The results we received from the nearly 100 members who participated in the survey are as follows: Twenty-eight percent told us that they had never used a Web hosting company, 28 percent said that they had used one Web hosting company, and another 28 percent said that they had used two Web hosting companies.



The remainder, 16 percent, said that they had used three or more Web hosting companies.
