    Hi all, I have started a web design company a few months ago just on the side and already have 5 clients on a hostgator shared hosting plan. I think it is time to upgrade, can anyone recommend me what to go for? Im looking a thrustvps 1gb ram vps deal, would a vps be best to host multiple small business websites without much traffic?

    It all depends on your personal choice whether to go with reseller hosting or vps package, however, as compare to resources vps is always one step ahead than reseller plans and it will also come more cheaper for you and vps is hassle free as well. In addition, vps offers a root access to your account so for your reseller business it could be turn a worthwhile.

    I think simple reseller accounts are generally more than enough for most smaller web design companies. Although there are cheaper options than HostGator around, sticking with the bigger companies like HostGator will often give better reliability and up time.
