    Non-Turnkey Web Hosting?

    Im wondering where to find the webhosts that aren't the typical turnkey packages like hostmonster, hostgator, justhost, godaddy, etc.

    Ones like Media Temple, Aplus.net -- Where do you find other ones like this? I seem to come across them once and a blue moon on a nice website at the footer but the search engines is nothing but referrals codes to earn money on the cheap ones that are all the same.

    There are lots out there, nearly all are going to have pre-made packages (just for customer ease). Price is generally a good indicator - If they are very cheap, they are likely to want as little interaction with customers as possible and want to keep everything 100% as standard, otherwise they start loosing money instead of making it.

    I think with a simple search you can find plenty of host providers ( Non-Turnkey), also webhostdir.com/webhostingtalk forums should help you to view listing of host providers and get reviews about hosts.

    I'm not quite seeing what you are meaning by "turn-key" generally turn-key means that everything is provided from the design to the plans to the hosting etc... That you just "turn the key" and you're selling web hosting.

    Even a reseller plan at HostGator isn't *that* simple and does require a fair bit of work and knowledge to pull off.

    Best of luck.

    Maybe you could detail the differences that make, in your opinion, the offer of MediaTemple/Aplus different from the other hosts you mentioned. Godaddy is pretty different from Hostmonster.

    Maybe you just don't want hosts that use the cPanel control panel? That shouldn't be so hard to find.

    You have named 2 companies. So what is the problem. At least for now you have where to chose from.
    What is the main idea for your searches? Could you please name it?
