Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there's one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, because an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to generate website hosting deals then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses if you host your personal sites on the server too, but you can also make a very good profit by owning a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional system resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need so as to function efficiently. The latter isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
