Default Are Hosting certifications worth it?

Hi,

I was just wondering what is the significance\relevance of hosting certifications from big/reputed companies like microsoft etc..

Is it worth it?

I really believe more in the practicality of things then nice decorations like: Microsoft Web Hoster Program, Microsoft Partner Program, Web Presence Provider etc. etc.

what are your opinions on it?

In my opinion, certifications are very important. It can provide more credibility as shows that your staff has expertise in that technology. Having the certifications may also allow you to participate in different programs.

For example, to participate in the Microsoft Certified Partner program, one requirement is to have staff that are Microsoft Certified Professionals.

I dont think clients realy care about expertee's. Its not exactly hard to operate win 2003 etc. People dont care, because the ones that do proberly have their own servers

I strongly disagree with camers. Customers do care about the host's expertise and operating a Windows hosting environment is not trivial. If it were trivial, then there would be more Windows hosts out there.

If this is your experience, we are definitely attracting different customers.
