    Reseller hosting for Facebook Pages

    Hi,

    Now that Facebook pages requires SSL I've got to find a new host for a number of websites. Not too many, thankfully.

    At the moment I am witkh MediaTemple (gs) which is good value for money, but I can only apply one SSL to my primary domain. Their other hosting products don't quite work out either.

    So I'm looking for a reseller hosting account that would allow me to associate a SSL certificate to each domain.

    Ideally one that is quite generous with space and bandwidth, doesn't cost the earth, hosted in Australia and has a track record of good customer service.

    Any suggestions?

    Aren't those two requirements contradictory?

    Not sure, I don't know the Australia market well.

    But it would be good to ve FTPing to a server nearby rather than the other side of the world

    US servers are faster and mostly cheaper.
    SSL is also now-a-days quite cheap.

    Getting hosting+domain+ssl under $50/year is not a bad deal at all.

    Good luck.

    Cheaper? Probably so. But faster, just because they're US based? If his audience is AU based, then a server down there is going to optimize the experience of his visitors.

    He never stated that his visitors are heavily based in Australia so I am going to go ahead and recommend a US host as well. The price difference can actually allow an upgrade to VPS reseller instead for faster speeds which could be very well a good trade-off.

    $50 /year is quite cheap for hosting,domain and SSL. But how about the specs of the hosting plan, e.g space and bandwidth?

    There is cheap SSL but in order to install to each domain name, you must have 1 hosting plan to each domain name. SSL needs dedicated IP. This might cost you at least $100/year for each domain+hosting plan+SSL.

    I just did a SSL with HostGator (Texas) for $50 for the year, included all the instal fees and whatnot. There are ways to do it cheaper or even free but it is a huge headache. For Facebook you only need ONE domain to have a SSL certificate on. You then submit that domain to your Facebook app and your set to create as many pages wit that app as you wish.

    Hope that helps out.

    Thanks for the feedback. HostGator seems to get a lot of praise in the various forums I check.

    $50 per annum for a hassle free service is good value in my book.

    Not unreasonable if there is a decent amount of badnwidth / diskspace associate to each account, and the host is a good one.

    Interestingly, API call from a Facebook Page slows things down, so I'm wondering whether the ideal set up is one that is not far from where a Facebook data centre is located, rather than Australia based.

    If I go for a US based provider I could, potentially, bundle in Cloud Flare (or something along those lines) to try and speed things up. That said, I'm not sure whether including CloudFlare will interfere with SSL.
