In addition to hosting resource-demanding websites, there is another reason to acquire a virtual or a dedicated server of your own - to make your website hosting company. This is a constantly growing business, due to the fact 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 server, you can generate website hosting plans then sell them, so that you can not only cover your own expenses in case you host your own websites on the server as well, but you can also make a very good profit by owning a prosperous business. What you need for that is a server, a billing program, which will be the link between the reseller website and your web space, plus a business account with a payment processor for instance PayPal or 2CheckOut, in order to be able to receive Internet payments. The benefit from reselling server space over the use of an ordinary reseller program is the fact that your customers will have much more resources and you can set up the server-side software that their Internet sites may need to operate properly. The aforementioned is not possible with a shared hosting reseller program, as you'll have specific limitations in this regard.
