    From your hosting provider?

    I've decided to start selling off my dedicated server.

    In your position what do you want to see from your host?
    How much do you want to pay?
    Do you want unmetered mailing capabilities?
    Unmetered banwidth and storage?
    Unlimited SQL, add-on domains, sub domains, email accounts FTP accounts?
    Fantastico deluxe? (wordpress, joomla, zen cart, and much more)

    What else?

    I need ideas.

    Thanks

    I want to see my host showing it's reliability and capability. For example, hosting large sites. I want to feel safe and worry free, that I know my sites are up 24/7. No time to worry about every last one of them.

    those as mentioned by macdonjo3. a 24/7 support will be good but a response within a 24hrs timeframe would be good enough for me.

    How much do you want to pay?
    depends

    Do you want unmetered mailing capabilities?
    i dont get this. meaning unlimited bandwidth for mailing only?

    Unmetered bandwidth and storage?
    unmetered bandwidth. at least 20gb of storage for me

    Unlimited SQL, add-on domains, sub domains, email accounts FTP accounts?
    Fantastico deluxe? (wordpress, joomla, zen cart, and much more)
    yes please

    The main factor for me would be cost effectiveness (may be 7-8 dollars/month) and include unlimited add-on domains along with other standard features.

    Those mentioned by others, plus 24/7 spanish support for fully managed VPS's at a US datacenter (such a particular needing, I´d say :)).

    That's definitely a possibility. We have no problem hosting large sites.



    Support is not an issue, will have basic phone support and unlimited email support with a 24 hour or less time frame for responses.

    Pricing can be extremely cheap for a good hosting plan, I just don't want to cut myself short.

    As far as mailing, it's not unlimited bandwidth, it's un-metered, meaning we don't put any restrictions on how many you send out.

    Storage is not an issue as we can always add more hard disk space on our server.

    That's what we are shooting for as far as price. We will keep it unmetered as much as possible.
    $7-8 is about what I was thinking for the most part.

    Ha, I wish I could offer VPS's and spanish support, but unfortunately we don't speak spanish.

    No worries, mate. Thanks anyway.

    BTW, Do you know of any other host from US who could accomplish this "so particular" demand? (please, don´t say Hostdime as is a big no no).

    Ha, thanks. It's more of a side project as I'm not using near the amount of space I have on my servers. Might as well put it to use! :)

    Would be optimal to keep around 10tb but we can adjust accordingly. That's why we are pushing unmetered.
