I need to change my hosting provider. It appears that they have recently changed management or were bought by another provider although they haven't told their clients anything about it. I am really sick of this crap but don't have a stable enough connection (residential roadrunner) to run my own webserver and provide a 99.9% uptime guarantee to my clients.

I am looking for a reseller-type plan that allows for a large number of domains, individualized control panel access per domain, and preferbly assigned IPs per domain.

Any recs?

Thanks

I've been with UKWSD for about 3 years and have nothing but praise for them. Their support is really excellent.

Here's their reseller plans: http://ukwebsolutionsdirect.co.uk/reseller.php

Did some research and hostgator seems fairly reliable. I just signed up with them. Thanks.

I just got a reply to my support e-mail from my current host and they blamed everything on me even though it's impossible for it to be my fault, basic functions of PHPMyAdmin are FUBARing......oy vey.

What kind of "customer service" is that? Evil

Please PM me the name of your ex-host so that I may avoid it. Thanks.

Probably too late now you've chosen one, but I've found http://www.hostsearch.com/ useful in the past as they also provide ratings and customer comments for a lot of hosts.

My soon to be EX host is cpanelhosting.com

They were apparently bought out around the first of the year. Before that service, tech support, and functionality were exemplary and I had zero complaints.

Since that time functionality has declined, one of my sites will not display not matter how much I complain to the support peeps, and I often receive no response at all to my questions/concerns.

The issue referenced above was a problem with PHPMyAdmin. Some basic functionalities were not working. I was only trying to use built-in functions that are native to PHPMyAdmin and the tech support dude told me it was my fault and that I was trying to do something I was not supposed to do.

I did eventually get some action out of him and he claimed to be working on the problem but the program is still not working and I have given up. I am uploading files to hostgator as I type this and will be changing DNS for my nameservers later today.

I could not find out the name of the company that bought cpanelhosting.com but the tech support guys e-mail came from cheapwebhost.us domain. I would avoid them, too.

Cheers
