    I would think you have more control over the server with VPS hosting as compared to reseller hosting plans

    Hi,

    Well, it really depends on what your needs are. For most people, the reseller's account should be sufficient but if you need control or trying to learn to get on to a dedicated server without the cost, the VPS can be a great way to go.

    I don't see the VPS taking over the reseller's account anytime soon. One main issue is that a reseller's account is most likely fully managed but with a VPS, you need to be at least fluent with server management and not be afraid to enter the realm of SSH.

    How much CPU load or RAM a reseller account can handle depends on how much free resources is left so on a lightly loaded server, you could almost use the full resources of the dedicated server. However with a VPS (if it is not oversold), you only get up to the resources of what you are provided and usually not more.

    Some sites may be best suited on a dedicated server and thus a lightly loaded reseller account may be able to handle that but probably may not really work well on a smallish VPS.

    I know ilovefreehosting.com offer nice VPS and Reseller web hosting http://ilovefreehosting.com/solutions at good rates

    Shared Hosting
    Shared Hosting includes our Business Class Hosting Plans. Shared Hosting is very similar to living in an Apartment Complex. All residents are in the same location and must share the available resources with everyone.These may include such things as the pool, parking lot, and play ground. In shared hosting, all accounts must share the available resources with all the other accounts on the server. These include CPU time, memory, and disk space. Want to compare shared hosting? Check out InMotion Hosting vs. HostGator.

    VPS Hosting
    VPS Hosting includes our 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB VPS Hosting Plans. VPS Hosting is similar to owning a Condo. While you still share things on the property, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining your own property and repairs inside the condo. There is also significantly less residents per building and assigned parking. On a Virtual Private Server, you are allotted resources that are not shared by everyone. The over all CPU time and memory are shared across all accounts on the machine, but at the same time portions of those resources are always dedicated to each account. This allows for more power and flexibility than being on a shared account

    The term VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. A VPS employs specialized virtualization technology that allows the partitioning of resources on a larger server (called a parent server) into smaller instances that run a fully contained operating system. Each of these partitions is considered a full server capable of hosting multiple websites on multiple user accounts.

    One of the key differences between a VPS and a classical shared server is in the way in which the resources are distributed between its users. The letter P in VPS stands for Private, which indicates that the resources allocated for the instance are genuinely yours and will not be further allocated to any other users. On a VPS, if you pull resources from the parent server, only that user should have access to it. Additionally, a VPS also allows us to possess root user level access (or server-wide access as a superuser.)

    Reseller hosting is a method of web hosting where the owner of a large server resells portions of the disk space and bandwidth to other users. In essence, the reseller rents out disk space for a website to different users, effectively providing access to the internet for that account. Reseller hosting usually comes with a control panel similar to the ones mentioned earlier (InterWorx, cPanel or Plesk) which provide for an easy and secure method of control over a websites’ functions and services.

    Herein, lies the core difference, 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

    The main difference between the two services is their intended purpose.
    Reseller hosting lets you partner with a host and sell their solutions as your own. Your clients will never know who the real provider is, but you are also responsible for the support servicing.
    VPS hosting is much more versatile, allowing you to start any kind of business and utilize the server resources as you wish. Managed VPS solutions also include expert support from the host. But that’s just scratching the surface.
