    How Do you decide on a reseller?

    With soooooooo many deals available and so little info on all their providers, how do you guys decide on who to take for a reseller account?

    I currently have three on my short list and would love to hear any opinion on any one of them. Since I am getting a reseller account, the mgmt of my clients will be done by me, so the number one priority would be uptime and customer support.

    1) Nirmani
    1GB disk / 8GB xfer / 4 IPs / $20 per month


    2) v3Host
    6.5GB disk / 150GB xfer / 5 IPs / $20 per month

    3) peoplehost
    1GB disk / 12GB xfer / No IPs / $25 per month

    Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Read, read, read. Take some time and read the reviews and customer comments here first. Contact each business and talk to them directly. Remember, many times you get what you pay for. If you're staking your own reputation on that of your reseller dealer, don't assume cheaper is always better.

    To be honest, on average, the approx package for a decent reseller is:

    1 GB Storage Space
    20 GB Bandwidth
    All the usual features
    2 IPs / 2 Nameservers
    $20 - $24

    Its hard to give a price, but ever sence I started checking out hosting companies them figures about are about average.

    Look around at the companies with good reviews, and good satisfied customers.

    Hey, he has the same name as me!!!!!!
    NOOOOOOOO!

    But Abbas (my god, I am talking to myself!), you've just answered your question regarding how to choose:

    "so the number one priority would be uptime and customer support."

    Have fun.
