Webdev&Hosting - What way to go?
Since a couple of years I am doing websites for creative projects, sport clubs, doctors, artists and the like.. A couple of months ago I started offering hosting along with this (I also made a thread here on LET whether this would be a good idea) and well I have been using a private webhosting for it so far. With the growth of interest in my "new" offer on the clientside (as they often pay waaay too much for their hosting) I am looking to expand.
The question now is: Should I just upgrade my private hosting plan for more resources or go for a cpanel reseller? So far Ive been doing everything as "managed service" so the clients did not have access to their websites aside from ftp. cPanel would obviously give them more possibilities such as logging into their db, applying custom settings etc but the question is
a) Would I want that? Doesnt this shift away the necessity of having me as their "website manager"?
b) Most of them are..well no geeks. They come to me not because they search a Dev to contribute to their project but they are hiring me the get their very first web presence because they have no idea how to.
For these kinda people I cant see a big value in giving them cPanel access, right?
Basically I dont wanna limit my clients intentionally but at this rate, which would be the better choice? I mean I can see myself also taking more complex tasks in the future where a different clientset with more demands (geeks) may hire me so..
