Interesting

For some reason there is no link to this forum on your main page... I found it through Google. (Great to have when your customers have only good things to say about you).
2 Questions:

1)Just needed to ask if pointing domains to client sites in my main domain subdirectories while charging them for this space is a violation of any policies you may have.

Another host said it was a violation of their TOS and required an upgrade to some "reseller account". Just want to make sure that is not the case here. All I want is 1 account to manage all my client domains and files.

2)I need to transfer over my SQL tables from another host but am relatively inexperienced with them. Is it easy to do? Is there a FAQ somewhere? If I can't do it, Can I pay fluid to do it for me?

Right now we do not offer reseller plans yet. And we do not have such restriction on our AUP, so feel free to resell our space. Please do keep in mind, our shared hosting is not meant for reseller purposes and hence it will have some shortages compared to a real reseller plans. We are planning to offer reseller plans in the near future. When we do so, we reserve the right to modify our AUP regarding this matter and may require you to upgrade to our reseller plans as well.

Having said so, please feel free to take a look at our Virtual Private Server (VPS) plans. Our VPS starts at $24.95 and it offers a greater flexibility for your to resell your space and bandwidth. One of our target market for VPS is resellers. Hence, you won't find any trouble in the future reselling your web space/bandwidth.

well looking at that VPS sales material I guess I am not really a reseller of any kind since I don't give my clients any direct access to their hosting account and I want everything shared and not private.

That would also be a bad fit for me since one of the differentiating features you guys point out is that Virtual Hosting and not VPS is an "Excellent solution for beginners".. which in terms of server maintenance and "root" nonsense I truly am.

okay I did just that... signed up and mailed your support team to move my Tables over.

I'm trying out a few hosts right now before I make a complete switch... and so far you guys seems to be on top of your game in terms of support and server speed (At my old host... FTP was so time consuming.. At yours, it's blazingly fast).

Thanks Dave.
