In addition to hosting resource-demanding websites, there is one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to create website hosting plans then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you may also make a great profit by owning a successful business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web 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'll be able to install the server-side software that their sites may need so as to function effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
