Apart from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your web 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, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you will be able to generate hosting deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own sites on the server as well, but you may also make a good profit by running a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need in order to work properly. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you'll have some restrictions in this regard.
