In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there is one more reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to launch your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, because a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, so that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a server, you can make hosting offers and 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 having a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional resources and you're able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need in order to function effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you will have some restrictions in this regard.
