I agree. I always marvel at how cheap it is to benefit from economies
of scale as far as third party web hosting goes (provided you choose a
reliable hosting company). Have you considered finding a more reliable
hosting provider?

Taking on web hosting responsibilities would add significant overhead
to your operation. Having said that, if your client base has deep
pockets, it might not matter.

I work for a large organization, who's core competency isn't web
hosting, and often wonder why they just don't outsource this task. It
can be resource intensive.
