Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that an increasing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to create web hosting offers and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your own websites on the server too, but you may also make a great profit by having a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have extra resources and you can install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need so as to function efficiently. The latter isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you will have some restrictions in this regard.
