Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to generate hosting packages then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own sites on the server as well, but you can also make a good profit by operating a successful 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, and 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 use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have a lot more system resources and you're able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need in order to work efficiently. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
