Web designer handles each of domain names separately. Virtual Private servers can be easier for users and configurable by them. Also such servers can be used if your client wants to provide website with highest level of security.
This is perfect solution for web designers who have a lot of clients. So you can use allotted hard drive space and bandwidth to host more sites for less money on behalf of third parties. Such servers provide clients with the full control over their reputation. The reseller can rent dedicated hosting services or resell shared servers.

Thus you or your client will have a full control over the server. You can choose operating system and hardware. In comparison with shared hosting dedicated servers are more flexible. Choosing this type of server must be very thoughtful decision. Such projects need close and frequent cooperation between web designer and the client.
