My current provider is not communicating with me very well about upgrades. There is no forum, and mailings go out either an hour before they make their upgrades (in non-emergency situations) or not at all. Consequently, when they do upgrade something, my clients are caught unawares - because I don't have a Windows hosting account; I keep everything on RHEL, but resell Windows hosting because I was approached by a local client with a request for hosting services...and they have to use Windows. I've been with my current reseller provider for almost two years.

I'm looking for the following:

RESELLER-SPECIFICS:
* 300 MB of disk space
* 15 GB of bandwidth on HTTP, FTP, and POP ports
* ability to create my own hosting plans
* 7 domains
* 7 subdomains
* ability to park domains (at least 4)
* 20 FTP accounts
* at least 200 POP email accounts
* private nameservers

DEDICATED-SPECIFICS:
* Windows 2003
* Pentium, Xeon, or other higher-end processor (no Celerons)
* 60 GB hard drive or larger
* 150 GB bandwidth

BOTH:
* multidomain hosting capability
* mailing list capability (iMail or SmarterMail, don't care which)
* stats programs (SmarterStats is fine; so is Urchin or LiveStats)
* access to raw log files
* ASP, ASP.NET, Perl, PHP, FrontPage
* Access, MySQL, and SQL database support
* 7 mSQL databases (total space for all of them: 350 MB)
* allow external linking to said databases
* ColdFusion MX would be nice
* control panel (don't care which - I've only used Helm)
* regular backups (yes, I plan to make my own and advise clients of the same)
Cost for all of the above:
Reseller acct: USD$90 / month
Managed dedi: USD$180 / month

Support options:
* support forum
* phone support option would be nice (pay-per-incident is fine; business-hours-only is fine)
* 24/7 helpdesk
* knowledgebase

I am looking for either a reseller or a managed dedicated because I think that USD$180 / month might be a little low for a Windows managed dedicated and the SQL databases; but I'm willing to look at either option. If you know of a company but haven't used them, please say so. If you have used them, please say how long and give a brief summation of your experiences.

The clients are five bar associations, and they link the databases to servers in the respective home offices.

I'm looking to move in the next month or two - sooner is better, but I want to have time to fully research the company before making the move.

Hello Lesli, we can get you a windows server for $180.00 a month. With a $150.00 setup. The server can be setup with everything you want. Since it will be your server you will be able to do everything you need and have anything you need install. I can see what you would like installed and have to use. If you have anything else you want installed at the setup there will not be no charge to add these. There will be a charge for modules or programs that you need if you want them after everything is setup. This can go from $20.00 setup to $75.00 to setup. All depends on what you want.

Here is the kind of server you would get with us:
- 2.4GHz Pentium
- 80GB Drive
- 1024MB RAM
- 1200GB Bandwidth
- Private VLAN
- Windows
- 99.9% Network SLA
- 99.9% Power SLA

We are a small company and have had great service for all our customers. We are dedicated to give you the best service possible. Please feel free to contact us at sales. Here is the link http://www.lucnetsolutions.com/helpdesk/open.php We can talk more about this there if you like or just respond here. There will be more people to help your server questions if you go to our helpdesk.

Thanks for replying; but there seem to be a few discrepancies.

Your site doesn't say anything about SQL databases, just MySQL (which is different). Also, looking at your feature list and the mention of Fantastico, you look like a CPanel provider - which means you're on Linux, not Windows. I have a few Linux servers; but what I need now is something Windows-based, for five particular sites. Nor does your list anything about dedicated servers - just resellers and shared hosting plans. Or am I missing something? Can you please provide links to your dedicated server and Windows hosting information? I haven't been able to find it by surfing around your site.

At this time we don't advertise our servers on our website as you see. We just offer them on forums like this or other means. We are working on a script for ordering the servers. I am sorry for the confusion.

If you are still interested. We offer everything that you need. As you said, you need the following:

* multidomain hosting capability - YES
* mailing list capability (iMail or SmarterMail, don't care which) - Ether one you want installed
* stats programs (SmarterStats is fine; so is Urchin or LiveStats) - Urchin - Free for 100 accounts, 200 Accounts add $10.00 month, 300 Accounts add $20.00 a month
* access to raw log files - You have admin access to your server. So yes.
* ASP, ASP.NET, Perl, PHP, FrontPage - Yes
* Access, MySQL, and SQL database support - Yes
* 7 mSQL databases (total space for all of them: 350 MB) - Unlimited
* allow external linking to said databases - It will be your server, Yes this is possible
* ColdFusion MX would be nice - don't offer
* control panel (don't care which - I've only used Helm) - Cpanel for windows or Plesk or Helm
* regular backups (yes, I plan to make my own and advise clients of the same) - Yes

Tell us exactly what all modules and programs you will need. If there is anyothers you think you may need. Sorry I didn't post this before, he is a link of our server information http://lucnetsolutions.com/servers.php
