In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there is another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, because a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to make website hosting offers then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own websites on the server as well, but you may also make a great profit by having a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the link 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 web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your customers will have additional system resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need in order to function effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
