    MCHost the best you can get?

    Hi,

    I am starting to resell and MCHost looks really good! I did searches on this forum for them and all comments are good!
    Are they really the best you can get (I like them offering Cpanel)? I also love their design of their site, such things make my decision easier

    And does anyone has experience with them in Holland? Is there a Dutch reseller who uses them? If so, hwo about the speed, is it fast? And service etc. (I know this generally applies, but since Holland is in a other time zone US businesses tend too respond much later).

    THank you in advance, any else who has good or bad comments on MCHost may post here!

    Everybody has their own opinions, but as far as I know they are an excellent reseller host. Its good to shop around first rather than go straight to MCHost.

    good choice. im with mchost for over half ayear now and while they had their share of issues months ago but who deosnt and they are still truly the best reseller host i have been with. lots of features you dont see on their site like custom scripts for resellers and cpanel advance. see you over at the forums.

    You'll find a mix of good and bad reports about mchost here. They're a good provider. Far from perfect, but good. Maybe dig a little deeper in your searching....

    You might also want to have a look at http://www.voxtreme.com .

    They have the best support I experienced with 4 resellers so far.

    Also, I know that the dutch registrars have some restrictions concerning nameservers. I you go to http://forum.voxtreme.com , look for Change. He's Dutch and I'm sure he can help you with that.

    I've been with MC Host and Voxtreme. Voxtreme is far far superior.

    In what way is VoxTreme superior over MCHost? Except the more space and traffic for lesser money?

    By the way, maybe a stupid question, but VoxTreme provides 4 ip's. Does that mean that I can give my customers only 4 IP's (so the rest will get dynamic or something) or is that for my hosting account and can I give my clients also for IP's each? How does it work?

    Also, I did a tracert on MCHost and was that a part of their traffic runs over Cogent. Is this only for their own site of does every reseller get this too? If so, that really does NOT explain the high prices and if they run over Cogent I won't choose since I already in the Netherlands so pings are already higher.

    Most probably, you get the 4Ips for your main account. 1 for your main domain and maybe 2 for your nameservers. Your domains that you setup for your clients in your WHM, would be name based accounts where they share the IP of the server.

    If you ask Voxtreme, I'm sure they can sell or give you additional IPs if you really need them...

    We currently have multi-homed bandwidth through several providers, including Level3, Aleron and Cogent, as well as direct peering with 14 networks in Atlanta. We will also be completely getting rid of Cogent in the very near future (announcement hint to current clients ) and replacing it with another provider, even though we've had better uptime and performance than with previous bandwidth providers such as AT&T or Sprint.

    Any provider should let you buy additional IPs, most usually at around $0.50 (50 cents) per IP. In any way, choose the plan that fits best your business structure and clients

    I have also been with both.

    MCHost is a fine company, no question, but so is Voxtreme. If support is important to you, Voxtreme is the better choice.

    Their staff is unbelievable!

    To clarify (thank you to Marc and Bob for mentioning) we provide 4 IPs to start with, and you can purchase more when you need.

    Uptime, billing, security, responsiveness, support, etc. I really don't feel like drudging up old water here, but suffice it to say that the difference is very noticeable. My sites are up, support questions get answered, billing isn't a problem and the staff are friendly. MC Host may very well have improved since I was with them, but when I was I simply couldn't run a business on the service I received. YMMV.

    Een weinig is possible (nice mix up of Dutch and English) but that would assume that Kiwi is a "kakker"
    I won't post the real translation of "kakker" (well ok, it's ****ter), but it means that he is a more arrogant rich fellow (hope I explained it right Diederik )

    I have accounts with both companies. MCHost since April, Voxtreme since May.

    Uptime with both has been stellar. I haven't noticed any downtime on the servers I am on.

    As I was explaing to someone else today, the chief difference, for me at least, has been in support. Both do a great job on this, but how they get there is different.

    Voxtreme responds VERY quickly to tickets with complete answers. MCHost takes a little longer, but gets the job done.

    Both their support teams are technically proficient and friendly. Especially when you have a brain fart and miss something obvious.

    Voxtreme's community of resellers is smaller and growing, whcih means that the contained experience in their forums is smaller. MCHost on the other hand seems to have more experienced resellers and their forums are very large and in-depth.

    The only other difference is billing systems. I had to change credit cards. At MCHost it was a snap. At Voxtreme it takes a little more work to make it happen.

    That's really all I have noticed personally. I really like being a customer of both. Both are excellent choices and you can't go wrong choosing either one of them. Rock solid thumbs up for both.

    Good luck!

    Hello, we never recieved a request for a refund. If we had we would have refunded like we did for everyone else.

    Also all our clients were GIVEN to MCHost. I guess you failed to read our announcements?
