[thelist] Urgently looking for a new server

I, too am looking for a new hosting service.  I keep IXWebhosting.com and
NetworkRedux.com both.  NetworkRedux is more robust (read here, fewer
problems during the year), but IXWebhosting offers support through online

I am looking for a new unix/linux reseller hosting service that offers
online chat support, support blog or log communications, and superior uptime
(like say Rackspace).  I need an affordable reseller package with unlimited
domains, etc. with the latest reliable PHP package.  Somehow the online chat
makes me feel more in control when a client has, say, an email problem and
expects to me resolve it.  I don't want to tell the client I'll take care of
it then have to wait an hour to find out what the problem really is or if
it's resolved while I'm fretting.  

I am willing to pay a bit more, but cannot afford rackspace prices and need
a package, not a we'll build it to your spec service.  

This thread is very helpful.  I am too, mostly a lurker/rookie and very
grateful for all the combined brains!

   If you don't have any hangups about hosting on a Microsoft OS,
CrystalTech is fantastic.  They have everything you're looking for, decent
pricing, great admin tools, and -- in my four years of hosting with them --
excellent support and uptime.
