Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there is one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as a growing 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 generate hosting deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you may also make a good profit by operating a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller 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 benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is that your customers will have additional system resources and you are able to install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need in order to operate properly. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you'll have some restrictions in this regard.
