Map of Internet
I am slowly becoming clear on how Internet page Hosting works on the planet; I found a map of datacenter hubs.http://www.datacentermap.com/
Truly more than I wanted to know.

As I interpret how hosting is performed presently.
1. Co-locate Level - Data Center
A company buy the computers, locates them in the datacenter, the people in the datacenter manage to keep them up and add Ram, software and more Hard Drive Memory.
2. Large Host
This company buys from the data center, however the computer, owns the computer and pays the data center to manage.
3. Reseller Level
This company buys again from the large host does not own much, more or less just does support. This is where most people have their sites now.
As the cost and commitment goes up, so does the levels, we are now trying to move HoboTraveler.com sites from level 2 to level 1.
What precipitates the moves up this chain is when the Reseller or Large Host is refuses to give adequate support or cannot climb above the designated server level. As best we understand, nobody at the large host level understands how to use two computers or more to host a site.
I find we have no choice, we must buy our own computer, have them managed in a datacenter as the knowledge and brain support of the large host fails, there is not sufficient human brain capacity at the large host level.
This is the search for the large dealer, whereby the smaller dealer never will tell you how they do it.
There is a limit to the a brain, not all human brains are the same, I continuosly find that having a large web page has a requirement, I must be able to, or I could use partner if I was not capable, however someone in the organization has to be able to understand extreme technical concepts to expand. It is not just to be a good writer or designer, there is also the need to have and exceptional brain for computers.Map of Internet
