    When should I use reseller hosting?

    I could not find a reason to use reseller hosting since I have moved to a VPS. What will help an user to use reseller hosting for their websites? is it lower cost if compared with vps hosting?

    Typically, you can get more resources, at a lower price, by using a reseller account.
    If you are capable of properly managing the cost yourself, and are OK with using a free control panel instead of cPanel, you can come out ahead with a VPN.

    Reseller hosting is best when you are hosting multiple sites.
    Put it this way, lets say you host 10 websites ( domains ).

    Most web hosters have CloudLinux with limits of 1 CPU 1 GB RAM and 1-5 I/O Mbps, so if you have 10 websites, and all getting half of their resources u will technically get 5 CPU, 5 GB RAM and 25 MBps I/O

    On a VPS, you may have 2 vcores, 4 GB RAM, and an unset disk I/O ( which most VPS would classify above 20, some 40 as *resource abuse* depending on the VPS pricing and their acceptable use policy )
    If you host 10 websites of the previously mentioned, you won't havew sufficient vCores/RAM/Disk I/O.
    This difference scales with the number of websites you intend to host

    So, A reseller hosting would be better if you intend to host many websites.

    Now onto the advantages of VPS. VPS ( KVM at least ) lets you have full control of your site ( this is common knowledge ).
    But if you have one site that uses more resources ( EG. 2 cores, 4 gb ram, 20 mbps disk I/O ), most normal cpanel shared hosting will not have such high Cloud Linux limits. Hence, your side will be slower because cloudlinux limits your CPU/RAM/I/o usage ). So its better to have a VPS OR a semi dedicated hosting ( shared hosting, with less users on a server, and more resources for each account than the normal limits i said above ).
    Plus, if you host another 9 websites that barely use any resources ( eg. static sites or new sites with little to no visitors ), then its better to go for a VPS

    Hope this helps !

    You will be not need to pay for cPanel license, This days you can get reseller hosting even under $3/mo while VPS is bit expensive even If price of VPS will be $3/mo then you will be need to pay for cPanel at $15/mo or something extra.

    When you use VPS, need configure all software . When you rent reselling all this do company what sell reselling to you. Also no need pay for extra control panels like Cpanel or Plesk

    Its a much cheaper way to host multiple websites too. I guess it totally depends on what you plan on doing.

    Usually reseller hosting servers are different and they have more resources so you could host many sites on them. Also, what many hosting providers offer for reseller hosting buyers, is free WHMCS license + WHM/cPanel, so you could cut down costs when reselling. Otherwise, you might have to buy WHM/cPanel license and WHMCS license yourself which is not really cheap on monthly basis.

    I agre with you but an disadvantage that I realized with reseller hosting is I can not use root account for it.
    If I use reseller hosting plan, I can require them to install any software that I want or configurating some for my websites?

    Yes, that's a disadvantage indeed! No reseller hosting provider allows root access since then you'd be able to access other reseller accounts and make changes there.
    As for the software installing the part, generally, it's not usual, as I believe. I think they only support the supported software (sounds funny), like WHMCS and WHM/cPanel. Installing other software is usually with an additional hourly fee, they have some kind of automatic installer or you might buy some kind of managed service which includes something like that.

    You need to use reseller hosting when you are less on budget

    The point of Reseller is that you do not need to handle everything and when you need support that you have someone above you who can do all the work for you. Because the one who your provider will be needs to do everything for you as per request from you. And with VPS is that lower but even is it possible. And with Reseller can you just save alot of money with huge resources! So you can grab one and test it out for a month and then you have enough time to decide it.

    A VPS even if administered, requires more work and administration. The reseller has the nice feature that everything is in a shared environment rather than being assured that it will work well. At least good companies should make sure it works properly.


    Yesterday I migrated a new customer reseller website from another provider.
