Apart from hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there is a further reason to purchase a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, as a growing number of people and businesses start their online presence, which means that they need web hosting space and a domain name. If you have a website hosting server, you'll be able to generate hosting package deals and then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses when you host your personal Internet sites on the server too, but you may also make a good profit by running a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, which will be the connection between the reseller web site and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor like PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have much more resources and you're able to set up the server-side software which their websites may need in order to function effectively. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, since you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
