Apart from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is a further reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to create website hosting packages then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your personal websites on the server too, but you can also make a great profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have much more resources and you'll be able to set up the server-side software which their websites may need so as to operate effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, since you'll have certain restrictions in this regard.
