In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there's another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, because an increasing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to create web hosting package deals then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you will also make a great profit by owning a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link 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 web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is the fact that your customers will have extra resources and you can set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to operate efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you will have some limitations in this regard.
