    Picked out provider to sell SSL Certs.
    Picked out Online Site Builder for clients to use.

    What drove your decision to get back in? I sold my company in September, and just decided to get back into it fulltime myself (I helped a couple of other companies out in the interim). I chose to come back because I enjoy the industry so much - just curious to hear your reason.

    Reason why I am getting back into the business is I love everything about web hosting. I love helping customers, and I love making customers happy by getting the web site up. Sure it can be a lot of stress, but at the same time I wake up every morning thinking how much fun it is. Yes it can be very long hours (18+ at times), but it is worth it to me.

    No I will not be selling this business any time soon.
    I am back....

    That list you made should seriously be made sticky for new hosts, I wish I had covered that list right away, but instead it took years to do it. I've been at it since 1995 so I can put my $.02 that it is a pretty comprehensive list.

    If somebody want to make it a sticky, then perhaps you can also put the estimate prices beside it, so the new people will have a rough accurate estimate... - Never pay more for your logo!
