i'm thinking getting a reseller account for hosting mutiple sites..just for my own use. they are all new sites with no traffic, i'll would like to start out small, than upgrade my plan to a more advance one.
-150mb web space
-10gb monthly bandwidth
good uptime, speed, support, under $10
i'm hosting static pages, a forum, and a photo gallery.
May I ask you why do you want a reseller account instead than a multimple domain account?
cuz i have someone to update my main page, and if i only have one account for everything , he can easily mess with other settings, which i don't feel safe that way. ( i don't know him in person, we met on a forum),
There are plenty of shared website hosting providers that allow you to have multiple cPanel logins/accounts/etc. just like a reseller account would (aka, they give you access to WHM which allows one user to create and control multiple cPanel accounts for multiple websites). Companies such as AxisHost and Dotable specialize in this type of hosting (please note that there are many many more and you could spend literally hours/days doing searches on/for these companies). There are also a true plethora of shared hosting companies that offer “addon domains” which would also allow you to host multiple websites under one account (without the need for WHM). As mentioned above, for addon domains, you can still limit FTP access, etc.
The same information that I gave to cxcx applies in your case as well. As for Steadfast, I have read plenty of good things about them here on these forums. Just do a search on the company and there are numerous testimonials, comments, etc. from their clients. By doing a little search you can get a real sense of their attitude towards their customers, the level of service they offer, and more.
