We are from beginning a web agency, and we managed from 5 year vps, server of ours clients. And a lot of time clients tell to other friends they are hosted on our server and we decide also to open for all client.

So we open, the first problem is visibility because there is a lot, toomuch company and now is war-price who is the more low cost service, forgitten personal relationship, collaboration, assistance etc...

Relationship, in everybig company doesn't exist.

Yes we are a verylittle company (just 3) in a little city in Italy, we are few client who met me other clients because we are family. And this is the slogan of ours company.

If you have a problem, you called me or my collaborator and we fix. We are so flexible.this is our receipt!

6 years is a great point under customers' eyes and they will like going with hosting companies have good history.

I agree, for website owners, they always want to have VPS with reasonable prices but I also think dedicated server services will be a trend in the near future :D

We started in business in Aug 15, 1997.
At the time we launched what is now the principal .pt and host registrar brand in Portugal (later sold to a company from india, and now property of a French Investment Group). And all happen because i bought a new iMac after Steve Jobs get back to Apple we wanted to host a few websites and there was almost no companies offering web services. Later we start using iTools from  and we started developing websites in the iWeb app (those were good old times).

The company was officially started in 2004, before then web hosting was being resold as part of the web development company, but even then for the first years it was really only marketed to existing clients and friends of the owners.

The problem with most newer hosting companies is they are just leasing hardware from other hosting companies. They have a few slow months and all of sudden their servers are reclaimed by the primary hosting company and wiped causing all data to be gone. We hear these horror stories every month. Once established, most hosting companies begin buying 100% of their hardware and while servers can still go down from not paying colo fees and bandwidth, all data is retained.

We have been very lucky in business and never had a single billing problem, but we also make sure we keep 12+ months operating expenses available out of profits. Which means we could have every single client cancel and still be in business for 12 months at a minimum. This is something most hosting companies or companies in general can not due.

I've had an idea for a while that I think it could be cool if there was some sort of objective web hosting accreditation company where an organization can apply for accreditation and based on a variety of factors that are evaluated about the businesses (length of service, business plan, availability of liquid assets, etc) a trust score or something can be provided to prospective customers so perhaps new businesses have a fair change for success and far less customers end up getting screwed over.

Of course there is a handful of reasons why this likely wouldn't work / be possible but it's nice to think so.
