In addition to hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is a further reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start 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 hosting server, you can make hosting plans then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you may also make a great profit by running a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is that your clients will have much more system resources and you will be able to set up the server-side software which their Internet sites may need to work properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
