Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to launch your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, due to the fact that an increasing 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 hosting server, you will be able to create website hosting plans and sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses when you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you may also make a great profit by having a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller website 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 Internet payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is that your clients will have more system resources and you will be able to install the server-side software which their websites may need in order to function properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you will have some restrictions in this regard.
