    Seriously: I don`t know. But why not ask:

    how many potential webhosting customers are there in the web?

    answer = millions



    support=profit

    I would have to say it would be a MUCH higher number for one man shows.

    It sounds like one-man-show is necessarily worse than "companies" (sorry if I'm wrong).

    I had experience with many hostings, and now I have several sites - each one on different hosting, and I would say that a score between one-man-show and companies is 50:50.

    one man show, goes to sleep, your server is all.... "alone in the dark©" dont even think about what happens if he decides to take a 2-week long vacation heheh and i personally think that most of the hosts @ WHT are less than 5 ppl, but some of them are doing very well so i guess at least 3 tech's are needed to provide some sort of 24/7 ( no way they can provide this but lets say 14h per day= its ok for 9$ per month i guess)

    When I say "one-man-show" I mean at least 3 people.
