Selling hosting companies??
Lately, I have seen many hosting companies were selling their clients and companies.
Why is it happening lately? Hosting owners are loosing monies?

Alot of times it is not a loss in money but a change in the owner's life. Most of the hosting companies selling I have seen are one to two staff gigs. They sell off because they don't have the time, or they have decided to change the business they are in.

A mixture of both the above and the fact that more and more people are looking to buy hosting companies that have been arround for a year or two. They think that they will have nothing to do exept watch the cash flow in. It's not like that so they sell the company and it all starts again. At the momment its almost a lose, lose situation for the hosting buisiness and with more people being able to buy servers cheaply and use them for hosting its getting even harder. I'm not saying it's impossible to make money, it just takes lots and lots of work."Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
