I’m trying to get into the reseller hosting space, and I am looking for the optimal provider. I’ve done some research online, and come up with a list of features I need; to be part of the package, NOT add-ons, upsells or separately purchased.
25+ Control panels
2 GB RAM & 2 CPU cores per Control panel
Minimum 50 GB NVMe SSD storage
SSH access for each Control panel
LiteSpeed Web Server is a must!
Bonus points for a mail suite e.g MailChannels (not a deal breaker)
Billing and management e.g Blesta or WHMCS
Free SSL certificates with the option to upgrade
Security options e.g Immunify360
Fully white-labeled (double bonus if that includes the knowledgebase)
eNom Domain Reseller Account
Custom Name Servers
No LVE Limits (not a deal breaker)
Website reviews and feature write-ups are essentially marketing tools. For more dependable info, I thought ForumWeb members with first-hand experience would be best placed to point me in the right direction.
I’ve set aside a monthly budget of around $30-$40, which I can painfully push to $50 if the provider is worth it. Now, based on the research, I’ve shortlisted 5 potential candidates:
- 20i – Too good to be true?
- InMotion – A bit on the expensive side, are they worth it?
- NoFrillsCloud – Billing options seem to be add-on purchases.
- ResellerWiz – Didn’t see a domain reseller option. Wonder how good DirectAdmin is vs cPanel.
- ChemiCloud – Feature set is great, wondering how they perform in real life.
PS: Was warned that A2 hosting had performance issues.
I’d greatly value any insights and feedback; especially first-hand experiences with any of these providers in comparison to each other. Or if you think there’s a gem I’ve overlooked, I’m all ears.
Thanks in advance for the wisdom you share! Looking forward to hearing from the community.
