Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, which means that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to create website hosting plans and then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own sites on the server too, but you may also make a good profit by owning a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have much more system resources and you will be able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need so as to function efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have some restrictions in this regard.
