    There's also:

    - Donhost (own DC)
    - FastHosts (no idea where they have their DC but avoid anyway)

    Checking around some of the UK net/PC/computer magazines would probably help you locate a few more..

    eg: http://www.futurepublishing.co.uk/

    You may also wish to consider Vibus: http://www.vibus.co.uk I believe it was setup by some ex-FastHost clients. No idea about data centre information etc. though.

    Just to clarify, all our servers including reseller servers have been hosted in our Doncaster data centres for over 12 months now.

    We still have a presence in Telehouse but this is mostly network equipment with a small number of servers for secondary DNS, and other backups.

    Have a look at Clook. They can offer you US & UK reseller accounts, and the service is absolutely great.

    If your looking for a shared hosting reseller package and you want the company supplying you the service to be 'anonymous' in the background then WEBFUSION (part of the Host Europe group) should be left well alone. Here's some for examples:-

    If your client trying to login to his/her contol panel has forgotten there passowrd and use the 'help' link provided to retireve it they will receive an email from webmaster@webfusion.co.uk nice heh!!

    The control panel is riddled with mentions of their contol panel brand name 'MyServerWorld' and even a link to the login URL https://myserverworld.com (just in case you are thinking of creating your own login page/URL).

    They have some other nice touches like mentions of mail servers in the form of neon.webfusion.co.uk , oxygen.webfusion.co.uk etc. Bit of a giveaway heh!!!

    Seems like more of a conspiracy than a case of overlooking some issues!!!!

    Apart from that my experience has been that their support ranges from reasonable ( depending on who you get) to absolutoely laughable. Their accounts department takes money from your account that you don't owe sometimes, although I must confess this has happened to me in a long time so maybe they have got their act together now in this dept.

    Yep, that all sounds very familiar. I've been a Gold Reseller there since August 1998, and things have improved a lot over the years, although they always seem to be struggling to keep up. Their accounts department has always been a bit of disaster and, although they've done a lot of work there over the last year, you still have to be careful and keep a constant eye on your credit card account.

    As regards their advertising, I guess you could say that they're just being savvy, although it's a bit much in this day and age when resellers demand total control over their branding. I tried to brand my control panels once and found it almost impossible, because it's run on a secure server, and you can't upload to it. The end result is a warning about "insecure items" due to images being referenced externally. I didn't get anywhere with Support and gave up in the end.
