In addition to hosting resource-demanding sites, there's one more reason to obtain a virtual or a dedicated server for yourself - to make your hosting company. This is an ever expanding business, due to the fact that an increasing number of people and businesses start their web presence, so they need hosting space and a domain. If you have a server, you'll be able to make website hosting deals and sell them, so that you can not only cover your expenses when you host your own sites on the server too, but you will also make a decent profit by having a profitable business. What you need for that is a server, payment software, that will be the link 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 an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your clients will have additional system resources and you can install the server-side software that their sites may need to work efficiently. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you'll have certain restrictions in this regard.
