In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to create hosting offers and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you will also make a great profit by having a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the link between the reseller web site 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 Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is that your customers will have extra resources and you will be able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need in order to work efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have certain restrictions in this regard.
