MegaByteHosting has a little something for nearly everyone, from economically priced shared hosting to powerful gaming servers. We’ll be taking a look at their reseller plans for this review, and you’ll be able to choose from 5 well-priced plans. In particular, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at their Reseller Package 1.

This plan starts at $24.95 per month and does offer discounts if you purchase more than one month’s worth of hosting at a time. You’ll get 10 gigs of disk space and 350 gigs of monthly data transfer, which is very generous for this price range. Since you can host an unlimited amount of domains under this plan, the opportunity to turn a profit without having to cram too many customers onto one account is very attainable.

CPanel and WHM are provided for management of your account and for your customers. You can also have your own nameservers, which is always nice to see in reseller hosting. One possible downside is that the IP addresses are shared, but this shouldn’t be too much of a problem, especially if you’re running a smaller reseller business. It would have been nice to see at least one dedicated IP address, but this is a small sticking point.

One issue is that they do not provide any information on the amount of allowable email addresses, FTP accounts and MySQL databases. They have missed an important selling point, particularly for resellers who wish to offer their clients an unlimited amount of each one. These plans would most likely sell better if they would add this information in an easy to find location. We highly recommend contacting their sales department for more information on this point before purchasing a hosting plan.

Technical support is provided through their help desk, but again, a lack of information on hours of operation is present. It’s difficult to get a good idea of what a hosting company has to offer when they don’t provide enough information to easily make a decision. Most customers will most likely pass them by when they can’t find the information they need to know about a plan quickly. This is an area that could definitely use some improvement.

Overall, while the price is very good, it’s difficult to recommend this hosting company. Hopefully they will add more details on their reseller hosting plans to assist their potential customers. They’ve done a good job in their shared and dedicated areas, but their reseller area does need some work. This hosting company would have been ranked a lot higher if they had included this information.
