Apart from hosting resource-demanding websites, there's one more reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to generate website hosting plans and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own websites on the server too, but you will also make a good profit by running a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the connection between the reseller website and your web space, and 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 standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have extra system resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to operate efficiently. The latter is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, because you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
