Both our normal reseller account types and our VPS account types have the ability to create multiple control panels and user accounts on the fly, however, there are some differences in the account types which you should consider if using a VPS in a reseller capacity.

LOAD BALANCING: A normal reseller account is load balanced according to the number of accounts you are going to resell, and continually rebalanced to assure optimum performance. With a VPS account, we load balance differently, giving you a block of cpu and server power. You need to monitor the load of the accounts you add yourself. Each account added will take up more of your allocated account power. We of course monitor all servers, however, with a VPS we allow you to use up system resources without regard for disrupting your other accounts.

SOFTWARE ISSUES: With a normal reseller account we closely monitor what is installed in the system. Our staff is experienced and we put all features through rigorous trials to make sure they are safe. There are thousands of dangerous programs and scripts out there, as well as system upgrades which have bugs in them. With a VPS you have freedom to install software and adjust cpanel in many ways. However, because of this you may encounter software issues which can disable you if you do not know exactly what you are doing. You also have direct root access, which means you have the power to delete really important files. It can be dangerous if you are not an experienced webmaster.

CUSTOMIZATION: A VPS has direct root access, which means you can install server level programs at the root level. A reseller account has normal SSH access. The root area is protected and is only accessible by our staff.

UPGRADING: It is usually no problem to upgrade to a higher level VPS or to upgrade to a higher level reseller account. However, it is usually not possible to move from a reseller to a VPS account, and vice-versa.
