Aside from hosting resource-demanding sites, there's another reason to buy a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your web hosting company. This is an ever-growing business, considering that an increasing number of people and businesses start their world wide web presence, so that they need web hosting space and a domain. If you have a website hosting server, you will be able to create website hosting offers and then sell them, so you can not only cover your expenses in case you host your own sites on the server as well, but you may also make a very good profit by having a successful business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, that will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, as well as a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive online payments. The advantage of reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is that your clients will have additional resources and you can set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need so as to operate effectively. The latter is not possible with a shared web hosting reseller program, since you'll have specific restrictions in this regard.
