If you still look like a traditional web host in 2022, you have three possible futures: evolve, expire, or maybe get acquired.
You’ve lost a big chunk of market share to the site builders. You’ve probably noticed how many YouTubers are sponsored by Squarespace and Wix.
You’ve lost a big chunk to the hyperscalers too. Who’d go with a traditional web host when everyone’s talking about AWS?
Evolve, expire, or maybe get acquired?
We’d go with evolve. You have to modernize. You have to increase the density and efficiency of your traditional services, and build on them with modern hosting services.
VPS not shared hosting. Elastic hosting for WordPress and other applications. It can be done – and there is a VERY healthy market.
