    I searched and I couldn't find an answer to my specific question. Sorry if I missed it.

    I have a hostgator reseller account. I originally signed up for it because I know they won't oversell the reseller accounts, they don't have "unlimited" plans.
    Is the Hostgator Shared account just as speedy? I build websites for small businesses and am concerned about website speed and server reliability. Would these be the same? has anyone used both and noticed a difference?

    I know if I switch to shared I'll loose my super cool custom nameservers. Telling clients ns1.mydomain.com is much better than ns1.websitewelcome.com

    Thoughts?
