Alpha is just next step up from MR without root server access.

why would you say you cant give support to 10 resellers so you move to dedi. as still you need to provide the same support to the 10.

you should only provide support to your direct clients as in my scenario

10 MR who have 10 R each who they have 10 shared account sill gives 1000 accounts on the server

you only provide support to the 10 MRs and it upto them to support their 10R and then them R to support their shared clients, but using MR they can soon fill up your server

You seem to have misunderstood my last post.

I referred to the MR customer. It becomes tough for him to provide support to his 10 or so reseller clients.

Can you relate to a real life situation? I haven't seen a single occurrence where this statistics match. I'd love to hear something that is a real life scenario, not speculation.

To clarify, if you let your imagination fly, 1 unlimited hosting would be enough to fill your entire server. While in real life, that never happens

When you say, alpha is the next destination for MR, still you are implying a misconception. The route should be MR > dedi if someone really cares about his clients. Managing a server with Alpha and managing a server with MR aren't the same. MR has the right tools for it, just like we have CloudLinux for shared hosting.

It is a simple concept

you have a VPS

you sell 10 Master Reseller accounts
each of these Master Resellers sell 10 reseller accounts which is 100 accounts on your VPS
each of these resellers now sell 10 shared accounts each so that is 100 x 10 = 1000

so now you have 1000 accounts on your server, but your contract is only with the 10 master resellers, so if these sell more reseller accounts then you can soon have a server filled and you have not control over any account apart from the 10 MR.

Only way you can control it is limit the amount of accounts a MR can add to the server.

I no longer offer MR accounts and i limit resellers to an initial 20 accounts, if they want to add more accounts then they just open a ticket and request this.

I also do random checks on all servers picking a selection of accounts and check these out.

and when new accounts are created and the domain does not look right then i will research the domain to see if it has any history and then ask the client to explain about the domain and website.
This way my servers remain clean and user friendly
I am pleased with my safety record as since i started in 1999 i have never had a DDOS attack or hack against any of my servers

We do not offer MR either but for the normal reseller we allow them as many accounts as their space and bandwidth can permit them. Of course we dont allow over selling on all shared servers.

This is where everything becomes unrealistic. Selling master reseller account has absolutely nothing to do with concept.

Second, you shouldn't even dream of selling shared hosting from a VPS.

I had one master reseller account in 2011.
Its totally depends on how the server owner want to do. I have seen may owner selling master reseller account for 2 or 4 usd month, can you expect satisfaction from it? Also many hosting owner have alpha reseller, super alpha reseller, mega super alpha reseller etc etc.
Always you have to choose good provider for master reseller.
You can choose VPS as well, then setup any free control panel for reseller hosting.

Because the performance would become subpar once you start putting clients on it. Of course, if you put only a few clients, it'll not differ much.

On a cPanel based server, resources are allocated per cPanel, so a VPS with 4 GB RAM, 2 CPU Cores, 20 cPanel accounts will perform way poorer than a cPanel with 1 GB RAM, 1 CPU core on a 32 GB RAM/24 core physical server.

so what is the difference of having 25 shared accounts on a VPS to having 1 reseller account who has 24 shared accounts.

NON as you still have 25 shared accounts on the server, just that 1 of then has been given reseller privileges.

EVERY account on a VPS is a shared account just that some are given resellers or master reseller privileges

Chances are, the performance for each account on a reseller hosting will be way higher than that of a VPS.

With a master reseller you haven't to worry about updating and similar things...and you can sell like a VPS...but there are some limitations of the reseller hosting that are problems if you offer professional services...

For profit master reseller accounts are good.You can also sell alpha reseller, super alpha reseller, mega alpha reseller at cheap cost.The you can make more money.I have seen many provider selling master reseller at $ 2-3/mo with a word "unlimited". Then what is cost of reseller on that same server? and shared? May be $0.001/mo.

For business, master reseller is also good, but you have o take care of resource.

Master Reseller Plans have become so popular. It's a pretty wise buy for the brand new web hosting providers.

In my opinion i could never trust a host that provide master reseller. It is better to buy a vps or a dedi.
