  • 1. Speaking of Amazon’s auto-recommendations, Aggregate Knowledge drove $100 million in new sales on Overstock.com. They recommend next steps based on people’s navigation behavior, and their service is offered on a pay per performance basis. I think this would be a great match with any big hosting company.
    2. Dan Kimball from ModernBill recently told me about RobotReplay. It’s AMAZING. You can watch videos of individual visitors’ mouse movements across your site.
    3. Microsoft and Yahoo have both implemented cobranded versions of Krugle for their developer communities. Krugle is a search engine for code. For those of you who see developers as part of your target audience, something like this could be a value added service for customers, a market research tool to see what kinds of things they search for, and a revenue source from the ad impressions they generate. Back in the late 1990s, every web hosting company wanted to advertise on a site called Matt Scripts Archive. 10 years later, the paradigm has changed. It’s time for successful web hosting companies to play the role of Matt Scripts Archive.

  • I read recently that Web 3.0 equals 4C + P + V. The first C is commerce; getting from prospect to customer requires communicating with different audiences in different ways. Most web hosting companies have one single product page for everyone from experienced developers to first time site owners who have no idea what FTP means. If you think about how Amazon’s auto-recommendations are responsible for 30% of its sales, is that the most effective way?

  • OpSource is really intriguing. It’s founded by Treb Ryan, whose last company sold for more than a billion dollars less than a year after its launch. OpSource charges customers based on the amount of activity their applications generate – and customers get to define what counts as a unit of usage. Shopster is interesting too. They not only host online stores, but provide 750K wholesale products that customers can sell. They even ship directly to buyers.

  • Give us your credit card number and we’ll give you everything! That’s how the traditional web hosting pricing model works. Create unlimited email accounts. Host unlimited domains. Use unlimited databases. Most customers don’t need 3,000 email accounts. Instead of appreciating your generosity, they probably feel like they’re paying for what they don’t need. More importantly, your incentives aren’t aligned. The more resources they use, the more money you lose. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
