    for 200 websites that you don't know what traffic and server load will generate, i think you will need a dedicated box and not VPS

    Go with cloud hosting as you can expand/grow seamlessly without changing servers.

    If I were you I would buy a few different VPSes across a few different companies. Last thing you want is every single customer to be banging on your door when there is a problem in a datacentre (believe me, it burns you out very fast!)

    I think if you are using cPanel, the VPS license is half the price of a full license so you end up roughly the same in fees.

    You can keep 200 sites each with tens of thousands of pages on a $5/mo VPS with 1 core and 512MB RAM *IF* and only *IF* you have optimized your VPS for performance *AND* you are using a custom built, highly optimized CMS for the sites.

    If on the other hand you are using WP, Drupal, Joomla or any other popular bloated piece of crap CMS, then you might need a $200 dedicated server with multi-CPU and multi-core and lots of GB of RAM.

    To give you an example I have this 1-core, 512MB RAM VPS for $5/mo. It is setup with:
    - Nginx - communicating to CGI through unix socket and using static/fixed number of processes.
    - PHP + APC set to 32MB cache
    - MySQL with 32MB query cache

    The VPS can only handle 7 to 9 concurrent requests to a small wordpress site with no plugins (default setup, default theme, no caching plugin). A page generation for WP takes 0.1 to 0.2 seconds. That's max. 32400 requests/hour.
    On the other hand, it can handle between 150 to 300 concurrent requests to any of my custom CMS. A page generation here takes only 0.01 to 0.003 seconds. That's between 540,000 to 1,080,000 requests/hour. If I am to use full-page caching to static files however, the server can handle 3000 requests/second which translates to 10 million requests/hour. All of this while consuming for each request 0.25 to 0.75MB of RAM compared to 20-25MB with WordPress. And because I use Nginx instead of Apache, the memory consumption from the web server is constant and very low regardless of how many concurrent requests I am serving. All this for $5/month. On a 3GHz quad-core with 4 GB RAM, a similar but adapted setup would probably allow me to handle in excess of 1000 requests/sec and 10000 req/sec with caching enabled.


    So, as somebody said above, it matters a lot what you plan to run on it and what kind of traffic you have to be able to handle.

    If you think you are having normal traffic websites 200 i mean in general in shared hosting we experienced that if you are in web hosting business yourself and host your client's websites then all dont have high system resources requirements and even many have html website. If that is the case asking since you said "i want to start reseller webhosting buss." then you shall start with atleast 1GB RAM VPS and then confirm with your web host that they offer you help with upgrades if required in future :)

    I own a VPS company, our VPS's has been optimized to hold as much websites as they can our 512mb vps's has been running heavy wordpress websites around 5 and the load haven't even reached 0.2 .
    I would recommend you to purchase our 2048mb ram vps plan called (RVPS3) if you would like to try us let me know.
    By the way our packages include cPanel, and 7 days money back and price starts from 23.99$.

    nobody can tell what you need.
    the bottleneck could appear on a lot of things, CPU, RAM, bandwidth, HDD.

    What is the total daily traffic that you estimate ?

    I think you must yourself define what you need.
