    I am looking to expand from VPS to Dedicated and need advice!

    Hey,
    I currently own a VPS on a offshore server unmanaged. And in order for my company to grow I think I need to expand to a Dedicated Server. However I don't want to go in too deep and find I cannot set up the Server. Is it much harder than VPS? Is it easy to set up VPS accounts on a Dedicated Server?
    Many Thanks Josh

    No, if it is a true VPS with full root access you should be ok. As for running VPS's on a dedicated server, that deepens, for example, which virtualization you will use, your linux knowledge etc....

    If you have already a VPS running, you won't have problems setting up a dedicated server. It's 99,9% the same thing.

    You shouldn't worry about taking this decision.

    Ok thank you, the only thing that I think I will strugle with is setting up a VPS. Because in my current VPS I have the zamfoo reseller plugin so can upgrade accounts to different levels easily, however with dedicated I know you don't have this option so wouldn't know where to start?
    Finally is there money to be made in selling VPS? More than selling reseller and shared?
    Thanks Josh

    Is there any tutorials that could help? Because I want to make sure I can do it before I jump in and buy a dedicated.

    Yes, selling VPS is profitable. BUT you need high hardware investments. Minimum RAID-10, a good RAID controller, and so on...
