In addition to hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is a further reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to create your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to make website hosting plans and then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your personal sites on the server too, but you will also make a good profit by having a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have considerably more system resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need in order to operate effectively. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you'll have some restrictions in this regard.
