Just a little history: I was with addvalue hosting for about a year with a plan that was a good size and their uptime was deccent. Then the servers went down, they came back up but the owner disappeared, their forum was full of customers that were locked out of domain names and pretty much screwed.
I was about to take on some new customers so I though i might as well get a bigger plan anyway, so I went to cyberultra.net they are a good price, but they are really new and down alot for upgrades and small fixes. Due to the down time I lost my new customers. So i figured i would pay the extra money for a solid host. I read a lot of good things about mesopia.com on here so thought I would try them out. Turns out they dont answer most of their support tickets and if they do it is a on word answer.
So now i need to go back to a smaller reseller account but everyone that I find is 1gb + or under a gb and asking crazy amount of money.
To sum it all up im looking for about 500mb for 5-10 a month. Other requirements:
2-5 gb BW
lots of mysql
cpanel (or hsphere would be nice maybe im pushing it )
reliable company with some uptime history would be nice too.
I have filled out the host quote form. Im not sure if they cant read or what but they keep quoting me on 5gb packages. Honestly if you dont read what some one is asking for why would they go with your services.
Im am currently looking at:
bgfweb.com - fairly new but seems solid, not many complaints in the support forum
theprimehost.com - been around for over 2 years, decent price.
Not going to bother with raine-tech.com too cheap, no forum, no info on the website.
And 4hosted you should read the announcements
A few months ago, the request forums were removed from WHT due to abuse and other issues
Thanks for the input though. Any more would be great
Sorry about that 4 hosted you are right. I did look through it but there is a lot of cheap crap. I went with hostegrity.com (spelled it right this time) they have been around for a while and seem pretty solid. Any comments are welcome
I want to share my very expensive experiment with you !
never choose a host unless they have a good uptime history.
Also ask them about they guarantee of uptime, and if they would pay you back if they can't provide you with that uptime.
Many hosts say that they have 99.999% uptime, but they don't guarantee anything and they may go down for several days and weeks !!!
Sorry but this is what I paid $3000 to learn !
I used e-z-hosting but they disappointed me.
I'm searching for a better reseller hosting now...
but I'm not going to decide soon, as it may cost me hundreds of Dolars again !
I think solidrack.com seems to be good,they offer 99.99% server uptime and according to Alertra they've been up 100% !
any idea ?
