I joined web hosting talk today, as I have been lurking for a while, being a web developer and also managing my own inhouse servers for a while, being a bit of a Linux geek.
As my customers have always asked for my recommendation on hosting providers, I was considering getting my own dedicated server and providing hosting that way, but then 'discovered' reselling, which frankly seems an easier way of achieving the same end, i.e. I choose the product and I support my clients, and they are happy.
Anyway, I though it was time to join WHT for the honest reason, that if I manage to write some sensible responses to peoples queries, in 7 days time I may be able to promote my reseller hosting in the advertising section. Which seems a reasonable deal to me.
So I'm off to find some forum posts that I can seriously help on.
