Reseller Hosting – Httpme.com
Many web hosting businesses start out with a reseller account and then move up to more dedicated equipment as the business grows. It is a very affordable way to get started in web hosting without making a huge investment into own hardware or loading up on a big monthly expense by leasing a dedicated server.
We here at the Web Hosting Resource Kit use a combination of leased hardware and reseller accounts for our different ventures. As a long time customer of HTTPME.com we feel we have a very good insight into the quality service that HTTPME.com provides. Here is a review of our own experience.
We are using HTTPME.com services since 2003. We were there when Aussie Bob sold the business to Voxtreme.com, we pretty much left with Voxtreme.com losing its grip on quality, and we came back when Steven of Insiderhosting.com bought HTTPME.com from Voxtreme. So, we have seen the up and downs at HTTPME.com first hand. The "new" team over there is fanatical about support and the features provided with each account become more and more. Almost anything a reseller can dream of to get from his reseller host – HTTPME.com covers it. RVSkin, RAID, CPanel with Fantastico, and external backups are just a few highlights provided by Steven and his team.
Our servers are state of the art 2U Intel Dual XEON 2.6GHz, 2x512KB cache, 2.0GB ECC RAM, 3 x 120GB SATA Hard Drives with Hardware Raid 1 for hard drive redundancy, Hardened Secure Kernel and Redundant Power Supply Units. End Quote
We loaded some very demanding scripts onto our own reseller account and those servers have yet to show any issues with that. Performance has always been great and uptime is excellent, too. So, the promises made on the HTTPME.com website are not empty words. Speaking of support: The support over at HTTPME is outstanding. We average about 1-2 tickets a month and our experience has been extremely satisfying. One minor ticket slipped through the cracks once (we had to wait for a dedicated IP address for a site and none were available), but the moment we reminded them about this still open "low priority" ticket, support jumped at it, apologized and fixed it. Usually all our tickets were taken care of (solved!!!!) within 30 minutes at the latest.
Network connectivity is awesome. Steven recently added another top tier provider to the already impressive list of quality providers. It is not a surprise that HTTPME.com is used by so many folks from around the globe. The connectivity to any place on this planet is outstanding.
Prices. HTTPME is not the cheapest provider of reseller hosting accounts out there. But over the years we can confirm that in web hosting you often get what you pay for. For anyone serious about their website or business, should think twice before going with a $15 reseller account and what kind of support and value they hope to get out of it. At HTTPME.com the higher prices are fully justified and worth it. We could not sleep at night if it would not be for HTTPME.com keeping those servers running.
Last but not least the forums community at HTTPME.com is awesome. It has slowed down a little bit over the years, but the core group of people populating the boards is awesome. No matter if in need of personal support or when having a technical question – the community steps forward and helps.
So, if in the market for a web hosting reseller account or a multi-domain account, HTTPME.com is always our first choice.
