A reseller can host multiple domains at one reseller plan .he is given a control panel to manage hosting account of his customers. With reseller plan you won’t have to concern about server security, software installations and server management, as hosting providers is responsible for all these activities. If you start feeling that your website is attracting heavy traffic and being unable to respond efficiently then you need to upgrade your plan for acquiring more resources. Virtual Private Server is the option where you get virtualized distributed environment still sharing resources with other user but with some limitation.VPS may be called as bridge between Reseller and Dedicated hosting as it provides more resources than reseller and less than dedicated.
