    Youngest Host Master ? search

    Hi folks,

    Following on from the recent Liam[UK] and Trexhost[US] farces.

    I thought it might be interesting to find:

    The Yongest Host Master [not web master]

    Any Nominations ?

    ps. any nationality, does not need to be US,UK or even english speaking.

    Mothers? Uhh... what the heck are you on about?

    I was 13 when I got in to the web hosting world, I know a guy that was 12 (lol).

    Hmmmm, if I have a child, I rather name the a web hosting account to him so he/she could be the youngest. BTW I'm in 20's not yet just starting to learn.

    why brag about how young you are. Personally I think you need a certain type of maturity that you won't experience until you hit college or maybe high school. Young hosts should just be booted. Here are my reason:
    1. They are too young and not experienced enough to handle both the know how and the customer relations
    2. They will get no where, what is a kid going to do with the $20 he gets a month of allowance?
    3. They don't have worldly values and morals, to them it's all just a big game
    4. They are cocky bastards who brag how young they are; further promoting their lack of maturity
    5. Why trust a kid who's never had a job in his life or never felt what it is like to work hard for money; kids 12 or 13 probably have never labored beyond taking out the trash

    can i get an amen?

    my favorite saying when it comes to situations like these: "don't push your luck kid"

    I was pretty young myself when I first ventured into web hosting, around 15/16 or so. But that wasn't "owning" a web hosting business, more so working for small companies and helping out to learn more about the industry.

    He will be back, if not WHT seems boring for me though without his posts with much humor. Anyway how about me Brian.

    lol, i see allot of young people playing "hosts" from their bedrooms..

    I say good for them, to serious people who don't do any of this, 1Tb diskspace/bandwidth and unlimited everything, blah blah blah and all that crap....

    Overselling is tacky, anyone offering it and doesn't have the system architecture in place to support it are a complete joke..
