In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there's another reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you'll be able to generate website hosting package deals and then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a good profit by owning a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have considerably more resources and you can install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need in order to work efficiently. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, because you will have some limitations in this regard.
