Aside from hosting resource-demanding websites, there is one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to generate website hosting deals and then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own websites on the server too, but you may also make a great profit by running a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your customers will have extra system resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to function efficiently. The latter will not be possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you will have some restrictions in this regard.
