Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is a further reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to create your web hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, since an increasing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you can create website hosting offers and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a good profit by running a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, that will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web 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 are able to install the server-side software that their websites may need so as to work efficiently. The latter will not be possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you will have some limitations in this regard.
