You may want to look at reseller-center.com. I have used them, in the past, w/ excellent results.
Good luck in your search!

I am going to to set up an hsphere account with reseller-center, i did setup an helm account but I think I would rather use hsphere. The only appealing thing about their helm plans is Smartmail.
matrixreseller looks interesting. I would rather they had windows 2003 servers but I don't think it will be a problem using 2K
Win2k is tried and tested. We tested win2k3 and found it very unstable. We switched back to win2k for the 2 system tested live where we found the issue. Win2k3 from what we have seen is just not stable in IIS, it may be with SP1 but H-Sphere does not support SP1 as of yet.

I set up an account with matrixreseller last night at 9:00 PM edt.
As of 7:44 am EDT it is still not active. According to your website you have instant account activation.
Is the instant activation for the reseller or the resller's clients?
We disabled instant account activation due to a spike in fraud, billing will be in at 10am they will creat your account and verify it at that time. We had close to 50 fraud accounts in a day signup. This has slowed them down of course. But ends up making the customer wait a bit longer.
Yes, I would prefer to keep my anger with psoft about windows private for now, and not take it public, so let's keep on the original topic here, and not discuss hsphere + windows, either way, you will be fine. Windows 2003 or Windows 2000, service pack 1 + windows 2003 would be really nice, but it isn't happening now. Let's move on, more on topic, Coldfusion and ASP.NET.
I know that some companies offer both, but on different servers(as we do), if you need them on the same server, you might need to make sure of it via a quick sales email.
What I mean by that is, our Coldfusion server is windows, but dedicated to Coldfusion, it has ASP and ASP.NET disabled, it is very stable, more stable than the ASP/ASP.NET enabled servers, iisresets happen very rarely on it, reboots far less.
Originally posted by Vortech But H-Sphere does not support SP1 so users that use mssql are really stuck if they use a host with win2k3 + mssql. I would not want to offer that to a customer. Win2k has none of these issues.
Oh, win2000 is a great product and believe me I never wanted to add win2003 boxes. But its hard to convince resellers/customers
I believe SP1 is working with Hsphere. Most hosts are reporting success with their upgrades to SP1 on psoft forum. Going to try an upgrade on a test server as well to see how it goes.
There are actually minor improvements ive liked in Win2003/IIS6. Application pools and its related features makes dealing with bad sites/scripts much easier. Splitting the sites into several app pools greatly improves stability and I've seen lesser issues on the win2003 boxes compared to the win2000 boxes this way.
Another thing is that Win2003 has 3GB max reserved for applications unlike 2GB max reserved in Win2000. If you noticed, sometimes when applications used more than 2GB on Win2000, you started getting out-of-memory issues on the win2000 boxes. No such issues with win2003.
