    I would sure like to hear an educated guess on how many actual hosting companies there are, forget the resellers since that would really be impossible to find out.
    Everyone is entitled to MY opinion.

    Well, there are 274 million results on Google for “web hosting,” so perhaps divide that by 100 for all the sites that aren’t hosts themselves and be done with it. So, what do we have? 274,000 hosts.

    If we tought every hosting offering web-sites whom have branded/private nameservers then it must be i think million.
    But please do not forget there are about 1billion internet users at world. Even if there are 1 million hosting services, comeon every 1 of 1k internet user own a hosting service?
    I believe the count will range between Min.30k-Max.50k .

    math isn't your strongpoint huh? 274,000,000 divided by 100 = 2,740,000
    All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
