Apart from hosting resource-demanding sites, there's a further reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your web hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, because more and more people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to create hosting packages then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own websites on the server too, but you may also make a very good profit by operating a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the link between the reseller website 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 Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is the fact that your customers will have considerably more resources and you are able to install the server-side software that their sites may need so as to operate effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you will have some limitations in this regard.
