This one comes up fairly often. Some folks would like to be able to host more than one niche-based site, at no additional charge. We'd love to do that but SBIers have this tendency to succeed, you see...


... and that tends to drive our costs up. Other small business Web hosts don't have to worry about things like that. :-)

Is passion enough?

Deep question..!

Passion versus Money...

Passion - will you want to write about your niche for a year... or more?

Should you go for a tight niche or a wide niche?

Choosing the broader - and/or more competitive - option
