My Quest to Find the Answer...
You probably want me to cut to the chase so you can discover how to make incredible money in the web hosting business...
Perhaps you want to make some extra cash to pay off your bills, or take the vacation youíve always wanted. Maybe you already run a successful business, and youíre looking for ways to make more money with less effort. Perhaps you're a web designer looking for a way to provide hosting to your clients while increasing your profits.
If youíre like I was, you probably want to quit your day job, get out of the 9 to 5 rat race, and start working for yourself from the comfort of your own home. Well OK, I'll cut to the chase...
I started my first web hosting business with a $40 investment, and turned it into a six-figure income within the first year! If you have the desire to run your own web hosting business, my e-course can save you time and money while providing valuable inside information that will make the difference between having a successful business or just another failed attempt.
If youíre reading this, youíre probably interested in gaining more money, more freedom, living a more fulfilling life, or all of the above. Do any of these things strike a chord with you?

Make money while youíre sleeping
Did you know that the internet is a money-making machine that works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? At all times, regardless of what youíre doing, money is being made by someone on the internet.
That means that while you're eating, sleeping, working and playing, money is pouring into the pockets of internet entrepreneurs from all around the world. The internet is so big, and thereís so much money to be made that thereís plenty of room for anyone to join the system and start profiting from the power of the internet.
Imagine owning your own internet business, and each time a customer makes a purchase the money is automatically sent to your account, even if youíre sound asleep! Trillions, yes trillions, of dollars are being spent on the internet and thousands of people are discovering a new lifestyle and fulfilling their dreams each day. Would you like to be one of them?
I know I wanted to be one of them. If you're like I was, you've already done enough research to realize that someone is out there making a ton of money on the internet. The burning question that kept fueling my conquest of internet success was this:
If they can make money on the internet then why can't I?
After six years of searching the web for a real way to make money, I finally found my answer--actually I rather bumped into it by mistake! Before I tell you how I bumped into it, and exactly what it was, just let me tell you that there are two main things that made this opportunity different from the rest.
1) It was a REAL business opportunity to run my OWN business.
2) It worked!
The opportunity that I discovered is certainly not the only way to make money on the internet, but it was one of the first ones I came across that met those two criteria.
The problem is that most "Business Opportunities" on the internet do not even meet the first requirement on my list. They are not a REAL business of your OWN. Many of them are scams, and others are simply ploys to help build someone else's business.
Beyond that, there are only a handful of opportunities that meet my second requirement which is; it must work!
Do you want to know how I accidentally bumped into this great business?
Throughout my "internet quest" I tried numerous so-called business opportunities. Perhaps like you, I wasted a lot of time and money trying things that didn't work. One of these so-called business opportunities required me to have my own website from which to sell products.
The great part about that experience is even though I wasted time and money I also learned from the experience. For example, I learned how to build a website using basic HTML and upload it to the server using FTP. So don't feel bad if you've wasted time and money looking for the right business! If you learned something, then you're better because of it. Just don't keep making the same mistakes!
That's why I'm here: to steer you in the right direction.
OK, so how did that experience lead me to the right opportunity? Well like I said, I had a website. And I had to pay to have that website hosted. If you have a website then you know what I'm talking about...
Unless you want a terribly unreliable website with someone else's banner ads popping up all over it, you need to pay to have it hosted. At the time I was paying $12.95 per month to have my site hosted, which is actually a good price for reliable hosting, but as a struggling entrepreneur I wanted to find out if I could save money and get it done cheaper.
So one day I sat down and searched the internet far and wide for the cheapest web hosting I could find.
I found a host offering it for $10 a month...
Then I saw an advertisement for $8 per month...
Then $6 and even $5 per month...
I was getting really excited about all the money I was going to save and I was nearly ready to sign up for a $5 hosting plan when I came across one last advertisement that caught my eye:
The ad said I could host my site for only $2 a month but that I would have to pay a small fee to find out where! Of course I immediately thought it was a scam, but it was tempting nevertheless, because it sounded like such a good deal.
Did I pay for the info?
I have to admit it. My curiosity got the best of me and I paid to find out the "secret source". Sure enough, the confirmation page directed me to a small unknown web host who was selling hosting for $2/month.
Then something happened that I had never even imagined...
Just below this spectacular $2 offer was another offer that said I could host my website for only 40 cents per month!
Well now I was almost sure it was a scam, but then I noticed there was a catch. In order to get that rate, I had to sign up for the 100-website plan for $40/month. Still, if the offer was legitimate, it was a phenomenal deal. The offer went on to explain that I didn't have to actually have 100 websites to take advantage of the great deal. It said I could resell those spaces to other people!
Now they had REALLY caught my attention. I'd say my interest level was at an all-time high. I left that browser window open and quickly hopped onto a search engine in another window to do some research. Within a few minutes a discovered that almost all web hosting is resold at some level.
Even if a web host calls themselves a top level host, or an ISP, chances are they are reselling those hosting resources from someone higher up. It's interesting that I never saw any such information when I was shopping for a web host, but when I decided to research the nitty-gritty backend of the web hosting industry I easily discovered that most hosts are essentially acting as resellers!
Well to make a long story short, I decided to take a stab at it. The articles I found on the search engines revealed that untold millions were being made by web hosts, and I wanted my piece of the pie.
After all what did I have to lose? In terms of business opportunities, the startup cost was tiny (only $40 in my case). Besides that, I needed a host for my own website, and I was wanting to build a couple other websites as well. I figured if I could just resell a few of those 100 hosting spots then I could break even on the $40/month and at least be hosting my own sites for free!
Needless to say, I did resell those hosting spots. In fact I found that there was such a demand for hosting that I quickly sold out all of those 100 spots and shortly thereafter leased my first server.
I turned the business into a full-time income within months and was making over $100,000/year within the first year. I was able to quit my day job and work from the comfort of my own home office where I get to eat lunch with my beautiful wife and play with my kids anytime I want to. It was a goal and dream ever since the beginning of my long and enduring Internet Quest, and seeing that dream become a reality was a great milestone in my life.
I believe the same type of success can be experienced by you if you have the desire and discipline to make it happen, along with the essential information and knowledge to get you started. Again, that's where I come in. I wrote this e-course to help you start your own web hosting business with success. If you think this type of business might be right for you, do yourself a favor and read my e-course so you can get started on the right foot.
