Apart from hosting resource-demanding sites, there's a further reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your website hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, as more and more people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to create web hosting package deals then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you may also make a good profit by owning a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your customers will have extra system resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software which their sites may need in order to function properly. The latter will not be possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
