    Quick check on how the market is doing!!

    Ok guys, this gets asked every so often so i thought it was time to ask again.
    How is your business doing right now, any increases or decreases in signups? Are reseller packages still the most popular packages??

    Personally my business has been pretty quiet lately

    Hello
    The past seven days have been fairly quiet but the 7 days before that were our busiest for a long time.

    Fortunately, we have a big domain registration business which has a life of its own and just seems to grow regardless.

    Our business was a little slow at the beginning of the month but has picked up quite nicely this last week.

    I don't run a hosting business. But my web design business has seriously picked up last few weeks. I've started developing sites for all kinds of businesses. Jobs are flying in left right and centre. I'm seriously not looking forward to the spell where I won't have any work coming in. Which is why I'm saving a major portion of my income for the rainy days.

    The run from now to December is usually pretty good. Last year was a bit slower than the year before for obvious reasons around September (but there was a boost in November that pretty much evened things out).

    You should expect good numbers till the end of the year, with the next 'slump' due around January through March (just when all the Xmas bills arrive for most people).

    March till summer (US) picks up again, before dropping off till around September again.

    There you go - a year in a nutshell.

    Business is good. Stopped receiving new orders last week. Reopened the order form 2 days ago and a good steady flow of new members coming into the .COMmunity.

    It's not a get-rich-quick business. It's a get-rich-slow business.

    Where will your business be in 3 years from now? Dare to dream.

    We also did notice a massive slowdown period during early september and Im pretty sure it was the because of 9-11. The last 2 weeks have been great though.

    On hostapproval.com I every now and then check which category is getting the most views and its Reseller Hosting all the way. It is becoming very dominant.

    The Multiple Domain/Bulk Reseller model is a great place to be. I don't care what the top end of town thinks.

    I can't really complain, things have been rather steady latley, considering the fact that we are still rather new when compared to most hosts in the industry .

    I like it slow and steady. Too fast is no good.
