Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that more and more people and businesses start their online presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you can make hosting packages and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own websites on the server too, but you may also make a decent profit by running a successful 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 such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your customers will have a lot more resources and you're able to install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need in order to operate efficiently. The latter will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
