Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there is one more reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because more and more people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you can make website hosting package deals and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own websites on the server too, but you may also make a decent profit by having a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller 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 benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional resources and you are able to install the server-side software which their sites may need in order to function efficiently. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you will have specific limitations in this regard.
