Increasing revenues in a competitive web hosting market

Despite a dot-com fallout on the tails of overly optimistic forecasts, the web hosting industry continues to grow. The challenge these days for many web hosts, however, is to capture a piece of this growing market and increase revenues in the process.

With the Internet said to be the fastest growing sector in the history of business, the web hosting industry has experienced a massive expansion in only a few years. Fierce competition is already the norm in what is still a fledgling industry.

With the potential to open a new company with only a few dollars, web hosting is considered the ultimate start-up business, allowing very small hosts to rub shoulders with large, established IT companies. At the same time, unseasoned businesses can find themselves desperate to grow their customer base, and end up competing based on price instead of quality.
