Other than hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you'll be able to generate hosting packages and sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you will also make a very good profit by owning a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller site 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 online payments. The advantage of 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're able to install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need in order to function efficiently. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you'll have certain limitations in this regard.
