Even though we are growing, of course our bottom line is affected by the recession.

In some ways yes, in some ways no. Primarily we have seen an influx of customers expanding their web presence as they deviate away from your typical brick and mortar business. Other customers have unfortunately migrated away as they seek cost savings. Many loyal customers eventually return however as they then realize the statement "you pay for what you get" continues to be true in an ever increasingly competitive environment.
We have been around since 1996 and yes it affected us in some ways. Clients that had "extra" stuff, that was not a priority to their established business, scaled back some. More compacting and growing out server space was done instead of just expanding to new servers. Everyone wanted to see where corners could be cut and where monthly charges could go down some. New clients want the most bang for their buck. Doesn't matter what part of the country or world people are from, it has been a rough spell and everyone still has bills and needs to eat. BUT if you provide a service that people need then there is business to be made. Main thing is to treat every customer the best you can and make them feel important and worth your time. In the end every dollar matters to the bottom line.
We have been hosting and developing websites since 2005-2006 and haven't seen a decline because of the economy. With the internet being the new marketplace, I think things will stay steady and hopefully grow more.
