As a website consultant I have seen that many of my clients would wait for the last day when the opt in for renewing their Web Hosting Subscription. Despite the fact that many of these Web Hosting Providers have a Auto Renew kind of feature enabled, yet, it remains something which many of my clients do not prefer. They cite different reasons - Privacy, unease of sharing credit card information and even what if they close out or go rogue! - yeah, weird ones too come across! I, however, on the other hand, always recommend that you keep your hosting update with the payments to avoid the last minute hassles. Though almost all good web hosting providers do give you a grace period - wherein they keep your stuff with them safe before they start purging out your files etc, still, I see no reason for anyone to wait and risk missing out the payments to them. So let me be straightforward and ask you - When do you decide to make the next payment to your Web Hosting Provider? I mean - a. Do you use their auto renew feature (if they have one) OR b. Do you make a payment manually before the last date for renewal OR c. Wait until the last possible day for renewing Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas
With so much competition out there and the issue of dealing with spammers and credit card fraud, is it worth being in the web hosting business? It does provide nice residual income and depending on how you structure it, it could be very profitable. What are your thoughts? Is this a good type of business to be in?
