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!!
