Lets write a book on hosting!


After reading a previous thread, where no one could really find a good book, I say we all get together and write a book. Publish through Wrox or O'Reilly if we could, and make $20 or $30. (total)


Notice to Consumers
Thread Summary Please be aware that every offer has limits beyond what is displayed in the thread. You should visit the site advertising and read any Terms of Service or Acceptable Use Policy they have in place. If you can't find answers on how they measure what you're purchasing, ask. If the offer or request doesn't regard some type of hosting, you still need to research beyond what’s printed in the ad.
  • Research any provider to know what limits are in place, especially with any offer concerning disk space and/or bandwidth. These are generally defined in the TOS or AUP.
  • Read provider reviews. If you find no reviews, create a thread and ask for others' first-hand experience with the provider.
  • If you're unsure on the exact details of an offer - ask. Simply respond to this thread and ask the provider for clarification.

I'm willing to help with this, I've been searching for a subject to write a book on, to help fund my trip through college (1 class, $900).

I've been told I'm a good writer, and I defently have the knowledge on hosting - so yeah, count me in... Just PM me with any more details or with your aim/msn name to discuss this further.

I'd help. I may not be a host but I am familiar with the industry.

I'd be willing to help as well, primarily as an editor and/or offer a few tips on design principles for successful websites.

Hmm I'm starting to think this is really quite a good idea - have 6-7 maybe 8 people working on different parts of the book, each person to what they're good at.

Just hope I'm picked to help write it , I have way too much free time on my hands; and a lot of experience in the hosting biz.

I believe there are a lot of ebooks on the industry, not sure how good they are but I don't think there are any real published books about web hosting that are out now.

Published would be the best, in my opinion - can you curl up with a good eBook, next to a fire? - maybe everyone on WHT can pitch something in.. Obviously not any "trade secrets" but defently some good material that would help people get into business.

Can I just say, one more time, that I REALLY want to be a "full-time writer" on this book?

I think the main advantage to writing a book would be that it would have a broad range of opinions in it and tie together the community by having something it produced. I agree with the fact that it should be published -- something tangible to offset the millions of bytes of data we're reading now. We don't need trade secrets, but more, suggestions to help develop your own secrets.

I don't want to IM anyone since I don't want to head this. I was bringing it up as an idea if iNet or someone else wanted to front it.
