Apart from hosting resource-demanding websites, there is one more reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to generate web hosting packages and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your personal websites on the server as well, but you can also make a great profit by owning a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller site and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is that your customers will have extra resources and you are able to install the server-side software that their sites may need so as to work properly. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared hosting reseller program, because you will have certain restrictions in this regard.
