In addition to hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's one more reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that more and more people and businesses start their web presence, which means that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to generate website hosting packages and sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your personal sites on the server as well, but you may also make a very good profit by running a flourishing 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 like PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of an ordinary reseller program is that your customers will have much more resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their sites may need to work effectively. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you'll have some limitations in this regard.
