Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, since more and more people and businesses start their online presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to generate hosting plans and then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you will also make a good profit by running a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is that your clients will have extra resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need to operate effectively. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you will have certain limitations in this regard.
