Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that 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 hosting server, you can make website hosting plans then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own sites on the server too, but you will also make a good profit by running a flourishing 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, so as to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is that your customers will have considerably more resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need so as to function properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have some restrictions in this regard.
