Apart from hosting resource-demanding sites, there is a further reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you can generate website hosting offers and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal sites on the server as well, but you will also make a decent profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order 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 additional system resources and you can set up the server-side software which their websites may need so as to work effectively. The latter will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you will have certain restrictions in this regard.
