    Please keep in mind that a hosting business is not only selling spaces and computing power but also supporting customers and making sure that the servers are up and running normally. Thus some technical knowledge is required in operating a web hosting business.

    A reseller hosting is basically a service of reselling disk space from a provider. VPS, on the other hand, is a virtual private server. It is simply a server that one can do almost anything with it. One can also use VPS to start a hosting business by creating packages and selling disk space of the server.

    If you have good technical knowledge of managing servers then VPS is a good hosting service to start your web hosting company as it is more flexible and often save cost in the long term. But if you have no technical skill at all then reseller hosting is a much better choice as you do not need to manage the server since it is the responsibility of the host.

    Thank you for sharing such a piece of beneficial information. Now I can able to understand the small points of starting a web hosting. You are right, hosting business is not only selling spaces and resources, but also supporting customers and making sure that the servers are up and running normally this is also important.

    Reseller hosting is different from VPS.

    VPS hosting actually gives you dedicated resources for your website with virtualized private servers that have storage, RAM etc to host your website. Ideally just one website.

    You can take control of your website and then scale it as per your needs.

    When it comes to reseller hosting, you can host several websites. You are given a cPanel or WHMCS to control the hosting and make changes within the hosting if you want to. Like adding scripts etc. Essentially you can do a business by becoming a reseller and getting yourself a reseller hosting account.

    Now, personally, I recommend ResellerClub because they understand this community of web developers and web hosting professionals very well. They are much aware of their problems too, so if your friend is looking to become a web host or have a business in this field, he should read up about ResellerClub and know and understand their plans. Their support is helpful so any queries that can be directed to them, he should.

    Reseller Hosting allows you to run an online business where you provide hosting service to your customers, while in VPS you could be running any kind of business and only need to purchase the hosting to manage the websites you have.
