A Cloud VPS is an emulation of a computer, also known as a virtual private server, that lives within a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. As where a Dedicated Server is a stand-alone, physical server that does not share resources. As with fixed resources, scarcity can lead to less than optimal performance for the resource-intensive application, which is why Dedicated Servers often outperform VPS instances.

Additionally, you'll want a web hosting service that offers Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) if you plan to sell products. Here's why: An SSL connection encrypts the data that travels between your site and users' web browsers, thus safeguarding the transmission of purchasing information. You've probably seen a green padlock in your web browser's address bar while logging into your online bank account or making online purchases. It's a symbol of trust. Some companies include a free SSL certificate when you sign up for a hosting plan, while others charge close to $100. You can save some money by shopping around for the services that offer the cheapest SSL plans.
At Resellers Panel, we have another concept of a CentOS-based Dedicated Server Reseller business.

With it, you can become a CentOS dedicated server reseller without having to buy the actual server - you simply name the price for it and we will do all the rest - set up the server, support your clients, arrange the fees with the datacenter, etc.

Moving your website to your dedicated personal server removes the risk of being affected by security vulnerabilities of other people’s websites. With shared hosting plans, your website is on the same server as other customers. With a dedicated server, your website or websites are the only sites on the server which means that security issues such as malware, intrusion hacks and viruses will never get through due to another website owner’s lack of security. If your business is getting high levels of traffic, your visitors could suffer due to bandwidth limits that are associated with shared plans. While shared plans are great for small websites, a dedicated server is essential for businesses that are outgrowing their current hosting services.
Selling off some of your server resources is a quick, simple way to defray some of the higher costs of your new dedicated hosting plan. Resellers effectively sublease server space to others and control the prices and partitioned computing resources. Although most hosts tailor reseller plans around a virtual private server, or VPS, you can start reselling with a dedicated server if you ask nicely and do some digging.

A dedicated server is ideal for businesses that run a high traffic website. It could alternatively be also used for those customers who want to take a dedicated server and carve out a shared hosting platform from it. While selecting a dedicated server hosting product, make sure to choose the right configuration of your server to allow your website/ business to function seamlessly.
You'll also want to consider how long you'll need dedicated web hosting. If it's a short-term project—say, less than a month or two—you'll typically receive a refund should you cancel your hosting within 60 days. Some companies offer 30-day money-back guarantees, while others offer 90-day money-back guarantees. Once again, it's beneficial to do your homework.

Hosts like InMotion, for example, pack plenty of RAM, CPU power, storage, and allocated IP addresses into each dedicated server plan, and package pricing starts right around $80 a month. No, this is not the lowest price tag you’ll find in the hosting market, but remember, dedicated hosting is the expensive hosting niche. You’re not sharing any of your server’s compute power or storage or bandwidth with anyone else, so you’re the only one paying for it all.
However, all customers need to be compliant with our Terms of Service. For eg., Your website should not utilize more than 25% server resources for a duration longer than 90 seconds. Also, the web hosting plan should not be used for file storage or sharing. While it is rare, we might have to suspend your account, if the resource usage is affecting the customers on the same server.
