Looking for a reseller with these Specifications...
I am new to this hosting business.
I am actually a designer and I few sites of my own. I am currently pay a lot for my site, for a small space.
I am looking for a bigger space and am planning to use lot of streaming and lot of stock images.
So I am planning to take a reseller account and share the space with few others friends whom I design sites for, but not in a big time hosting business plan.
I may host a max of 50 domains in a long run.
I use joomla and other scripts in each site.
These are things I am looking for:
Disk Space: 5GB to 10GB
bandwidth: 50 GB
Free search engine submit feature
Unlimited sub domains
Preferably unlimited domains also
Good support, who has time to help me when I have doubts...
and 99.9% uptime
And regarding the price I have few doubts..
Few offers start at $5, this looks attractive but will there be any problems with them. Is there anything that higher the price, better the service?
I have read enough reviews and keeping the price in mind I have short listed these providers.
There are lots of offers in the range 10-25$, you should look at features the host provides. I would recommend you to study offers of the following companies:
biggest-hosting.com at 19$ (free Clientexec billing system, free web hosting templates,SSL)
resellerzoom 12-19$ (30 days moneyback guarantee)
ahosting.biz 20$( fast response time)
I have to agree. It is hard now to find a really good host. When searching keep this in mind:
1. Do lots of research.
2. Ask each host that you are interested as many questions as you may have and see how they respond and how fast they reply.
3. Look for customer reviews but be advice that not all reviews can be trusted.
4. How long they been around, don't trust on Whois data because many times host change their domains name to fit their needs.
5. Cheap, especially for reseller is almost 90% not good.
6. Take a chance, many host offer free trial or some type of free month offer and try them out.
How do you know if hosting is reliable? Email to sales and see how's their response but keep in mind sales is not 24x7. 5GB to 10GB for $5 is way low price, it won't be "reliable" hosting you ever have. Increase your budget around $15-$30.
As I state many times, go with a provider that offers a money back guarantee. The good ole saying still goes you get what you pay for. However, if you have a money back guarantee and you don't like the service then you can ditch em

There are providers on your list that don't have reseller packages at all (hostmonster), or they don't have typical reseller hosting accounts (lunarpages). In the vast majority of cases, shared hosting accounts don't come with the ability to give each user (friend) his own, separated control panel.
Make sure the account you buy, fits your needs!

Submitting to search engines is virtually useless. Get some links to your site from sites that are already indexed instead, so that the search engine spiders/robots can find it.
