Other than hosting resource-demanding websites, there's a further reason to get a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to start your website hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, considering that an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you will be able to generate web hosting package deals then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a great profit by owning a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have much more system resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need in order to work efficiently. The latter will not be possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, as you'll have certain restrictions in this regard.
