Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's a further reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you'll be able to generate website hosting plans and sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a very good profit by having a flourishing 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 web payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is that your clients will have extra system resources and you can install the server-side software which their sites may need to work properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you will have specific limitations in this regard.
