I’ve finally started with my own web hosting. I got a reseller account on a Cpanel/WHM box that I’ve installed and still maintain. The box runs the most recent CentOS, version 5.1.
And I got several clients to start with and I want more
The reason I started with the web hosting was a part from frustration with the big hosting companies, like Lunar Pages. I’ve used their services and thought really good things about them but then problems started and they were really not doing their support job right. I have already wrote about them and I will make a separate post about the latest incident.
Right now, I can not offer hundreds of gigabytes of web space like they can but I can offer a professional support and hosting tailored to customer needs. I realized through experience this is the most important thing.
You can just throw away all those gigabytes (which IMO you’re not even going to use, most people have small websites) but when problems appear (and they will, no matter how good a hosting is) you want to know fairly what’s going on and how do you get that fixed. I fit there much more than those shaky support people at big hosting companies.
But to tell you all the truth, I’ve been really impressed with Cpanel support. Really.
They do a wonderful job fixing the issues and they’re that good that I forgive them for their bugs.
Err, maybe not all the bugs but they got credit with me. Keep up the good work guys.
And you can contact me anytime to get a fair offer on your web hosting needs.
Or maybe you want to make a web hosting company? I’m open to do that for you too
