    The problem with vps is that all clients will know they are sharing a vps, rather then sharing a dedicated server.

    I would love to start a business that has stood through the years and is now a large business maintaining them self and their employees that started with $500.00. Going out and putting a few dollars into a company that isn't really turning any profit - is hardly considered to play up against someone starting a business for $500.00. It's more or less starting a hobby. -- not saying it can't be done --

    Who cares? Most clients that you would want to host with you really couldn't care less what they're hosted on as long as it works. People care about them self - does it work for them? If it does, and if you take care of them well then it seems you're doing great to them.

    Even customers say real hosts have root access. Because they don't like to wait for Reseller to ask main provider to make changes, etc.

    Reseller with end user support is great for web designers who don't want the hassle of managing the server admin side of things themselves though.

    Actually, I keep a resller account on hand at all times.... I have a reseller, VPSs, and much more.
    It fits in nice, because, keep in mind, with many reseller packages, you get a LOT of freebies...like WHM/WHMCS, cPanel for all the customers, vanity name servers...even if a client doesn't fall under the service of something under my reseller, I can still plug him right into the WHMCS billing software, which gives him all the features (as well as convenience for me).

    Without a reseller, I'd have to purchase and keep up with some billing and control panel for the shared hosting customers, and not be able to offer all the cool value-added stuff...without purchasing and setting up all the automation myself, anyway...
    This is the best signature in the world....Tribute!
    (It is not the best signature in the world, no. This is just a tribute)

    For smaller hosting companies starting out reseller hosting is a affordable way of going as well if smaller companies that do other services but want to offer clients web hosting and do not know much about hosting they have this solution that they can utilize.

    Well think about it like this, there are some people who want to learn. They don't just learn overnight, they have to start with something easy. And how? they can purchase a reseller hosting, cheap, easy to manage, not rocket science and also if they had a vps it would be alot more difficult.

    Arguing about what constitutes a "real" host is a pretty senseless (if not amusing) debate, since anyone can slide the scale anywhere they want. The important factor is to remember that from your average customer's perspective, a "real" host is defined by whether or not the customer's website works well. Your average paying customer doesn't care about datacenters or processor class or SAS vs SATA, they just want it to work.

    To that end, it makes perfect sense for some startup hosts to use reseller plans. It's gives them the opportunity to minimize their operating overhead at first, and then expand as they grow.
    I second you!

    Very much true. A loyal and honest host, who gets people online, provides them friendly and timely support accompanied by a reliable network is what a true host is.

    A host who's ego-centric, doesn't listen to his customer requests, doesn't provide great uptime and doesn't believe in "CUSTOMER DELIGHT" even if he has 10 42U racks, isn't a host!
