In addition to hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is one more reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, due to the fact that a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to make website hosting packages and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your own sites on the server as well, but you will also make a very good profit by running a lucrative business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as 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 use of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have much more system resources and you will be able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need so as to operate efficiently. The latter isn't possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you will have some restrictions in this regard.
