Apart from hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that more and more people and businesses start their web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you will be able to make web hosting deals then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your personal websites on the server as well, but you can also make a great profit by running a successful business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the link between the reseller site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is that your clients will have considerably more system resources and you are able to set up the server-side software that their sites may need so as to operate efficiently. The aforementioned will not be possible with a shared hosting reseller program, because you will have certain limitations in this regard.
