Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is a further reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to start your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, since more and more people and businesses start their web presence, so they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you'll be able to create website hosting offers and then sell them, so you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your personal websites on the server too, but you can also make a very good profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more system resources and you are able to set up the server-side software which their sites may need to function efficiently. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you'll have some restrictions in this regard.
