Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you can generate website hosting plans then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal sites on the server as well, but you will also make a good profit by owning a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is that your customers will have a lot more system resources and you can set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to operate properly. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
