Aside from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's another reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, as an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, which means that they need hosting space and a domain name. If you have a hosting server, you can generate website hosting deals and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a decent profit by running a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, billing software, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive online payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is that your customers will have more resources and you'll be able to install the server-side software that their Internet sites may need so as to operate efficiently. The latter isn't possible with a shared hosting reseller program, because you'll have certain restrictions in this regard.
