I was just wondering if there is any scope of reseller hosting in the wake of cheaper fully managed vps and also highly attractive affiliate plans offered by the hosting companies.
Why to have reseller plan and not a managed vps which is available in as much or even at lower cost than reseller plans.
Why to have reseller hosting when you have so attractive affiliate plans.
These are two questions needed to be addressed to find scope of reseller hosting as of today.
If you have limited customers with limited resources and you are not that much familiar with the server management then go with the reseller service, else the VPS hosting is always best option.
On reseller service, you will have the limited access with some privileges. On the VPS hosting, it will be your own server with the root access so you will not have any limitation there. You can define your own plans in your own way. In reseller service, you will need to contact your web host if any issue arises while on VPS, you can take a look as it will be your own server.
The one main difference between Reseller hosting and VPS hosting.
Reseller hosting has everything you need. It is fully managed and monitored by a crack wipped team.
VPS are managed by you and monitored by you. Even if the VPS is managed they will not there to recommend the top market setups and so on. They will deliver what you are looking for but they will not be monitoring your server and so on.
cPanel License for a VPS is around $15-20.
All these costs add up. Reseller Hosting is more reliable over all.
Reseller web hosting allows the major benefit of revenue stream generation for the companies who don`t have the time, money, or resources to maintain their own servers and data centers. Furthermore, it is a great business opportunity for those who want to create a stand-alone business venture, or for those with other parallel businesses who can take advantage of the chance to sell hosting with their services.
I think VPS hosting is more better than Reseller hosting, as Reseller Hosting can distribute and mange the price level issues to accommodate for much bandwidth, disk- space and also at valuable price. whereas; VPS hosting infrastructures operate can amortize these fixed costs much larger and higher infrastructures than self hosting organization can do.
As compared to reseller, vps is considered as the best option because it uses its own disk space, RAM, CPU, IP addresses and it can be rebooted independently. Each VPS performs and executes exactly like a stand-alone server. In nearly every perspective you can see a VPS as if its a dedicated server.
Reseller hosting is not costly compare to VPS specially If you are looking for low resource. Cost of VPS is expensive because of you will be need to use control panel otherwise manual upgrade is really painful while control panel automatically upgrade your software and provide automatic patch.
VPS will give you more resources, flexibility as compared to shared reseller hosting.
The difference will be in terms of economy.. but if your have more customers then I could recommend you for VPS and if your are a starter in this industry then Shared Reseller plans
Hi, Reseller hosting is a good way to start a web hosting business under your price tag and brand name but due to its popularity it becomes hard to find a reliable reseller hosting provider but review sites will help you to take a right decision with a reliable web host.
Reseller Hosting is the easiest and the cheapest way to enter into Hosting business. You can start your Hosting business with a Reseller plan and then upgrade onto VPS or Dedicated server once your Reseller business starts flourishing.
I believe reseller hosting will remain alive. As there are too many people which would love to start their own web hosting business and reseller account is the best way to do that.
I will really prefer to you go for buying new servers, and provide VPS service, surely reseller is becoming absolute with much competition from players.
I feel that Reseller Hosting is becoming obsolete now. More and more webmasters are opting for VPS solution instead of reseller account.
VPS gives greater flexibility compared to reseller hosting which is based on shared hosting server.
