Anyways, since that's a decision outside of my control I do not believe that has to do with my budget. Given like being told delivering a parcel will cost you way more than you expected because it done on a bike and not a truck for the job.
but when a host works out their price they have to take into account all their overheads.
It is not just a case of a host purchasing a ded server or a VPS.
WHMCS or alternative
all add to the costs that has to be passed onto their clients.
yes you could pick up a reseller for a few $ but these will be on oversold servers, so you will not get the performance or resourced paid for.
like say a provider pays $100 for a VPS to run resellers on. To prevent overselling he decides to only allow 6 resellers on the server, so that is $16.67 it is costing the provider per account. the provider then has to put his markup on that so he can make a profit, so say he wants a 30% markup, so he has to charge $21.67 to make that profit per account.
