Apart from hosting resource-demanding websites, there is one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to launch your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you can generate website hosting plans and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a great profit by having a successful business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional system resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to work efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you will have some restrictions in this regard.
