Identifying reseller or real host?
I have just been thinking these few days as my server seems pretty unstable and I wonder how would I be able to tell as whether my host is "real host" with own data centerSmile, or just yet another reseller?Sad

Yes, I can check thru their DNS record via WHOIS. But as most reseller hosting can also set their own DNS, checking this record wouldn't be able to provide a clear indication isn't it?

What tool or way could be used to identify between reseller and real host with own data center?Cool
that might be a tough one.
have you tried googling your hosting company?
or the hosting forums might have more info.
I think reseller have some large urls in the domain.
I mean domain is redirects to the large url. I do not have any experience with ressellers. But I saw some like that.
Try doing an ARIN lookup on the IPs/subnets. If they are reselling a larger provider - it should show up there. - easy!
I'm glad you asked since this is a good question. I've been thinking about getting into reseller hosting myself, and I want to be successful at it.

Even though reseller hosting is basically just a clone of who the reseller bought it through, people want to buy through a trust worthy name.

I've also wondered how this could be found out.
thanks for share

Hmm depends, you could ask them directly. Usually they will offer resellers from the server they got their reseller from so that's the easiest way of finding out. Big Grin
