I’m a Hostdime customer and have no desire to switch to another provider. I currently have a VPS solution through them with a few sites running on this (approx. 12 at this time). Due to my requirements it makes more sense to go to their Reseller platform as this is more cost-effective. The downside here is I lose root access.

However, what I am asking myself while planning this out is do I really need it? Anyone familiar with these services of theirs care to comment? Aside from their website listing comparing the two services there isn’t much difference between them aside from the root bit.

How I would use their service is:
– Create cpanel accounts for customers and customize the cpanel environment a bit for my business
– Most sites running are using Joomla 2.5/3.0 with MySQl and some basic addons

My only concerns are:
– Any other Joomla users have any problems with this? There are some Joomla specific config files that might have to change for things like PHP which I assume you cannot change PHP settings in WHM without root access since that could effect the entire server. But some things can be modified via individual php.ini files on a site-by-site basis.

– Any limitations on things like defaulting specific webmail browsers?
