Apart from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's a further reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your website hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, considering that more and more people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to make website hosting deals then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses if you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a great profit by operating a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, payment 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 Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is that your clients will have considerably more system resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their sites may need in order to function properly. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared hosting reseller program, since you'll have certain restrictions in this regard.
