The Shared Hosting Accounts are meant for one owner and come with a single cPanel. You can host unlimited domains on a shared plan by adding domains to the “Addon Domains” the section of cPanel. Reselling is not permitted on shared hosting plans.

Advantages of shared hosting:

• User-friendly cPanel

• Host multiple domains

• Cost efficient

• Convenience

• Adequate resources

Disadvantages of shared hosting:

• Website crashes

• Can’t always expect the best performance

• Security

Reseller Hosting Accounts are only meant for one owner who likes to resell hosting and essentially act as their own hosting company. You can have anywhere from 10 to 250 separate cPanel accounts depending on which reseller plan you stick on to. So with a reseller account, you can set up each domain name with its own Control Panel.

The main difference is that reseller hosting is meant for selling web hosting and in case of shared hosting, it is for your own website.

Advantages of reseller hosting:

• Provides more flexibility and freedom

• No need to invest high to purchase reseller hosting

• Can earn better income without any tension

• The server maintenance cost is included in the package so if something goes wrong, then your web host will cover the cost of damages.

• There are no hidden or extra charges.

• You can make much profit by selling addons like Dedicated IP, SSL Certificate, Backup, Dedicated Hosting, and lot more.

Disadvantages of reseller hosting:

• Limited access to the server

• If you think or plan to change your current hosting provider, then it would be very difficult to shift the complete data of clients.

In VPS hosting, you have your own allotment of resources and it allows your visitors to enjoy faster loading times while in shared hosting that server may get sometimes swamped by requests or overloaded which might cause it to stop.

A good VPS hosting provider will always actively monitor its networks. This ensures the security of a server and defends it from malicious software, hacking, and virus attacks while in shared hosting, it can face a security issue by the server. These servers are usually affected by hacking attacks .

In VPS hosting, you have the flexibility to choose the operating system and software you want to install on your server while in shared hosting, you have to work on the application and software provided by the hosting provider and cannot use any other software aside.
