I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with my websites and the ones I host for my clients. I have enough sites that I host between my own, friends and family, and clients – that I think it’s time for either a dedicated server or a reseller hosting account.
The latter is a bit more appealing as far as cost is concerned, but I’m also trying to plan for the future. I figure I’ll be fine with the sites I host. I’m also torn between a smaller company with a more personal experience, and one of the big names like Site5 or Media Temple.
Currently I have my hosting spread out over shared hosting plans with three hosts – Bluehost, Dreamhost and A Small Orange. All of these have their pros and cons. I haven’t been thrilled or let down by any of them, but as much as I’m paying for all of those accounts, I will actually save money by switching to a reseller account with one company.
This will lead to better domain management as well – I’ve been sloppy with that recently with all of my personal domains and my business domains. My customers’ domains are all managed through Go Daddy.
Just curious what the consensus is on reseller accounts, domain management, hosting management and billing services, etc. Comments are much appreciated.
