    Reseller Suggestions for a web developer

    Okay, now that I know a little about what reseller hosting is, I am ready to look for one. Hope some of you can suggest hosts that fit my specifications. I've been checking the Reseller Hosting forum and Reseller Hosting Offers. I would just like to hear from other people as well. Location does not matter to me. The important thing is that the host is stable.


    Requirements:

    Disk Space: at least 50GB
    Budget: $20/month max as I am just starting out
    Stability: most important factor to me. 99.9-100% uptime
    Bandwidth: at least 500 GB
    Accounts: 10-20 is fine
    Money back guarantee: 45-60 days
    Support needs to be quick in replying
    Migrate my old host

    Nice to have:
    Softaculous
    Daily backups

    Also would be nice if you suggest a host that upholds its SLA. At the moment, I am looking at Onra Host(Basic free upgrade to advanced) and Eleven2(R-100 free upgrade to R-200). InnoHosting sounds great but the disk space cannot accommodate my budget. Nothing has been decided yet so please do give your suggestions.

    P.S. Legit stuff here. Mostly transaction/inventory/registration and etc systems of companies that hire me.

    Are you actually currently using this much space?

    One of the clients is hard disk space intensive due to storing of images.

    That's nice budge you have. But mostly with that budget you will be not easy to get that 50 GB. Try to increase your budged little bit.

    I think budget is quite reasonable.
    Plenty of Quality Providers will provide these specifications in this price.

    Stream101 has 40GB for $25. They're already low-cost as it is.
    I don't know that you'll find 50GB for $20. (At least not from a high quality host.)

    Your requirements seem to be pretty reasonable, so you are going to have plenty of choices to pick from. Personally, I would just make sure you find a host that you feel comfortable with based on other people's reviews of the company.

    Yes, I saw their post in the offers section and mentioned it in my post.

    So best is to Choose a Web Hosting from WHT OFFERS Section
    and Do a search on WHT About that Reseller
    Then Made your choice

    For That Specifications
    VPS will be min 15$/month + Cpanel 10 to 15$/month, + RV Skin 3$/month + Softaculous 1.5$/month = 15+15+3+1.5= 34.5$/month
    Management is a seprate issue too

    Well.. He didn't say he needed an RV Skin.. And while cpanel is may be $15/mo, could always go with DirectAdmin which is fairly decent as well.... I know first hand that some companies can deliver a DirectAdmin+Softaculous Combo for about $10/mo... Not saying who, but I don't there are some that can.

    So.. more so look at about $25-$30 depending upon who you go with. But of course again.. The big issue there is that you have to deal with server management, if your not that familiar with *nix based systems I would stay away from the VPS deal.

    Well
    When i was started with VPS about sometime ago
    My First Client asked for RV-Skin Builder
    and
    90% Customers are Cpanel Based so they will ask for Cpanel First
    Daily Backups is a problem again

    Hostgator does meet my specifications all except the price though. Their aluminum reseller meets the disk space and bandwidth needs but it goes over my budget of $20. I am just starting out so can't really invest much.

    Additional question:

    If the reseller I choose has WHMCS, will there be an issue if I am being paid in person by one of my clients? As mentioned earlier, I will be setting up their sites on my own as part of my developer's fee. It is very unlikely that they will pay via Paypal/Credit Card. If I get paid offline, is there an option in WHMCS to reflect this? Thank you for all the help.

    Use Payment Mode as Bank Wire
    And after Payment Received, Manually Mark that Invoice as Paid.
