I am looking for a reliable web host to send customers to. One who has both NT and Unix capabilities. Also who offers Miva Merchant.
One who will do all the tech, support and billing for my web hosting customers and offer a reasonable commission.

A proven track record is required as I have been burned before.

Any information is appreciated. Thanks.

pair.com offers a reseller package but you have to do all your own billing and they don't offer NT hosting. I use them exclusivly because they are rock solid and very professional.

We don't offer NT, but I know that OLM.com offers just about as close to what your asking as your going to find. They are a huge company, and been around for a long time.
The problem is that they require resellers to have a high dollar account, and the reseller cost per plan is not as low as most other hosts - but they do cover the support.

You may be better off finding one that convers your needs in Unix/linux, and another for the NT needs. I say this because of the different tech needs for each OS. You want a specialist in each field, usually a company that has both is only proficient in one or the other.

Good luck in your search.

Hi Shost

I am willing to use 2 different hosts for Unix and NT. I guess it is also best not to put all the eggs in one basket.

The perfect situation would be to send all hosting business to the host and let him handle all tech, billing and setup. I would handle web design, search promotion, merchant accounts, development,shopping carts,etc for my customers.

Dont know if I can say this but all I am looking for is 20% of fees. I dont feel this is excessive and I believe is fair compensation.
