I have had a small personal account (robspages.net) on eroute.net since October of 2k3. They are dirt cheap for regular, single site hosting, but they are not without their drawbacks.
The server has been more stable than some of my work accounts and they are quick to respond, but they aren't the most professional people when it comes to answering nagging email questions. I've come to the conclusion that they are probobly a reseller given the quality of the support verses the tech quality. Now that I am in the market for small (1gig of space or so) linux reseller account, I would like to find out who they resell for. How would I go about trying to do that? Can i even try?
On the ethics side of the equation the most "reselling" I would be doing would be splitting the account with some friends for non-work related endevors.
The name servers have their name. I don't know why I didn't just run a traceroute last night. I just ran one now and the last hop was to ev1.net which appears to be a site on ev1servers.net. They are a little rich for my blood though.
I looked at your site site Derrick and you have the right stuff for the right price. I'll be in contact. I will continue to comparisson shop for a few more days.
I ran a search here for your service and read months worth of posts by you but I haven't come across any reviews of your service. Can you (or anyone else reading this) point me to a post, person or review site with some more information please ?
I have only recently starting putting my company info in my signature here on WHT. Most of my customers are from other sources. I will have to check with some of my clients to see if they mind you contacting them with questions.
I realize the murky ethical territory I'm getting into with this, which is why I wanted to emphasize for the WHT readers that my intention is not to form a hosting business. I'm just a geek/control freak and I wanted the ability to start and stop my harebrained website ideas at will and not have to email back and forth trying to get my domain pointed correctly or add a database to an account etc...
I just started posting on this board and I don't want to get labeled as a troll or anything... at least, not without merit.
The information I have been able to gleam in the short time I have been reading this board is staggering. I think I owe it to answers like the one you had just provided. I would prefer to keep Q and A in the forum so that you, and others, don't have to answer it repeatedly. Thanks.
