find the right info in the thread.

@Kieran, actually not only did I not see the mod notice, but your threat was producing some kind of error, it was not possible to display. Gotta be some kind of cross-bug between vBulletin and vBSEO plugin (both of which will soon be eliminated).

Please submit a support ticket here and tell me what you'd like to do, so that I can help.

best way to ask admins/mods to change anything is to use the report button on the post you want changed
