Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, which means that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to make hosting offers then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own sites on the server as well, but you may also make a very good profit by running a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as 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 additional resources and you can install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need so as to operate properly. The latter isn't possible with a shared hosting reseller program, since you'll have some limitations in this regard.
