What sort of issue did you have with Veerotech
? Let's make sure you avoid that in the future. (That said, Veerotech
is an excellent host. The owner, Brent, is a member of this forum, and is one of the most helpful hosting owners you'll ever meet.)
A VPS is never just $50. Don't get yourself into a bad situation. There are hidden costs.
And even a "managed" host is not really fully managed.
You're probably used to hosts that have optimized servers with caching and commercial software like CloudLinux, LiteSpeed, cXs, paid mod_security rules, etc. When you add those things up, it's easily another $50 per month or more. And without them, you server is slow and insecure. Lots of people jump on VPS bandwagon without knowing what they're getting into.
With reseller hosting, that was all taken care of for you.
So ask yourself --- do you want to spend all of your time making a server run, or simply using it.
- If the former, VPS.
- If the latter, reseller hosting.
