Mitch's Four Holiday Hosting Wishes
Usually when the holidays start rolling around, everybody makes a wish list of what they would like to get. From new clothes to the newest gadgets, there are a lot of things covered by a lot of people. My holiday [url=http://www.webhostingshow.com]Web Hosting Show[/url] wish list is a little different. My wish list is pointed directly to the Web hosting industry in hope that they might listen and change. I don't want them to change just for me, I want them to change to make the Web hosting world better for each and every one of you as well.
4. I wish for GoDaddy.com to offer a better Web hosting experience.
I have been nothing but disappointed with my hosting experience at GoDaddy.com. I had heard good things from folks in the past about it, so I had to try it out to see what all the fuss was about. I will give them a little credit, as far as bandwidth, disk space and uptime goes, I am very happy. Where I have a problem is the control panel and missing features. The control panel that GoDaddy.com uses sucks, there is no denying that. It is one thing to rule a market, it is another thing to be the best thing in the market. GoDaddy.com might be on the way to ruling the virtual Web hosting world, but they are by far not the best option out there.
4. I wish for Web hosting jargon to become more simple for folks.
Ok, so maybe this wish isn't so easy to achieve. I just feel like a lot of people are scared off by the idea of Web hosting because some of the words are confusing. To really master and learn the ins and outs of the Web hosting industry, one has to almost learn a different language. POP3, FTP, MySQL, these should be services that work - but I shouldn't have to know them by such confusing names. As I said before, this wish probably won't come true. It somebody can do it though, they will have my total support.
2. I wish for more competition within the Web hosting industry.
Well, there are hundreds, if not thousands of Web hosts out there today. Maybe competition isn't the problem. I just wish more folks would realize that there are more choices other than the top names in the business. I hope that a few more of these smaller companies get a stronger grab onto the Web hosting market. The more top companies there are, the more they will be competing for your business and your money. That is definitely a good thing.
1. I wish the Web hosting industry would catch up to the rest of us.
When it comes to innovation, the Web hosting industry isn't exactly number one. It seems like with words like RSS and Web 2.0, the world of Web hosting is in the dark ages. As somebody who jumps often from the leading technology stories to the leading Web hosting stories out there, I am disappointed. I am disappointed that more Web hosts and hosting related Web sites aren't trying something new or something different. You can only release press releases for so long before the public gets tired of you.
