What is a VPS and Why Is It Important?

June 14, 2023
what is a VPS and why do you need it for amazon seller accounts

We can’t talk about buying or selling Amazon Seller accounts, without mentioning some caveats – namely suspensions due to related accounts. When you sell on Amazon, you verify your identity by providing personal information – legal entity, banking, credit, etc. Amazon actively collects that data. If you attempt to open a secondary seller account using any of those data points, you may receive the following warning: “We found a related account“, or “That information has already been used to open an Amazon Seller Account”. Equally important: Amazon detects related accounts via MAC and IP addresses, and even WI-FI router information. 

By using a VPS to connect to each Amazon seller account, you eliminate the potential to trigger a suspension due to having a “related account”.

What are some benefits of having a VPS?

  • Performance: With a VPS, you have dedicated resources allocated to your server. This means you won’t be affected by other websites’ traffic or activities, resulting in better performance and faster loading times for your website or applications.
  • Scalability: VPS hosting offers scalability, allowing you to easily upgrade or downgrade your resources as your website or business grows. You can quickly adjust your CPU, RAM, and storage requirements without experiencing downtime or disruptions to your services.
  • Customization: VPS hosting provides a high level of customization compared to shared hosting. You have full control over the server environment, including the choice of operating system, software installations, and server configurations. This flexibility enables you to tailor the server to meet your specific needs and requirements.
  • Security: Since each VPS operates in an isolated environment, it offers enhanced security compared to shared hosting. You are less vulnerable to security threats and breaches from other users on the same server. Additionally, you can implement custom security measures and access control policies to protect your data and applications.
  • Reliability: VPS hosting typically offers higher reliability and uptime compared to shared hosting. Since resources are dedicated to your server, you are less likely to experience performance issues or downtime due to server overload or maintenance activities.
  • Affordability: While VPS hosting may cost more than shared hosting, it is still a cost-effective solution for businesses and websites that require more resources and control than shared hosting can provide. With the ability to scale resources based on demand, you only pay for what you need, making it a cost-efficient option in the long run.

How do you Open a Second Account with a VPS?

Prepare your account application by having the following: 

  • Different bank account and credit card details for each Seller Central account 
  • New email address
  • Separate legal entity

Once your account is opened, instruct your team to ONLY access Amazon Seller Central via the VPS.
