Thread: VPS or Reseller

  1. #1

    VPS or Reseller

    Hi there,

    I was hoping someone could clarify what I need to manage these sites and future sites effectively, should I go with a reseller or VPS account? With the potential pros and cons of each.

    The breakdown of my sites are as follows:

    48MB Disc Space, 8GB Bandwidth
    -
    193MB Disc Space, 40GB Bandwidth
    -
    50MB Disc Space, 1.2 GB Bandwidth
    -
    211MB Disc Space, 0.25 GB Bandwidth
    -
    36MB Disc Space, 0.15 GB Bandwidth
    -
    40MB Disc Space - About to go live - Around 4GB-8GB Bandwidth
    -
    And potentially 4 other sites each around:
    59MB Disc Space, 0.3 GB Bandwidth

    Any other questions please ask


    Thanks

    Firstly, Are these sites your own or clients? If clients, then reseller. Thats too little for a VPS.

    It all depends on the resources your sites use not the diskspace or bandwidth. Remember that reseller accounts are still in a shared environment whereas VPS accounts are given dedicated resources.

    well if all your sites were major popular forums, the diskspace would be low, bandwidth perhaps would be high but mysql usage would be quite high and would probably be too intensive for a shared server. Resources are CPU, memory, database...

    Not all VPS are given dedicated resources OpenVZ operates similar to shared hosting but can operate separably from the rest of the node which gives the appearance of isolation with its own container. Xen is given fully dedicated memory/swap and a Partition to operation within just like a read dedicated server. Both are great technologies but are quit different.

    With your hd space needs and low bandwidth usage it would be very unlikely you will use significant CPU memory resources for mysql operations. You would be fine on a reseller account but if you had the budget to move to a VPS it will offer more freedom and growing room.

    If you intend to grown your business then a reseller account will be quit temporarily and you will likely have to move to a VPS sooner than later. But if growth is slow and very little effort goes into gaining new clients than there is no need to move to a VPS.

    This is very much dependent on the resources each of your sites use, but it seems like you would only need a reseller account.

    I am assuming the sites are on separate shared accounts? And thus will assume you have been fine upto now on a shared environment --> No need to upgrade to a VPS just yet.

    Hi

    I recommend a Reseller Account to you, A VPS you likely won't need as your usage is really low!

    I think a VPS account can pretty much handle this for you now, but if you need more control and you're good at managing VPS, then you can try it out.

    But still the reseller is good choice.

    I have found that it is worth paying a little extra for a reliable reseller than paying a similar amount or probably more for an un-managed VPS. Best of luck.

    A Reseller account will be good decision for your sites on the basis of breakdown shared by you.

    a Reseller gives you more spece and bandiwdth as in this case, you would go for a reseller account as its more worth

    a VPS gives you control over things but if you need more space/bandiwdth to allocate then it will be very expensive.

    my suggestion is a reseller account
