    DPMS Hosting - Opinions

    Hi, I'm presently looking at moving to a reseller account in the $7 - $15 p.m. price bracket. I've no illusions as to the level of quality you're likely to get at that price range, but would sill like something that is going to be pretty stable nonetheless.

    DPMS Hosting looks interesting and I've done some research on it. It's relevantly new, so reviews are scarce, however what is out there has given me the impression that they started well and started going downhill on uptime, etc from August. Can anyone give their own experiences with them - good, bad or somewhere in-between?

    Additionally, if anyone would like to make any recommendations for other resellers in that price bracket, that too would be very much appreciated.

    There are many choices in the price bracket. If you are already worried about them going down hill then they may not be the best host for you. When you do find a host of interest, be sure to send lots of presales emails, ask a lot of questions, and make sure they have a money back guarantee, just in case...

    Sorry, havent heard about them before. However, there are many good hosts out there. If you can list your requirements, it's better to suggest you providers that are suitable with you

    Never used them, but 2 GB of bandwidth and 100 GB of traffic at $5 for a reseller account seems too oversold for my taste.

    Sound advice, thanks.

    Nothing really all that special; Linux hosting with the standard features CP & WHM, PHP, MySQL, overselling enabled, fantastico, DNS, fixed IP (as an extra), mailing lists, etc - with relivively decent up-time and HD space/bandwidth.

    ResellerZoom seems to be the most reccomended, but the budget packages appear to throttle server-side scripting from accounts here and their advanced packages are just that little bit too rich as yet for my blood.

    I think 2 Gigs space and 50 - 75 gigs transfer p.m. would be more than enough.

    dpms hosting is very bad. Support is non exsistent and I asked for a refund but they wont give me although they have a 90 day money back guarantee.(it says on their website)

    stay away from them.

    You should be able to find a webhost that provides a decent support service for ~ 2GB storage and about 50GB of bandwidth within your price range as there are plenty of hosts offering reseller plans and there is likely a host that will work best for you.

    Choosing a host that offers some kind of money-back guarantee is a wise choice as it will let you try out their quality of support without risking too much from the bank!

    If you are looking for a host at that price, qoozz.com, may help you, though personally it isn't a wise move to sign up to that sort of deal. Would look at increasing what you are willing to pay by about 2 to 3 times.

    Hope that Helps
