Aside from hosting resource-demanding sites, there is another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to launch your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, considering that more and more people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you can create website hosting deals and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own sites on the server as well, but you can also make a very good profit by having a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, and 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 use of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have a lot more system resources and you're able to install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to operate properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you will have specific limitations in this regard.
