Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you will be able to generate website hosting package deals then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own websites on the server too, but you can also make a good profit by owning a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is that your clients will have extra resources and you'll be able to set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need in order to operate properly. The latter isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you'll have some limitations in this regard.
