    Help for a hosting newbie

    I need a hosting plan where I can host multiple domains, some business, some personal. I was thinking a reseller plan would be what I need, but now I run across VPS, which might be better. What do you guys think? What are the advantages of either? With VPS you can run your own programs? Thanks

    With a VPS you can run your own programs and do have more control however it also really helps to have expierence of using the UNIX command line if you go that route. If starting out I would go for a reseller

    I agree with vaserv. Although most VPS plans can include a control panel to help you manage your VPS, if you have limited or no experience administering your own server you may want to start out with a reseller plan.

    But while using your reseller plan, I'd recommend that you install a linux distro on a home machine (or use a virtual machine such as http://www.vmware.com) - and start learning It doesn't take long to learn the basics of linux administration.
