Other than hosting resource-demanding sites, there is another reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, which means that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to create website hosting plans then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a decent profit by operating a prosperous 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 such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have much more resources and you're able to set up the server-side software that their websites may need to operate properly. The latter isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
