    Wanted to form a hosting company - found WHT.. Formed a hosting company - read more about hosting companies on WHT and decided not to host any longer.

    Well that's the gist of it - I had more reasons as well but they all compounded to the same scenario - focus on other things

    Our company was up and running before I found and joined WHT. My life has not been the same ever since (trying to figure out if that's a good thing or a bad thing!).

    Yeh, we are the same as alot of the providers here. We made the company and stumbled onto WHT and found it to be an invaluable resource!

    I love WHT

    Obviously from everybody's posts here, WHT didn't interest the majority into starting their own hosting company.

    A good question to ask may be what inspired everybody to start their own host?

    And what (if any) research did you do before starting your hosting company.

    The Inspiration
    Basically, I wanted to provide "no bull crap" hosting.
