    Question DowntownHost vs. SurfSpeady vs. JaguarPC

    Hi
    I need your suggestions & comments on choosing my new Reseller host. I am already using Advance plan of ResellerZoom & I love it. They are the best and I donít have a single issue with them in the past 8 months. Their support is superb and they help me in all the problems that perhaps were not their concern. I strongly recommend them.

    However, I am starting a new site and I need more space as compare to bandwidth. The reason I am looking for a new host is just that ResellerZoom give 1GB space with 15GB bandwidth for $5 but I am looking for 20/25 GB space with 150GB bandwidth which is not possible with ResellerZoom

    After searching for about one week, I have narrowed down my list to the three providers.
    DowntownHost.Com
    SurfSpeady.Com
    JaguarPC.Com

    DowntownHost seem to have a good repute here but I canít find any good review about them in a reseller forum. So, they seem to be perfect choice for shared hosting but I am not so sure if the are good for resellers as well. Also, there is not much place to groom, no choice of VPS or Dedicated server. (I may not need it but still itís a point to consider) Their maximum bandwidth for 30GB plan is 100Gb which is not good. (I wish they would have this plan with 150GB bandwidth). Their support is so far more impressive.

    SurfSpeady has both type of reviews, good & bad but still I am considering them. Mainly because they perfectly match my requirement. Their support seem to be Ok as well, I am just not sure if they will continue to support even after I signup.

    JaguarPC also perfectly match my requirement but I am not impressed with their support. Their ďLive ChatĒ always appear offline to me. (Never get a single chance to talk to them in the past week).. Their reply to ticket is also not fast enough. (10-15 hours)

    I am leaning more towards DowntownHost but I donít like their low bandwidth package. At the end, I am not able do decide which one to go for. So please if you can recommend me something or any suggestion, I will appreciate it.

    Can't comment on surfspeedy with any authority, as I have never tried them (though I can recall many negative reviews) I have had an account with JaguarPC and I still have an account with Downtownhost. Jorge from Downtown host is a very good operator and I can recommend them without hesitation.

    Why don't you ask Downtownhost if they have a custom plan? Some host are willing to create a custom plan.

    JPC is ok with support not too good though, but when i was with them i had really ugly network issues and poor speeds , do not know if that has changed or not yet, but greg is a nice person and helps you out when needed and support from techs fails.

    With 20-25GB disk space, it's easy to use up to 150GB transfer per month, even more. And I believe he knows what he's asking

    MMAC78, if you are happy with ResellerZoom, have you tried to ask them to create a custom package for you? and how much do you prepare to pay for it?

    Not really, however, you're totally right and my question was stupid, he knows what he needs.

    Well, the fact is I will be moving one of my sites that need 6-7 GB space and using 35-40GB bandwidth per month. All other sites will be new, so I don’t know how much they will use. But with 20GB space, i don’t think 100GB Bandwidth is enough. So, just to be on safe side, I thought to go for at least 150GB.

    @linktome
    I have Requested from ResellerZoom to go for a custom package, but their reply was, we can make a custom package but for every 1GB space, you will get 15GB bandwidth for about $5/month.. This is not something that I need this time.

    The price is not an issue. When I need Quality & reliable host, I know I have to pay the price as well. But certainly I will not go for 50GB extra bandwidth for $50 with DowntownHost. (The price will come close to ResellerZoom package and with them; I can even enjoy End user support)

    I am in a fix at the moment.
