Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's a further reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, since more and more people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you can make web hosting offers then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you may also make a great profit by operating a successful business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive Internet payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your customers will have extra resources and you're able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need so as to work effectively. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you will have certain restrictions in this regard.
