I think there's only one or two people here whom I've ever hosted with, for ... obvious reasons. When I came here I was maybe 18, I actually had a shared account with @ThePrimeHost so I can vouch for the long-term stability. I don't think I was ever down, but after 12 years, those details are fuzzy.

Do yourself a favor and be realistic about your requirements and expectations. Master reseller hosting is in itself prone to all kind of issues you usually prefer to live without. If anything tells you something else they are outright lying.
How come? When we first started off we found them to be great..
Unfortunately, on master reseller accounts, your provider is going to need to be extremely vigilant about the possibility of overloading. It's because you've introduced another level of reselling.
Here's a typical cPanel reseller:
Root -> Reseller -> End User cPanel Accounts
Here's a master reseller:
Root -> Reseller -> Reseller 2 -> End User cPanel Accounts
To compound this, the main reseller has the option of adding other resellers below it, which increases the risk of overloading. It doesn't necessarily mean that overloading will occur, but it does compound the risk. As such, if you choose a provider who has master reseller access, make sure that they're doing their part in seeing that the server loads are acceptable.
Its depends on the provider, but still the risk is always there. We have personally experienced in the past with EZPZ hosting when i started very long back.. today the world has become even worst to make quick bucks and that says all.. what might happen.

Thanks for considering us. But unfortunately we had enough of Master Reseller and have totally stop selling them since months ago. I realize being a host of a Master Reseller, the biggest problem is that you might see accounts that belong to some random user in root. Like for example, I could see many accounts that do not have belong to root ending up in root whenever you remove a certain reseller permission. To be honest, there was once where I saw 100 random accounts appearing in Root instead of the individual reseller and that is when the headache arrives because you have to manually move them and at times you don't know which account belong to which reseller especially when you have 50+ reseller accounts.
