In addition to hosting resource-demanding websites, there is another reason to get 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 online presence, so they need website hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you'll be able to make web hosting package deals and sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your personal websites on the server too, but you may also make a very good profit by running a successful business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a regular reseller program is that your clients will have extra resources and you are able to install the server-side software that their websites may need so as to work effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you will have specific limitations in this regard.
