Yes its funny how everyone is saying the start of the week when the weekend is chaos for us. I have also noticed the beginning of each new month is hectic too. But I never complain when business is good :p
Between the 5th and the 10th of every month is pretty heavy (doesn't matter what day) and then outside of that it's usually the beginning of the week (Mon, Tue) - I would think it has to do with people getting back to work and getting around to what they had planned on doing all weekend
I would guess it also has to due with target audience. If you are getting it during the beginning of the week you may be dealing with more businesses, small business, sole proprietor or other. That being said if you are getting hits on the weekend it may more than likely be non business personal hosting. Also note I have zero stats to back this up, also there are plenty of variables in stuff like this. So it's more of a best guess. The same thing goes for more sales in the early to mid part of the month. Businesses tighten up at month end to make sure they fit withing their budget, etc.
I'd say the busiest times are during the week and not a specific day it's always changing. This is probably due to posts on various forums and recommendations where and when they show up. Someone posts on a busy forum all these people from x host should move to us we might have more than a day where it's mostly search engine sign ups or word of mouth.
