    Selling a VPS off as a Dedicated?

    Hello,

    I just found a great looking appealing site suposidly selling Dedicated Servers at an amazing price that i have never seen before.

    Brand New Dell Powerblade Server 80GB Hardrive, 600GB Bandwidth & cPanel Control Panel

    The thing is the price, That costs $50 per month. However I've never seen Dedicated So low priced before only VPS this price so it sounds fairly odd to me!

    So basically my question is, "Is it possible to sell a Dedicated off as VPS Account?"

    I guess the best price for cpanel(dedicated server) is $20/mo so the server have a cost of $30.

    $30/mo seems a bit low for a dedicated server (but in germany i've seen everything)

    Yes it is, particularly with cPanel. If you look at Server Information in cPanel and go to current disk usage, you will see /dev/vzfs and/or vzfs (Virtuozzo environment) As well, something else I noticed is that "Memory Information" and "Physical Disks" will not display anything in a VPS environment. So there are ways to tell if they have set you up on a physical dedicated server or a VPS/VDS.
