Curious what you all think. Do you think it's best to have a dedicated server with one instance of cPanel and all the clients you can fit, or a large KVM virtual installation with instant reboots, fast restoration (globally), etc.

What do you think are the pros and cons of each option?

I prefer the dedicated without any doubt and without virtualizing it.

Hi @Bashed

It really depends on a lot of things. For my personal stuff, I prefer virtualized environments but a lot of folks like hardware servers for bigger projects. It really depends on what fits your budget and project and not really a question we can answer here for you.

Thanks!
