    What is the difference between reseller and VPS hosting plans?

    I have just come across aspnix.com as I am looking for windows hosting solution and found out that the price is the same for their reseller and VPS hosting plans.
    Moreover, I recognized that it offers specials: sign up and win Zune HD 32GB or Windows 7.

    So, what hosting solution would you choose?

    VPS is much the same level with dedicated server, so you can create reseller accounts. However, if you are not familiar with VPS/server, you should be careful when choosing a VPS

    Shared Web Hosting is the most common type of budget web hosting. You are hosted on a
    server with different websites, that you share the server with. Shared Hosting allows multiple customers to share the resources of one server, so it is a very economical solution to host websites. All websites share the same IP and server hostname with shared hosting. This type of Hosting is not always well suited for all types of sites, especially for high traffic sites, because it is not always possible to isolate each website from other sites that share the server.

    A VPS is just like a dedicated server in terms of functions it offers to its users like root SSH access, administrative control, flexibility to install custom software and applications etc but at an affordable price compared to a dedicated server. As a user you can get your own virtual environment with dedicated amount of server resources for your own usage. The control provided by VPS Hosting is perfect for developers or those who require total control and need to have the ability to configure the server the way they like, and install custom software as needed.

    VPS Hosting is an isolated environment whereas in a shared hosting environment the server resources are shared among all accounts on the server. In a shared environment you have limitations that are determined by the host whereas with VPS Hosting you are in control - you decide how and what your server is to run.

    Reseller hosting designed for those who want to become Web hosts themselves. One gets a large amount of space and bandwidth that can be divided up among as many sites as the user wants to put on his account. A reseller account is placed on the same server with other reseller accounts, just like with shared hosting but there are fewer accounts.

    Virtual Private Server technology enables one physical server to house several Virtual Environments which behave exactly like an isolated stand-alone server. This is often a much more affordable solution than a dedicated server, normally offering all the same benefits, such as root access.

    VPS is the same as dedicated server.
    Reseller is the same as shared just with ability to resell.
    I assume that is the main difference

    VPS is a basic type of web hosting, as dedicated, shared, and semi-dedicated server hosting are. reseller hosting can be applied to shared and VPS hosting also, reseller means buying a bigger plan - dividing it into smaller packages and earn money on it,

    As it turned out, aspnix.com is reputable web hosting provider, I have read many positive reviews about their services.
    No doubt, you will get more privileges if you choose VPS hosting solution.

    VPS versus Reseller Hosting

    Mentioned the 3-letter words, VPS, it carves a smile to certain people. Why? Because it resembles a dedicated server. This is particularly a cheerful news for those folks who wish to own a dedicated server but cannot afford to do so. Basically, as most of you would have known by now, VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. The physical server is separated into a few partition and these partitions are the VPS-es. It gives you the feeling of having a stand-alone server when you purchase the hosting spaces. You are isolated from your neighbours and barely know each other although under the same roof.

    The difference is in the purpose. Vps can be used for the personal needs mostly but reseller account for the reselling
    I believe that is what that was designed for

    Since VPS has had much better uptime, is much faster, and gives you much more freedom, since you can install any panel you want, you will be satisfied using VPS hosting solution offered by aspnix.com. It has an amazing reputation for providing secured Windows shared, reseller, VPS and dedicated server plans.

    VPS is not a dedicated server.

    In a VPS a particular amount of ram and cpu is alloted for your server.

    Where as in a shared or reseller entire cpu and ram is shared among all accounts in the server.

    The advantage of vps is you can install any modules or application you want since you have root access but this is not the case in the shared and reseller.
