Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's one more reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, since more and more people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you will be able to create web hosting offers and then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you may also make a very good profit by having a prosperous 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 for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have considerably more resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need so as to function efficiently. The latter will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you will have some limitations in this regard.
