Podcast 33 - Hosting Market Growing | New GoDaddy Girl Commercial
Did you know the Web hosting market is on the rise? It's true, and we'll have to numbers to prove it on this week's edition of the [url=http://www.webhostingshow.com]Web Hosting Show[/url]. Speaking of things that rise, I'll also give my review of the new "Internet Only" version of GoDaddy's newest commercial. Oh you didn't know? The one and only voice of the Web hosting world is now on the air and ready for download.

This news comes right from [url=http://news.netcraft.com/archives/2005/10/04/october_2005_web_server_survey.html]Netcraft[/url]:
In the October 2005 survey we received responses from 74,409,971 sites, an increase of 2.68 million sites from the September survey. The large gain makes 2005 the strongest year ever for Internet growth, as the web has added 17.5 million sites, easily surpassing the previous annual mark of 16 million during the height of the dot-com boom in 2000.
So are we entering a new hosting bubble? With the growth of blogging and podcasting, and folks becoming tired of free hosting solutions I can see some of the reason for the growth in the Web hosting industry. There are a lot of startups and expansions of old companies going up every single day as well. Right now is an exciting time for the world of Web hosting and I am more than happy to be here to see it all.
It seems like Windows servers are gaining a little more mind share as well. Windows servers gained 0.75 percent, while Apache-based servers fell by 0.67 percent. Linux flavored Web hosting is still the main choice by a long lead right now, but it is nice to see that Windows is moving up by a little at least.
Now I would not really consider myself a media review guy. If I like something, I'll say I like it. If I don't like something, I'll say that I don't like it. Commercials are just not really on my radar most of the time. With that said, I always like to see what new commercials the folks at GoDaddy come out with. So let me take off my Web hosting guru hat and put on my hat of a commercial reviewer.
What do I think of the new [url=http://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/superbowl05/landing.asp?isc=gppg0105&se=%2B]"Internet Only"[/url] car wash ad? Oh, is it ever good. Then again, I just really like Candice Michelle. Lets forget about the thought of wearing a guru or a commercial reviewer hat. As a red blooded American male, I am telling you this commercial is well worth watching over and over again.The Web Hosting Show - The Voice of the Web Hosting World
