In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your website hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, because more and more people and businesses start their online presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to make web hosting plans and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your own websites on the server as well, but you may also make a great profit by operating a successful business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the connection between the reseller site and your web space, as well as 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 usage of a regular reseller program is that your customers will have more system resources and you'll be able to set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need in order to work effectively. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you will have certain limitations in this regard.
