In the world of hosting, when you find a solid marriage from a provider, to leave and go elsewhere…that elsewhere can either be 50% great, or a 50% disaster waiting to happen.
Look at this way. The service you provide your clients has to be reflective of what you would deserve for yourself. But a few things aren’t adding up;
– 29 cPanel accounts
– 90% of my accounts are church/ministry related and not charged by me for hosting.
So 26 of the 29 accounts…do they pay KnownHost directly…and you made affiliate income from the sale?
The remaining 3 accounts are what you currently pay for?
I was in your shoes years ago, and going back to a Reseller would be a step down…especially if things are currently good. With the churches…if they’re still your clients, you should look into selling them hosting space…which if they’re already on your VPS, then are they getting these accounts for free? Or was it included in the design price?
Now say the churches came aboard, and you were able to charge each one $10 a month…that would be $260 a month, which would cover your expenses, give you room to upgrade, invest in WHMCS, and still have residual income left over.
Coincidentally a similar topic was in another recent thread. With a VPS that’s exclusively for WordPress, you have more control over resources and security. Not so much with a Reseller, since most Reseller accounts are on a Shared server.
