In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there is a further reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so that they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you can make website hosting deals and sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you will also make a very good profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is that your customers will have considerably more resources and you can set up the server-side software that their sites may need to work effectively. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you will have certain restrictions in this regard.
