I can't imagine a hosting company winning. It's not a very original busisness idea really is it. At the end of the day they can choose who they want and it wouldn't be illegal.. they're giving away free advertisng for christs sake.

Hosting is a great business model. It generates a recurring revenue stream, where you can easily and safely build infrastructure underneath the client base. This allows the business to grow with confidence. Your client base can be anyone with a valid credit card, and from any corner of the planet. Your product is also instantly delivered to your clients.
True, hosting isn't a glamorous business model, but we're the ones supplying the picks and shovels to the dreamers out there in the gold fields. We all know who made the most money in the Gold rush days, and it wasn't the ones looking for the gold.
I personally don't think much of Branson. He's too showy for my taste, but none the less, he is very successful, and what he does works well for him.
