Jason Nickerson: The Changing Web Hosting Business Model
Yet there are still stories of the “Summer Host”, small startup hosting companies that usually pop up at the beginning of the summer, indicating a younger and less-seasoned entrepreneurial group. They have a bad reputation of creating a business but then abandoning their user base and company due to lack of resources or technical know-how as the summer draws to a close and they return to school.
This is a good and easy read on the state of hosting, even more interesting since it is from cPanel, I have to imagine that there will be a lot of investment in innovation to be a part of the new cloud focused world.
Also love the term “summer host” which definitely explains some experiences I had years ago.
