Is starting a SiteBuilder Web-Business a good idea?

Hi all,
I am starting a hosting business that hides the user from the
complexities of setting up the website backend and only providing a
dedicated website builder only.
services to include:
- domain and email setup for the user
- easy to use website builder
- full support of email and builder products
- targeted towards small/medium business that are not computer savvy
- website fully hosted
My question is, will a business like this likely generate sales enough
to make the business profitable? Is the market way too saturated with
businesses homestead, moonfruit, citymax, web hosters providing
sitebuilders, and web designers?
Also, are there any additional services I can provide to bring in more
revenue apart from custom webdesign, or banner/logo editing?

    The question I have is "Where is the gap?"
    I believe anyone can have a successful business in any market as long as 1. There is a demand 2. The new business is differentiated from the established competition 3. The customer demand benefits dramatically from the differentiation.
    Be different and be better, and you have a good shot at a very profitable business.
