Other than hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to launch your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to generate hosting package deals and sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a good profit by owning a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the link between the reseller website 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 use of a regular reseller program is the fact that your customers will have extra system resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their websites may need to work effectively. The latter will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, because you will have some restrictions in this regard.
