Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to generate web hosting package deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own sites on the server too, but you will also make a decent profit by owning a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link between the reseller website 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 advantage of reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more system resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their sites may need so as to work properly. The latter isn't possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you will have specific limitations in this regard.
