Other than hosting resource-demanding Internet sites, there's another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, since more and more 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 can create website hosting packages and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your personal Internet sites on the server as well, but you can also make a very good profit by operating a flourishing business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, and a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, so as to be able to receive web payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the usage of a standard reseller program is the fact that your clients will have considerably more system resources and you are able to install the server-side software which their Internet sites may need so as to function effectively. The aforementioned isn't possible with a shared website hosting reseller program, since you'll have certain limitations in this regard.
