Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there is another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you can create website hosting package deals then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own websites on the server too, but you may also make a good profit by running a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, 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, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have extra resources and you're able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need in order to work efficiently. The latter will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you will have specific limitations in this regard.
