    How to Split a Dedicated Server to Look like two Separate Companies

    We have a Dedicated (non-vps) server. We'd like to run two separate hosting sites off of it, one that offers unlimited plans and the other that offers limited plans. However we don't want to make one site look like a reseller of the other. If it was a VPS server, we'd separate it that way into two separate VPS accounts, but it's not.

    Is there a way to split up a dedicated between two separate hosting sites without making one look like a reseller of the other? What I mean is, right now the server is set up for one domain we use for hosting and if we set up the second domain and hosting site, it would work fine but if anyone checked, it would look like it was a reseller of the first.

    I wouldn't host your main website / help desk ticket system on the same server as your company website because if your site goes down, there goes your help desk ticket system

    Get a white label domain and set that as the hostname of the server, beyond that there's not much you can do except get two different IPs.
