Ok here is what I am looking for... it doesn't necessarly need to be a reseller but I need something to host multiple domains.
Bandwidth: 30GB/mth + (I probably do around 22GBs/day on the two sites I run now)
Need: MySQL and PHP 4 support
Would be nice: if it supported server side includes as that is the way it I have pages setup now.
Need someplace that is going to be really reliable as I have customers that are paying for ad space that would be very unhappy if the site was down for a long period of time.
If I don't plan to actually use the reseller features.... would I be better off getting a non reseller account as far as server stability and reliability goes?
The reason I ask is someone in another thread said they outgrew their account. Like I said above I have two sites one of which gets a lot of hits (2.6million this month already) and I just want it to be stable.
Right now these two sites are on a win 2003 machine by themselves and run great. But my 10MBit connection is going bye-bye when I move
Windows Hosting or Linux?
Do you prefer a specific type Control Panel?
You should state those as they will help in determining recommedations.
And whether a Reseller account or Shared should make no difference in the Server stability a Hoster provides. You might want a Reseller account though, as you can easily get higher Web space and Data tranfer allotments right off the bat.

One word of advice, if you do go for a linux host, ask them if they can accept and handle a site as busy as yours. This will reduce your headaches in the long run.

If you only need one ftp login to manage all the domains, you might be able to get away with a larger shared hosting account. Most hosts allow users to host more than one website on a domain these days.
Of couse, if you need to create control panels for other users then a reseller account is probably what you are looking for.
