    I am just asking because for example, chances are the owner of a local auto shop, or author trying to sell their book have never heard of companies like Bluehost and Hostgator so they turn to Yahoo who obviously has a huge a** market share.

    Of the people I have already talked to, 90% of them say they are on Yahoo Hosting paying the same $12-15 a month. So why not cash in and convince them to sign up for Hostgators $9 or less Baby plan? The question though: is there a way to recognize if a website is running off of Yahoo hosting in the first place?

    Do you think these companies really care about an extra $5 saved per month?

    I find in most cases for businesses its more trouble than its worth to move hosting (If it aint broke dont fix it), and $5 is such a nominal monthly savings anyways. I do like your thinking though :) just my 2cents on it

    If you want to find out who hosts somebody
    http://who-hosts.com/

    Is an easy to use tool that prints out the results in plain english
