Absolutely. This missed opportunity started pretty early, when the upcoming internet was separated from the IT and network reseller markets, more than twenty years ago. They all were very interested in this new development, but those guys, from Ingram to Techdata, they all didn't respond. Sure they sold server, network equipment, internet access, router and that stuff, but the hosting business was a business to consumer thing from day one, and the c-panels key to what would have been possible, this anchor point to hardware, making the internet fruitful integrated into an overall network plan.
