In addition to hosting resource-demanding websites, there's a further reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you will be able to make website hosting deals and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a decent profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the link between the reseller web 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 Internet payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your customers will have additional system resources and you're able to set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need so as to operate efficiently. The latter will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
