    Very nice post.

    I have to agree with all of your points. The most common mistake is not setting the right price. Many new host think of there pockets no and worry paying for there cheap reseller.

    Hosting companies do make allot of mistakes, one that I notice a quite often is when a new hosting company posts an advertisement in a forum's market place they expect that they will get customers right off the bat. This is far from true... statics show that it takes a client 7 views in order to go with a hosting company that they find in a forum. Which if they make a customer in the first 2 days then they are doing better than so many others. The reality is, a hosting company is not going to do the work for it's self, and definitely not at this time with all the new hosts coming into the market daily.

    Basically, you are gonna have to work if you want to make it. You can't run your company on auto pilot and yet have a great company. The business world doesn't work that way, and life does not work that way. I believe that every hosting company out their who has a good strong team, rather it be 2 or 40 and also has the dedication required in today's market can make it in the industry as yet another good hosting company.

    Common Mistakes:

    1.Not identifying known major competitors
    2.Underestimating competitive strength and potential
    3.Failing to demonstrate what makes you better
    4.Having no strategy for counteracting current (or emerging) competition
    5.Assuming you have no competition
    6.Failing to show an awareness of competitor’s plans in the market and their business
    cycles.
    In my opinion, competitive analysis is the most important factor to consider when setting up a hosting business. A business owner should be able to see very clearly how he is going to conquer the market. It's like going to a battle fully-armed and ready.

    I completely agree with this post, business owners going into ANY market should analyse their competitors when developing their business.
