50,000 web hosting providers all competing for the honour of
hosting your website.
Every day dozens of new web hosting compaines are launching and
struggling to get your attention and your web hosting business.
Even though the web hosting industry is really quite young, it
is certainly one of the most competetive and cut-throat
industries on the web today. Yet the growth of this marketplace
is assured for the forseeable future.

websites are launched and need to be hosted somewhere online.
This figure continues to grow and grow.
In fact the current monthly count for the number of searches at
Yahoo for the term 'web hosting' is a whopping 2,149,851. That's
right, over 2 million!
Also just recently it was reported that the popularity of blogs
was seeing tens of thousands of new blogs launched each and

number of domain names is estimated to be Networksolutions.

percent of the domain name marketplace.
The .net top level domain currently holds just over an
estimated 10 percent of the domain name marketplace.
The good news for web hosting and domain name customers is that
incredible deals have become available as competition increases
among web hosting providers.
In fact the price of web hosting has plumeted to just under $10
per month for a quality service. Domain names that cost up to
$35 just a fews years ago can now be bought for as little as

and their customers. The quality of service continues to grow.
The new web hosting providers must impress their customers to
compete with more established organisations.
There has never been a better time to find a web hosting
provider and establish an internet presence of your own.
