Aside from hosting resource-demanding sites, there is a further reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to launch your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, considering that 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 website hosting server, you can generate website hosting package deals then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses if you host your own Internet sites on the server too, but you can also make a good profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link between the reseller web site and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor such as PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of a regular reseller program is the fact that your customers will have a lot more resources and you'll be able to set up the server-side software which their sites may need so as to function effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you will have specific restrictions in this regard.
