Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, considering that an increasing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you can create hosting package deals then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a decent profit by running a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is that your customers will have extra system resources and you can install the server-side software that their websites may need in order to function effectively. The latter will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have specific limitations in this regard.
