In Response To: Looking for web hosting advice... (BenV)
Check out resellerzoom.com (which is a division of HostingZoom.com). They are a CPanel host and therefore have Fantastico. They have reseller accounts for under $5 92,000MB/30G) and you can host up to 50 domains on that $5 account (and unlimited subdomains on every domain hosted). I have been using them for 8 months now and I can't say anything bad about them. Great support (although I rarely need it) and I'm very happy with the up-time (have never seen my sites go down yet, although I'm sure it's happened a few times). They don't oversell their servers as much as other higher priced reseller seem to, not that I am speaking of any one particular host (HostGator...lol...they WAY oversell servers and their support is terrible, IMO. Also, they find every reason in the world to tell you you have to upgrade to a more expensive reseller account if not get a dedicated server. BTW, HostGator's non-reseller hosting says unlimited domains but it is not true multi-domain hosting so be forewarned. Basically, you park unlimited domains and host them on subdomains of your main domain. That's not true multi-domain hosting. They are very dishonest in the way they market this. I would just stay away from HostGator).
You mentioned about looking for the good and bad on hosts. That's hard. You will find good reviews and bad reviews on every host. The fact is that people have different needs and many do not tell you the whole story. Had I listened to the negative posts about ResellerZoom on WebHostingTalk.com and not listened to the positive reviews, I would have never tried this great host.
IMO, you just have to find a host that has what you need and give them a shot to see if they workout for you. If not, look for another host. That's why you should never, EVER pay the yearly fee right away just to get a discount. Pay monthly. then when you are convinced they will work out for you, pay them yearly, if they offer yearly discounts.
BTW, resellerzoom only has UNIX plans as far as I know. But who knows, I never even bother to check for Windows hosting so even if they offer it I would have never noticed.
So I would definitely contact them and ask any pre-sales questions you have in order to figure out if in fact they "fit the bill" for you. My guess is that they will.
PS. I have used Neureal (mentioned in an earlier reply) in the past. I liked them very much. I used them for over 2 years. However, they are not a Cpanel host. They use H-Sphere for their control panel, which has it's advantages, but I like CPanel better. Plus, as you know, Cpanel hosting accounts come with Fantstico among many other perks.
PPS. No, you don't have to be a reseller to use a reseller account. It's just that if you want true multi-domain hosting with CPanel, you gotta go with a reseller account. All other hosts I have seen that are true multi-domain but not reseller do not use Cpanel (usually H-sphere or a proprietary control panel).

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.
