Dedicated Server vs. Reseller Account.
Dedicated server or reseller account? That is a question that most people who are ready to start a web hosting business ask. There are different benefits for each solution. In this article we will explain whether a reseller account or a dedicated server is best for you.
Why Should I Choose a Reseller Account?
You should choose a reseller account if you are a new business owner who does not know how to manage a dedicated server. Managing a dedicated server can be time consuming if you are not proficient at server management. With a reseller account our team of experts manages the server that your web sites are hosted on. A reseller account is also a fraction of the cost of a dedicated server. Usually a reseller account is a good place to start because you can upgrade to a dedicated server at any time.
Why Should I choose a dedicated server?
You should choose a dedicated server if you need more control over your server than a reseller account. A dedicated server is for someone who is proficient at server management. With a dedicated server you can choose your own control panel as well as what software to install. With a dedicated server you get root access to the server, something that you do not get with a reseller account. A dedicated server also allows you to sell reseller accounts. (*Note: We do allow people without dedicated servers to sell reseller accounts. Please contact us.) With a dedicated server you can also sell web hosting accounts.
