Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there is another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you will be able to generate website hosting package deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your own sites on the server too, but you can also make a very good profit by having a successful business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order 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 extra resources and you are able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need so as to work efficiently. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you will have certain limitations in this regard.
