Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is one more reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that more and more people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to generate web hosting offers then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you may also make a decent profit by owning a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software which their sites may need so as to work efficiently. The latter isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
