I think you need to build a good company culture, that is one of the most important elements to providing "outstanding" customer service, and all the good things that follow.

Well, according to me a 10/10 web hosting company will be the one whose customer service representatives are friendly. When you discuss anything with them, they provide informative explanations instead of just yes or no answers.

I can understand that you may want instant setup, but given affordable pricing already, why do you insist on coupons? It's already affordable!

Because people mostly go for lower price. It does not matter that lower price usually means worse service. In order to make people interested in their GOOD service, providers issue additional coupons, even though their pricing is already affordable. Just my opinion, though.

Always go above and beyond, even with the smallest request, and treat your customers like you would want to be treated. Talk to them as if they were standing in front of you and give them respect. This makes all the difference, specially when communicating via email/chat and you lose that personal touch/connection with the customer. Make it personal and regain that edge once again.

Do this, and even someone that is absolutely, positively, and completely angry about your service will think to themselves.. "That rep/staff member was so nice to me I can't even be angry anymore.." And even if they don't stay with your service after the fact, at least they will not go on a rampage and badmouth your service every chance they get. They will simply move on.
Totally agree to this.

Always go above and beyond the call of duty. It can be rewarding. And I might add that doing something out of the blue for a customer like sending a ticket and just asking them how their week is going goes along way sometimes. Don't ever loose the personal perspective in customer service. Once you loose that, everything starts to fall downhill.

look at hostgator - once good, now horrible

Think different, This is the rule. Always think whats different i will add to the market, why the customer will choose my company instead of others? away from support, uptime, ..etc I believe that the thing number one to look different is to build personal relationships with customers maybe with phone calls, personal emails, helping them out,..etc.

I'll answer your question with another question: If that weren't the case, why would anyone want to start with an annual plan?

I think an exceptional web host would stay abreast of any new technologies that would better enable its clients to outperform, outclass, and outlast the competition, whether it be an easier control panel, faster deployment of hosting resources (Shared, Cloud, VPS , Dedicated), easier migration tools, managed services and quick issue resolution. This would empower the client and create the comfort zone that is so highly sought after when paying money for services delivered over the web.
