Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's a further reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to launch your website hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you will be able to create web hosting packages and sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you may also make a very good profit by running a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have considerably more system resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to work effectively. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
