    Question

    I want to thank you all for helping me with my previous posts!

    I have seem to hit a brick wall however in my decision making and would like some input.

    After carfully reviewing all of your input. I have narrowed my list down to about 5 potential hosts for my reseller business. The problem I have is the packages I would like to offer and the main account do not exactly meet my needs or my targeted clients needs. The 2 hosting companies that would provide me with what I am looking for both have terrible reviews.

    I was thinking about just going with a dedicated server but I am not sure if that is a wise choice just yet because of just starting out.I dont want to jump too soon! Any thoughts on possible options?

    Do any of you offer custom packages that I could use as my main account and then create the ones I would like to offer?

    If I do decide to go with a dedicated server what about tech support? How do all of you dedicated hosts provide the 24hr 800# tech support? In house or does your upsource provide this. Also do most dedicated server packages come with control panels for the Server Admin and potential clients or would I have to purchase my own?

    You can either reply here or to avoid policy violations email me at phiroof@msn.com.

    Thanks in advance for all of your time and help!!

    If you are brand new, don't go with a dedicated server. Start as a reseller.

    Tell us who you have decided on for possible uplinks. It's quite possible that the reviews you have are not entirely accurate.

    Here are the ones that I have narrowed it down to:

    hostmatters.com
    site5.com
    jrc-hosting.com
    wbcom.net
    cavendo.com

    The 2 that have basically what I am looking for (Storage space, Resold packages, bandwidth and features) ***** and Burstnet. And they both have bad reveiws. What is the norm that potential customers look for in storage, features, and bandwidth? Perhaps my expectations are a little too high?

    Thanks again

    Since you posted your email address, why don't you post your needs, and your targeted clients needs, and maybe you'll get emails with some solutions.

    I will say however that the other 5 hosts you listed seem to have some decent plans, and because of this, I can't figure out what you want.

    I think it would be better to go with a host that you feel good about from the beginning.

    I would suggest reading this http://www.resellerinfo.com/getstarted.html. While it doesn't go into a lot of detail, it may help.

    I also agree with Chicken, what are your targeted needs.

    Needs..

    It seems my expectations were a little too high!! The packages offered by these hosts will more than meet my needs and potential customers. Thanks for all you responses and emails. You have all been a tremendous help!!
