Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as a growing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to generate web hosting plans then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own websites on the server too, but you can also make a good profit by having a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for example PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is the fact that your clients will have more resources and you're able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need in order to operate efficiently. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you will have some limitations in this regard.
