Recommended Reseller Hosting?

Hi Guys,

I need to buy a reseller hosting plan to use for my offline clients websites. I live in europe and I have a lot of problems with my Bluehost reseller account.

I am looking for a reseller account where I can buy a dedicated IP for each client site. Hostgator do it but we need to buy a SSL certificate with dedicated IP ($50).

Do you have some suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best Regards,
Yarvua

    You will have the Dedicated IP issue no matter which provider you go with.

    With IP's (IPV4 anyway) now exhausted web hosts can no longer hand out IP's at the drop of a hat. Any Dedicated IP provided to a customer must have proper justification, which basically means that you should only be provided with a Dedicated IP if it's not possible to use a shared IP for the same purpose.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your answer.

    I want to buy dedicated IP's because my offline clients site are under Worpress and I want to add an autoresponder plugin and a smtp service (mandrill.com) to their sites.

    It's not better with a dedicated IP?

    Best regards,
    Yarvua

      The question to ask is do Mandrill.com require each site to be on a Dedicted IP in order for their service to work?

      If the answer is no, and Mandrill will work fine with the sites all sharing an IP then there is no need for you to use a Dedicated IP.

        The answer is............................no !

        I just think that a dedicated IP will be better for the delivrability and reputation, but I am not an expert, I only create websites for small businesses.

        Thank you very much for your message.

          No worries!

          If you are using Mandrill wouldn't the mails be sent through their servers anyway, rather than the server hosting the websites? In which case the reputation would be based on the IP's belonging to Mandrill rather than the IP your site(s) reside on.

    Hi,

    I suggest to you softlayer.com
    I use from 2008 and works fine.
    A couple of years ago, hostgator use to rent all their servers from softlayer. I don't know now.
    The techical support of softlayer is very fast and professional.
    I live in Europa, if you need professional help to take care of linux servers, drop me a pm.
    Regards,

    Look at EuroVPS (reseller plans under shared category).
    If you want USA, look at Hostdime, Stablehost, Stream101, or MDD Hosting.

    Forget the EIG hosts like BlueHost, Hostgator, etc (same company, FYI).

    Dedicated IP doesn't always mean anything. Blacklists routinely drop whole ranges. So pick a good host above all else. Most quality hosts won't give a dedi IP without justification anyway.

    Hi,

    Thank you very much.
    hostdime and stream101 are similar to what I want.

    In my research I found these companies but I do
    not know except Namecheap (I use them for my domains)
    and Justhost:

    fusionrax.com
    pelcohost.com
    hosting24.com (unlimited disk space)
    a2hosting.com (RAID-10 storage + SSD 300% faster, seems to be good?)
    datapacket.net (windows plan unlimited disk space for $14.95)

    Someone has tried one of them?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Yarvua

    Some of those hosts have bad reviews.
    Others appear to be no-name (possible kiddie/amateur)
    DO NOT shop by price alone, or fake "unlimited" or ridiculous high limits.
    Be careful.

      I am not looking for the lowest price only or "all unlimited".
      I am looking for the best valur for money.

      I wanted to try:
      Hostdime.com and a2hosting.com, and if I am not happy I'll
      try Namecheap or Justhost.

      Thank you very much.

      Have a good day,

        Good question! It's pretty much impossible to find genuine reviews of the big hosts on Google since it's saturated with junk affiliate blogs promoting the service so the "reviewer" can get their commission.

        Your best bet is to head on over to www.webhostingtalk.com and have a search on there. It's populated with users that actually use the companies they talk about, rather than affiliates who are just out to make a quick buck.

          Amen.

          There a few things to do.

          1. Read reviews at webhostingtalk.com forums to see what real people suggest.

          2. 99.9% of "review" lists are fake. Those people just want to use you for commissions, and really don't give a $hit if the service they recommend is any good. A few of us do try to help other people, however. I only know of 3-4 useful sites/lists.

          3. Avoid the "big brand names" that paid for it. Those hosts suck. Godaddy, 1&1, Yahoo, etc. And then there's the EIG brands...

          4. Learn who the 50+ EIG brands are and avoid them. Here's a hint: almost all them them promise "unlimited" hosting, and have similar features. Hostgator, Bluehost, JustHost, Hostmonster, iPage, Fatcow, etc. Lots of people get duped into thinkng they're "switching" hosts, but they're not.

          5. Consider a rock solid host like Stablehost, MDD Hosting, Site5, Arvixe, etc. Some offer unlimited, some don't. All are going to be found at WHT, as legitimate hosts. Of those you listed, only Hostdime is one I'd suggest. (In fact, it's really good!)

          Then you'll be okay.
