    Cheaper to purchase a VPS + Billing software than reseller account?

    Hello everyone,
    Wouldnt it be cheaper to purchase a VPS and a billing software, WHM autopilot in my case, instead of a reseller plan? Does anyone know of a sub-$50 VPS with cPanel/WHM and lots of space/bandwith?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    I thought a VPS doesn't come with that kind of software :\

    A VPS will probably be slower than a full reseller though. (depends on provider.

    www.servint.net
    www.powervps.com
    www.liquidweb.com

    ^ all great VPS providers

    They don't offer WHMAP though.

    Checkout www.clientexec.com which is cheaper and does about the same thing..

    What do you guys think of vps+software (usually only billing software) vs. reseller plan? Also, do you guys know if you can get Client Exec to be automatic like WHMAP?

    Thanks for the great help!,

    I think it would be better to spend the money on something you know has what you need/want. (WHM.AP) A servint VPS goes great with WHM.AP. Easy to install, use, etc.

    VPS can come with any software if the provider want to offer it as a package.

    ClientExec can auto create accounts, but this is generally a bad idea.

    I think a VPS is definately beter since it gives you more freedom. But check this out:

    Servint -

    50$ per month for hosting
    20$ per month WHMAP
    12$ one time fee for Fantastico
    Lots of Freedom
    ____

    70$ per month + 12$ one time fee

    HostGator -

    25$ per month Hosting
    WHMAP Free
    Not much Freedom
    ____

    25$ per month


    ---------------

    Its upto you to take the decision. Both options are great. It depends on your needs & budget.
