Apart from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, considering that an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you can generate web hosting offers then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own websites on the server as well, but you will also make a great profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional system resources and you will be able to install the server-side software which their sites may need in order to function properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
