When I started exploring the world of websites and the internet, it was like stepping into a big adventure. Every picture and word on a website is like a piece of a puzzle that fits together to tell a story. But as I learned more, I realized that making a website is just one part. The big question was, “How do I show it to everyone online? Web hosting to be specific” That’s where my journey took an exciting turn.
Learning What’s Missing in Web Development Lessons at Universities: Web hosting business
I met many young people who had just finished their studies in web design and web development. They could develop fantastic websites. But when I asked them, “Where will you put this website online for everyone to see?”, many of them were confused. They refer me to so many web hosting companies out there, but non of these university graduated have access to their own servers.
That’s when I realized that many people learn how to design websites but are misled on where to put them on the internet. This process is called ‘web hosting’.
Why Having Your Own Web Hosting Is Awesome
So, from that idea, I decided to dive into the world of web hosting. It was like finding hidden treasure! Having my own server to host websites gave me so many benefits. Now, let’s delve into the math to understand the potential earnings one could have by venturing into the web hosting business.
Let’s say, a web hosting company charges $10/month for hosting a website (this is a basic estimate and can vary from one company to another).
- With 10 clients, that’s $100/month or $1,200/year.
- With 100 clients, it’s $1,000/month or $12,000/year.
- And with 1,000 clients, we’re looking at $10,000/month or a whopping $120,000/year!
If you want a proof of what I am talking about, look at the current market scenario, I find several prominent web hosting companies charging a similar rate. Companies like Bluehost, HostGator, SiteGround, DreamHost, and A2 Hosting, to name a few, often offer packages around $10/month for their basic web hosting plans.
This is what you are missing as a professional web developer or designer if you don’t have a server. By solely focusing on designing and developing without considering hosting, you’re essentially handing over a goldmine to someone else. You are making someone a millionaire. Every time you design a site and host it elsewhere, you are making another company richer – when this is something entirely within your capabilities.
Web hosting is not just about providing space; it’s about offering an end-to-end solution to clients. Imagine being the go-to person for a client’s every need, from creating a website to hosting and maintaining it. That not only means more revenue but also a strengthened bond with your clients.
The digital world is ever-evolving, and to truly be at the forefront, you must harness every part of it. As a designer or developer, or any persion who teaches this skills, owning a server and offering hosting can be the game-changer you’ve been waiting for. Don’t just build the future for some; build yours too.
Looking at this potential for earnings played a huge role in my decision to venture into the hosting business. Not only does it provide consistent revenue, but it also scales beautifully. Even if someday I migh start another business, the demand for hosting remains because of the countless developers out there. They’re creating new sites daily, meaning more demand for hosting.
New Challenges: AI Making Websites
As the technology is getting better and better at web design, a new challenge came up againest you. New tools, powered by Artificial Intelligence (or AI for short), started helping people make websites easily. Even if they didn’t know much about design!
This means more people could make websites today, and these creates more competition. But here’s the thing: every website needs a home on the internet. So, even if someone used AI to create a website, they would still need web hosting. I knew my hosting services will became even more important in future!
Why Starting Today Makes Sense
Have you ever heard the saying, “Don’t put off today’s work for tomorrow”? Well, when it comes to the online world, this is super true. The internet is like a big, busy city that keeps growing every day. More shops open, more people move in, and if you wait too long, you might miss out on a great opportunities!

Think of it like this: if you see a delicious piece of cake, would you wait for someone else to take it or would you grab it? “The future is digital, and now is the future,” so it’s like the cake is right in front of you today!
Lastly, sometimes starting can feel a bit scary because there’s so much to learn. But remember, every expert was once a beginner. The difference? They started. So, if you want to be part of this exciting online world, the best time to start is now. Don’t miss out!
