    Using different server for mainsite/reselling domain

    Hi there,
    currently I have clients sites and my own domain hosted on my servers via my re-seller account. This I know is really bad practice if anything should happen then it looks like i've just buggered off.

    So what is the best way of separating my main website and re-seller server? I assume maybe cheap shared hosting? I will need a dedi IP/SSL for my biiling sub domain but apart from that I think a standard shared plan would do?
    Any recommendations, UK preferably as if my website is slow loading for UK customers they could assume my servers are slow too.
    Thank for any help you give.

    A few of our resellers have a separate shared plan for their main domain. They typically ask us to place the account on a different server than where their reseller account is hosted. In most cases, this is a good start.

    Alternatively, you can look at a decent VPS for your main site and customer portal. It'll allow you more control over your hosting environment than shared hosting would. In terms of VPS plans, we have some backup VPS's at Ramnode and they have been absolutely great. While they are not in the UK, they do have space in the Netherlands.

    I think something like a vps would as you say offer me much more flexibility and would be something I would defiantly look into, however I currently do not have the experience to self manage a server so at the moment may be a little bit more hassle than it's worth.
