Other than hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as more and more people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you will be able to create website hosting package deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own sites on the server too, but you can also make a decent profit by having a successful business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the connection between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your customers will have considerably more resources and you will be able to install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to function efficiently. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
