Great overview about hosting. Even for smaller businesses without strong tech expertise, it's now become easier to try things out without huge or long-term commitments. Please encourage more experimentation by businesses of any size. There are many credible hosting players out there, handling large traffic and volumes to support growth. As businesses reach limitations, they can trade up without onerous switching costs.

I plan to do my holiday shopping…
Online only -- I like the convenience and comfort.
Online only -- I'd shop in stores if their stock weren't so limited.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I like to see what I'm getting.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I enjoy the holiday shopping atmosphere.
At brick-and-mortar stores only -- I want to support local merchants.
Online and in stores -- I want the best of both worlds.
I'm not planning on doing any holiday shopping.
