Apart from hosting resource-demanding sites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to make website hosting offers and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you will also make a good profit by running a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor like 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 clients will have considerably more resources and you can install the server-side software which their sites may need in order to work effectively. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have some restrictions in this regard.
