    Hostgator VS Justhost?

    I have an account with JustHost at the moment, normal account shared host, of course. I've been considering to renew a plan with JustHost and switch to a reseller account (costs £30/monthly) instead of the normal one. The questions are:

    1. Is reseller web host suits for "web design business" as my first intention to maximize the profit is not from earning from web hosting business but for my web design business's clients instead? Should I stick with the old normal shared hosting plan? I usually have to pay for my client's web hosting plan + registered domain name + domain privacy and etc. Then I come to think of we could have saved a lot more If I act like a web hosting myself, would you agree?

    New client has to pay around £45 for the web hosting service itself excluding web design and developing, one year plan which I chose for them, now if I were the host myself, I could have prolonged their plan at a cheaper rate as I get to decide how much I am goint to charge them. But the heavier responsibility would be on my side instead of theirs as I had to pay monthly charge more to the original web host company. Recommendation please.

    2. I've seen Hostgator reseller's plan comes with thousands of free templates. What do you think about reseller plan of Hostgator VS Justhost? Which one should I go for or else?

    just signed up with HG and they have been pretty good about helping me. I have most everything setup...I like that they have servers in Texas.

    Estimate your requirements, decide where you prefer the server to be, then do a good search on here for recommendations.
    I have no personal experience with either of those, but from what I've seen here I'd go with Hostgator.....once I'd eliminated all other potential providers.

    I signed up with Hostgator on the 4th of July; I feel this was the right move for me. Any questions I've had they've answered straight away.

    You do get a lot of nice free templates that you can offer your clients.

    I also like the fact your allowed to copy their TOS.

    I've never been a fan of "unlimited" providers, especially when it comes to reseller accounts. So my only advice is to be cautious going in with either company and know your limits! Make sure you read both companies TOS so you dont find your-self in a situation where your account is suspended for using too many "unlimited" resources

    I'd go with HostGator over JustHost. Ive used Hostgators reseller accounts before and was satisfied, however their vps gave me issues. I've never used JustHost but I understand that they were sold out to a company, unlike HostGator.

    I have no experience with the both hosts but based on forum reviews, Hostgator is better then justhost as I have not seen any single positive review about justhost support and also I had a bad experience with their pre-sales department. So, you should signup with hostgator rather than justhost.

    In the beginning, I suggest you to not look at profits but you should expand business and I am assure that you can have loss in the beginning but keep continue with best efforts.
    Yes reseller business suits you as you can manage your clients much better than buying hosting for them from someone else.
    Actually, you pays less to your reseller provider because you are agree to provide support to your customers and you have lot of responsibility about your customers.

    Dont even think about justhost. Awful services, awful support.
    Question: Why htaccess is not working at my hosting?
    Answer: Htaccess cannot work without domain name attached to the hosting!

    Generally, if you're happy with a host, you should stick with them.

    In my experience with shared hosting with both providers, the hosting was quite good. Justhost actually did some changes about 10-11 months ago that resulted in significant performance improvement. Uptime was still better at Hostgator.

    1. Is reseller web host suits for "web design business" as my first intention to maximize the profit is not from earning from web hosting business but for my web design business's clients instead?
    The beauty of having a side-business of hosting sites, even if it's old web design clients mostly, is that the income can increase, and the stream tend to be quite constant. If you go into difficulties finding business for a while, the hosting service will still be there with some much needed cash flow.

    On the other hand, if you're generally swamped by requests to your main business, putting resources (especially time) into becoming a host, would probably be a waste.

    I've never been a fan of "unlimited" providers, especially when it comes to reseller accounts.
    I tend to agree with the unreasonable nature of unlimited, especially for reseller hosting. A main danger is that it gives the reseller the impression that the reseller account will sustain his business regardless of its size, which is untrue. That can all too easily lead the reseller into mispricing his packages. There's nothing more terrible than to realize you've build a business for 1 or 2 years, and build the foundation on quicksand.

    In context with the given review about hg and justhost, i will definitely go with hg. I had bad experience with justhost. So in my view just say no to justhost.

    Totally agreed with you, I've thought about having a good plan B support as well. I think, at this minute, I might go with JustHost as the price is the main factor to consider at the moment in my situation (business has about to taken off), Hostgator reseller plan are more expensive than JustHost. Apart from these two, HeartInternet seems to attract me either because of its price (£1 for the first month). But anyway it's monthly payment to JustHost which means if, in the future, I wasn't happy with them, I just simply moved my host and clients to another company as there's no contract binding. Hope I am on a right move.

    Compare the plans against your budget and see which host provides you with the features/specs you require.

    I would say HostGator because JustHost just has too much downtime.
