Default Online Hosting And Business Credit?

I was wondering why don't hosting companies submit credit ratings to DUNS? We rent space from them at a cost as if it is property. For small businesses, this could help show creditors that you pay on time, so that your credit score can increase.

Most small businesses avoid D&B like the plague. Just one more interruption, and giving financial information on the phone is not considered wise. Unless forced to deal with them due to a contract obligation, few have any use for D&B.

And doesn't the D&B want to charge something? Most hosting companies are kiddie hosts and can barely afford the monthly reseller fee. There are a few large hosting companies, but chances are they also might only deal with a few specific companies so they might not have a need for it.

(I guess I watch too many of the hosting forums and see way too many where can I get a cheap SSL ($80 a year is too much they think)).

That makes sense. I am hoping some companies start offering this to their clients to help their credit ratings. I know hosting companies do not make much money, but Go Daddy should start this as an offer. I can imagine they are the largest.
