About the Author

The author has over 12 years experience in starting, growing, managing, and selling his own web hosting businesses. The author started his first web hosting company at the age of 21 and has successfully grown the business into a multimillion dollar web hosting company. Together with his wife, the author manages to grow his first company from a literally a one man show to a staff of over 50 people with offices both in his home country and in the United States where he currently resides. Under his management the company grew from utilizing a single reseller account to owning over 130 servers which are being collocated in a data center residing in the heart of Silicon Valley. He then sold his first web hosting company through a well known merger & acquisition deal in late 2007. Today the author is currently running his second web hosting company and has successfully acquired a substantial amount of market share in today's highly competitive web hosting market. The author currently resides in the Silicon Valley area, California with his wife and three children.

I am disappointed and would not recommend this book as it is far too specific to implementations and configurations that change rapidly.

Frustratingly, the author doesn't explain any of the settings he recommends; he just says to do it his way. While the author admits in the book that this isn't intended to be an educational kind of book, for $47 I would have expected more.

In addition, the book could use a heavy dose of proofreading as it has many grammatical errors. Since another reviewer mentioned this in 2009, I doubt that is going to happen anytime soon.

In summary, while this book has value, I would recommend that the author downsize the book to the second half that focuses more on sales and marketing techniques and price it at $9.99.

Since this is a new product on the market, I'm still working my way through it. These are my initial thoughts, which I will revise later:

The book does a phenomenal job of covering the scope of what someone new entering the hosting business would need to know. There's a lot of practical knowledge in these chapters: scripts, day-to-day operational procedures, marketing, and more. The author also has developed software that could be invaluable for the new host to use (not included with this book).

I've been in the hosting industry for 10 years and I still feel there are some items that are of value to me. Things that fall by the wayside such as local marketing in favor of online marketing.

That being said, I hope the author takes the time to address the two shortcomings of the book. First, I think the biggest hurdle of someone entering this highly saturated market is finding their niche. The author covers this in the book, however I think a future version of the book would benefit from this being expanded upon.

Secondly, it's obvious that the author's first language is not English. The book could really use a good editor to proofread. I think it unfairly undermines the effectiveness of the author, when it's clear he is a subject matter expert in the field.

I'm currently mentoring someone new to the industry and plan to use this book as a reference. I will update this review with the outcome of that effort.

The grammar, style, and argumentative content is that of the level of a very informed high school student. Because of the paucity of books covering this subject it is unfortunate that the author's personal biases are so vividly displayed in the book, so much so that it becomes impossible to trust what he says. Abrahim Ikasud is allegedly a pen-name, and the author had vested financial interest in the companies that he profusely recommends left and right in the book without substantiating these recommendations.

The ebook is incidentally provided for free by hostgator.com provided that you sign-up for their reseller account. They likely funded the publication in the first place, which goes to show why hostgator is recommended throughout the book.

This book is an awesome book for someone not just new to webhosting, but someone who already has a good understanding of what it takes to be successful. All the book does, is puts it into a format that you can read what most already know. It also has some really good information on how to set up everything from a simple reseller account, to dedicated servers. There is nothing Con like about it. Don't matter what this guy did or didnt do has nothing to do with the quality information, or the content that is provided in this book! Its a very good book almost like a bible of webhosting. Has very good information. 4 Stars! I would reserve 5 stars for absolute Perfection!

This book is a good book for someone not just new to web hosting, but someone who already has a good understanding of what it takes to be successful. It does a great job of covering the scope of what someone new entering the hosting business would need to know. There's a lot of practical knowledge in these chapters: scripts, day-to-day operational procedures, marketing, and more. but you can download it for free on the web, So don't waste your $40 or so dollars when you can get it for free

I have been reading the book that was free from HostGator. I think any price over $20 is too much. I have been a programmer for over 20 years. I understand the process explained, but I can not imagine a non-tech person implementing the processes outlined in the book. Especially since some of the websites that he gives step by step instructions have changed their website pages and it look nothing like he describes. He then tells you to build free websites for you first 100 customers, so you must know how to build websites. The reason for the 3 stars is the simple fact that his advise of NO FAST MONEY is what make this book worth reading provided it is free. The asset that we have as small hosting service providers is the ability to assist our customers where the big hosting companies can not compete.
