Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, considering that a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to create web hosting offers then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you will also make a very good profit by running a successful business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, 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, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is that your clients will have additional resources and you can set up the server-side software which their Internet sites may need so as to work efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared hosting reseller program, because you will have certain restrictions in this regard.
