    Hosts aren't allowed to make you offers directly, you have to contact them instead; also, be weary of scammers e-mailing you.

    Most hosts don't have my specific requirements listed on their sites.

    FYI it always helps if you post a budget so that hosts can see whether or not they can provide this to you

    I assume you mean SmarterTools bundle? Also have you considered Dotnetpanel as a replacement for Helm? Helm from what I've read is not going to be supported in the future.

    Yes to first question.

    DotNetPanel would work as well.

    Honestly, I don't really have a fixed budget at this time. However, I'd be lying if I said that cost would not an issue.

    Yeah, a budget really helps these guys out when it comes to offering you something , or at least help point you in the right direction!

    The budget is whatever it takes to get this done.

    The need is there and it is somewhat urgent.

    I would also need a firewall.

    Would you be OK with a software firewall? Managed, or unmanaged?

    The software firewall could also work.

    You should look at a few companies, Limestone networks, gigenet, jaguarpc, softlayer, 10tb, singlehop, and netdepot.

    You don't need to have an exact budget, but you really need to have some sort of idea in mind, just like you do when you go out and buy anything else (car, house, boat, etc). You don't go to the car dealer and say "Hey I want a car what do you recommend?" One of the main things the sales person will ask you is how much you are willing to spend. Without that information, he/she can't narrow down what to recommend to you.

    Even if it is something like $200-$500 range or a $500 to $800 range, that will be a lot more helpful then nothing at all.

    I do not know many providers that sell Helm licenses, the only one I can for sure say sells it is Softlayer, which definitely fits within your budget.
