    Their free version doesn't allow you to sell VPSes to third parties.

    The EULA doesn't let you resell VM's on their ESXi version. If you want to resell VM's, you would need to look at the ESX version.

    Sure you can. Just not with ESXi. There are a few hosts on WHT that sell VMWare-based VPSes, but as you can imagine, they're more expensive than OpenVZ/KVM/Xen.

    Hmm.. I actually recently read - think it was on wht - that if you VCP certification you are allowed to resell ESXi.. I thought it sounded a bit far out but im not sure... can anyone comment on this?

    That is not correct.

    You can be a member of the HPPP hosting provider partner program which gives you access to volume licensing pricing model on a per-vm basis. The more VCP's you have the more discount levels you qualify for. Expect to start out at around $35/month per VM license cost.

    Is just another good business trick from the hosting world and you cant deny this companies are very good dealers,so I wasnt wrong the free version dont allow resell,so the one that does is ESX,and how much does it cost?

    Thank you for reading me
