"I need a new host!" is the thread title used by ORAHost21, who joined WHT towards the start of this year, and he then goes on to post quite a specific (and possibly challenging) list of requirements including free migration of his website, WHMCS and client sites from two other hosts, SSD storage, white label server, free SSL, 40GB+ storage, unlimited bandwidth, a marketplace, CDN and caching, staging ability, and temp domains. That's quite a shopping list but it shows that he's put some thought into this and is already researching. So, for our resident experts in reseller hosting, how would you go about narrowing down a host based on his list. Any recommendations based on your own experiences?
BoomGeeth kicks off this thread, commenting that the second wave of COVID in India means that he is losing customers day by day because they are not renewing, possibly due to financial issues. However, since many of us were sent into lockdown last year, asked to work from home, and couldn't go out other than for excercise and shopping for essentials, the ways we work, shop, sell, socialise and communicate have all changed. Many retail businesses are reducing their physical footprints and moving online, our visits to the shopping mall have been replaced by deliveries to our door, and we communicate online with our workmates, friends and family rather than meeting face to face. So how has all this affected your business? Are you picking up a new type of customer? Have you expanded into new markets, or added new features to cater for the changes of the past 18 months? Share your thoughts in the thread.
